Tip & How-To about Event Planning & Celebration
Most computers today come with a video editing software that at least has basic functions that one would need to create many different kinds of visual effects. All you need for the two most common visual effects are a computer with a movie maker and a digital camera that shoots video. The most commonly used visual effects are stop-motion and Jump cut editing.
To create stop-motion of say your pen opening itself you would take a series of photos with a slight change in position in every shot. Then at the end you take all the shots and play them together at about .5-1 second per image and it will look like the object is moving on its own. This is particularly useful for when you want to make a person look like they are jumping into an object or flying.
Jump cut, is the most commonly used technique for visual effects. What you do is film the person or object that you want to disappear, then stop filming remove them from the camera's view and the continue filming. When the two shots are played together as one then it appears that the person or object disappears. You can use this technique to make someone appear and disappear anywhere in your shots.
