I’m a big lover of the animated GIF having created dozens as bits of reflection on cinematic moments, film posters and comic book covers. But I’ve also really enjoyed discovering how the animated GIF became an extension of traditional photography using subtle bits of animation.
I like to badger Tom Woodward when he comments late on posts I already commented on and subscribed to.

In this article, I’m going to talk about two online tools that I have used, PowToon and Animatron, which let you easily create animated presentations and movies.
There are many free software animation tools out there, but these usually come with quite a high learning curve because of their advanced tools and feature sets.
PowToon will allow you to create up to a 5 minute movie for free that you can publish online to their website or up to YouTube.
The customize option is nice because it gives you a whole bunch of ready-made themes and templates that you start your movie with. When the main interface loads, you’ll be presented with a short tutorial on how to navigate around. You can also upload your own images, sounds, and videos in addition to the assets they have in their library. Overall, it works really well, is easy to use and doesn’t cost anything for creating short videos you might want to share with friends or family.
Another cool thing about Animatron is that everything is a vector object and can therefore be re-sized and animated without becoming grainy.
As you can see from above, the tools are all located on the left-hand side and the bottom contains the timeline, but with each object in its own layer.

Animatron also has a good library of vector images, backgrounds and objects that you can add to your canvas. Overall, these two online tools are the best way to go about quickly creating animated movies or presentations without having to put in a large amount of time. About Online Tech TipsWelcome to Online Tech Tips – A blog that provide readers with daily computer tutorials, technology news, software reviews, and personal computing tips. I have the basic storyline but am now trying to pepper it with recurring character behaviour.
Interesting and accessible academic ideas and topical commentary, all with a jaunty attitude.
This is what I believe the cinem(gram)graph needs to celebrate – this impishness, raucousness. Make sure to respect the ratio size of the power of 2 (like mentioned in the Step #2 of this tutorial). Close everything and go check if you have all the four (4) files mentionned at the end of the previous step in the correct directories.
If you want to create one of those nice cartoon-looking presentations where everything is animated, text flies across the screen, etc., then you have a couple of cool online tools that can get the job done. Both services have free versions with certain restrictions like only being able to share the presentation online and not being able to remove the watermark and outro from the final presentation. I also recommended using a ready-made template because they include multiple slides, objects, transitions, etc., so you see exactly how items are added, controlled and manipulated on the canvas. Thankfully, it’s quite similar to tools like PowerPoint, so the learning curve is low. These include text effects, image holders, characters, animations, props, backgrounds, shapes, markers, action buttons, and transitions.
You can adjust the entrance and exit effect for each object and the amount of time it remains on the canvas by clicking on the object in the timeline. You’ll also notice that a lot of stuff they have says Premium, which means you can only use it if you upgrade to their paid plans.

This means that someone viewing your movie doesn’t need to have Flash installed on their system, which is not the case for PowToon. You can even draw with freehand and it’ll allow you to instantly animate the object as a vector graphic. Historically these probably occur less often than we imagine, but since this is speculative fiction the challenge is to incorporate as many as possible. Yes it’s an amazing piece of craftsmanship, definitely a smooth Photoshopper behind this animated loop. You are a muddy puddle on the edge of a 7-11 full of god knows what liquids that have concentrated in the fetid heat. Note that if you choose to make it 256 X 256 pixels, you will not be able to put as many frames as an image 32 X 32 pixels.
If you plan on using these tools professionally, you can look into the paid options as well that remove these restrictions and give you more features.
Once you log in, click on Create at the top and choose from Start from Scratch or Customize a Ready Made PowToon. On the left are the slides, on the right is the library of objects you can add to your slides, the bottom is the timeline and the top is where you can control project settings.
Another advanced feature is the ability to add keyframes to alter the path and size of an object.
I graduated from Emory University in Atlanta, GA in 2002 with a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics.
I use them extensively and certainly would not recommend something I don’t use myself.
