Making a video clip?

Postby macaroonie » Mon, 29 Mar 2010 10:04 am

Ok i have got to be one of the most un-tech savvy people around. I am hoping to make a short video clip, sound, movement, images of maps that move and show the changes of eg landlord formation over time etc I have the still images and i know what i want to say for each image, but how to i get a continuous video clip going? It's something like powerpoint but much more advanced. And i can't use the youtube technology as it's blocked at work.

Thanks for any advice.

With a bit of experimenting you could do it by using a freeware programs like CamStudio (http://camstudio.org/) I have used it (before I bought SnapIT) and it works fine, with it you can record what is on your computer screen (or a selected part) and talk in the mic at the same time recording a movie. This could be the simplest route for you.

(Note: you didn't mention what OS you are running on, on a Mac you don't need to download anything as there is something similar installed already).

If you are using Win XP or Vista, you should have Windows Movie Maker bundled in as an included software.

You can drag onto this both still images and animated gifs, and by fiddling with the actual length of the image's icon within the timeline you can adjust how long each image is displayed.

You can also drag onto the timeline an audio track, then save the entire presentation as a single file.

Have a play with it.. It should be fairly intuitive.
