Combining 3D Arsenal and SpeedEdit
3D Arsenal is video editor software specially designed for 3D animation effects. The user-friendly interface makes it an easy-to-use program, even for nonprofessional users. You can also combine it with a SpeedEdit plug-in for the best performance.
Step 1: Using Special Features
3D Arsenal allows you to add special features to your project such as Text FX, Video FX and 3D Composites. Its prebuilt content allows users to add special graphic effects, visual effects and motion effects to their video projects. The best thing about 3D Arsenal is that you can use it with other non-linear editing systems. The prebuilt scenes are ideal to create custom video effects and integrate your video project into 3D environments. You can also combine your blue or green screen footage into beautiful 3D sets. Users can add animation and 3D logo effects as well with the Easy Text feature. Simply type in your text and apply the desired effects, then let the transformation take place.
Step 2: 3D Arsenal System Compatibility
3D Arsenal is compatible with any non-linear editing system, but SpeedEDIT offers endless advantages in using it. When combining these programs, you can create interesting 3D video effects. 3D Arsenal is also compatible with other video editor programs such as TriCaster, LightWave 3D, 3Play or even VT, allowing users to add third dimensions to compositing capabilities. You can connect product accessories to these programs for a full video editing experience. Make use of accessories such as LiveControl™, TimeWarp™, LiveText™, Graphics Packs, LiveSet™ Packs and 3D Content Packs.
Step 3: Using 3D Arsenal with SpeedEDIT
Rendering option allows you to use auto-framing and export your AVI output with Alpha QuickTime in movie files. You can also use 32 Bit Targa sequences (TGA32). This allows you to perform additional editing to your video and make it compatible with other systems as well. SpeedEDIT is a smart video editor that auto-detects any Target32 sequence. With just a simple mouse click over the Targa or TGA32 files, the user is allowed to view a real-time preview sequence of the animation. This way, the user doesn’t have to import the sequence or drag it into the library; he can directly access it in the hard drive. Users can simply drag the Targa sequence from the hard drive into the StoryBoard, also known as TimeLine.
Step4: Video Effects in SpeedEDIT
Here is where SpeedEdit comes in. On the TimeLine, SpeedEDIT auto detects the sequence, treating it as a virtual clip. This makes the sequence instantly available for use with the 3D composite and allowing you to edit it in real time. You can create logos over video footage, create animation effects and add backgrounds. SpeedEDIT and 3D Arsenal allows you to create multiple resolutions and apply different effects on the same video footage. You can also combine and match high definition resolutions with standard definition elements in the same video project.
3D Arsenal is compatible with both Linux and Windows and requires no previous 3D editing experience.
