As I’ve mentioned, I read H. G Wells’ The War of the Worlds for my book. I decided to do the Animated Gif Book cover after loving doing the basic new book cover during our design unit. Here is the original, and the blog post:
So, I knew going into this I wanted to keep it close to my original design since I was really proud of it. Just a gif this time. Let me tell you, this was NOT easy. I booked a DKC appointment with Jenn and she was extremely lovely and helpful! I would go into how I did it, but to be quite honest with you, I just wrote down basically incoherent directions as she explained it, and it barely makes sense to me so I doubt it would make sense to any of you. But for your amusement, I’ll insert a screenshot of the directions.
I literally wanted to jump for joy when I was done. To many of you talented people out there, this probably was super easy but I am technologically impared and suck at everything, so the fact that I did this basically on my own, with only my incoherent notes from the tutoring session is INSANELY impressive. It looked pretty great, too, if I do say so myself.
I quite honestly am in awe that not only did I just learn iMovie was even on my laptop like a week ago, but now I can make a gif on Final Cut Pro. Crazy.
Thank you SO SO much, Jenn, for helping me. I literally could not have done this without you. You’re truly an angel.
