What Does It Really Mean to Be College and Work Ready?

What Does It Really Mean to Be College and Work Ready? | Tossed Salad | Scoop.it

A new report by the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE). Research shows that the instructors in many of our community colleges expect very little from their first-year students—and a large fraction of those entering these institutions cannot meet even those low standards.

Animate Your Comics and Illustrations Easily with MotionArtist

Robin Good's curator insight, March 8, 2013 8:06 PM



MotionArtist is a downloadable software for both Macs and Windows PCs which provides powerful animation capabilities to the non-expert animator, illustrator or comics designer.


With MotionArtists it is possible to capture, edit and animate existing comics and illustrations and to export the final product to most major video formats (including 1080p HD) or to HTML 5.


"MotionArtist, launched Tuesday, allows users to add movement to existing comics or create entirely new and diverse projects.


...MotionArtist was designing the simplest process for people who might not have a background in cartoons, but want to dive right in."


"Really what we've tried to do is create an animation tool for non-animators."


"In the program, users can create panels of any shape and then drop in layered images (like a Photoshop file). Then, using an intuitive point-to-point system, they can set the elements on paths and move them around within the panel.


...


Motion comics have grown in popularity in recent years, with popular comic book titles like X-Men making the jump to Netflix or YouTube, where they can be watched instead of read."
