Thank you for this free tool! It will enable us to convert the Flash Animations we’ve been working on (which are .swf files) to .mov files. This will allow us to import them easily into iMovie. The site is:
As you finish up, make sure that on your blog I’ll be able to see:
1-Your research blog post with your Animoto and bibliography (resources). Have I edited your post?
2-You Lesson 2 animation on your blog.
If you are finished, here are a few things to choose from:
>Continue working on Flash.
>Create a holiday Flash (snow snowing, lights twinkling) and add it to your blog for credit.
Sample 1 by Ashley: Click here
Sample 2 by Alex: Click here
Sample 3 by Stephany: Click here
>Create a holiday Fireworks design and put it on your blog.
>Create a blog header for me. There are three possible blog headers you could create:
1-For the tech blog: make it 760 x 190 pixels.
2- For my Language Arts class: make it 736 x 200 pixels
3- For my LMU class (I teach teachers to use technology): make it 900 x 180 pixels
Continue your hard work! We’re almost there!
As of May 15, Periods 1, 2, 3, 5 and most of 6 have uploaded their animations. Click on any period to the right and see how they did! This first project took us a good 3 weeks, but students worked really hard to understand layers, how to create a background and character, how the timeline works, and how to “tween.” Besides being required to create an animation that works, to receive 100%, students had to put their personality into their animation. Nice work! Period 4 will upload their work next week.
1) Open Lesson 2, go to Scene 2 (“Cartoon by”) and remove your last name from your project.
2) “Save As” again to your folder…call it your first name + period #, ex., Brian1 or Cathya5. (This avoids files with the same name which caused us problems in period 1.)
3) In Flash, go “Control” to “Test Movie.” This creates your .swf file. Quit Flash.
4) Open Firefox, log into your blog.
5) “Write,” tell us a little about your animation. Use Spell Check, then add Tags and a Category.
6) Click on the “Add Video” icon in Edublogs (next to “Add Image.”) Then click on “Browser Uploader.”
7) Browse for the .swf file!!!!!! Upload the file.
8 ) Erase the title and put in what you want your link to say (Click here, Here is my animation, etc.)
