Baseball Sample

For this assignment we were given an audio clip, video clip, and a few different images to create a baseball introduction. We used Adobe Premier Pro to configure the project. With this advanced program we used a scrubber as place mark throughout the video, the Ken Burns effect to zoom and pan between different images, and several other tools within the program. I did the most experimenting with Premier Pro transition effects. Figuring out different ways to introduce new slides while keeping the tone consistent. Learning how to implement the Ken Burns effect was a bit tricky for me. The little details within Premier Pro will make or break a video. After watching tutorial videos from YouTube, creating this project became much smoother.
