With the Claymation Studio 2.0 from Honestech, you can use your own digital camera, webcam or DV camcorder and capture images. Then, using this program you can add background images, audio, and music to create your own stop-motion movies. The program is easy and fast to download, and since it was my first time ever trying software of this kind, it took me some playing around to get the jist of the features. Yet I have to admit, it is so much fun!
Check out this video on how it works:
I see now that this program has so much potential than I initially thought. Instead of watching movies, anyone in the entire family can make them. Really there is so much to learn and create with this program! I have only touched the surface of the Claymation Studio 2.0, but for the first time I have a true interest in
creating my own movies!
Since I have grown to really like vlogging, I have taken quite an interest in the Easy Video Editor 3.0 from Honestech. It’s been pretty simple to use so far consdiering I haven’t attempted video editing before, and just admired others’ from afar. I was really happy that this video editing software was designed for beginners, and I’d have to agree. To use, you simply cut and merge clips, add intro and ending credits and can choose from a good selection of transitions and special effects. At first I was hoping to just do some basic editing with this program, but I am proud to say that it’s looking a lot better than I ever thought possible. This is perfect for the beginner!
I also got the Honestech FOTOBOX Plus, which is a no-software needed Fotobox that simply plugs into the USB port on your PC, enabling you to make slideshows. Just insert your SD memory card into the box and you can have slideshows on your computer without the need to download. There is a simple mode and an advanced mode, depending on preference, experience and desired slideshow. You have the option of adding music, effects, voice over, and edit those pictures for the slideshow as well. You can even upload these slideshow to iPod, Facebook or You Tube. It’s a lot more cost effective than purchasing photo DVD’s and so much easier to use than the way I used to transfer! Not to mention the space it saves on your hard drive by not having to download any software.
