Well, it’s the last day of these couple of weeks, and I am thoroughly exhausted. Working with video is tough work. But you know what makes it fairly simple for the most part if you know how to actually get the video to post?
I watch Vine compilations all the time, but I’ve never gotten the app myself. There are a lot of people who are really creative and know what to do in just 6 seconds. I am not one of those people. But I tried anyway!
For the Moving Object assignment (4 stars), we had to make a vine of something moving. It’s pretty much your standard stop-motion, except you’re using tiny little video clips, instead of pictures. It’s actually pretty fun, and simpler than I thought it would be. I decided to go with a moving smiley face, because it seems like a lot of other people have done moving or spinning things. I mean, technically my object(s) are still moving, just in a stranger way.
This is really simple. Just download Vine (it’s free). Sign up for an account if you don’t have one (also really simple)
and press the camera button in the top right. From here, you just have to touch the screen (the length of your clip depends on how long you hold it, so for my short little clips I would just very quickly tap the screen). Once you’ve recorded 6 seconds of footage, it’ll take you to a screen asking if you want to edit it or add a caption.
If you hit next, it’ll take you to a screen that I don’t fully understand, asking you where you want to post your Vine.
I think you have to choose a category for it to go in, or else it won’t post, but I don’t know. I just clicked things and hoped for the best.
