Here's my dilemma: I was under the impression, up until nine o'clock last night, that I would be delivering a presentation to a little symposium on Monday, in person, via whatever method I preferred. (Keynote, yay!) But this morning, I discover they would prefer the presentation be a multimedia thing (which it was going to be anyway) delivered in a sort of pseudo-documentary style. Which means I've less than a week to cobble my findings into a twenty-minute video presentation. Really, this doesn't intimidate me too much, but I confess I've never done it. I played around in iMovie back in 07-08, and was surprised when I finally opened iMovie '09 to see the... difference. Wow. I already have a lot of video I would have needed to incorporate into the Keynote presentation (this is a cultural studies presentation, and the topic is a television show, so... yeah) so having enough material isn't the problem. But for ease of use and not... well.... not having a newbie-tackiness to it, which would you recommend? And for what it's worth, I do consider myself pretty savvy, and have been knocking around inside Photoshop and other decently complex programs for a bit. Aside from the ability to incorporate my video clips well (which are mostly in .mp4s, with some mov files, although I know I'll probably have to change the format) and provide some clean transitions between clips, stills, etc., I'm chiefly interested how well it will incorporate narration/music tracks and over-all quality of the output. So... suggestions? I have FCPX in the trial version, and I'm presuming the 30 days are 30 days of joyous freedom to use it however I please, but if that presumption is wrong, then let me know, too. Or, if there's a better recommendation (and free/low-cost), and I'm willing to hear that, as well! Thank you so, so much.
