    Lost as to where to start with a project...please help!

    oldhat-newhat Level 1

      I need to add 2 JPG images to the front of a video and then reupload it as YouTube video. I downloaded the video from YouTube as both a FLV and a MP4 file. Is Flash the best program to add the graphics? If so, how do I get it back to FLV or MPG format? Do I need to get the orginal file from my distributor?

          as far as i know, you need Adobe Media Encoder (or premiere pro...other vid software) to make flv files.irritatingly...i don't think you can make them in flash. which seems asinine.

           

          if you have the mp4, you can open both the image and mp4 in separate Quicktime players then:

           

          edit>select all> "copy" for the image

           

          go back to the player with mp4 (be sure you're at the very first frame)

           

          edit> "add to movie"

           

          then

           

          file>export

           

          to save the whole thing as a new single file.

           

           

          if you don't have those options in your quicktime player, you might need quicktime pro...which is like $20 USD for a license.
