I created my animation using PowToon, which is a plug in for Google Drive that lets you create
animations and video’s. I got the .edu version which gives you more functionality.
I chose a blank template so that I could create my animation how I wanted it.
I added an image to the first screen by clicking the image button and uploading one I had already
saved. I chose a handwriting text effect and background colour for the frame using the tools at
the side of the screen and simply dragging in the elements I wanted.
I created all of my frames using the tools on the right and I chose a variety of animations,
backgrounds and text effects, adding in props and markers to keep the animation interesting.
When I had created all my frames I adjusted all my timings by opening each frame on the stage
and then selecting the individual elements and using the slider to change the timings and swap
When I had finished I exported my animation to YouTube. I then used an online downloader to
save the video from YouTube to my area for inclusion in my Multimedia Product
