So I know we are just coming off the World Cup and everyone has the soccer bug right now, but I am obsessed with this team. I’ve been Jurgen and the boys since before they were a team, back three years ago when Klinsmann was hired.
This is a collage I just made of me and my mom at games and such. I could go on for days about this team, but I think you all will appreciate it if I just stop here.
When I found a Video Assignment that told me to make a montage of a team, OF COURSE I was going to jump on that opportunity. Here is a video i made to honor the USMNT and their hard fought games in Brazil this year.
For this assignment, I used the program that was already on my computer called. muvee Reveal. I had to sign up for a free 15 day trial. To be honest, I didn’t like the program very much; granted this could be because I had the basic package. But I think that for my next assignment I will be using a different program. I realized half way through that I didn’t like it, but I figured I would finish up my video and post what I did to create it hear. Maybe some of my classmates have had better success using the program! That or I may just be a warning against using it in the future.
As I said before, when I first opened the program I had to sign up for a free 15 day trial. After that I found all of the pictures that I wanted to use through Google and saved them to my computer. I couldn’t us video (much to my disapointment) because there was no way to get them from the internet into the program.
Then I opened them in the program and arranged them to roughly correlate with the game progression.
After I arranged the pictures I decided on the style “Hexplode” to display the photos, which was labeled as a sports themed style and was by far the best choice.
Finally, I added the music. I chose “Remember the Name”, which my high school soccer team used to use as a warm up song. I thought that it went along with the USMNT mentality during this tournament. They went into every game with the intention of proving that they were a team that could compete with the highest internationals. (And they proved it. Don’t fight me on that one.)
I had a little trouble saving the video, which saved as a “rvl” and was not compatible with this website or YouTube.
After going to “File” and “Save and Share your muvee…” I came across a helpful list. I selected the “Advanced” option.
This brought me to a large list of options. I chose to save my project as a “MOV”.
After saving, the video was too big to upload directly onto this post. I instead had to upload it onto YouTube and imbed it from there.
I hope that this post was helpful to everyone!
