Project Description: 1. Open up a new project in Adobe Premiere Elements 10. a. Open Adobe (New Project), Name your Project (Video After(Before) Peer Review), Make sure you check the Project settings, Click OK. 2. Import your Video into Adobe a. This can be done several ways, for me I have to plug the camera in using USB b. On the camera, chose USB connect. c. From the main menu, chose File Get Media from AVCHD camera (my camera), this will open the Video Importer. d. In the Video Importer screen you will see the files that are available on the camera. Chose the file you want and where you want to save the file and Click on Get Media. e. From here you can drag and drop your video into the Task Panel from where you saved the file. It will show up in the Project panel. If you have multiple videos that you are using, just repeat steps C E. This could also be done from the Project Panel. 3. Once the video is in Adobe you are ready to create your project. Here are my specific steps for my video. I had multiple clips in the Project Panel that I was using. a. Create Title Screen; I used a part of a video clip to get a Freeze Frame for the title. i. Place the video clip where you want to get the Freeze Frame from into the Timeline, Video 1 track. ii. Using the Zoom, enlarge the displayed clip. iii. Using the Monitor panel, play the clip and pause it where you want to freeze the frame. iv. Click on the camera in the Monitor panel, this will bring up the Freeze Frame window with the frame (picture) in it. v. Set how long you want the frame to freeze (3 seconds), then click on Insert in Movie at the bottom of the window, this will create a still picture in the Timeline. 1

From the Task panel, chose Edit Titles Drag the title you want into the Monitor panel. This will also place it into the Video Track 2, and open up the Text editor. It must be placed into a track higher than the Freeze Frame or it wont be seen. viii. Using the Text editor, create your title (Morgan, Dixon High School 2012 Graduation). The Title screen should now be layered on top of the Freeze Frame at the beginning of the video. Creating the main video; I wanted to highlight the Graduation project in segments that I thought where important. i. Place the desired clips into the Timeline by dragging and dropping them into Video Track 1. ii. Again use the Zoom to enlarge the displayed clips. iii. Use the Trim tool to trim the unwanted clips. I had five video clips when I was finished trimming them. Insert an Image i. Open up where the Image is saved, drag and drop the image into the Task panel. ii. Where you want to insert the Image, drag and drop it into the Timeline, Video Track 1. iii. You can adjust the length that the image is shown by using the Trim-In or Trim-out tool (3 seconds). Create Credit Screen i. Place the current-time indicator where you want the Credit screen. ii. From the Main menu choose Title New Title Default Roll. This will put the Credit Screen into Video Track 2 and open up the Text editor. iii. Enter the credits you want and edit the text if necessary. iv. From the Project panel drag and drop your Credit screen into the Timeline, Video Track 1 at the end. v. Adjust the properties of the Roll by double clicking the screen in the timeline. This will open it in the Monitor panel vi. Choose Title Roll/Craw options this will allow you to change the options you want for the Credit screen. Insert Audio Track i. Open up where the Audio is saved, drag and drop the Audio into the Task panel. ii. Where you want to insert the Audio, drag and drop it into the Timeline, Soundtrack Track. iii. Edit the track; using Trim tool cut any unwanted audio, move the Audio clip to desired location. I cut the track so that we could hear the original audio clip during the middle of the video and faded it in during clip 4. iv. Right click on the Audio track; choose Fade Fade Out Audio (Fade In Audio). This will give you the ability to fade the music. This was done at the ends of both tracks, As well as fading in the second part of the track. Insert Transitions 2

Choose your transitions and drag and drop them into the Timeline, Video Track 1, between the clips. According to the requirements here are the ones I used (I took the first requirement to be between the video clips and not after the title screen). 1. Cube Spin between title and start of video 2. Cut transition between 1st and 2nd clip 3. Cross Dissolve between 2nd and 3rd clip 4. Swing In between 3rd and 4th clip 5. Flip Over between 4th and 5th clip g. Edit Audio; The audio in the original video needs to be adjusted. i. Right click on the Video in the Timeline, choose Fade Fade In (Out) Audio This will allow you to fade the audio where you want. I faded the audio at the beginning of the video, after the title screen. ii. Place your cursor over the audio line, click and hold, then drag the audio to the desired volume (-6.30db). 4. Saving the file a. In the Task panel chose Share Mobile Phones and Players. b. Choose Apple iPod, iPad and iPhone. c. Name your file and change any of the preset settings if needed. d. Chose Save. Peer Evaluation Feedback: When I started this project I thought that it would be easy. I have done video editing before and made numerous projects. The process of Peer evaluation is great. You can always use another set of eyes. The classmates that commented on my project stated basically the same thing: It will be better if you adjust the audio part and credits part I would add that your title screen is a little too fast Also the scream at the beginning of the video was a little too loud There was also a spelling error in the credit screen that was pointed out. Overall they all liked the concept of the video. They wanted me to adjust the volume of the original audio and also slow down the scroll on the end credits and show the title screen longer. On a side note one of the comments was to get rid of the Trail message that ran across the entire video. When I started this I used the trail version. To complete the final project I purchased Adobe Premiere Elements 10, this got rid of the message.

Million November 10, 2013 Your Response and Adjustments Made, if any: While taking this class I have I have been open to any suggestions and have usually made the changes suggested by my classmates. This project was no different. I adjusted the volume in the original audio to fade at the end of the first video clip. By doing so this made it more enjoyable to listen too. I also lowered the entire audio down to -6.30db, a better fit for the video. The credits where slowed down so that they could all be read and the misspelled word was fixed. The title screen was adjusted so it stayed on the screen longer, 3 seconds. This was all a little hard, while trying to get everything in the video in the allotted time.
