I have a few friends online that are absolutely obsessed with cat meme’s and macros to the point where a lot of their internet time revolves around looking for new pics. I admit, I’m a bit of a sucker for the cat marcos too, but one of them wanted me to make a video of just cat marcos with a ridiculous song playing as the background music. I told them to go ahead and go to YTMND to do it, but they’re lazy.
I had no idea where to look to get my grubby hands on something to edit/create videos or a slideshow since I don’t have anything on my computer right now to do that. So somehow during my googling I came across fliptrack.com, which according to the site it’s a tool (program really, Windows only though!) that will allow me to match images with the rhythm and lyrics of a song. Though according to the FAQ I cannot use my own music for it, due to legalities and whatnot.. But it’s understandable, as I wouldn’t want to get hit with some MPAA or RIAA bs.
I have a bunch of Caturday pictures to put up in a video, so I went ahead and downloading Fliptrack‘s [Windows] software to create the video. Things look pretty easy at first because the interface was pretty self explanatory, but I ended up coming across a bit of a road block. I was trying to add their licensed song for the Ying Yang Twins to use, but I keep getting errors when downloading the song to the program to use. So I’ve yet to make the video for it. I’m tried to submit the error report via their program, but that failed as well so I’m going to find their contact information to find out what’s the problem.
Fliptrack’s demo will show you exactly what the site is capable of. I’m not big on creating my own videos, but honestly as cheesy as this sounds I’m sure my mom won’t mind using this. She used to make VHS slide shows manually. She would play a tape (yes, tape) on the radio, and the slide show maker was basically this video camera that recorded sound and the photos you put into the slots. It was ridiculous and yet looking back at it now, it’s amazing how much technology has changed things from my childhood.
Oh, and expect the Caturday video I’m making soon as this works; It won’t be that amazing, but full of some of my favorites!
