1.1 Throughout the construction process I have been
looking at using different programs to widen my knowledge and
to use more advance tools. Photoshop was a program that I
haven't used before and I mainly use it for editing my digipak
photos. This was a very useful program to have as you are able to
use different functions to edit our photos on. I was able to
change the levels on photos and the hue and contrast. This was
very helpful due to the photos needed editing due to them being
very dull. Also photoshop was very helpful when creating the CD
circle template I was able to blend 2 of my photos to make the
photo more appealing and effective
1.1.1 In AS I didn't have the skills or
software at all to use
Photoshop. I have developed
my skills much more this year
due to having the resources.
Last year the photo editing
software that I used for
anything was PicMonkey. This
was a very low skilled piece of
software but now i have
gained new skills in
2.1 I used indesign was a big bulk of creating the digipak for
our group. This was the software that I used to stitch the
photos together and create our final product. This helped
me gained knowledge on placing and merging images
together which I didn't previously know how to do.
3.1 This was the platform that we decided to use to
use to present our final product on. Its a easily
accessable site that we was able to also embed
into our blogs which is very effective.
4.1 As a group we started to film using a Sony DSLR camera for
our shots however the iPhone camera allows to shoot in 4k
quality which was much higher than the Sony camera that
we was using. We also use the iPhone camera for some of
the digipak photos as again they were much more higher
quality compared to our other shots.
5 Final Cut Pro
5.1 To edit our final product we decided to use Final Cut
Pro, this had so many functions to use in comparison
to last year where we used Premiere Pro. We was able
to use new technologies such as the green screen to
merge our shots. It also had advanced functions such
as colour correction to make our shots look a lot
more sharper and professional.
5.1.1 In AS our group used Premiere
Pro to edit our final product on.
This was very basic software
which we used to stitch together
our product. This was of a very
basic and simple standard.
However I now have skills in
using the higher software Final
6.1 We were fortunate to have some of the computers upgraded in the
media room to iMacs, these had all of the Adobe Suites installed on
them. I had a lot more higher software installed onto it which allowed me
to have more opportunity to delvope my skills on different programs. I
was able to use programs such as Indesign to create mood boards ECT.
