Most video editors allow you to create scrolling credits. You have probably noticed that these scrolling credits often have two columns. The left column allows you to enter the character name or technicians function and the right column displays the actors or technicians names. To obtain this type of display, titling software provides a tab function to align columns. Curiously, the different Studio title editors have never had this feature. So we have to find another way to create tabs without a tab function and with only Studio Plus or Ultimate.

During the era of the 32 bit Studio, many users were using the "Spot" plugin from WLFfilter to blur a face ... But now with 64 bit Studio, nothing has replaced the plugin we enjoyed so much. Of course, it is possible to use the 2-Camera effect to blur a rectangle on a face, but this workaround is not appropriate for everyone...

Since Studio 16, a new way of saving projects has emerged. Looking back a bit, there is very little discussion on the forums and we could, in effect, deduce two things: this is an unknown and unused functionality or it is used but there is no problem for its users. I would lean towards the first hypothesis, and even if you use it, I'm not sure that you have mastered the whole process really well.

There is no magic in this feat but the clever use of different effects used to achieve it. This effect requires the use of video footage  using two (2) Green screens,  a jpeg image with a Green screen TV,  a Motion video background and a pre-made Mpeg 4 credit video.

We have already published several tutorials about creating end credits. Probably, one of the oldest is the tutorial "Closing Credits - "Star Wars"" because it was already on the old Declic-Video site. That tutorial used the 3rd party plugin JPs Effects . Then came the video tutorial "Tip-4 Closing Credits (#182)" and the "Using the HFX effect 312-finale." tutorial which used Hollywood FX. Then with Pinnacle Studio Ultimate (V14 or higher), it was the Motion titles highlighted by the tutorial "Overview of Motion Title" that were used to make "Closing Credits Using Only Pinnacle Studio" and see how Pinnacle Studio was able to do this task on it's own. Finally it was Avid Studio's turn (or new Studio versions) that did all the work to make a new kind of end credit in "Studio can Create End Credits on It's Own".

Today, with Studio 16 or Studio 17, we will try to do almost the same thing, using titles and effects of the Ultimate version.

I promised you a tutorial on how to use the digital alarm clock that you made ​​with Boris Graffiti. I guess a number of you have already managed to achieve this integration in Studio. So maybe I should just provide a simple outline in Studio 17. But I don't want to disappoint you, so I will give you a readymade Boris Graffiti effect that's a little more sophisticated than what you may have already done. You can then take the time to dissect it and see the differences from the one you created from the Boris Graffiti tutorial. If you wish, you can make a double integration embellished with some sound effects that you can download...

Previous users of Studio did not think much of the audio plugin that came as a bonus with Studio 11. iZotope Music & Speech Cleaner, the bonus audio plugin that comes with Studio 17 Ultimate, in my opinion, deserves a little more attention. This software is not integrated as a plugin into Studio but is used as a standalone program only. It is fairly easy to implement and gives quite good results on the most common corrections. It can be used to record any audio coming into your sound card as a digital audio file. Once your audio has been recorded into a digital audio file, you can use your recordings in other applications.

It wasn't that long ago that we didn't do too much with special effects. Rummaging through my personal archives, I found a clip that I modified with Studio 12. I'm suggesting that we take the original clip and see what we can do with it in Studio 16. This clip was shot on an adult sized airplane carousel ride. The effect I'm proposing is simple, use the  "Rotation" effect to make the occupants of the carousel ride do some quarter rolls before landing. Aerobatic specialists can certainly blame my lack of flying experience for not attempting an Immelmann ... but this is only an example of implementing an effect, and nothing more...

From the first use of Avid Studio, one must admit that we are in a totally different environnement from that of Pinnacle Studio 1-15. But we are not too much disoriented, because a majority of the known elements are there. Except that during first editing, one may ask the question: "where's the little checkmark indicating the use of a clip in the current movie? ". This is in order to solve this problem that I suggest you to discover this tutorial.

The ‘rippling’ function is designed to place the same identical transition between a number of continuous clips or photographs on the time-line.

Depending on the version, the interface is different and the mode of application changes slightly but the principle remains. This tutorial helps you to move easily from older versions to the new Studio versions.

Transparency allows you to create special effects (PIP like).

It is this process that I refer to in the following example.
