Alan has had a long semester teaching ds106 and is starting to think of where he will go on vacation. Try to use Mozilla Popcorn Maker to remix the original project built around Alan's plans. You will remix the original base project to add images, video, maps, twitter info, text, URLs, and pop up text to create a new story. The original project has 8 different points where you should add new media. Make sure the things you are adding build towards a final ending of the story. In this case, you get to plan a post ds106 vacation for your instructor; there are marked places where you are able to remix in various kinds of media. Each of these is marked with a popcorn "pop up message". Look for the remix icon in the bottom right; this will launch the Popcorn Maker editing interface. The eight places to add content have an image placeholder; you can insert other media on a track above it (and you may should extend the duration of the still image clip, it will men moving things around on the timeline). If you really struggle with it, you can use your familiar video editor and the original clip as done on YouTube, but we really hope you give Popcorn a whirl.

Popcorn

The point of this assignment was to add into this video what was lacking. That included putting in pictures, maps, texts, music, etc.. I liked the creative aspects of Popcorn and I would use it if my computer and browser function well with the program. Sadly, It took my hours …

Alan Goes On Vacation Remix

This assignment was one of the most difficult I’ve done in quite a while. The Mash-up Assignment which is called “Where Should Alan Go on Vacation?” is completed using the web browser program Mozilla Popcorn. Having never used it before, there was a bit of a learning curve in …

Working With Popcorn Maker

This post is dedicated to my experience with the remix assignment using Mozilla’s Popcorn Maker. The goal in this assignment was to take a video that was pre-created and remix it, adding images, video, and audio to it. I really liked how this was set up. It was set …

Alan, you’re going on vacation to…

Oh, wow, this project was easily the hardest of the assigned. Mozilla has some excellent tools to introduce novices to the world of coding and digital creation, but the platforms can be tricky and a bit buggy depending on the computer you’re using.

While I was re-mixing Alan’s vacation on …

Sending Alan On A Vacation

Required Assignment

First off, Mozilla Popcorn is a tool that I would not recommend. After many times (and I do mean many times) of starting over from the beginning, I started to get the hang of it and was finally able to complete this damn assignment. I could have remixed …

Alan Levine is headed to Sudan

This project was one of the most challenging projects for me. I created this project 3 times on two different computers and was faced with so many challenges.

One of my first challenges was getting the video to load, I would get to the part where you added a picture …

Alan Goes on Vacation

This assignment I, surprisingly, didn’t find as difficult as it seems a lot of people did. I had a bit of fun with the spaces we were to fill in, and Popcorn Mash up maker didn’t error more than twice. I got lucky!

Basically, Alan decides he wants to go …

Popcorn Remix: Alan Levine Goes to Alaska!

The first assignment that I tackled this week was the Mash-up Assignment “Where Should Alan Go on Vacation?”.  To complete the assignment, a browser-based program called Mozilla Popcorn was necessary.

This assignment was incredibly frustrating to me on several levels.  I am somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes …

Remixing with Popcorn

In this assignment we had to remix a video and add our own aspects in it of where we thought Alan should go on vacation. I used the Popcorn Maker software in order to remix the video. This assignment was very difficult and time consuming for me, and the software …

So….Popcorn Maker is the worst. Using it for the “Where Should Alan Go On Vacation” project was one of the worst experiences I’ve had in this class thus far.

In theory, it’s a very simple program that you can use to create some pretty nifty things. As a …

Popcorn isn’t always a good thing….

Where Should Alan Go On Vacation?
…Not anywhere with popcorn, that is for certain!

When I think of popcorn, I think of a delicious snack, especially one of which is extremely tasty during a movie. Well, my thoughts of popcorn right now have gone completely downhill. Mozilla Popcorn Maker is …

How can I go on vacation when I spent so much time with Mozilla Popcorn!?

So this was probably the most frustrating assignment we’ve had to do for ds106. The concept of Mozilla Popcorn is really cool and it is pretty user friendly, the only problem is that it’s pretty buggy and I think that’s what made it so complicated for me (and apparently everyone …

POPCORN!

Ahh..

…nothing can my true enthusiasm for being done with this assignment which involved Sending Alan on a Trip.  Sorry Alan, but this was probably the most frustrating part of DS106, for the following reasons.…

There was no way to shorten durations of clips. While you could make it

Burger King!

I can honeslty say this was my least favorite thing I’ve had to do all semester because it relied entirely on an online editor that happened to break down and only work in parts the entire time I worked on it.  It was also very frustrating trying to line up …

I Really Used to Love Popcorn

But Mozilla Popcorn, doesn’t taste anything like I remember.

 

Popcorn is supposed to be light, fluffy and easy to eat.  This was heavy, clunky, and hard to digest.    It isn’t awful, just didn’t make the process any fun.  The end result is -eh. at best.

Mozilla Popcorn = Death

The title of this post really just scratches the surface of my feelings and emotions to the program, Mozilla Popcorn. We were given an assignment to Help Alan go on a Vacation. He created the video and left spaces between the clips for us to insert media.

Pop You, Popcorn!- Popcorn Mashup Assignment

If we got to punch one ds106 assignment, I would definitely punch this one.

Before starting this project this afternoon, I went on Twitter and say some of my classmates were having problems with Popcorn. I wasn’t completely sure what the issues were (did they find it difficult to use? …

Vacation of a Lifetime

For this assignment our professor decided that he was tried and needed a vacation to celebrate the end of the semester (how is it already the end of the semester?).  For this assignment we had to use Mozilla Popcorn Maker.  This is a web based video editor that allows …

I used to like popcorn…

This week, I had to remix a video using Mozilla Popcorn Maker.

This is the video I was working with.

This was not my favorite assignment…

I hated the interface for the editor. There are no clear directions on how to use it at all. The drag and …

The Sweet Escape

One tool that was suggested to us when remixing and mash-uping was Mozilla Popcorn Maker. In order to experiment with this, Alan created a video for us to remix. He left spaces open where we could add new media. Here is the video:

Yeah. I know, funny.

I was …

Where to send Alan Levine on vacation?

A difficult question when you hardly know someone. From his phtos I know he already has been to many places anyway. Maybe I should send him to a kind of inner journey, I imagined.
Sometimes when I were on vacation I just thought how nice it would be if I …
