Hi there,

I'm thinking of putting jpg images on some rolling credits, such as Cyberlink & PD12 logos. Is it easy to do? I thought about "toying" with key frames, but can't get my head around the process. Had same trouble with my previous editor, and their tech department created them for me. Everything is so much easier with PD12 than my old editor, EXCEPT key frames.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks IanB

Keyframes are simply points on the timeline, where the effect action takes place. The closer the space between two keyframes, the quicker the action.

Take a look at PD's HELP ? file; type "keyframes" into the INDEX tab box.

Search the Net for "PowerDirector keyframes." There are numerous videos and tutorials. Here's but one. It's for PD9, but the concepts apply to other versions...

Thanks Borgus1,

Not sure if that will help. See attached image for the vid I used with my previous editor. That is what I want to do with Cyberlink & PD12 logos and the Free Play Music logo.

Any one else can "chip in" with any suggestions.


Thanks

Hi Ian -

The easiest way to do that would be with a series of short scrolling titles & accompanying images - that makes it easier to sync the timing of motion between the two.

You'll see what I mean if you open the attached project (zipped).

Once you have one title formatted, copy & paste it to modify. Once you have one logo set to scroll, copy & paste keyframes onto the rest.

Just because they're related, here are a few little tutorials that offer different possibilities:

Transitioning text with images - http://youtu.be/BHhqPOKgZic
Pre-Producing for scrolling text with images - http://youtu.be/EvrzKs7kN08

Cheers = Tony
