Coming in 2018

My finish project is meant to reflect how a tv channel prepares for the upcoming months or the year its self. Combining snippets of the previous intros that I made using Adobe Premiere Pro, I will go step by step how I manage that as well as recap the many uses After effects has for your video.

In premiere pro when comprising your video sometimes you need to cut it speed it up or even add sound to add a touch to it.

1.To cut/trim clips or soundtrack on premiere pro, > lock any track containing a clip that you don’t want to split. > Press Ctrl+Shift+K (Windows), . > or look for the Razor tool icon to split all tracks at the same point in a Timeline panel.

2. In the timeline panel, select one or more clips Click (Windows) select a non-contiguous group of clips in the panel. >Choose Clip right-click over a selected clip and choose Speed/Duration. > Click OK.

To fade in a clip’s audio, Drag an audio transition from the effects panel to a timeline panel so that it snaps to the In point of the audio clip.

To fade out a clip’s audio, Drag an audio transition from the effects panel to a timeline panel so that it snaps to the Out point of the audio clip.

To fade out a clip it self, go to effects tab > find the opacity in setting > and click the keyframe from the beginning of the clip> change how  ever you want.

My thesis

Art is made so the viewer can think and feel something so they can develop their own sense meaning of what they are looking at. The idea of making a unique title sequence is designed to capture the interest of the viewer like most tv shows and movies do it will also make you think about what the general feel of the film is going to be. Using the many online tutorials and examples present online I will create several of my own title sequences that will set a tone for each clip to stand out.

My job was to create a environment that adds to a cinematic world that was meant to be explored by the viewers. By using a mix of a machine the main focus and the surroundings allowed me to make a story. My animated entity was made by a series of riggs and placed in the environment.

This project was long and hard but I managed to complete it even though their is still room for improvement I am still proud to say that this is my first animation.

This was more then a weeks time of work all images was found on google edited on photoshop for bump mapping the ocean was from maya material file and the riggs was all mine.
