iPad Stop Motion Video Class
Week of 11/12/2018 (grades 6 and 7)
Please bring to class earbuds or headphones.
We are going to make use of a round-about way to get audio files onto your iPads. From what I understand, you can’t just download an audio file or a video file directly to your iPad and import it into iMovie, so we’re going to use a computer in order to push the files into your iPads using iTunes. In order to do this, I’ve created editable documents you can paste the URLs for your sound into. I’ll pull the sounds down on a computer and then use iTunes to transfer the files onto your iPad.
When you click on one of the links above, be sure that you press and hold the “reload” icon in Safari’s address bar:
The following website has an extensive collection of recorded sounds that you can use:
I have an account on the site, so you can just find sounds you like and then copy the link to the sound into the appropriate document above. Here are video instructions for pasting the links into the document:
