Owl could not resist either and decided to make a couple of his own tutorial videos.
He flew in at night and sat down on the windowsill of Christopher Robin's room. “Twit twoo! Twit twoo!” Owl uttered their secret signal.
“Christopher, I've decided to make an educational video. This video must have austere effects. The final frame should be black; it should display the link to my educational YouTube channel. How to fade-to-black in the online movie maker?”
Christopher invited Owl to fly into the room and take a seat on the table near his laptop.
Owl, I'll show you everything on my MacBook and record a lesson along the way. Here's the added video clip.
- Click on the Background button.
- On the next page, click the button for adding a color.
- Drag the sliders to select the desired color; click on the Save button.
- The newly added color frame is now displayed as the background.
- Place the color frame after your video by drag-and-dropping it.
- On this frame, click on the button in the upper left corner repeatedly, until it disappears. Now the black frame is set to automatically appear at the very end.
Next, you have to set several parameters for the newly added color frame by pressing the editing button :
- Direction of appearance - set it to “no movement” by selecting the icon .
- Initial scaling - no scaling; set the value at 1.
- Duration of appearance - set the duration of the fade-to-black effect (for example, 3 seconds).
- Transition effect - it's best to opt for the smooth transition effect .
- Direction of disappearance - set it to “no movement” by clicking on the icon .
- End scale - this value does not matter.
- Duration of disappearance - set it at 0 seconds, as the frame doesn't have to disappear.
- Duration - specify the on-screen time of the black color frame.
- Image location - set it to the entire frame .
- Fit to frame - set it to fill all the space .
That done, go back to the editor and click on the Create Video button. At the end, your video will fade to black.
Of course, you also can add the closing credits if you want.
And here's the video in which I showed you how to fade to black effect. Just in case you forget it while flying back.
