Havn't received my copy of Movie+4 yet (but only ordered yesterday, so can't moan to much) - but can someone advise if I can do the following.
Cut a bit of a clip out, manipulate it, and then paste it back in behind the original (and pushing everything else back.
Example of what I mean - local football game - player scores, so I want to the copy the goal, play it in slow motion, and then continue where I left of.
I have played with a friends copy of Adobe Premier, and could not work out how to do it. Thought it would be simple - but oh no. I would be extremly surprised if I could not do it - but would like to be re-assured on this lovely saturday night.
Yes you can. But you don't have to cut the section out and paste it back in. You can set a keyframe where you want to start, set the play speed, set a final keyframe where you want the speed to go back to normal.
Lee, when I said it was not possible, I was referring to Steve's suggestion to use keyframes to dynamically change the playback speed over the course of a clip (i.e. gradually speeding up/slowing down). This is not (yet) supported in MoviePlus.
However, slow motion definitely is supported; see my reply below.
Hope this helps,
ah - thank goodness for that! OK, looks like I'm not going down the Post Office with the software in hand after all!
Without having yet received the s/w (and being generally ignorant of video editing at present) - keyframes/velocity envelopes mean nothing to me (yet...).
Out of interest, is there any place within this website (or elsewhere) where examples of Serif Movieplus clips have been produced, so that us with 'limited imagination' can see Serif putting the s/w through its paces, and tben displaying the results. This would also be a advertising scheme.....
