      I want to create like opening credits to my home videos. Which software is the best to use. I have Ulead Video Studio 8 but I don’t get it quite right with this one. I also have Adobe After Effects but it’s a bit difficult to use. Can someone please help me. Thank you

      After Effects is the best for titling, in my opinion. Exactly what do you need done, I can probably walk you through it step by step.

      Thanks Ryan. I would like to do any of the three opening credits. Here is a sample:

      CSI Miami

      Young and the Restless
      2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4v6GPXmkZDU

      Sunset Beach
      3) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7JAjNK8vpk

      I would like to do no 2 or 3. Hope you can help me.

      Are your trying to duplicate the text or the video effect – the effect of different people with the faded edges…there’s a lot going on in these clips, so try to narrow down exactly what it is you want.

      I would like to do no 2. The white background and the people exactly like that but I would like the end text to be different. I came upon another clip that someone made and they used AE maybe you can help me with that one and I like the way it’s done. Here is the clip

      The people can be done by first recording your subject in front of a green or blue screen. Then, import that footage and apply a keying effect to remove their background – such as color key or keylight. Once you have done that, create a new solid (ctrl+Y), then make it white or whichever color you wish. Drag that onto the bottom, then you have your people on top of white. You can then move them around on screen and keyframe them as you wish. The blur around the edges – you might be able to do this by making a mask around them, then feather the mask.
