I wrote about this lesson and every step involved in this post.
Let's think about the possibilities
Tutorial: 4 frame animation technique
Using two free apps: Brushes App and Ezgif.com on the iPad.
- The original image (trigger)
- The animation (overlay)
So, Matilda was already printed out as a coaster (actually a tile that I use as a coaster) via ouronline art gallery on Artsonia. Artsonia has a gift store full of products that could feature her. She could be on a T-Shirt, Mug, tote bag, bookmark, keychain, etc. Which ever item Matilda appears on, if her colors and cropping match the original trigger, will come to life with augmented reality using HP Reveal app.
So, I went overboard and set up augmented reality everywhere...
View my Coffee is Romantic Painting, Matilda coaster, Anita Tuneup Robot, Polyphonic Robot all come to life in the movie below. All of these pieces including my Robot Mug and Kissing Coaster were animated in the way described above.
AR with Do Ink Animation App
I began experimenting with other ways of animating as I played with augmented reality. This coaster has my students' running aliens crossing behind a drawing of my husband.
I isolated the figure in the digital version of the art so that I could layer the animation behind it using the Do Ink animation app.
