Animoto Update!

Animoto just keeps getting better!  In the beginning, you could make a video by uploading pictures and sync them to music (see my previous post featuring CIMC curriculum). Then you could add text to your pics and now you can do it all with video!

The process is simple as always. Just get your video clips (upload clips from your camera or phone, or if you don't have any, use some from Animoto's library which is stocked with good stuff from iStockphoto and Getty Images!) and mix them liberally among your pictures and text.

You don't even need a complex video editor.  Just find the parts of your video clips that you like best. You can choose up to 10-second highlights, but they recommend using 3-5 seconds for the best flow within an Animoto video.

For each highlight, you can decide whether you want to hear your clip's audio or if you'd rather just keep playing the soundtrack instead. To pick more than one highlight from a clip, just use the duplicate feature.

It's that simple!  Have you heard of an easier way to mix pictures, text, audio, and video to create exciting high-quality videos for free?  Visit Animoto!
