Last night we put together a little stop motion video made from legos and the kids' imagination.
Tools we used:
- Canon Digital Rebel XT Camera
- Mini Tripod
- Crayons / Markers
- iPhoto '09
- iMovie '09
- and unbridled imagination
Overall, we took over 200 pictures, but ended up only using 115.
The process of using both iPhoto with iVideo (both within the iLife '09 Suite) was pretty straightforward and simple.
Basically, I imported the images into iPhoto creating a new event, then I opened iVideo and created a new project.
I set the following Project Properties (found in File -> Project Properties... ) as follows:
Then, I opened up for the photo browser, selected the images and dragged them into the iMovie project work space.
Then using the Voiceover button (shortcut key "O"), had Sher and the kids do their narrative magic.
Lastly, added some titles, transition and published the darn thing.
The result is this video, which is the kids' version of how Spongebob and Patrick first met.
The link to the video is here.
