Making a Pivot file to a gif
First, save you’re pivot file to a gif file. A gif file is a moving picture file. Doing this will enable you to put it on Movie Maker. To do this, when you save you’re animation click the dropdown box and select gif. The tutorial to saving as a gif is located here.
The following below is for Windows Users. Don’t go down if you have windows, Instead, go to An Alternative Way Section.
Putting on Windows Movie Make and Using Movie Maker
Movie Maker is very simple to use. Here’s a screen shot of it to familerize yourself. Open up Windows Movie Maker (we’ll call it WMM for short) and start looking around the screen to familerize yourself again. To begin, find your gif by clicking on the left hand on what’s called “Movie Tasks” and click “Import Pictures”. Remember were you saved your gif, find it and import it. It will be added to the “Collections” and highlighted.
Drag your gif to the bottom where it says Drag Media to the storyboard/Timeline to begin Making your movie. I would leave it at the timeling setting because you have more control and professionalism added to your movie, click the button near the timeline/storyboard to do it.
You can add music, sounds, titles, transitions, and effects to your movie. Click on the any of the buttons on “Edit Movie” in the task bar to add titles, transitions, and effects. AutoMovie makes a random stupid thing, ignore it unless you want something random. To add music/sound do just like you did to import the gif except click “Import Audio or Music”. Drag it to the timeline where you put your sounds/music, you can’t put two at the same time, you can only “merge” two clips by moving one clip onto another (sliding it on the other clip). To put two clips you have to make to save it as a movie, then Import the movie and add more sounds (you’ll learn latter).
4. With more practice and curiosity, you will get better and better with WMM.
