Type “editor.animatron.com” in your browser window.
Select a Background from our Market or use one from your computer or Google and import it into Animatron, using the Import button in top-right corner of the Editor.
Select animated characters or static shapes and simply drag-and-drop them onto the Canvas. I used Shapes/Halloween and Character folder.
To animate your postcard, you will need to move your objects on the Canvas. For example: I made the bat smaller at first, then at 4 seconds, made it grow larger.
right-clicked on timeline and I made action reverse
Select time when you want the text to appear on your card. Type in your text and animate it (resize or move and rotate if you want to) I just Selected Text effect, so text will appear letter by letter with whoosh.
Second line will just “appear” – I changed text opacity from 0 to 100%
Import Sound effects (I found some in the Market and imported some from free online sources) Here is a 2minute tutorial on how to work with audio files – move and shorten the Timebands.
Publish your project and share the link with us/friends/colleagues from editor, or go to your own profile page.
