Fay is working on a popcorn based template. It would be good to get your ideas, as we are still at early stages

Subject: [Xerte] Re: Creating Animation

I'd like to bump Pat's suggestion to consider a Popcorn based solution as the most robust solution to this.  Notice how ellegantly the KettleCorn project has adapted Popcorn maker to Journalism: http://www.innovation-series.com/2013/10/24/introducing-kettlecorn-forking-popcorn-maker-for-journalists/

I’m just wondering what approaches people use for this sort of thing: we have a lecturer who wants to create animation simply. He’s currently using powerpoint to create this sort of thing: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/toolkits/play_10711

I think the results are really good, and it’s taken some time to get right. I’m interested in optimising the approach a bit, to make it fast and efficient: maybe this is the best way of doing it, maybe there are others?

What I’m interested in is what approaches / tools do people use for this sort of thing? It doesn’t have to be high end output: it could be a mixture of screen capture, whilst dragging things around and narrating the process for example. We’re not looking to turn staff into Flash developers, it’s more about simple approaches that are easy and quick to do.
