    A Corel chat agent suggested that VideoStudio 2020 was the software for the task I have. Could you please confirm.
    I’m trying to create a graphics in motion intro for the video presentation I am creating for our graduating seniors at Pender High School, where I teach.
    The graphics in motion that I like is created with After Effects.
    I do not use any Adobe software, I’ve always used Corel products. (For over 20 years now)
    I would like to use all the photos of the seniors and have them flying towards the viewer and then go off screen.
    Is this something that CVS2020 can do?

      Hello Markil,

      Yes, you could do that in VideoStudio! The ‘flying’ effect can be done by using keyframes to tell the picture to move from one point onscreen to another, and enlarging as they move to make them appear to be getting closer. You can see these tools in action in our Adding Custom Motion Effects tutorial. Hope this helps!

        Thank you so much for your response! I have 174 pics I want to put on the opening frame and then have them each move up and out, etc. I know very little about all of this. I teach carpentry in our local high school, but I wanted to do something for our graduating class. This class has suffered through two catastrophic hurricanes, the floods that followed, and now this virus. I would really like to make this graduation special in spite of all that’s been thrown against them. Is there a template you could suggest? Anything you could help me with would be so greatly appreciated.

          Hi Markil,

          I’m not sure we have a template that does quite what you are looking for, but if you are using paths, it should be quick to set something up. We would suggest building a set of, say, six or so custom motion paths that have pictures fly by to the left, right, top, and bottom of the screen, with a couple other path angles for variety. You can then save those paths and quickly apply them to multiple images, without having to recreate the same thing for every image.

    If I design a brochure with pics and text to page size A5 for example, is it possible to adjust the entire contents to A4 including text size adjustment? I select all elements and adjust size, pics obviously no problem but text remains original font size. Test are in text frames.
