Usually, I make animations, so I just have the rendered images all in a row, and then a single audio file – somewhat chopped up, but still coming from a single file.
But a few months ago, I made more of a traditional “movie” made up of single images, bits of videos, and lots of added text. It seems to be the new ‘trend’ for ‘granting agencies’ to now require you – that is “highly encourage” – to include a video in your application submission. It’s not because they’re going to choose you – oh, heavens, no – they just want to get the satisfaction of making you do more work for nothing.
Well, any case, this was what my video editing sequencer ended up looking like:
Pretty interesting to see that outcome! The turquoise is the audio; the black at the bottom is a black background for any blank space; the purple is various mages; the gold is text; and the green is to changes the sizes of the images. I forget what the blue is for, though!
This is the sequencer in Blender, by the way.
