My last visual assignment was the three and a half star “It’s Vacation Time” assignment, which was honestly my favorite. As much as I said I liked the dog assignment this one tops it.
The montage in this video was supposed to be made up of pictures of my favorite vacation, however I do not have pictures in my possession of every vacation I have taken and I do not feel like I have a favorite vacation. If I did though, it would probably be the one we took last year with my high school band to Disney World and Universal Studios, we spent three days there, one in Magic Kingdom, one in Epcot, and one where we could travel on the Hogwarts express between the two Universal Parks, and we marched in Epcot center on day two. Being there with my parents and sister and all my friends then getting to march was the best experience of my life so far, the only way it could have been better is if my boyfriend could have come with us.
I again used the Magix Edit Pro Plus and inserted all my pictures, however, I found a new setting that would help me do it faster, I picked my favorite transitions and effects then set how often in the show I wanted it to appear, after I hit the apply button it automatically randomly applied the effects. I watched the video and was able to switch around what I did not like. After that I added the sound and trimmed it to fit the length. I did have some issues with the sound, at first I used “When You Wish Upon A Star” and “You’ll Be In My Heart” for the two songs, I loved the effect and the mood it gave the video. Then I got emails saying the songs were copyrighted and would be blocked in some countries, when I looked at the list of countries it was pretty much all of them…
I ended up using Celine Dion’s version of “How Does A Moment Last Forever” from the newest Beauty and the Beast movie (can be used as long as I do not monetize it) and I still liked the way it turned out.
