Tutorial : color changes
When you buy shinyDV motion graphics you are actually getting
more clips than you originally purchased. You can use iMovie
filters to change your clips and export the clip for use
in your current project or to save for future use. Just think
of the motion graphics as building blocks and the possibilities
are endless. One of the easiest ways
to change the appearance of the clips is to apply iMovie's
Change Color filter. Check out the tutorial
for an example of how to brighten up the Mellow
Open your iMovie project and
import your shinyDV background
that you want to loop. For our example we chose
After importing drag the clip to the timeline.
With your clip selected in
the timeline (it should be blue, if not go ahead and
click on the clip in the timeline....now) change to
the Effects Pane by clicking the effects button.
With the Effects Pane open select the Adjust Colors
effect at the top of the list.
When the Adjust Color sliders
appear, go ahead and slide things around until you
find something you like.
The hue shift slider will change the colors of your
clip. The improperly- named color slider adjusts the
saturation of the clip which changes it from
black and white on one end to ultra vivid on the other.
The lightness slider tends to wash everything out at
the right side and makes the clip more shadowy towards
the left side.
In our example, we wanted something lighter so we
could place a black text title over it. The final effect
adjustments are shown on the right.
After you are done adjusting you can change your clip
even more by adding other effects (see the motion
graphics tutorial) or leave it as is and place your
titles on top of it. If you like what you have done,
you can also export the clip and save it for future
use in another project.
