I’m at a Clay Animation training session sponsored by my employer. I’ve done stop motion animation before, but not with Frames. I’m really liking Frames. My previous animations have all been compiled in iMovie or (against my will) MovieMaker. Those programs work, and are often pre-installed on computers, but Frames was designed specifically for stop-motion […]

As in “Watch out for that DOOR!” Yes, I’m still playing with Frames. And my students start using it this week.
This presentation by Melinda Kolk is showcasing software by Tech4Learning. This isn’t the first time I’ve met up with someone from that company. They have more than one product, the first they’re showing is a program called Frames that can be used to make animations out of still images. iMovie has the same functionality, but […]
