Rolling Your Own QuickTime Source Movies > Add Transition Space Between Clips i... - Pg. 193

Extracting Video and Audio Elements of Any QuickTime Movie for Your Digital 193 Lifestyle Projects 7. Identify the clips you captured that you want to include in your QuickTime source movie (come now, not all of that footage will be worth keeping!). 8. Edit those clips to remove the portions that you won't want to reuse. 9. Now build a basic movie by dragging the clips onto the Clip Viewer; the order in which you place them doesn't matter much since you will be extracting pieces from the source movie rather than using it as a complete movie. Now, add some black space in between the clips of your movie so that pieces of it will be easier to select and edit in QuickTime Player Pro. A simple way to do this is to place a title clip between the source clips (you can include text describing the clip or just leave the title clip blank). Add Transition Space Between Clips in a QuickTime Source Movie 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Click the Titles button on the Tools palette. Click one of the title clip styles (it doesn't matter which you choose since it will only be a spacer between clips). Check the Over Black checkbox (this places the title clip on a black screen instead of over a clip). If you want to add text describing the clip, do so. Drag the title clip between each video clip (change the text in the title clip before you drag it onto the Clip Viewer if you are including text). Repeat Step 5 to add a transition between each clip. When you are done, your source movie will have black screen transitions between each clip (see Figure 8.2).
