my first trailer 04 Nov 2015 21:13 #70231

hi all

I made a trailer for a piano tutorial channel I will be starting soon on youtube...
I am a pianist ;-) and I like to play with FCP.
Any comments/tips would be appreciated...

I see some jagged dissolves that I would expect to be smoother.

(video is unlisted and please do not share, its work in progress)

30 second trailer.
shot on iPhone 5s.
dissolves are fade in/fade out (5 frames, or 3 frames long)

Frame rate: current
Key frames: automatic
Frame reordering checked
Data rate restricted to 8000

That was pretty good, and made me interested to see more.

Should I fault anything, then I think you should overlay the shots of yourself WITHOUT covering the fingering going on, make the fingering background a little smaller and move it to the side?

Didn't notice anything at all re. dissolves.
