Zoom in: allowed for footage to be seen close this washelpful when working with short clips. Rolling edit tool: able to add on footage after having cut it.This saved time from having to extract the clip again fromthe long video files. Video transitions: this effect made the transition run moresmoothly. Video effects: these effects allowed me to make clipsbrighter, appear sharper whilst also having effects like black 3. Adobe Photoshop CS5This program was mainly used to produce the ancillariesTools used: Lasso (magnetic and polygonal)- enabled me to cut aroundimages or select particular parts of the image which I wantedto work on.
