    Default Using Picture in Picture for Scrolling Video (Mediastudio)

    A number of people have asked for a more detailed explanation of the scrolling video in the opening titles post at

    http://www.videoeditingforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=328

    The following is a basic guide to scrolling Picture in Picture using Media Studio Pro.

    Step 1:
    Place Background video on track Va.
    Also, I want the scrolling video to stand out againts this.
    So I place a 'Monochrome' Video Filter on the clip

    Step 2:
    Create a Moving Path for the scrolling Video (Picture in Picture)
    I set the size of the video (PIP) to 200 x 160 pixels for all key frames in the clip
    In the same moving path I set the first key frame to 170 x 700. This ensures that any applied video clip starts its move off-screen (at the bottom)
    I set the end of moving path key frame to 170 x -100. This ensures that the video finishes off-screen (at the top)
    The net effect is a video scrolling off screen from bottom to top.

    Step 3:
    Place first video clip on V1 (Video Overlay Track)
    I clip the video to exactly 5 seconds
    I then apply the moving path (Step 2) to this Clip

    Step 4:
    Place second video clip on V2 (Video Overlay Track)
    Ensure that this clip is offset by the clip on V1 by exactly 1 second
    I then apply the moving path (Step 2) to this clip

    Step 5:
    Place third video clip on V3 (Video Overlay Track)
    Ensure that this clip is offset by the clip on V2 by exactly 1 second
    I then apply the moving path (Step 2) to this clip

    Step 6:
    Place fourth video clip on V4 (Video Overlay Track)
    Ensure that this clip is offset by the clip on V3 by exactly 1 second
    I then apply the moving path (Step 2) to this clip

    Step 7:
    Place fifth video clip on V5 (Video Overlay Track)
    Ensure that this clip is offset by the clip on V4 by exactly 1 second
    I then apply the moving path (Step 2) to this clip

    Step 8:
    Place sixth video clip on V1 (Video Overlay Track)
    Ensure that this clip is offset by the clip on V5 by exactly 1 second
    I then apply the moving path (Step 2) to this clip
    By this stage the clip simply slots on to the end of the clip in step3

    Step 9:
    Repeat this process until you have as much scrolling video as you need

    Finally press play and enjoy

    Unfortunately I am not a Premiere User, but I think the screen shot will provide the general idea. I do know that this can be replicated in Premiere.



    Hopefully one of our Premiere contributors will be able to add the Premiere speak to this guide.

    Enjoy

    Default How to do the same but using beta version

    Hi all

    I am a newbie here anf I have download the beta version of multimedia studio 8.

    Anyone here tell me how to do the effect of picture in picture as shown in this tutorial

    http://www.videoforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=662

    as it seems the filters have either been removed or rename to something different.

    As i said i am a complete noob so thought that by downloading the latest update it should be easier as the filters etc should now be a standard but it seems this is not the case

    TIA

    In the guide above substitute Video1 for v1, Video 2 for V2 etc, and the tutorial works exactly the same.

    To get the monochrome filter, right click the clip on Video1 and select Video Filters. Scroll down the Available Filters list until you find Monochrome and click Add, then click OK and enjoy.

    Your screen should look something like this,



    Incidentally this is my first posted assistance on Mediastudio 8!
