I used to make a ton of videos when I posted ongoing threads in a local forum. I used Windows Movie Maker. It worked ok, well good for me not knowing I could buy something better at a decent price.

I bought the PowerDirector 16 version and it's pretty darn cool! If I remember correctly, I paid about $60 for it last year. Just haven't used it much.

Using some special effects to create titles is looking pretty sweet. Figuring out how to use them takes some time when one, like me was used to a simple program like WMM.

Today I was fiddling with PowerDirector and discovered some sweet stuff. Titles, fades, text effect etc. Looking forward to making a few vids just to try it out. :D

One of my latest videos. Not too exciting this one but the opening title is really cool I think. Dude rolling by on a bicycle. I didn't know half this stuff was in the program.

I came barely use the GoPro free editing program. I'm not tech savvy at all but might give PowerDirector a look, might take me a year to figure it out.

I have had this program for a few months now but haven't made any videos. So I been messing with it lately doing some cool stuff. But you are correct, takes time to look everything up. Setting key frames (points along the video to fade in and out other images etc.

You saw this one, the cousins. I'm liking the opening and closing credits, adding pics, fading them in and out, changing opacity to make then look faded (see thru).

Now I just discovered the blend mode, I blended these 2 clips together just as an experiment. Pretty cool ha ha!

This will be cool as I can fade a pic in the cycling videos to make it look like riding into the sunset. . Some cool stuff.


:D:p:D
