Create An Animated Video Presentation With Adobe Voice

AdobeVoiceAdobe Voice is an interesting new tool for creating dynamic, engaging, and animated videos for practically any purpose. This free iOS app walks you through the process of recording audio, adding imagery, selecting a theme and publishing your video. The entire process can be done in a matter of minutes, making this one of the fastest tools I have found for creating videos, particularly if you like to use your iPad for your media projects. Getting started with the app requires an Adobe ID, but once you have this set up, the app quickly gets you started with video creation via a detailed tutorial that helps you through your first project.

The opening screen of the app shows a variety of videos as examples of what you can do with it, but it also has a button at the top of the screen to create a new story. When you tap that button, you are given nine story “structures” to choose from, including an option to make up your own. If you opt to use one of their pre-created structures, you will get additional support in creating a video for a set purpose. However, with Adobe Voice it is easy to make up your own structure as you go along. After you have selected a structure, you can immediately start recording. The app is set up so that each snippet of audio you record is a “page.” You can have a single page for your entire project or you can add multiple pages, which will likely be needed for most projects. After you record the audio for each page, you are offered the option to add an icon, image, or text to show on the screen while that audio is playing. You can search for both icons and images in the app, but also have the option to use content you find elsewhere or have created yourself. Adobe Voice also offers the ability to customize the layout of these assets so that you can get exactly the look you want for your project. You can preview each page or the entire project with the tap of a button and once you are happy with the state of your project, you can select from one of the 32 themes that are included in the app or you can customize your own theme. You can also choose from over 30 different songs that can be played over your video or you can upload a song from your own device. Once you are happy with your project, you can share it on Facebook, on Twitter, via email or messages, or save it to your device for use elsewhere. At this point, you can also add any credits or author information you would like the project to have and decide whether you would like it to be viewable by the public or only by those with the link. Adobe Voice is a very impressive app that has a lot of potential applications, particularly in libraries and other educational settings. It is well worth a try.
