Theory into Practice: Real Life Elements Projects

The new range of digital video cameras has made the process of capturing and using frames from

your home movies easier than ever. As the data is actually stored in a digital format there is no

longer the need to buy expensive capture cards when you want to feature a few moments from your

latest cinematic efforts. Elements 4.0 is particularly well suited to this task as you can not only grab

the ‘Frame From Video’ (Editor: File > Import > Frame From Video) but you can also compile the

captured still moments in a self-contained slide show created using the Slide Show feature (Browser:

File > Create > Slide Show).
