T351 Keyable Graphic Exercise
Overview: You'll make a keyable graphic (title or lower third for example) for either a MCU interview shot or a scene of your Storyboard/Continuity project.
Design a keyable graphic for your project. It should contain:
- At least one text element
- At least one shape
- At least one other visual element (image, design, etc.)
Be sure to follow the rules of design (See Jim's
When you are finished do two things:
- Place a 1920 x 1080 (full-raster HD) single-layer TIFF with an alpha channel saved as your IU login name (mine would be jarkraus.tif) in the T351 Oncourse/Resources/Graphics folder. (7 points)
- Import it into Avid Media Composer or Adobe Premiere over some video. How does it look? You can move it around a bit if needed. When you are finished, output a JPEG frame (1920 x 1080) called your IU login name (mine would be jarkraus.jpg) and copy it into the Oncourse/resources/Graphics folder as well (3 points)
If you want some HD MCUs to use for lower thirds, you can find a zipped file here.
