Animoto Rocks!

January 2, 2009

Tis the season for taking lots of photo and video, while also feeling guilty that you didn’t get time for Christmas Cards (have told everyone we’re doing Chinese New Year cards instead – damn, need to get those out!) and having made the resolution to communicate better with the overseas whanau (family) – yet again!

Welcome Animoto! While friends have told me about this awesome tool, I only got a chance to play with it yesterday. And when I say play, it took me 10 mins to get together the Dec video below:

Ten years ago it would’ve cost thousands to get a video production house to create the graphics Animoto’s software reels off in 5 minutes of rendering – today, it’s free if you want a video of 30 seconds of less. The continued disintermediation power of the Internet is a thing to behold – that and the amazed look of my wife’s face when I showed her a Halloween one I knocked out in 10 minutes. Just laughingly staggering stuff… 🙂
