There are many good things to be said about modern technology; it’s made your morning cup of coffee as easy as pushing a button and it gives you the opportunity to watch videos of robots playing violin without needing to pay for a movie ticket. Even so, there’s something to be said for the more primitive side of technology. Leave 3D for the cinema and pay R193.07 to turn your videos into a flipbook.

Offering a modern twist to the olden-day era of filmmaking, flipbooks are one of the most interesting ways to display your videos, short of high-jacking the projector at a movie theatre and subjecting movie-goers to clips of your last beach holiday. No matter what the occasion – whether it’s your daughter’s first steps or your friend playing guitar with marshmallows attached to his fingers – the most unique way to keep it fresh in your memory is with a flipbook.

What you need to know:

  • Choose a fragment of video where you can clearly see the motion of the subject
  • The subject matter should be centred in the frame so that it is clearly visible in the final flip book
  • Ensure that the video is at least 640 x 480 pixels; ideally in landscape mode
  • Ideal video clip length should be between five and fifteen seconds. Longer clips can be used, but the time interval between each page will be longer
  • You can use www.clipconverter.cc to convert YouTube clips for your flip books. Please ensure you have permission from the video owner to avoid any copyright infringement
  • Supported video formats: mov, avi, mp4, wmv, 3gp, and flv
  • Some video formats may lose a fraction from the top and/or bottom of the images in the final flip book.

While you could probably pay one of your technologically gifted friends to convert your home-videos into 3D glory and splatter them all over the internet, the flipbooks allow you to spice your modern memories with a hint of retro: almost like wrapping them around a slinky, but more practical.
