What is a custom video flick book?
A custom video flickbook (or flip book, if you prefer) is simply a short video clip sliced into 48 frames and each frame is printed on high quality paper. These are then bound into a book, allowing you to flick at your will.
How do I create a video flick book?
You will need the video you want to use saved on your computer. If it is on your camera or phone you will need to save it to your computer first. You can then browse to the desired file when using the upload module.
What size are your flickbooks?
Custom video flick books measure 100mm x 60mm. Flick books are 48 pages in length.
What file formats do you accept?
The upload module can accept pretty much any video format, including:
For video flick books: .wmv, .avi, .mov, .mpg, .mp4, .3gp, .flv
What is the maximum file size I can upload?
The maximum size for video upload is 100MB. This is a lot, and may take some time to upload. Ideally you will will want to edit your video clip on your computer or phone first. You can then trim it to the required length Windows Moviemaker can optimize files to a certain filesize. Another good free program to do this is Avidemux.
A 10 second clip at really good quality should be less than 10MB, and upload really quickly.
Can I edit my flick book online?
You can trim your uploaded video to the required length in the upload module. But you will have tighter control (and save time waiting to upload!) if you edit the video on your computer first.
What is the best video size?
The better quality the original file you upload, the better the end result will be. As a guidline, 640 x 480 pixels (deppending on the aspect ratio) is more than enough for video flick books.
