Thread: Multiple media events question in Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13

  1. Default Multiple media events question in Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13

    I'm editing a short video and want to display multiple small photos on the video within the same timeframe, e.g. 9 photos in a 3 x 3 grid.

    I don't want to have 9 separate video tracks, each with 1 photo (panned/cropped/resized), nor do I particularly want to use an external image editor to create the finished product.

    Surely there must be an easier way to do this ?

    Ideas please.

    Thanks in advance,

    MR.

    Whyever not? That's the way it's done.
    You have nine video streams (or in this case images treated as video streams). Each requires a track (or a layer if you are using After Effects or similar compositing tool.
    It's not too difficult to set up, but your computer might baulk a bit. Compositing in a photo editor would be my preferred choce here as it gives you flexibikit layer.

    That's the way to "git er done" as we say over here - no two ways about it - and all those tracks are free!

    In 1974 when I got my first 8mm film camera, I made my own splicing table - with wood and glass - and I used the grooved tracks from a broken "easy show" movie projector to hold the film segments in place for splicing - try to tell that to the kids these days

    Even iMovie for iOS (i.e. your iphone) has this capability - you might want to try it first before spending the money - unless you are a contrarian sort who whinges about little deficiencies like "how it looks" and what not, then just spend the money

    (Edit) just to confirm - iMovie isn't for girly men - if you're a girly man then you should stick to editors that support frame-level and even sub-frame editing - if you eat nails for breakfast and rub coal in your hair for lunch, such as myself, then the "general vicinity" editing style supported by iMovie will be fine for you
