For our film, we are going to try using greenscreen, claymation, and making things appear to be flying. We are also going to try explosion in a way. Fair warning to others, clay is hard to work with sometimes and can be messed up easily. Another thing is that the colors will mix if you are not careful. I wish you all the best of luck!
The editor on the i pads aren't as good as the one I was introduced to (Wevideo). You could upload music and everything! It's amazing! There is some things that I need to figure out on this site.
I mean't are on that last sentence.
1. Do not stop filming in the middle of a scene and clean up because then you will have to perfectly recreate the scene you ended on.
2. Put wire in your clay figures so they stand.
3. Work together as a team!
4. The editing app on the iPad doesn't work as well as the one on the computer.
5. If you are using Lego people, it is best to have a floor specifically made for Lego people because other wise they fall over.
For the first half hour all my group did was discuss what was happening with our video. Then we got to editing on WeVideo. My last time editing a video was in PLTW on Movie Maker. That was different.
Leave editing to the people who know technology VERY well.
I think the main thing we learned was that to download from the camera roll we needed the adapters and desktops. We then uploaded the files to WeVideo and continued editing.
WeVideo doesn't allow frame cropping when the entire video was uploaded, but you can crop the whole video eliminating the frames you didn't want, then add another video file and crop that to continue where you left off. You can add and shorten each clip as many times as you need. If that makes sense. I can show you tomorrow.
We learned that Do Ink Green screen is tricky in WeVideo, but it's adjustable.
I liked watching you explore the features of WeVideo and get creative with the videos.
I learned that its easier to take the picture right the first time, instead of going back and trying to crop or edit it.
We had no problems
MAKE SURE THERE'S NOTHING YOU DON'T WANT IN THE FRAME!!!!!!!! That will probably be the death of my group. Don't rush. Check if all of the characters look the way you want them to be. Don't get confused by the onion skin. It's really difficult to edit things in and out.
We had a hard time looking for good music, but other than that we had no difficulties.
Well, One obvious thing is that you should always make sure that everything is out of the picture BEFORE you take it. It will literally KILL YOU if you find out that your hand was in there.
Once we finished the video we put the video into the computer all we did was add a title and music. I don't really have pointers but its hard to make things fly or bounce.
