Happy to say that my company, SD Technologies, rolled out yesterday our new easy-to-use animation software called PHLIPITS (i.e., Flip-Its).

PHLIPITS allows anyone to take a short video and turn it into a short animation. It provides functionality and options to allow for a wide variety of animating. It can also serve as a start-from-scratch, blank-age animation software.


The PHLIPITS tutorial is as direct and understandable as any I have ever viewed (and, yes, that is me doing the voice-over).

Videos run from one to ten seconds at ten frames per second (100 frames total). In editing, this can be extended to 200 frames, if so desired.

Imagine this as Instagram meets Vine/Vimeo.

The Phlipits website serves as the repository for your video creations. You create an account, hash tag your work, and share PHLIPITS on a variety of other social media sites.

Our aim, though, is to establish PHLIPITS as a destination site, a social media portal, and, before too long, commence a series of themed PHLIPITS challenges.

This is the URL for PHLIPITS: www.phlipits.com

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have about PHLIPITS.

Thanks and Enjoy PHLIPITS,


P.S. Various science teachers have remarked that PHLIPITS can be used easily to demonstrate procedural and sequential events such as the water cycle, the alimentary system, tectonic movements, mathematics, you-name-it.
