A collection of cool tools we have come across that are excellent resources to use for showcasing, creativity, collaboration and archiving!


Xtranormal is a simplistic but versatile moviemaking system that runs entirely in a browser.

Text-to-Movie (TTM) gives you a choice of a dozen “showpaks,” which consist of a setting and your choice of one or two “actors” (in this case animated avatars).

All you do is write a script, then drag various “action icons” into the script for things like camera angles, facial expressions, gestures, and animations. TTM is really, really fun, and the results can be pretty spectacular (as long as you don’t mind monotone, computerized voices reading your dialogue). Definitely worth a look.

Video Editing
Virtual Dub is a video capture/processing utility for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms (98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/7). It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video. It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters. VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images. [Download]
