Evaluation questionWhat have you learnt abouttechnologies from the process ofconstructing this product?
Final CutI had never used final cut express before, and wasvery new to using a Mac, it therefore took me awhile to just get used to the basics, I quicklylearnt techniques on how to get around and usefinal cut. I learnt how to upload footage and thenhow to place it into a timeline, also how to cut andsnip footage which was really useful when tryingto create jumpy effects for my horror opening. Ialso learnt how to edit the colours which againhelped when trying to create horror scenes.
LivetypeAgain I had never used this before, but quicklymanaged to find my way around the programme.I learnt how to important fonts I found on theinternet to the programme which at first soundedit hard but was actually very easy. I also learnthow to change the sizes of individual letters andalso there location which helped a lot whencreating the titles to the opening as it enabled meto make them look typical of a horror film. I alsolearned how to reopen the lettering into final cutso I could include them into my opening.
YoutubeBefore this course I had never had a youtubeaccount before, I found this fairly easy to set up,however when uploading my final film opening itseemed rather challenging at first as I had toconvert it into an appropriate file type for it to beuploaded to YouTube, however I knew withpractise that this would become easier. I learntthat using youtube became a very easy and clearway of me and others to view my work.
