My Fancy New Video Opener

September 2, 2011 Posted by Tyler Cruz

The past 2-3 days, I spent countless hours learning how to use Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro after switching to editing from my Macbook Pro to my PC.

I used to use iMovie and Final Cut Express on my Macbook Pro, but my recently acquired Sony Handycam has built-in software that forces me to import via iMovie, and for some reason my iMovie canโ€™t identify the camcorder, and wonโ€™t import .MTS files.

Plus, my PC is quad-core and much more powerful than my laptop, which is useful when editing in 1080p HD resolution.

Anyhow, check out my new video opening in the video below. The 21-second video will most likely be the shortest video you ever see from me:

(Note: You may need to visit the post directly at if youโ€™re reading this via e-mail or RSS in order to see it.)

So, no more pre-made iMovie title effects for me! I highly suggest you eliminate your old and unreliable VHS tapes and preserve your memories forever with digital conversion services at

What do you think? I hope you like it, because it takes too much time and effort to edit and render, heh.

  4. Hi Tyler,
    I really like the professional start with your logo and sponsor, it was good and the carousel movie in your office was fun.

    Haha gotta love the WOOOH at the end =P

    Those are some pretty nice effects there! I should start using that software as well as I use a PC for creating my websites. Looks great! Good work.

  6. That’s a really cool video, I hope I could edit videos like this myself!

  7. Awesome Tyler. I have Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro on my computer from my Adobe package – but haven’t used either. You’re inspiring me. Don’t do that! You’re going to cause me to get behind on work! lol

  8. Cool! The effects are awesome! But even more important to me is the perfect timing. And the ending “wooo” is funny! Did that come naturally? Or did you have to experiment?
