This week I've been trying to figure out how to get a professional looking video of my work in progresses. I'm aware that if I had a mac that there is a good movie making program, but I don't own a mac yet. Until then I've been researching. I've barely begun to scratch the surface, but most on-line programs are a little pricey. I made the above video through animoto. I paid for the smaller package which was $30 a year. They are very professional looking but unless you dish out $250 a year you have a lot branding showing up. They do offer $39.99 a month, but I was worried that it could be a nightmare canceling after 1 month. I may have to try it and see how it goes. The most expensive package offers no branding and access to all their templates and music.
Above is another version of the same video. I don't like that you can't change the speed at which the pics are on the screen, at least not that I have found. Since I wasn't thrilled with the branding or the speed I tried other alternatives. Through the you tube page they have links to several services, but without paying for another program I couldn't find any free options. Does anyone know of any?
I did find a royalty free music site. It's a library of music that can be used, there is no charge they do have a donation box if you choose to do so. It's a lot of classical and instrumental, which I think is perfect for artistic needs. The site is called Musopen
Trying to get my blog posted today I ran into several problems trying to get my animoto video to post. I never could get it to upload to you tube. I finally got it on my blog after multiple attempts. I did get my video to post to facebook with minimal problems. There has to be an easier way!
I would love to hear your input. Help, please:))
