Create a Moving Travel Line on a Mapgilliandarby
By Maliek Whitaker
Here is a great technique to add a cool effect to your vacation video projects. In this tutorial, Pinnacle Studio Pro Maliek will show you how to draw your travel route on a map and add an effect so that it looks like the line is being drawn across the screen. First you will learn how to use a photo editing product like Paint to draw a line on a map designating a travel route. Then Maliek brings the map into Pinnacle to create the effect. He discusses how to use two identical maps and layer them in the timeline. Once that is done he shows you how to use 2D Editor Advanced and keyframes to crop the top layer of maps in order to create movement as if a line is being drawn on the video screen. This is a simple cool effect that can add a lot to your vacation, trip, and holiday videos.
