New Animation Workshops in New Zealand

If you are a teacher in the New Zealand area do not miss the opportunity to join one of the iPad Animation workshops by Craig Lauridsen. Craig has been teaching stop motion for 10 years. He has overseen hundreds of stop motion animations made by children age 8 to 16 years.

The iPad Animation workshop focus on:

  • Digital technologies - breaking big tasks into smaller tasks and applying appropriate digital tools
  • Storytelling - helping children to tell their stories using stop motion animation
  • Technology - turning the iPad into a creative studio
  • 100% hands on creativity - not web surfing.

The dates for May and June are now available for booking on the website - don't miss the Early Bird Pricing.

mimoLive 2.3b3: Improvements to Virtual Playout, usablility, screen playout,Twitter layer and more

mimoLive 2.3b3 contains so much new stuff, that, back in the olden days, it would have been a great major update all by itself!

Here's what's new since 2.3b2 last week:

  • The Virtual Playout plugins now work with Google Hangout in Safari and QuickTime Player Movie Recording as well. Please update the plugins by downloading und running the installer again:
  • The settings popovers for recording, streaming, playout and full screen playout can be detached and placed persistently anywhere. This is not just very handy for monitoring the streaming status.
  • Added the option to mirror the fullscreen output. This is very helpful if you use the fullscreen playout for a confidence monitor. Actors in front of a greenscreen can now move more intuitively.
  • Photos that appear in the Twitter layer can now be limited in height.

Also, this release fixes a lot of crashing bugs.

mimoLive 2.3 shapes up to be a great release with these things already added before 2.3b3:

  • Virtual Playout! Use mimoLive in Skpye or Google Hangout as a camera source!
  • Import FMLE-Configuration files provided by most streaming services.
  • Twitter layer will display associated images. Also gave it a face lift and made the "boradcast layout" suggested by Twitter the default.
  • Added a Subtitle layer that is able to playback .srt or .sbv formatted subtitle files. (Default content is "Pledge of Allegiance" for school morning announcements)
