Decidedly, the marketing of Studio 9 had more unbridled imaginations. We appealed to DGrenier for you to share a good time of the day. He created a video tutorial entirely while the video tutorials were in their infancy. Then install yourself comfortable and for once, you do not need you to keyboard, it explains everything on video. You just need to open your big eyes and your ears especially if you want to enjoy the humor to the end!

Step 1 : A little motivation anyway...

You make frequent slide shows, but they remain "bland", "lifeless" and "flat".

Solution: we must work to change the images before your plan. Then, thanks to Pinnacle Studio and its two video tracks and different filters, you animate all ...

Bonus : You can download the appropriate sound file Meuglement.wav available in the « Associated Files » section below.

Step 2 : The tutorial explanatory humorous

If with this you can not make us slides "sparkling", "lively" and "relief" is to despair of everything.

Translation from the french video tutorial:



  1. replace the background by a color, using PaintShop Pro or PhotoShop
  2. find a similar background
  3. put the background on the first video track, the main subject on 2nd track, add color inlay
  4. pan and zoom on first video track, zoom 10, move horizontal -2.7 to +2.7
  5. pan and zoom on second video track, zoom 10, move horizontal -5 to +5
  6. blur effect first video track, value: 2, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0
  7. add sound effect

{Thanks to Loosecannon for the fine tuning}

I have not seen this tutorial and it is very interesting.
Our grafx club does a lot with photo shop and do a lot of background changes.
We have never thought of keeping them as layers (so to speak)
This is very good as we can blur the background and create a false depth of field. The main subject is kept as the subject and by paning the background gives this a film and slight 3D effect.

Fantastic !! Thanks for the inspiration and knowledge to better ourselves.

Hey Gert, you are so quick to reply to these tutorials you must be sitting at the computer waiting for them to come in!
I love these and cant wait for the next one.
