We were introduced do a new way to create a video, Adobe Spark. When I first used it I wasn’t used to it and didn’t understand its advantages. Our computer teacher, Mr. Casal had do a sample project on a topic we were familiar with. This was very helpful to get used and understand all the new quirks.
There were many pro’s and con’s about Adobe Spark. One of the pro’s was you could use a voice overs this provides a narrative point of view to tell the story with a voice. Another pro is you can create a graphic photo or poster and but that in your video. You also have many options to insert a photo in your video. You can choose whatever size, font, layout and theme for your Adobe Spark video. There is also a variety of music you can put in your background.
There were also a couple of cons sometimes resizing your photo was difficult. So you had to create a graphic and set the proper size. Also sometimes there was not the perfect music to fit your video. You had to experiment a lot to find the perfect fit for your video. It also was annoying switching off between your video and the graphic.
I’m really excited to use Adobe Spark to narrate my interviewee’s journey entering the U.S. Overall the pro’s my favorite part about Adobe Spark is narration in the background and the variety of options there is to create your video. My least favorite part about Adobe Spark is that you have to switch back and forth a lot between the graphic and video.
