To some, this may be another time waster but not for me. I had this itch to scratch, which was to learn more about iMovie while creating something pretty. The process included converting an animated gif to video, selecting the music, adding the audio, applying transitions, fade-ins, fade-outs, and many other experiments. Unfortunately, iMovie is limited in its editing features, and I had to upload to Vimeo in order to have a choice on the thumbnail/poster image and then download. I need to learn Adobe Premiere Pro ASAP.
It might be a time waster for you but was an exercise for me. I hope you weren’t expecting something profound and beautifully designed. I had this itch to scratch, which was to film this crazy gizmo. Never mind that I have never used my Canon Rebel T2i for video before. Instead I skipped that basic step of using the usual EF-S 18-55mm IS II lens and went straight for the fancy macro lens. But dadburnit! Nature and the neighborhood were not cooperating. With a lawn mower, air conditioning unit, and snorting bulldogs as background noise, the recorded sound was not what I had envisioned for my experiment. So what you’re hearing is a scrappy soundtrack found online which replaces the original audio.
