Hi, I'm wondering if this can be done in videoscribe. Can I add content to a static graphic? For example, could I add Christmas lights to an existing house image? In other words I don't want videoscribe to render the house, only the lights I add. I can't figure out how that is done or even if it possible - extensive web searching/etc has come up blank, it looks like VS can only render images and not add to a prexisting static image. Please correct me if I'm wrong and if you have a video or something I'd love to see that.
Thanks - Jim Wagnerfirstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Mike. That's not exactly what I want to do but evidently what I want to do isn't supported in VS...
Question - do you use an external video editor for VS? that's the only way so far I've been able to come close to what I'm trying to accomplish.
And I see that they don't support MP4 - any idea why?
Also I can't figure out how to stop all that panning and zooming - selecting items and clicking the Camera icon is not working, it's still zooming...
Anyway thanks again for your help.

Thanks a million for all your help Mike. What I want to do simply is not directly supported in VS - even the "static" image is drawn when all options are set to 0 - there's a very brief "blink" before it appears. I can fix that in a video editor but I was hoping I could do that directly in VS.
But thanks again, you've been very helpful. I'll check out the Camera Setting tips.
Thanks again Mike, this works nicely.
Someone else sent along an example of panning to an image drawn offscreen but I absolutely can't replicate. How do you pan around the screen? For example, with two small images how would I pan to the first image and draw it, then pan over to the second image and draw that?
And finally how do you control the amount of "automatic zoom" applied at the end of the video?
Thanks for all your help!
Mike Metcalf has been giving you good advice. For your questions about panning and zooming, you will find the answers covered really well in the tutorials:
Well worth the time!
Hi Mike, well thanks again, I'm figuring this out and your advice has been very helpful indeed, much appreciated.
