Create Stopmotion and Timelapse Video with These Three Free Tools | Sheila's Edtech | Scoop.it

Creating stopmotion and timelapse videos can be a good way for students to tell a story that they have developed.

While good stopmotion and timelapse videos can take a long time to create, there are some tools that can make the process a little easier.

Strumento webware per la produzione di animazioni che possono essere utilizzate per la didattica. E' possibile realizzare narrazioni (storytelling) o ricostruzioni di processi. Questo servizio web 2.0 presenta il vantaggio, rispetto ad altri webware o software simili, di essere semplice da utilizzare. Il servizio è gratuiito.

E' possibile: scegliere uno scenario, aggiungere figure, oggetti, elementi vari, regolarne le dimensioni,  animare i personaggi, farli muovere nella scenza. Inoltre si possono aggiugnere suoni, effetti speciali, musica ecc.

per impsotare l'animazione si utilizza una timeline. Il lavoro viene infine salvato online.

Lino's curator insight, July 12, 2013 4:13 AM

Es una aplicación potente y muy fácil de usar que nos permite crear clips de vídeo reproduciendo una historia  con frases de texto que hayamos ideado entre dos o más personajes.

 

El video final se puede compartir directamente en Google+ o como un enlace para cualquier sitio que deseemos (por desgracia, no se muestra una vista previa o miniatura cuando se trata de compartir vídeo creado con StoryBuilder en Facebook).

 

Una gran herramienta.

 

De uso libre. (No tenemos que registrarte o iniciar sesión para acceder a ella).
