Last year Antonio, one of my students showed me how to use the Free Video app to download a ShowMe presentation and then place it in iMovie and add to it and edit. At the time I thought this was a good idea as sometimes sites close and I might lose my ShowMe videos. I also liked that you could make it look just a little slicker in presentation. ShowMe and the Free Video app are free (Video Download iBolt Downloader and Manager), iMovie you pay for but it is well worth it.
- Make your ShowMe presentation. I found this took me awhile, as I made a number of mistakes and only saw them when I played it back.
- ShowMe emails you your presentation link when it is saved. Copy this link.
- Open the Free Video App.
- When this is open you will see something like this. Except until you download something the shelves will be blank! Notice the position of the slide to the left. You are going to slide this up to paste in your ShowMe link.
When you have the slide up it will now look like this.
Press Go on the iPad keyboard and you will then be taken to your ShowMe presentation. Which will begin to load in like this.
Until it is fully loaded.
Press the play button and it will ask you to Cache Video to Memory, press that and it will automatically begin to download.
When it has downloaded it will appear on your shelf.
The final step is just to press on the video and choose save to camera roll.
When you open up iMovie you are able to pick it up from your camera roll and insert it into your iMovie time line. You can then add a title, music, other pictures and video as you wish.
