Now, we're going to look at animating video clips over time moving them from one location to another. I'm going to use the finished product from the previous video, which gave us this great picture in picture, and I really want to start full screen and half it drop back into this position. So, one way of doing this is to build the final landing spot position and look and then bring it back to neutral. So, I've created a marker here at the point where I want the picture in picture to be in its final position.
I can move my play head over by hitting the keyboard shortcut or if I just jump over to Markers, I can click on that and it will position this in the perfect location. I am going to now load the multiple transitions into my Source Monitor. I'm just going to click it once, and I see I have all of my final positions but I have to lock them in with keyframes. So, we're just going to go down the list and we're going to lock in the keyframe on position and scale and, and on the filters that we used at their final numerical value.
So, it' s really, we just cropped on the right side that's the only place we need to worry about. And then, we did a lot with roughing edges, so I want to make sure that we keyframe the border size, the edge sharpness, the fractal influence and scale. Finally, we'll go down to drop shadow. We don't have to worry about the color. We could look at opacity. Don't worry about direction, because we're going to keyframe distance. And don't worry about softness.
We know when it lands at this point it's going to be locked in exactly as we expected. Now comes the fun part, we simply move the play head back to where we want to be at full screen. For the convenience of this video, I'm going to move it just all the way to the very head of the clip, and as we see, there's our play head. Now, I need to just change the numerical values back to their original locations. So, in the case of position, I know that to be dead-center. It's 640, and because it's 720 wide, dead center there would be 360 which is half of 720.
Bring scale back to 100. And now, we need to start removing the crop. So, we'll slide down here, we'll simply take that crop back to zero, and continue on down and now modify our roughen edges. We're going to take the border down to zero. Edge sharpness down to zero. Fractal influence down to 0, that means it will go from a straight side to that, kind of, cut up side and our scale we'll bring to 0 also. And the last step we need to work on is the opacity of the drop shadow, that can come to 0 and the distance can also drop back to 0. At this point, we're actually done, and we're ready to watch the effect in real time.
>> You're going to add the tapioca flour, the cheese, the egg, the oil, and the water. >> That worked perfectly. I really liked the way it developed. If you want to tweak it at some point. Maybe you want to see the edges a little bit earlier. You can go back and play with the sliders. But that's a great way to start from a full screen image. And have a stylized picture in picture.
