Leaping into Digital

August means another installment of the Leaping into Digital class at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine. Designed for people who want to jump from silver based film to digital media. The class worked hard and this week I’m slowly learning how to covert those files into a flash movie using FCP and a very cool free flash player from Jeroen Wijering.

One thing that’s cool about this player is that it scales the movie up to the size of the player. Here I scaled it 2x. I know this needs work but it’s fun to deliver it as such a big movie with a custom designed interface.

Curious to know what you think about the quality vs. size.

    Hi Bob.
    I think it’s a nice format, much more portable then the mov format.
    Not great quality, but with a faster loading and easier to navigate back and forward.
    Good try
