I'm trying to bring a clip into my project that starts small, curls its way in from a distance, and gradually fills the screen.
I've mostly succeeded, I think, by using one of PiP presets and combining it with the 3D effect, tweaking the motion controls.
Now the clip does sort of what I want, but the screen background is totaly black while the clip progresses into it. I'd like to give the screen a colour.
Can anybody tell me how to do this?
Make sure you're in timeline view and that the clip you're resizing is on the Video 2 track.
In the Project media panel, click on the New Item button in the upper right. (It looks like a piece of paper with one corner folded down.)
Select Color Matte, and create this clip in whatever color you want.
Place this clip on the Video 2 track, below the clip you're resizing.
How simple. Works perfectly.
