Which clips make the best flip books?

Selecting the right video clip is key to producing a great flip book. Ensure that the video is at least 640 x 480 pixels and ideally in landscape mode. If you are using your iphone video clip, copy the video to your computer. Emailing clips from iphones compress the video and reduces the resolution quality.

Choose a fragment where you can clearly see the motion of the subject. The subject matter should be centered in the frame so that it is clearly visible in the final flip book. The ideal clip length should be between 5 to 15 seconds. You can upload a longer clip (up to 100MB) and then select the fragment to use. Selecting longer clips may take some time to upload. You can reduce the length by using a free video editing tool such as Microsoft Live Movie Maker.

Video clips in portrait mode will need to be rotated before uploading or your flip book will be viewable at 90 degress.

Due to the printing and cutting process some video formats may loose a fraction from the top and/or bottom of the images in the final flip book.
