Lesson Info

Creating Timelapses: Animation

Go here I'm gonna start with this time lapse, people are enjoying it and I'm gonna go ahead and I'm going to lock in position and scale. And then I'll go down here and I can now change this to 100%, I'll just type in 100%, and what I'm gonna do is pick the part of the image that I wanna zoom into. I'm gonna double click on it, and maybe I wanna zoom into, I'll look around, let's go into this little house over here, okay. It has created the keyframes. Let's go back to the first keyframe, hit static, start to move, I just am doing now a camera push with a time lapse using all the skills that we've already learned and it looks really, really cool. I'm gonna do the same thing now, I'm gonna go ahead and hit Undo. Instead of doing a push, I'm gonna go ahead and take the same image, I'm gonna start it, I'm gonna hit my little clocks here, okay. Hit my stopwatch, okay. Now I'm gonna start it at 100%, one, o, o, boom. Position it. Down here I wanna make sure I see the house but really the clou...

ds are the exciting thing. Start right there. Position my play head where I want the action to start, that's what we tend to forget to do, we tend to forget that it's position, time, keyframe. That's your mantra, position, time, keyframe. Position, position, position, okay. Position, and then I lock that, this is the position where I'm on the shot, my timing, where I am on the timeline, now I say make a keyframe, position and scale. Then I move it to a new position in my timeline. I'm sorry, the new place in my timeline. Timeline's always the important thing. Slide that over, all the way to the end. We did this with the panorama, when we were working with the stills and now it automatically creates the keyframes. I could push, I don't wanna do that. I could pop in an extra one that I don't really need but I do it by habit, and now I hit Play and there we have a nice pan along with our clouds moving. So that is the magic of really working with individual images creating these really cool time lapses and you know, I could make 'em on time lapses all day. I will throw it open to the class if you have any questions on what we did or how you should do things and go for it. Can you recommend smooth ways to either repeat it or you know go backwards? Okay so, let's say I have a time lapse but I wanna repeat it. I wanna create some sort of like a wallpaper I wanted to. So here's the trick to make something repeat. I love questions because I would never have explained this yet I know how to do it. So I wanna make what's called a looping video. So the trick is, with any video that you wanna make a looping video, you find a good spot in the middle and you cut it in half. So I go command K, the cut tool, and now what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna swap these two clips. I'm gonna put this at the very beginning. So I could go, bring this over, bring this back, I'm gonna teach you a new technique. I wanna just swap these two clips and this works with anything. So if I drag it and let go, it would just overwrite. That's not what we wanna do. But if I hold down a modifier key, let me do that zoomed in so you can see what I'm doing, so I'm pulling to left and I wanna kind of point out that there's a little pop up down in the lower left hand corner when you start doing things. It's a, oh if you hold down the option key, you'll do this. If you hold down the command key, the control key, you'll do this. Obviously I'm not, see. So I drag this over and it says, oh, an overwrite I just drop it. If I wanna do it as an insert, hit the, and this is Mac specific because this is a Mac, use the command key, and then if I wanna duplicate our shift, there's all these different options. So if I use the command key, let's see if I have enough fingers to zoom out, okay. So bring it over, command, it actually did a swap edit, insert it and then put that to the end. So now, if I play this, you're gonna see a huge jump, of course, boom and we learned that there is no extra media here because I just used it all. So you know, I don't care. This is the end of clip one, this is the beginning of clip one. They're different already. I'm gonna go ahead and ripple trim that so I have space, ripple trim this so I have space, and I'm just doing an arbitrary amount, and now I'm gonna go ahead and put a dissolve, which is my default transition I hope still, in between here, maybe even stretch it out and this is great with clouds, and what's gonna happen when I play it, is you'll see a dissolve and now I can either put it in a situation where it automatically loops or if I really wanna put this maybe as a background, select it, copy, move my play head, paste, and you can paste as many as you want, but because of the way I built it, you would think there would be, this is really where the world changes. This is the original connection of the clips. There's no change there because this was really the whole clip that I cut in half. So now what it's doing as it gets to the end, it's dissolving, it's dissolving, and I can go ahead and I can have this as a looping background as long as I need and that's the trick that I think is really cool that we wouldn't have had had you not asked that question.

I've never even tried video editing before this class. I opened the program once and panicked. After only 9 lessons I was able to throw a short video together (basic of course, but still pretty cool). I wish all of my teachers growing up were just like Abba. He goes over everything without dragging anything on for too long. He repeats things just enough for me to actually remember them, and he is funny. He keeps it fun and shows that even he makes mistakes. I can't even believe how much I have learned in less than a quarter of his class. I have a long way to go and am very excited to learn more. This class is worth every penny and more! I was hesitant on buying the class because I have CS6 and he works with CC, but I have already used what I've learned in his course to create a video. The first 9 lessons were already worth what I paid for the entire course. Thank you, Abba! You are an awesome teacher! You have me absolutely obsessed with creating right now! I highly recommend! You won't find this thorough of a course for this decent price!

Just bought this yesterday and cannot stop watching!!!! What a FANTASTIC teacher-- just love the way he explains everything. For someone like me (who has a zillion questions) it is perfect. As soon as he introduces a feature, he explains several aspects in such a way that's easy to grasp and remember. So, so happy I got this. Thank you Abba and CreativeLive!

I am only on lesson 19 and I am so glad I bought this class, so worth it and Abba packs so much information into these lessons its crazy. I will for sure have to come back and watch again when I need to remember to do stuff or need a refresher. He is funny and quirky and a great teacher. I so recommend this to anyone wanting to become a better video editor!! I am coming from being self taught and using iMovie and he makes it so simple and understandable. Can't wait to learn more :)
