Steps

  1. 1
    First off, we are going to import a file
    .
    We'll need to make an introduction of our own in After Effects or use an After Effects template to create our own introduction. In this video, the file called "visi logo 2.aep" is clicked.

  3. 3
    We click a composition
    .
    In this video, "title" is clicked.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    With the file imported, we click it and drag it onto the timeline
    .
    We'll see what the file has. This file is going to be an intro, an outro, and the middle part that shows a logo in the top-right section of the screen. The video shows a logo for five seconds. Then, the video goes into the outro for five seconds. Now, we need to make the file work with our clip, as each clip is going to be of different size. There is not going to be one size of a clip that fits entirely into our intro and outro. We need to edit the file and separate intro from outro. In this video, one file is used because it is possible to edit the text in the file only once rather than editing the text separately for intro and outro.

  5. 5
    We edit the text
    .
    In this video, we type "Combine Image And Text". The text is the same as the file name that is shown on the right.

    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    We zoom in a bit
    .
    We'll have to make two cuts in the intro and outro. One will be where the clip changes from the intro to the middle part with the logo on the top right-hand side. The other cut will be where the clip goes from the logo on the top right-hand side to the outro, using the fade in and fade out effects.

    .
    This is where the transition begins.

    If we go left by one frame, the clip shows the same thing
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    If we go right by one frame, the clip shows the same thing
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    If we go right by one more frame, the clip shows the beginning of the outro
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    We go back to the 99th frame
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    We press "C"

    We cut again. We'll have three separate areas.

  27. 27
    We scroll down to where the menu says, "Add Frame Hold"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    We click "Add Frame Hold"
    .
    Doing this will basically take a frame from the current position and make it a still image in the video.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    .
