Welcome to Xtranormal, a site that allows you to make movies. All you have to be able to do is type! You don’t even have to sign up to get started; you only have to sign up if you want to save your video.
This site is a lot of fun, but I’m going to warn you right away that it will suck you in and you’ll lose track of time. I spent an hour just setting up my movie and then another fine tuning it! I didn’t have any clue so much time had passed.
To get started, click the Try Now button. This will take you to a screen where you’ll be able to select your actors. Right now there are four styles to chose from (3 of which are free during beta) – pick your actors and you’ll be whisked away to the studio! I picked the cute little animals for my actors.
Now you’re in your movie studio and you’re ready to get started. I’d start by scrolling down the page to the Design the Scene area. This is where you’ll pick your set, what your actors look and sound like, and add the soundtrack. Click apply, and you’ll head back out to the main part of studio.
Now you’ll want to start adding dialogue. You can just type it in. Then click the + at the bottom of the dialogue block to add another. You can drag and drop animations, and expressions from the left onto the dialogue blocks to make your characters emote.
If you get stuck click the Quick Tips button and it will walk you through some helpful tips that can get you back on track. When you’re finished click action so that the characters can rehearse the scene, then when it’s loaded you can click play to watch it. If it’s perfect you can click the It’s a Wrap button to save it.
If you haven’t signed up for an account, it will ask you to do so now. It’s the only way you can save your work. But don’t worry you can sign up for a Basic account for free!
It is just that easy to make a movie! Check it out today!
