If you are an aspiring movie director but you don’t have a dime to start your projects or even buy a camera, there’s still hope for you. You can use some online video apps to work on your own YouTube videos and start creating a reputation. There are only a few things you’ll need to begin designing your masterpieces: an Internet connection, a collection of images and audios, your imagination and one of the three fantastic apps I’m introducing you.
This is a very impressive video app that will let you create videos from images, videos, music and text. In only a few seconds you’ll be able to come up with an astonishing video combining pictures from your PC or from Facebook, Picasa or Flickr, songs from your local library or from the service itself and even transitions and titles. Once you’re done with the process, you can publish your final work to YouTube. Keep in mind that you won’t need to create an account but your free videos will be limited to a 60 seconds duration. Want more? Pay for it! (Don’t worry, the prices are very accessible).
If you’re more an animated type of guy and do you want to start your own cartoon franchise, then GoAnimate is the video app for you. With this online editing software, you’ll be able to create your own cartoonish characters and animate them in various funny ways. You can use some of the predefined templates or you can start fresh by defining each aspect of your main protagonists. After that, you’ll have to select sceneries, type in dialogs, choose voices, compose various frames and see it all come all alive right in front of your eyes! With several effects, transitions, cameras and a lot of settings, GoAnimate will bring the animation director inside of you.
Xtranormal Movie Maker is a similar alternative to that offered by GoAnimate, although is a little bit more limited. You’ll have the opportunity to select sceneries, voices, characters, cameras and effects from an interesting variety but you won’t be able to customize them as thoroughly as you can with GoAnimate. Additionally, you’ll need to create an account (or use your Open ID, Faceboo, WordPress or other options). However, is an entertaining app that will help you in creating your own YouTube videos.
As you can see, you don’t need a camera to get those video ideas out of your head. So, select the app that suits you the most and start giving life to the characters you’ve always dreamed of.
