12. Photos

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>You may think that iMovies primary purpose in life is working with video, but the truth is, its quite handy with photos and graphics, too. For example, you can add images to your movie from iPhoto, Aperture, or your hard drive to use as still shots, which you can then pan and zoom for an authentic, documentary-style effect. You can also use images and graphics to create slideshows. And you can turn individual frames of your movie <em>into</em> still images for use as freeze-frames. This chapter tells all.</p><p>You may want to import a photos or graphics into iMovie for any number of reasons. For example:</p><p>You can use a graphic, digital photo, or other still image as a backdrop for movie credit rolls (Chapter10). A still image behind your text is less distracting than moving footage.</p><p>You can use a graphics file for your credits themselves <em>instead</em> of using iMovies titling feature. As noted in Chapter10, iMovies titling effect offers a number of powerful features, but it also has a number of limitations. For example, you have only rudimentary control over the titles placement in the frame (see Figure12-1).</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615682-imovie-the-missing-manual-2014-release-covers-imovie-10-0-for-mac-and-2-0-for-ios">See more</a>

CHAPTER ELEVEN: TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

Slice ePub December 14, 2013
<p>Injury to the brain is an obvious but still underemphasized source of neurobehavioral disability Although incidence and prevalence figures for <em>traumatic brain injury</em> (TBI) are not known with certainty, it is estimated that, in the United States, approximately 1.5 million new cases occur each year (Arciniegas et al. 2005). Of these, some 235,000 require admission to a hospital (Arciniegas et al. 2005), and these patients are of course more easily recognized because of their more severe injuries. Many more TBI victims have so-called mild TBI, which does not require hospital admission but still may produce major clinical problems, often for protracted periods. Motor vehicle accidents, often involving unrestrained or unhelmeted drivers and alcohol abuse; assaults; falls; and sports injuries account for most TBI in civilian populations, and young men aged 15-24 constitute the highest risk group (Arciniegas et al. 2005). Another peak of incidence occurs in people over 65, who are more vulnerable to the increasingly recognized problem of falls (Arciniegas et al. 2005). Wartime injuries may of course also contribute to a heavy burden of TBI—both in the context of active duty and later on in civilian life—as the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan make tragically obvious. Penetrating TBI is well-known to occur from projectile wounds, but the Iraq and Afghanistan wars have brought to light a newly recognized form of TBI known as blast injury (Ling et al. 2009). Overall, TBI ranks as one of the most prevalent neurologic disorders, with an estimated 3.2-5.3 million Americans living with disability subsequent to TBI (Arciniegas et al. 2005; Corrigan, Selassie, and Orman 2010).</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/363222-neurobehavioral-anatomy">See more</a>
