Transcripts

1. Introduction: they say a picture is worth 1000 words, and that couldn't be more true. Using pictures and videos can be a very powerful way of storytelling or communicating an important message. My name is Stephen I. N a content creator and instructor. Over the years, I've created content for multiple platforms, which has generated 10 to millions of views and also about hundreds of thousands of followers. And a key component to being effective in making content for the Internet is being able to effectively story, tell or communicate your message, and a great way to do that is by using pictures and videos. For this course, I'm gonna show you how to create a beautiful slideshow in my movie. I think this is a really great practice because I'm movie is free and it's readily available to mostly everybody. But to this is a good introduction into using the software and also introducing some of the concepts to better storytelling. So whether you're inspiring filmmaker or someone who simply wants to share great memories or story with your family and friends, this course is great for you. So I'm very happy that you decided to stop by and let's go ahead and get started 2. Getting Started: So before we jump in my movie and start editing and putting together our great slide show, what I'm gonna do is take you to a really good website, which is something that I use all the time, actually, And if I were you, I wouldn't bookmark this as a future resource. So that way, even after you're done with this course, this is, I think, really resource which will help you in your creative journey. So let's go and jump into the computer and take a look here. So the first thing I'm going to do is go to a website called unspool ash dot com. And this is one of my go to sites when it comes to getting royalty free and copyright free images. So any type of project they working on online when it comes to using creative stuff like pictures, videos, music, you want to make sure that you're using it with the proper rights and authority, right? You don't wanna be using somebody's picture if they don't give you the permission. So unspool ash dot com is a really great website where they have a lot of high quality pictures, and you also have that license or that right to use them. Also to illustrate something year ago website called similar web dot com. This is simply a website that shows you the real time traffic analytics for any different website. And if we take a look here and if we take a look here globally, this websites ranked 8 33 on average, there are averaging around 30 million total visits per month and it continues to grow. So as you can see, this is a very reputable site. Definitely one of the biggest, fastest growing websites when it comes to getting high quality pictures for different types of creative projects like this at least wanted to make you aware that this website exists. And this is really helped me out. Discovering this before the course did start, I did download several pictures that we're gonna be using for our slideshow for this example on. For this For this project, we're gonna pretend like we're making a slide show off nature and different nature shots or safe places we visited throughout the years. And we won't make a slide show to show our family and friends. So we'll go into my movie here actually attached all the pictures that will be using. So that way, if you want to edit the exact pictures I'm using, you could go and do that. Or you could go back toe on Splash, download whatever pictures you'd like. So totally up to you. But the first thing we're going to do is once we're in I movie here is we're gonna first import the media that we're gonna be editing. So we're gonna click on this section here, the import media, click that arrow, and then we're going to select the files. So we're gonna go here and select the files already. Have them saved. So highlight, um, import selected. Then, As we can see, we now have the media that we're gonna be working with to actually at it. And one thing toe beware of here is so I imported seven different pictures, which I downloaded from on slash dot com. Here the screen box here is a music track. So later on in the course, I'm going to show you how to edit. Include music with your slideshow to help add an extra element to it. Another cool thing about this is if you notice whenever you click on the specific media, right? So right now I'm clicking on this picture of the tree. Notice how there's ah, yellow box that highlights around it that indicates that it selected, then also on the right hand side here and also displays whatever I have selected. So that way, in case you want to maybe preview something or see how it looks, you can simply hover your mouse over top of it or click on it, and it will display it over here on the right hand side, when we're dealing just with a still frame pictures. It's pretty easy and straightforward to see what the picture looks like. But keep this idea in mind when it comes to using I movie for other projects because, let's say we were editing videos. The videos would also be here in this section, so if you have videos here, you can also hover over them. And as you move the mouse left to right, that also play the video on the right hand side. So I do have a whole another course. I goes more in depth about high movies, so we're not gonna go too far into video editing. But at least one make us aware of the concept of first and foremost how to import the media and the data and then eso in the next section, we're gonna actually create our slideshow using some pretty cool, pre designed templates that they give us. 3. Themes: The thing I really like about movie is they understand that creatives like you and me have different visions, right? We have different ideas of water. Project looks like and away they make the whole process that much easier for us is by creating different themes in the beginning. So that way we have a template, sort of like a plug and play template that we can use to start off with. So in this section, that's what I'm gonna cover. Give you an introduction into themes how we can use those for our slideshow that let you walk away from this section with a better understanding of these themes and how you can really use them to best elevate your project. Now we have our media imported into my movie. It's time to actually start editing. So the way we do that is we wanna take whatever we want to edit and drag that down into the timeline below. So the timeline is simply this long rectangle on the lower half of the screen. So what you could do is high, select everything and then drag it down. So notice we've taken all seven of our pictures and move them down into the timeline. Now, here we have the ability to do a lot of cool stuff, and this is really where the creative aspect comes into it, right? So we could select it, rearrange the order of the clips we could trim them or make them shorter or longer. Right. So you could select the end of a clip here and drag it out as I'm dragging. Notice how The time above seven ounces 5 15 If I move it out 706 you know, for Or it could make it two seconds long. So we have a lot of freedom when it comes to rearranging the order or making it a clip longer. Shorter. So this is one way you could go go about this. But actually, for this course, I'm gonna show you a different, really cool way that I movie gives us when it comes to building specifically slide shows. So to get rid of all this, what you do is you just highlight it all and again. You know, it's highlighted because there's a yellow box around each picture. So highlight, just click delete on my laptop. So another way you go about this is on the right hand side. There's the settings button, click that and then 100 project settings. It gives us different options, but first you see here, says Theme. Right now there's currently no theme selected. If we click on that, it gives us all of these different options that we could use. So really, what a theme is is you could think of it as like a preset template, right? So it's I movie understands that creatives have different ideas and different projects that they want to work on. And so what a theme is, is it? It sort of creates a template that you could use to start your project. So for that one, we can see that's great for a news type of vibe. So you were doing some type of a new show or you wanted to convey that message. That would be a great template. So as you can see, there's a couple different options that I movie gives us to use That's already built for us . So for this whole course, we're gonna pretend that we're putting together a slide show of different trips that we've taken, and we want to put this together as we can share it with our family and friends. So for this, I think this photo album option would be a great choice. Once we've decided what option we want, we're gonna click on it and then notice when I click, there's a blue box that populates around it that indicates that's the one that you've selected. So we'll click on the photo album. It will go to the bottom right and click Change. Now if you take a look on the timeline, nothing noticeable happened, right? It almost appears like nothing occurred, But a good way to check that is you could go back to the settings and then theme notice how it Now it says photo album, whereas before it's that none. So the next thing we'll do is we'll go back to our media section here and again, like before. We're gonna take our information, highlight it, drag it down, OK, but now let's And then on the right hand side here to this bar, this allows you to zoom in her out on the timeline so you can get closer. Notice how this looks just a little bit different than it did before right. So before it was just the seven pictures. But now we see this purple bar on top in the beginning, and then also at the end, we also see these little boxes that are between each one of these pictures. In the next section, we're gonna cover what all this information means and how you can edit and use this to create the best slideshow possible. 4. Titles: The next idea we're gonna talk about is the use of titles. This is a very important concept in film and video editing. Up to this point in the course, you already seen a couple different titles. And whether you're watching this course or after you're done with this and you're watching another course here on skill share, the use of titles is a very common practice and it can really hope, emphasize and help you better communicate whatever you're trying t get crossed in this section, We're gonna dive deep into titles, show you how they relate to the themes and then how you can also edit and change them. So that way, ultimately being best that your creative vision the first thing we're gonna take a look at here is the purple rectangles that are at the getting and the end of our slideshow. So what the's are is titles? So if we double click the purple box, notice how in the top, right? In our view section, it now gives us the ability to edit that text. So for this example, sake will call it our family vacations. And then once you're done with that, what you could do is go to the top right click this blue check box, and that will apply it. So now if we start our project, notice how it looks like it's a photo book writer photo album. Notice his family vacations. So this is what these purple bars or boxes are. Is it simply text that is over laid on top of a project that you have? So we go to the end here again. It's text, but it's it's edited in a cool way, right are there. There's some type of design element behind it because in this altro here, worse is directed by It's not just plain text, but it has, you know, this colorful type of background behind it, and here in the beginning, family vacations sort of the way it looks. It looks like it's a most stitched on top of the actual photo album, right, so it it adds an extra creative touch to it, if you will. So for this instead of same directed by, let's change that. It's now we see it says, love the memories. Another thing to be aware of when it comes to titles is you're not just limited to whatever they give you here. So the reason why we have a purple box or title in the beginning in the end is this is the way that the theme that we chose right? So the photo album theme. This is the way that I movies set up this specific theme. So if we were to go in here and select a totally different one, the type of title and the placement could very well be different from the one we chose here . So just understanding that that the placement, this selection, these air only dependent upon the theme that we chose, which was photo album. But let's say you liked how this 1st 1 looks, but you don't like how the 2nd 1 looks. You're not limited to that. Uh, one thing you could do is just simply highlight it again. There's a yellow box around it to indicate its highlighted and then click, delete and turn off automatic. And then, if we see here, there's no longer that title I'm gonna do command or control sie to undo. Now let's say you wanted to add different titles throughout the project, and you didn't want it to be just at the beginning, and just at the end, something else we could do is go to the top here under the these different headers, select the titles, and then here it gives you a whole range of other types. Off titles that you could include in your project definitely won't be able to go through all these. But for examples sake, let's say you like the way this one looks. Name description. You would take that highlighted and just drag it down. And let's say you only wanted this to be there for this tree and this lake on the cabin. The way you ensure it's only there is you make sure that the box you drag it so it lines up directly above the tree through this here, right? So it's It's only there for seven seconds, and that's because it's just this time frame here, right? Then, if we want to edit it and say, Let's say, throughout our project, we wanted to add a title telling people where this location actually Waas. Let's say these two places were located Europe, so you wanted to add that again. As you can see, there is Aton of different options that you could use for titles. So you really do have a lot of creative freedom when it comes to add adding them and really setting this up. However you best wanted design, it will go ahead and elite thes here and then in the next section. What we're gonna do is we're gonna cover these little boxes that are between each one of the pictures and explain how you can use these to add a better effect to the overall slideshow. 5. Transitions: it comes to using transitions. I really like to think of this as the cherry on top of the project. So if you're not into film and video editing, recognizing transition is something that you're probably not gonna be too aware of or mindful of. But in this section, we're gonna sort of pull back the curtain and show you the basics of how transitions actually work. And then how you can best use this for your project already. So the next thing we're gonna take a look at here is these little squares that are between each one of the pictures and what these are called is transitions. And really, the best way to show you is actually just play this through so you can see what I'm talking about. So notice picture of mountains, and then it sort of fades out those the picture of a tree, and then it moves to a picture of this. Then it sort of fades out. Those picture a bird, then it picks up, goes there, then fades out. Transitions are simply the way one picture moves to another picture. So, for instance, we got this lake house here, and then as we slowly, I'm just gonna move frame by frame so you can really get the point here. And for me to move really slowly, frame by frame. What I'm doing is just clicking the right arrow on my keyboard, just 11 at a time. So, as you can see, what's happening is you know, if we watch it in real time, it's kind of hard to notice. But if we go frame by frame, you can really see how slowly what happens is the next picture. The picture. The birds starts to fade in, and then the picture of the house starts to fade out as this is all occurring. That's right above that little square there, right? So for really one second what's happening is it's transitioning. It's transitioning from the lake house to the bird, and this is a really subtle but cool way to makes a project they were working on. Look that much better in that much more professional. So that's one type of transition, right? But if we go to the next one here again, because the whole vibe of the project that we're going for is a photo album that we're showing off her family and friends, and with the theme that we chose notice how this transition instead of fading out, it's sort of zooming out, and then it looks like we're going to the next picture of the thing. Like titles. You have a lot of freedom and flexibility toe at thes, so we hover over top of them. Notice how it says one second and you can actually double click it, cross dissolve. That's the name of the transition and then the duration. So this transition is for one second Soto overexaggerate at. What we're gonna do is we're gonna changes to four seconds, and then you can either do apply, which reply it just this one, or apply to all which would do it all the transitions we'll do. Just apply now if we over oversee notice how that number says four seconds. And now let's play to see how that looks now, in real time, that's much more noticeable, right? But at the same time, it doesn't necessarily look as good with the transition, taking that long and going back to a previous section here. One thing to understand is the theme that we chose right. The photo album theme that preset and gave us these transitions in these titles by default . But just because you're given, say, a cross dissolve transition, that doesn't mean you have to use that. If you don't like the way that looks, what you could do is select it. Click delete, and then what you could do is go to the top here under the transitions header and then find a different one that you think looks better or better fits your project and then on top here. One thing that's cool is you can simply drag your cursor or top, and it will show you the effect of the transition. So that way you know what to expect. So let's say we like the slide right transition. Instead, highlight it, drag it down in the timeline, change it two seconds. Now let's see how that looks. So let's say we think that looks a lot better, right? Cause we like the effect where it feels like we're turning the page in the next section. We're gonna get into some more advanced tactics that you could use when it comes toe editing your slideshow. And this isn't stuff that a lot of people don't actually talk about so really excited to help share some of these secrets with you. 6. Ken Burns / Cropping: the next section we're talking about here is the ability to edit some of the pictures. So we're gonna go back to the getting here, and I want you to just take note of a couple things. This first picture is slowly zooming in. Next, picture it slowly zooming out. It's like houses slowly zooming in. Bird is slowly zooming out. This one is slowly zooming in, that one slowly zooming out. This is another really subtle way for you to make your slideshow look that much better. Because at the end of the day, right, what are we doing? We're showing off pictures of cool places that we've been right. But sometimes if you take a look at just a still picture that could be boring or somebody could lose interest. And so by using a lot of these different things we're talking about here like titles and transitions thes airways for you to still show off your work. But it keeps somebody interested in engaged in something that maybe not as captivating right, which is pictures. So what was going on with these rights, where if you take a look, this picture, it's zooming in? Like I said, this one zooming out. That's a really subtle way for you to add an extra element or effect. The way we do this is we're gonna highlight this. Go up top and I'm gonna click this cropping button. They're on the top left here, you'll see there's a couple different options that you could use so you could do the fifth option. You do crop to fill. Or you could do Ken Burns and this whole feature that we saw before right where it was zooming in and zooming out. That was something called the Ken Burns Effect, and we'll we'll end with that. I'll at least introduce you to the other ideas here so fit that simply fits the picture to the screen. So sometimes the dimensions may may not be the same crop. Let's say you only want to show a certain portion of the picture. You would drag us so you wanted to focus in on the person on the rock there and then similar to before top right, you click the Blue Arrow to accept your changes. So now, instead of showing the whole picture, it would show just this person if we play it, notice how, as it's going through, it's not going in or out. It's a static picture. But even taking a look side by side right static picture doing out, even though it's very small that zooming out effect does make the project that much more engaging. So we are going to change it back. The main thing will focus on Here is the Ken Burns effect. When I select this, you'll see there's two different boxes on the bottom left here, it says. There's a start box. Then there's an end box. So what you'll do is for the start box. You'll move the rectangle around the portion of the picture where he wanted to first start when this part starts playing. So let's say we wanted it to start, you know, im or on the bottom, right hand of the frame around the person. And then now that we click end, notice how this box is highlighted and we'll drag it up towards the top left. So let's say we want toe show some effects of we see the person, but then, towards the end of it, we're looking up towards the sky or the mountains. So then we'll click except now on to see how that looks. Practice sake will do this with one more picture. Let's say we wanted to. Let's say we wanted to start on the bottom of the tree and then move up towards the top. And for these examples, I'm trying to make them a little bit more exaggerated than I actually would for a project, Right? So for this example, I wouldn't necessarily think sorry at the trunk would look the best. But I'm or so doing it toe it'll straight and sort of overexaggerate if you will. So that way you can understand the concept here, so we'll start at the bottom here again. Notice where the box is highlighted. That's everything. What's going to start then? Slowly, as the clip progresses, it's gonna be moving up until it ends with only everything in that and box. So accept her change, and I will see how this looks. There is a lot of trial air when it comes to playing around with a lot of these different features and elements and figuring out what works best for you. 7. Audio : Now we have a good base level structure for how our timelines got. Look, we need to take it to the next level, and the way we're going to do that is by adding some type of an audio component, whether that be a voiceover or music. If you take a step back and think about great storytelling, let's say your favorite movie or TV show. There's different components that are all put together to tell a great story, right? There's the wardrobe that the characters are wearing. There's the back on scenery. There is the actual video, how the actual videos edited. But there's also the audio components, right? So let's say it's a dramatic movie, and there's in the climax part, which is really dramatic. Often times there's gonna be music that matches that moment, right? Add extra emphasis to it. So it's important to understand that there's a lot of different elements when it comes to effective storytelling and communicating and being able to add some of the audio component to. In this case, our slideshow can be very, very effective. So the next thing we're gonna do is add some music to our project to give it some more personality. So we go up to our media section here and I click the green box, Drag it down. So when I move the any type of audio that you have, it's gonna be represented by this screen box. Now for this project, I'm not gonna actually include this in the course description, and I'm not gonna play the actual music I'm or so dragging down the audio to just show you for editing purposes. How to include different audio if you like. So we take a look at the audio track that's down here in the timeline. Notice how, when it first starts, there's there's nothing. And then there's all these random, different spikes all throughout the rectangle. So what these are is this is just the audio file. These air just sound waves, right? So in beginning part, there's nothing. There's no sound being made. There's no music being played, and then the actual sound starts where these spikes start up. And then, if you take a look where some of these sections where its highest, that's where, say, the music, it's the loudest. Or maybe somebody would scream and there is a higher pitch in audio. A really easy way to edit. The volume is hover over this. Notice how there's those arrows sort of pointing up and down once you have that select and you could raise the volume 200. Right now we're at 178% of what it normally is. We could drag it down to 40% of what it is and then notice as I'm dragging the audio higher , lower. That was spikes that I was talking about. Those are also getting larger or smaller as well. So this may be something. If you're doing a slide show, you don't want the music to be overpowering and take away from a lot of the creative aspects he put into it. But sometimes adding background music or some audio element maybe, say a voiceover, Right? So let's say maybe you were putting the slide show together. You wanted email to friends and family who were all throughout the world, and you had different commentary that maybe you wanted to tell a funny story about after you visited this lake house in Europe. You know, this would be a great way for you to do that, where you record your voice talking and telling, you know, a 45 minutes story, and then what you could do is simply take this picture dragged out over 45 minutes. So that way they can see what that looks like that if you wanted to edit the audio more specifically, what you did was highlight it. Go up to the top and click this speaker icon for volume. Then here you can also change the volume of how loud you want to be. So it is the same concept as dragging it down here in the timeline, but its other way for you to do that. And then you could do something called Auto, which automatically adjusts the volume of it or similar options. But we'll click reset to return it to what it was before. So there's a basic overview off, including music or some type of audio component into your slideshow. I do have a whole different course on the fundamentals of my movie. We're actually going more in depth on that, So if that's something you want to see, feel free to check that out. The main thing I'm trying to do here is introducing toe these different elements that you can use in your slideshow project and recognize that you're not limited to putting just pictures together and showing those there's different things you can use, like adding audio, like a voiceover or music or something else, too, had a little bit more personality in your own personal flair to the project that you're working on. 8. Splitting Clips: The next section is pretty sure, but I want to make sure recover before we wrap up the course here. So as we go through, let's say we want to have consistency among our pictures and we want them to all be the same length. If we over over right now, we see in the top left. It tells us this is three seconds. This one's 2.5 seconds. This is two seconds. There's a couple ways that we could change this to make sure everything is all the same. So if you highlight it, go to the top right and click this little I for clip Information federation. It will give us how long the clip is right now, which is three seconds. So let's say we want all of our pictures toe only be 2.5 seconds. 215 enter, then notice Here on the timeline. It does that this one's 2.5, and then so we'll go ahead and just change all the rest of them real quick. So that way there's consistency among them. Okay, so they're now old 2.5. So that's one way for you to edit the length of your pictures. Another way you could do it is click on beginning or the end off the picture and then drag it to the left or to the right. They noticed for this picture here, as I'm dragging to the right, the time is increasing because it's becoming a longer picture or to the left, where it's becoming shorter. So that's another way you could do it. The last way you could do it is, let's say, right now this is, Ah, three second clip, and you wanted to cut out a portion of it. One thing you can do my movie is split clips. See, basically cut it in half or cut it wherever you want to. This is something that would be more relevant, I would say, when dealing with video clips versus pictures, but I think it's important toe at least be aware that this exists. So for this knows how the vertical line is about 2/3 of the way into this picture. I'm working on a Mac book right now, so I could do command be. That's the keyboard shortcut for splitting a clip here in my movie. That splitter picture into two different pictures. We now have the 12 seconds. We have the other one for one second, So this can be really helpful. If let's say you didn't want to show the full picture all at once, or if you wanted to sort of hop back and forth between the same picture multiple times. So, for instance, will split this clip. We can we can then select it and then drag it. So now if you take a look, it's that the lake house and then back to that again. Ultimately, it's up to you on. However you wanna head it in, rearrange the clips, whatever you think looks best and whatever you're trying to go for. But that is something that can be helpful. Right? Is the ability to split clips and rearrange them in the way that you think ultimately looks best. 9. Exporting: So now that we're nearing the end of our project here, one thing you could do is on the sort of bottom right hand side. Select this playful screen, but and that's a good way for you to watch your project all the way through before you decide toe, export the video and finalize everything. If you will so notice we click this and then to get out of it, you click the escape button on your keyboard. So but let's say we are done with this and we're ready to complete our project. What will have to do is we have to do something that's called exporting our project and really all what that is is if we take a look here on timeline, right? We have a lot of different elements, right? We have pictures, we have transitions. We have titles. We have music. So we have all these different things. And so what? Exporting a file is is it's taking all of this. All this information that we worked on and put really kind of compressing and combining, combining it all into one file, and that's a basic feature that's required for any type of video editing that we We do that as we go to the top right here, we'll click that button. Then there's different options for you. Toe export. You could export to YouTube for Facebook. Email. 99% of time. All select just file. So click file. You can name it. Whatever you like for this, I'm gonna call it family vacation slideshow. Then you could enter a description or different tags. This is more so meta data. If you're, say, trying to upload videos on YouTube or something like that. Sometimes putting more relevant information about the project you're working on can be helpful to YouTube. So that way you could try to rank higher for a certain videos. But that's not really what we're talking about here. Then you got resolution 10. 80 p. That's the highest. It gives the also some information here so that the entire project is 29 seconds, and that's the size of file there. So then we'll click next as we can see, share successful, and then it tells us that the export is complete. So click close. Then, if we take a look here on our desktop family vacation slideshow, click space fire and it plays all the way through 10. Final thoughts: and for the class project. I encourage you to create your own slideshow. That way we're getting the practice of the things that we just covered. So for this, you use your own personal pictures, or you could go to unspool ash and download any pictures that you like there. And then once it's all complete, you know, I encourage you to put your unique spin and twist on it. Don't do exactly what I did in the course, but put your own unique twist and flair on it because at the end of the day, that's this one. A creative project is right. It's put its taking your personality and your vision into whatever it is that you're creating. Then once we're all done, I encourage you to upload that to the course. So that way you can share with myself in other students. And that way everybody can see the great slide show that you made. Do you think about it? That's a key component to developing any tip of a skill right? Getting the practice but also having that sense of community and having other people that concerto work with share tips and tricks and also get advice from others as well. I'm very excited to see what you're able to create. And if you have any additional questions or clarifications, feel free to leave them in the discussion section below. I would be happy to answer anything. But with that being said, I'm very happy you decided to take this course. I wish you the best of luck and take care.
