Animoto converts images and video clips from your device into sophisticated looking videos- it adds video effects and transitions not available in typical software (learn more about Animoto).
With the basic Animoto Lite plan, you can create a 30 second video using 10-12 items from your library or other social media sites. This is the basic process (see also How to Make Your First Animoto):
- If you do not already have it installed, add the Animoto Video Maker app to your iPad. The first time you open it you can create an account via email or via Facebook.
- Start first by developing an idea of the topic or idea you want to express in a short video of different media. Storyboard it!
- Use your iPad camera to take all of the photos you think you might need (it is always better to take more so you have extras to choose from
- In the app, follow the link for Create a Video, follow the prompts from there.
