Let's get in to today's episode!

Section 1: Adding Transitions

Transitions are commonly used by video editors everywhere! They allow flexibility when moving from one clip to another, and can completely change the feel of a video. Harsh cuts between scenes can be great, but they are not always the right fit. Examples of transitions include a cross fade between two clips, and a fade to black.

Transitions can be found in Photoshop by clicking on the square icon to the right of the Timeline Control Panel. You can change the duration immediately, or wait for later. Simply drag the transition you would like down onto the Timeline between two clips. From there, you can pull the transition to be longer or shorter if you'd like.

Again, you don't always need transitions! They are just creative tools for you to utilize in whatever ways you choose.

Section 1: Adding Audio

You can turn the audio off or on by pressing the speaker icon on the control panel. However, this is only temporary and will affect the entire Timeline. If you'd like to mute the clips, right click on them and then tab over to the Audio Section (music note icon). Check 'Mute Audio.' This will need to be done for each clip. After that is finished, you will notice that the video will be silent even if you turn on the speaker icon. This is helpful because you won't have to worry about the audio that was captured in camera anymore- especially if you will be adding music.

To add additional audio to your video, go to the Audio Track at the bottom of the Timeline and click on the music note icon. Select 'Add Audio.' From there, you can locate the files you would like to use. After previewing the file to be sure it is the correct one, press Open. You can shorten the audio if you need to by clicking and dragging; this is the same technique we used for editing the video.

To fade the audio in or out, right click on the track and adjust the Fade In/Fade Out sliders.

Contextual Design and Development is the Driving Force Behind all Successful Mobile Applications

The time of ordinary custom web application design & development is long gone. Today the focus is on contextual design and development. It is the rise in the popularity of mobile applications that has provided the impetus for giving importance to ‘context’ when it comes to app or web development. Let’s focus our attention on mobile applications and why mobile applications need to be developed keeping the context in mind. Because they are used in diverse locations Let’s face it. We all love mobile apps because they can be used just about anywhere and at any given point of time. Yes, that’s right, they can be used in offices, on a train, in the kitchen, movie theatre and the list just goes on. So, the app needs to be developed in context of the location. Different users have different needs when it comes to a mobile app and these needs, in part, are determined by their location.
