Thread: Blind Date type effect.

  1. #1

    Default Blind Date type effect.

    I wasnt sure what to search for so sorry if its been posted.

    I was wondering how to do simple effects like they do on the tv show blind date where they have a small cartoon type picture over layed on video where it can smoothly move about the screen. I have tried this before but ended up hand moving the image frame by frame which causes it to be very jerky. If anyone could help i would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply

    I probably did it the hardest way possible before, i first converted the videos to gif, then edited each frame in adobe imageready. then converted all the gifs back to avi, then stictched them together in i think windows movie maker. i can use whateer program is easiest though, my company is willing to pay for quality.

    You're right, thats the hard way!

    You need a Non Linear Editing (NLE) package that supports multiple video layers. If your company is paying then go with Adobe Premiere Pro.

    Good Luck
