I would use Adobe After affects and also iMovie. I would add some affects to pictures and then import it to iMovie.
2. Which applications do you think will be the least useful for creating a book trailer? Why?
I think that the least useful application for creating a book trailer is quicktime player. I think that it is useless because it is only for recording.
3. Do you already feel confident about using the application? If not how much will you need to learn?
I do not really feel confident enough, but I think I will be able to handle it by watching more tutorials.
4. Do you think it makes more sense to choose an application and then start designing, or to design your trailer first and then choose an application to make it? Explain.
