How to prepare for a New Year’s party, Zach King style (2017)

October 31, 2019

М: Hello, guys! I’m Maria
R: and I’m Roman and Happy New Year to you all! R: The winter holidays is a great time for
parties with friends, families, and colleagues. М: So here’s our best advice on how to
prepare for the celebration. М: Looks impressive, doesn’t it? R: Here’s a new video in Zach King instant-magic
style, – watch it now on the Movavi channel. Р: Let’s clear up a mystery – anyone can
make a video like this. Simple montage, and a little bit of magic! М: So how do we change your casual look to
a party dress using a spinning chair? Let’s shoot the first part of our video
when Maria looks at her watch and wheels away on a chair from the table. Let’s spin Maria clockwise and remember the
position in which she stops. The second part in the party dress needs to
be shot right after the first one without changing the position of the camera, the objects
in the frame or the lighting. Now using the same technique we’ll film
a scene in which Anastasia retrieves a bow tie from the white board! Let’s shoot how Roman draws the bow tie on the white board Now film the second part with a real bow tie. Make a sharp movement with your hands as if
the bow tie has just been fixed. M: Well…now it’s just a bunch of shots…no magic R: Don’t worry, my skeptical friend, you just
need to believe in miracles M: you mean a video editing miracle? R: Well, you need to believe in something
once – especially after all this time you found it was your uncle leaving gifts, not
the real Santa. Upload your clips to a video editing program. We use Movavi Video Editor. Find the place in the first video where Maria
spins around the fastest, cut the clip before this point. Everything after this moment, we’ll delete. Now in the second video, we find the exact
same moment when the chair is spinning and cut everything before this point. М: You get it, right? R: We just combined two clips with the same
trajectory! М: Our brain,just like a video editor, merges
the two clips together in one smooth movement. R: This technique is called action cutting. R: If you pay close attention, you’ll spot
this technique being used in many Hollywood movies. М: But want about the Christmas presents? Р: We can’t have a party without presents. How can we create a conveyor belt of presents
just like the elves have in their factory? First, we need to shoot the scene where the
box rolls around the table. It doesn’t matter that the box can get stuck
in the pile of wrapping paper. We just need to set the movement trajectory. Then, without changing the position of the
characters, we’ll shoot the already wrapped box rolling around the table through the cut
out sheet of the wrapper. Now go back to your video editor and place
this video above the first one so they merge at the point at which the box rolls exactly
into the middle of the frame Now use the picture-in-picture tool with a
vertical division. One extra little trick: we deliberately filmed
our characters from a distance, so we could create the effect of camera motion. Export the two sections of clips as one video. Then upload it again to the video editor. Zoom in a bit and add animation to your video. Move the video to create the effect of the
camera following the presents. Add festive music and your instructions on
how to prepare yourself for the New Year party are ready. M: Wow, how cool is that? R: Now you know how to add a little bit of
magic to your videos. М: Watch this video to get some more ideas
on how you can use a split screen in your videos. R: Subscribe to our channel now, ring the
bell below and you won’t miss all the cool stuff we’ve prepared for you for the new year. Happy New Year to you all!

    Hi, I am having trouble with the screen recorder in the latest Movavi Video Suite. The video is blurry. I tried to turn the FPS up, but that didn't work. It's ok if you don't know how to fix it.

    I love the idea of that last one and how it's done with split screen.

    By the way, I probably should've asked first. Is it okay to use the Movavi Video Editor logo on a YouTube video thumbnail? I made a video on Movavi and that's why I used it. If it's an issue, I can edit the thumbnail easily.
