On Wednesday, I will assign the main rotoscope assignment. But before I do, I have to go over a short tutorial with you on how to download and save clips in FLV. Most clips you download from youtube will be in .MP4 format using clipconverter. However, in flash, you can only import .FLV formatted videos. So we will go over how to download, then convert from Youtube, to .MP4 using clipconverter, then .FLV using Adobe’s media converter software.
Step 1: Use this flamingo commercial from Telus,
Step 2: Copy and paste the URL into clipconverter or keepvid:
Step 3: Once you have downloaded the .MP4, convert it to .FLV using Adobe Media Converter.
Step 4: Import the .FLV into your flash.
Next class, I will assign the main rotoscope assignment.
