Adding the Fill Clip to the Timeline

Adding the "Fill" Clip to the Timeline

Now that we have created our title, we need something to fill it witheither a video clip or a still image. The brighter the fill clip, the better. Good examples of fill clips are pictures or videos of a bright summer sky, the ocean, fall leaves, the golden reflection of the sun on a lake. What you want is anything that will really stand out from the background. The title itself won't be very big so when you fill it with a clip, you want "the best and the brightest" you can find to put in it. For this project, we've provided a clip that we've created using royalty-free video courtesy of Artbeats (, which we're calling clouds.avi.
