I'm very much an amateur video maker, but I am trying to broaden my skill set a bit and start creating my own effects and short video clips to supplement the recordings I make in a more substantial way. As an example, one of the first things I'd like to do is to make a small clip that functions a little bit like Megaman boss select screen of yore; moving a selector around some pictures and scrolling in a text label to briefly explain it.
I can handle the resources that go into it to a large extent; the portraits, the actual selector graphic, the text, all no problem. However, I have no idea how to properly overlay and tie all this stuff together! I'm most familiar with AviSynth and Lightworks, and I've pored over the documentation for both the best I know how. It seems like I'm just missing out on a structure for the basic work flow. Can anyone help me out with an approach to making basic animations and movies when you have a large amount of static content to go into it?
