I have yet another small AMV question.
This time, I'm working on a video which I want to have sort of a 'instant black screen' effect on. How to explain?
Well, I want the screen to turn black in a flash, and then become normal again so it fits to the drums in the song I'm using as BGM.
I hope you roughly understand what I'm talking about.
So the question itself would be, which program to use? And how to do it?
It's not what life makes of you, but what you make of life.
I think it's everyone's instinct to assume that everyone uses premiere.
"The way I'm doing it I haven't seen anyone else do EVER. I'm spending so much time on this one and like I said, my formula is working out rather well. All of the series I'm using are just flowing into eatchother, and rather than representing a character from a series, their basically representing good or evil. I know this one will stand out from the rest. I'm confident it will. " - Sephirothskr
Making a solid black image has nothing to do with video editing hardware or software... heck, you can just open MS Paint, create a 720x480 image, fill it on 100% solid black, save it as a bitmap, then import the bitmap into your video editor.
I haven't met a program that won't let you place a solid black image in your video. It's how I put my blank space in the videos. Pinnacle and Premiere let you do it. Often just drag the still image onto your timeline and crop it down to what you need.
