On my eternal mission for freebies and with a rock-solid determination to never pay for any techie toys, I’ve just found this article – about the animation potential of Powerpoint, which I think is worth a try. The (much lusted after) Videoscribe website continually stresses that there is absolutely no need to draw anything, which I think must be its strongest selling point because most people are either incapable or terribly ashamed of their drawing abilities. However, I can draw and quite fancy doing further battle with Powerpoint in the hopes of producing something broadly comparable to a poor person’s Videoscribe. I suspect I could be heading for disappointment; Powerpoint certainly has the potential and capability for this, but it can be a shockingly slow and painful process at times.
collaborate wiki, Bradford College – think this probably covers everything I might have found to put in my Techie Toybox…
VIDEOSCRIBE Would cheerfully sell my soul for this, but is my soul worth £120 per year?! Possibly not :-S Need to keep checking this site for offers – would love a freebie but think we’ve all missed out of that one.
I’m quite tempted to go for the 7-day free trial – probably enough time to fall in love with it but not master it, BUT you do get a free book about the software which might be worth snaffling?
