Where do you folks go for effects like this?

My father uses Vegas and he loves it. For me and my simple YouTube videos it's just to complicated. Still, it would be so cool to be able to make things like this (see link below). Other than creating this on Vegas and importing that video into SF is there any other 3rd party tools you folks have found to create things like this to use in your videos?

    We do have our own graphics packs but nothing quite like that.

    I bought that pack already Craig, and like you said, their nothing like that one I linked. OK, just was wondering if there was an application out there that just made effects like this. I don't want another editing tool, just something to build these effects.

    Apple Motion or Adobe After Effects. There's a very steep learning curve.

  • You could look for apps and demos such as Quartz Cube or investigate Quartz Composer as a solution. Then, too, there are HTML 5 apps such as Timult Hype that will do all sorts of graphic manipulations. I suppose that stop motion video could also be employed.

    you can pay someone at fiverr to do it for you, if you just want an intro or logo animation for your video. The really nice ones are templates at videohive. But as the moderator said, you need to use after effects (or I guess apple motion)... which does have a hard learning curve, but some templates allow you to simply change the text and drop in images or videos.

  • Yet another but simpler and easier approach to this goal is to use Keynote or Powerpoint to do brief intros and outros using their animation and transition capabilities. It's quite trivial to do a lower third animation that you can capture with ScreenFlow. Once captured, use the chroma key capability in post and export as a video that can be placed in front of your opening scene. 

    To capture Keynote or Powerpoint in action, one must start the presentation first and then start recording. This necessitates a little trimming in post - no big deal.

    Inexpensive and easy to do

  • You can find tons of things like that and more at Videohive.net . You buy a project file (usually a bundle of projects) for tools like Adobe After Effects, Apple Motion or other systems. That means you need to own or have access to one of those programs to customize and render your effect.

  • Given that ScreenFlow can capture whatever is on the screen means that there are  a great many options for recording animated effects. A few more: Online presentation apps such as Prezi as well as desktop apps such as Timeline 3D and Wolfram Mathematica

    You can also do some neat effects JUST with screenflow, although it takes quite a lot of time. Here's a sequence I animated with just screenflow:

    Also if people want to use code for anything 'the coding train' makes some good videos about it such things. E.G.:

     CraigS  I suppose I should add a disclaimer that I am not affiliated with either of those nor have I used either... though I have had a couple projects where I have looked into them.

    CraigS I tend to have fairly simple transitions and the like, but where I do want more Keynote works for me... with some timing adjustments made in ScreenFlow. I have attached the intro I use on most of my own videos.

  • Craig, I'm new to ScreenFlow but I am finding it really useful for much of what I do. I started creating my educational videos using Tumult Hype about six weeks ago so I'm no expert but it is really useful for creating certain things to be used in ScreenFlow so I'm using them both, with ScreenFlow as my main engine.

     

    You can create the kind of thing you posted above using Hype and exporting it as a video to use in ScreenFlow - I haven't used the rotate and skew functions in Hype but in less than a couple of minutes I came up with the attached video to give you an idea of what it is more than capable of. The spinning images were created in Hype, exported as a movie, and loaded into ScreenFlow where I added a drum track - you'll get the idea of what using the two together is capable of I hope. Thanks to your post I'm looking forward to using Hype to create dynamic intros for my ScreenFlow productions 👍🏼

     

    Cheers,

    Hadge

  • Yes, Hype provides easy access to HTML 5 animation. It also exports HTML 5 widgets for Dashboard and iBooks Author. There is also an even more capable Hype Pro. Similar apps: Apple offered Quartz Composer and iAd Producer but I don't believe that either is being actively supported these days.

    For those interested in Tumult Hype

  • I use Tumult Hype Pro which offers an educational discount but even without the discount it is reasonably priced and really is an amazing piece of software - I am not affiliated in any way so my recommendation is unbiased.

    I really do feel that ScreeFlow and Tumult Hype Pro together make a great team and meet all my presentation/tutorial needs.

     

    Check it out 😉
