    "How I Met Your Mother" Intro in Avid 5.5



    I'm wondering if anyone could give me some direction in how to achieve a "How I Met your Mother" esque sequence with pictures in Avid 5.5


    Attached is a link to a YouTube version of the intro for an example. 


    Thank You for the help!

    I would say ... the Intro was made with After-Effects.


    3D-Layers and 3D Camera movement is quite easy with AE.

    I don't know how to make this with Media Composer ... but if it's possible, it would be veray interesting.

    I think you could do this with Avid Fx but unfortunately I am not an Avid FX expert so could not explain exactly how.  You owuld have to take each photograph and cut out the different layers, then move them in 3D space and move the camera.

    Avid FX and Boris Red are about the same.  There may be some Boris tutorials along those lines on their site.

    If you're looking for AvidFX help, I suggest contacting Douglas.

    There is link on his profile to his webpage. Hope that helps!

    Here's a link to my blog and tutorial on the "Kid Stays in the Picture Effect" and how to do it with Boris Red (Avid FX is the same and free with MC).



    Please note, this is the basics, to work your way up to HIMYM open, you'll need lot's of practice.
