i am about to begin work on my own movie..........but i have a few questions

5 replies 19 views Edited Nov 5, 2010

first off, i want to say that i am not new to movie making or video editing; im actually quite good at both. but i am new to sound editing, sound effects, and special effects. because this is my own personal project, i want it to look as professional as possible. what i be creating is a stop-motion animated movie based off the harry potter series. but im a total noob when it comes to sound/special effects. i wanted to know where i can get or how to create sound and special effects like the ones in the videos i have listed below. fyi, i am using windows movie maker.

you gonna need a synthesizer and FL Studio 9.


Windows Movie Maker can't make sound effects. Gotta make it yourself.

thanks. umm what exactly is a synthesizer? and how can i go about making the sound effects in fl studio 9? also, does the free to try version of fl studio 9 on cnet.com include everything as the full version? (i am already spending enough $$$ alone on just the sets for this movie, so i am looking to keep all other costs minimal.)

Synthesizer is a piano styled instrument (like a keyboard) but they can make cool sound effects if you know how to use FL Studio (and i don't know if FL studio trial is same as free.)

LMMS is a free version of FL. Not the same but it isn't really expensive. I think it is called Linux Music Maker, but it works with Windows too.

So uh, no offense but you can't get a "professional" look with something edited in movie maker. Your best option for the effects you want is to use adobe After Effects. I've used it a little bit for compositing work - but It's what the creative director and compositor used for the VFX at my previous employer. 

 

and THIS site has some awesome professional video tutorials for creating VFX in it. 

 

AE may be way out of your budget, but it's the best way to go.
