Contents Tool Factory Workshop - Spanish Upgrade Insert Your Own Video
Grade: K-12
Required products: Tool Factory Database V2
Instructions
Many digital cameras also record short video clips. Try recording video clips of science experiments, weather conditions, or even interviews with athletes. Transfer the videos to the computer, and insert them into projects. Be aware your own videos are NOT going to be in the bank. The bank contains clip art that shipped with Tool Factory Workshop. To insert one of your own videos into a project, use the little plus + inside the movie field and browse.

INSERTING A VIDEO FROM YOUR DRIVE
1) Click the little plus + inside the video field.
2) Browse the computer’s drive and locate your video.
3) Click on the video name.
4) Click "Open". The video will insert into the movie field.

If you can’t find any video files, you probably clicked the plus + inside a picture field by mistake.

The video won’t play until the user is in “Browse Records” mode. Click the step 4-BROWSE RECORDS icon and play the sound. Return to step 3-ENTER DATA, and build more records.
