ScreenFlow terms

In Point

The point marking the beginning of a portion of a clip or sequence.

What is a point in ScreenFlow?

ScreenFlow is a video editing and screen recording software for Mac. In this context, a point in ScreenFlow could refer to a specific moment or position in the timeline of the video or audio track that you are editing. This point can be marked for various purposes such as to insert a new clip, to cut the existing clip, to add transitions, effects, or to synchronize audio and video tracks.

Moreover, a point can also be a reference to a keyframe, which is a specific moment in an animation or effect. Keyframes are used to change the parameters of an effect over time, for instance, changing the position, scale, or opacity of a clip. By adjusting these points or keyframes, users can create smooth, complex animations and effects in their ScreenFlow projects.

How to set a point to 0 in ScreenFlow?

In ScreenFlow, setting a point to 0 is typically associated with adjusting the position or size of an element in your video project. To do this, you need to select the element first. Click on the element in the timeline or in the canvas to select it. Once selected, go to the video properties panel on the right side of the screen. Here, you can adjust the X and Y coordinates of the element's position, or the width and height for its size. To set a point to 0, simply click on the corresponding field and type in "0". Press enter to apply the change.

Remember that setting a point to 0 will move the element to the very edge of the canvas if you're adjusting position, or reduce its size to nothing if you're adjusting size. Make sure this is the effect you want before applying the change. If you make a mistake, you can always undo the action by pressing Command + Z on your keyboard.

What does a 0 value represent in ScreenFlow?

In ScreenFlow, a 0 value typically represents the absence or minimum level of a certain parameter or setting. For instance, if you're adjusting the volume or opacity of a clip and you set it to 0, it means the volume or opacity is completely turned off or minimized. Similarly, if you're positioning a clip on the screen and you set the X or Y coordinate to 0, it means the clip is positioned at the very edge of the screen. Essentially, a 0 value in ScreenFlow is used to denote the lowest possible setting or the starting point for a particular parameter.

How to change a point value to 0 in ScreenFlow?

To change a point value to 0 in ScreenFlow, you need to access the properties panel where you can adjust the parameters of the selected object. The properties panel is usually located on the right side of the ScreenFlow interface. It contains several tabs such as video, audio, screen recording, callout, touch callout, annotations, text, and media.

To change a point value to 0, select the object whose point value you want to change. Then, navigate to the appropriate tab in the properties panel. For instance, if you want to change the point value of a video clip, go to the video tab. Look for the parameter that corresponds to the point value you want to change. Click on the value and type in "0". Press enter to apply the change. The point value of the selected object should now be set to 0.
