This first book trailer was difficult, due to FotoMagico. Images would disappear and getting the timing right was overly convoluted and buggy. I couldn’t even make changes to the project after saving. The end result was close to what I was trying to do, but it took way too long to get there.Made with FotoMagico
For the second trailer I went in a simpler direction. I had learned that Amazon’s video area is tiny and not resizable, so the words had to be much bigger. Sticking to a basic style emphasized the content better.Made with Pinnacle Studio
Currently I am learning how to use Adobe After Effects to get better results on similar projects for greater control and quality.
I made this one twice as long since it was a full book and so I could add some depth to the trailer. A slower, thoughtful cadence matches the reflective nature of the book.Made with Pinnacle Studio
