Where I’d like to be

Where is somewhere that you have always dreamed of going? I really like travelling, and I often think about where I would go if I had all the money in the world. Do a video montage of images and/or video of the places that you would like to go, and add music that is native to the that area or just something fun. 

(Video Assignment Where do you want to go?)

For this assignment I made a short montage of places in Italy I would like to see. The reason for this is I was supposed to go on a trip to Italy and Croatia in May of 2020. I had been looking forward to this trip for a long time when covid hit and I watched the weeks tick by as more and more trips got canceled and borders closed until finally they canceled my trip in April. I was sad as we were going on this trip to celebrate my moms birthday and we had even scored business class plane tickets extremely cheap making it even more exciting. I still really want to go and even though it may not be for awhile, we are already looking to plan the trip again!

Tutorial:

To start out I had to import all my images into the windows video editor. To do this you need to click the add button below project library.

Once you select the images or videos you want, you must drag them down to the story board or right click and click place in story board.

Then you must select the duration of each image you added. To do that click duration, then either click a preset or type it in the custom box.

The next step would be adding title and end cards.

Once you add the title card and move it where you want, you must add the text.

Once you click add text, you can type the words you want, select a style, choose the layout, and add it to your title or end card.

Then you have to add the audio over the entire video.

When using custom audio, click the custom audio button then click add audio file. Once it has been imported, extend the bar to cover however much of the video you want the audio over.

Then watch through your video to be sure you like it and export!

One thought on “Where I’d like to be

  1. Nice job! You chose some very pretty pictures and I really enjoyed the elegant classical music in the background. I too, had a trip that was cancelled. I was supposed to spend my summer in Spain for a study abroad, however it got cancelled. So, I made plans to go to Australia in December instead, but that got cancelled as well. I hope we are all able to safely travel soon!

    Maybe next time you could add some words or slide transitions to spice up the video!
