Step 3: Marking the Freezing Point
With your action sequence on the Timeline, you will mark the Stop and Go points acted out by your performer, as described in the earlier section Filming Tips." This preparation will save time later when you fine-tune the effect and add sound effects.
Task: Add two markers to the Timeline by following these steps:
- Use the Zoom Slider to fill the Timeline with the clip you have just placed on the Main_Video track.
- Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, move the Current Timeline Indicator (CTI) forward a few frames at a time, until you've identified the point where your actor shouts, "Stop." This is the point where you want the object to freeze (see Figure 11).
- With the CTI in the correct position, press the asterisk (*) key on your keyboard's number pad to add a marker to the Timeline (see Figure 12).
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 of this task to create a marker where your actor shouts, "Go" (see Figure 13).
