Lesson 7. Special Effects for Film > Using a process flow

Using a process flow

Before you start the project, you will open the completed project and examine some process flow issues.

  1. Choose File > Open, and select the 07Proj.aep file in the 07Lesson folder.

  2. Click OK if a dialog box prompts you that the file has been changed.

    The Project window contains six numbered compositions as well as a folder containing QuickTime movies and still images.


    Figure .


    In this project, compositions are numbered according to a process flow from 1, which is a Cineon file conversion composition, to 6, which is the final rendered movie.

    Now you'll close the finished project and start constructing your own special effects for film. Instead of creating a new project, you open a project that has already been started.

  3. Choose File > Open. You may need to click the Don't Save button to close the 07project file without saving changes. Select 07begin.aep in the 07Lesson folder, and click Open.

    This project contains a Timing Script composition that has been set up for you and that you will use later in the lesson.

  4. Choose File > Save As, name the file 07Work.aep, and save it into your Projects folder.
