AV Corner — March

An AV sequence is a series of photos that form a unit, which are connected by a subject and/or a photo technique.

The Zoom Technique

The photo sequence begins from a distance and moves closer to the object, or vice versa.

Here are the keyboard shortcuts we used for the demonstrations of the in-screen editing at the AV meeting in February:

Please note that the functions described as follows are only referring to what we did on Wednesday. We will look at more options at our next meeting.

  • Keep down P, click inside the pre-view screen once and turn the mouse wheel to change the size of screen display.
  • Keep down S, click inside the screen once to activate the in-screen editing. A yellow frame with handles will be visible.
  • Keep down V while moving the picture in a vertical direction only.
  • Keep down H while moving the picture in a horizontal direction only.

Editing of zoom positions with key frames:

Once a zoom position is set keep down one of the following short cut keys and click once the pre-view screen to copy the values.

  • C for Constant position for the object
  • B for key frame values constant from Beginning
  • E for key frame values constant to End

PS: The ‘toolbar for the object editing’ in the Wings program window (blue icons next to the Explorer window) are the basis for the short cut keys.

Are you looking for a very helpful way to learn more about Wings???

Have a look at the Video Tutorials on the Wings DVD. There is an option to download them to your PC to have them handy whenever you need some inspiration.
