InstantMovie and themes

Video: InstantMovie and themes

Adobe Premiere Elements 10 has a useful feature called the Instant Movie mode, and what is that? Well, that's exactly what it does. It makes an instant movie from clips that you select. So let's take a look at how we do that. So I have got some footage down here in folders, called broll_dance_rehersal, and I showed you how to make that in another movie on Auto Analyzer. So I am going to take a look. We are going to go into the Icon view. And I am going to get some real estate here, because I really need to see this. This is important right here. And I am going to make these bigger, and now I have all my clips. And I am just going to click on one that's going to deselect them all.

So I am going to take a look. We are going to go into the Icon view. And I am going to get some real estate here, because I really need to see this. This is important right here. And I am going to make these bigger, and now I have all my clips. And I am just going to click on one that's going to deselect them all.

So I am going to click on this one first, because I like that, and we will look around. I am going to hold my Command key down on the Mac, Ctrl key down on the PC, and I will choose this one, and we will keep going. I like this one of the boy dancing. This one looks interesting, maybe a little bit of a close-up there, some of this night movie stuff, and we will end with that. So once I am done with that, I just have to go Create Instant Movie, and it's going to ask me once again, what style do I want? So, if I had downloaded that extra content that I showed you, you would see it all here.

So we are going to choose this one and click Next, and I am going to call this Dancing is fun! And DirectedByMe, yes. And you know what? I am going to leave the rest of the stuff in there. I am going to do an instant Auto Movie, Auto Edit and Auto Analyze the clip applied to the entire movie. Theme Music, I can choose the theme music that it has or no music at all. I can have sound effects. Here we are with that Smart Mix again, so if we have any interviews there, which I don't, I can click on that.

It would look for those types of things. My Speed or Intensity, do you want a lot of effects, slower cuts, faster cuts? I am going to leave everything default on that. My duration, my sequence, what content I have, do I want to include it all, and do I want to have to pre-render it? So let's just Apply, and it's saying that I only have a clips totaling 2 minutes and 48 seconds, and I want to create an instant movie without repeating clips. I am fine; I want to repeat clips, because I want to show the essence of this dancing.

So let's just keep on going. I am going to click No, and it's applying my movie, and it's telling me now that I have an InstantMovie. Do I want to render it for smoother playback? I think I do because there are a lot of effects, so I am going to click Yes, and we will just let it render really briefly. Okay, so we are done. And let me just scroll back up, but before I do, you can see that it made another folder called Fun and Instant movie, so let's scroll back up, and there it is in my Timeline.

Let's see what it created. Actually let's give ourselves a little more real estate here, so we can see the viewer. It also added some markers here as you see, so let's press play. (video playing) Okay, so you can see that it made a nice, cool, little movie that's ready to go and get it up on the web, make a DVD, or any way you want to share it.

So the InstantMovie tool is a pretty useful little feature in Elements 10.
