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 oldenday era of filmmaking, flipbooks are one of the most interesting ways to display your videos, short of highjacking the projector at a movie theatre and subjecting moviegoers 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 homevideos 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.
