To complete our short film we edited it on Final Cut Pro to make it look more professional and sufficient. We started off by importing around 30 clips from the SD memory card onto our video drive and Final Cut. I really enjoy taking part in editing and working with Final Cut, and want to continue learning new techniques and effects to make my final film even better.
We then added a cross dissolve, to give out the effect that our character appears out of nowhere, so this made the character seem mysterious and interesting. In our first preliminary exercise we used a dissolve called 'additive dissolve' which included a flash of light while she appears. But in our second try we decided that it didn't look as effective as a ‘cr0ss dissolve’, so we chose to use that instead.
