Final Steps: Test Render and Add Sound

At this stage, you have the start of a very cool-looking effect, with the laser beam shooting out of the gun and vanishing offscreen. To enhance the effect further, you can adjust the opacity of the beam, reducing it to around 80%. Try adding other effects to see if they enhance the laser beam in any way. Experimentation is the key to fun video editing (see Figure 29).

When you're finished tweaking the various parameters, press the Enter key on your keyboard to try a quick test render. Once the render has finished, press the spacebar to see the effect in motion.

With the visual and audio elements set to your taste, press Ctrl-S to save the project, and then press the Enter key on your keyboard to render the movie again if necessary. Once the render has completed, save the project as an AVI file by selecting File > Export > Movie (see Figure 30).
