714 BYOD: DIY Motion Graphic Animation Using Camtasia
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, March 28
Motion graphic animation is a great way to compress information into a compelling encapsulated video. You could pay an agency to create it for you, but if you don’t have a big budget—or ANY budget—you’ll probably have to do it yourself. Where do you start? Do you need to learn complicated software? And what happens if you, like most people, aren’t blessed with “design sense”?
Good news: You can create some pretty nifty animations in as little as an hour, with no experience or design sense required! And nobody will even know you didn’t use expensive software—or an agency—to create them. In this session, you’ll learn how to use Camtasia’s animation tools to make attention-grabbing animations. You’ll walk through the entire process from storyboard to finished product, exploring different scriptwriting styles and how to select the right music to capture the mood of your animation. You will even learn how you can turn the animations into standalone course content.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to use Camtasia’s animation features
- How to choose the mood for your animation
- How to storyboard your idea
- How to write a good script
- How to choose the right music
Novice to intermediate designers and developers.
