There's nothing like adding a little motion tracking to your video. Please enjoy our Motion Tracking tutorial.

Hi Maliek

I have watched your tutorials for a few years now. I really like them.

Since superheros are popular now how about a tutorial on how to make Wonder woman or superman pick up and throw a car or bus or stop a train. I can do the jump off a building and land on the street or green screen flying flying effect from watching your tutorials. Give me more.

thanks,

Let's have a bit of fun in the Action Camera Center. It can make some really cool effects.

Would Professor Maliek care to comment on the income he's generating from his University. Does he award accredited degrees. Does he still host the pseudo-academic Channel for Cyberlink competitors' businesses and does anyone accredit or critically appraise his expertise. I find the number of jump-cuts in his productions absolutely dreadful, and if this is an example of what serious users should expect from using Cyberlink products, then I think they might be better-advised to seek more grown-up software.

Is advertising your channel allowed on here, now ?

Hello Prof. Maliek!

Just watched one of your YT vids. It gives me an idea or two I might try out in the future, but the clip I produce first needs to be appropriate for the effect to have any meaning within it. Effects(any effects) shouldn't be added to a video just for the sake of adding effects. You need a reason to apply the effect you're going to use. For example, I make use of the "Video In Reverse" effect quite often in some of my videos(not all). A typical use might be a clip of one of my young nephews or nieces jumping or diving into a pool. I pick a point in the video just before the jump or dive, preferably at a point of an exact number of seconds(like, say, 1 minute 25 seconds, splitting at that point, then counting off 25 frames[at 25FPS] to the next full second, 1 minute, 26 seconds splitting at that point, then copy that one second into clipboard and paste it in(3, 5 or 7 times, never more than 7 though, let's not bore the viewer!) The reason for the odd number of times pasting in is that the forward motion at the start and end must mesh in with the action before and after the effect is applied. So, the resultant effect is, the child dives/jumps in-out-in-out-in... you can imagine how it looks on a screen. The reverse effect works well to bring a laugh to the viewer but is not always appropriate in every situation. I mean it lends itself well to some situations but not all.

Cheers for now!

Neil.

Agreed Neil. Effects should only be used when they add value to the scene. Also, you must pay attention to the most minute of details in order to guarantee that the effect looks realistic.
