All right folks, - here’s something special I guess.
This SHOTCUT project contains no film clips, no image files and no audio files!
Only a font in the system font folder “CBM.ttf” is accessed for the text, which should be installed.
IMPORTANT: I have created it under the SHOTCUT version 20.04.12!
Whether it also runs in higher versions, I cannot say for sure.
My idea was ONLY to make a movie with the SHOTCUT effects to show what this program is capable of and that in a total size of only 0.9 Megabyte.
For this demonstration film, which shows the optical flair and character of a Commodore C-64 home computer, I used the following effects (unfortunately SHOTCUT has only one sine tone as oscillator):
- Audio Tone (Sinus, Noise).
- Fade In Audio.
- Fade Out Audio.
- Colour (Transparent, White, Black, Blue, Lightblue).
- Scan Lines.
- Size and Position.
- Rotate and Scale.
- No Sync.
- Text: Simple.
- Text: HTML (for Banner/Introscreen).
- Crop: Rectangle.
- Crop: Circle.
- Blend Mode(Over, Multiply).
- Fade In Video.
- Fade Out Video.
- 14 Video.
- 3 Audio.
*** Notes on the ‘picture effects’:
The “PONG” machine cabinet is pure HTML code.
The background is a ‘plasma’ effect in SHOTCUT.
The “ATARI” logo is with cropping: Rectangle and circle created.
*** Notes on the ‘sound effects’:
Keyframes: 2-frame-step pitch effect in the clip with keyframes in the Timeline track to increase and decrease the pitch.
Many hours of work and creativity went into this project, especially the keyframing for the sound effects, which are partly ‘interlaced’.
