7 Motion Type: Editing and Finalising

Editing took longer than I had imagined. Mostly because I had to edit my sound to fit my films, despite filming with the music. The audio was very long, and the parts that I needed to use extended for longer than I needed. The problem was, there was no way I could cut and edit inside Premier and had to export into Adobe Audition whenever I wanted to make the slightest change.

Apparently, there is a simple way to edit sound directly inside premier, through keyframes and the waveform is visible when you expand the bar downwards. I should know this from Time Studio in freshman year. But I forgot…

 Fiddling with the exposure and white balances helped me hide the frame edges if I needed to, instead of masking it out. Had to find a balance between the frame being visible or the overall image being too dark.

It was nice to see that I could do so much in Post-production. I was able to layer films over each other ‘tears’ and ‘confusion’ by using blending modes and opacity, almost like photoshop. I could change the scale if I needed to, if a film was too yellow, I could change the tinge. Computers are magic. Tape, and computers.

^ Last minute experimentation. I thought it would be interesting if I introduced colour shifts, where the frame is tinged from yellow, to red, then to bright white (in the tense parts), then back to red. It didn’t look interesting, looked pretty gross actually. especially the yellow.
