Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Incorporating still images, part of Creating a Mini Documentary with Premiere Elements.
A common technique in documentary is working with still photos and adding a…little bit of animated motion to make them dynamic and interesting.…I want to show you how to do this technique, but I am starting in a blank…project, so we can really just focus on this with no distractions.…Now, I have to add my photo from the Exercise Files.…There it is, Vase.jpg. And the situation here--and it happens from time to time--…is we have a photo that's taller than it is wide, and that doesn't work very well…in the widescreen format.…
The solution is going to be to animate, so that we start with the framing at the…bottom and we tilt up to the top.…Let's add it to our timeline. And I want to select it and go to our Pan and…Zoom tool.…As you can see, this is like a mini application, made especially to make these…types of animations.…I am going to start by clearing the premade frames, because they don't really do…what I want and I want to start from scratch.…Now, I am going to add New Frame at the beginning.…
