Comic Life 1.3 Basics Video Tutorial 01: Workflow 1

Comic Life… I personally used it for the first time about two years ago. And I thought “Whoa!” It’s one of the few Mac-only applications that MacHouse recommends to other fellow Mac users. And we decided to start a new video tutorial series with Comic Life.

By the way, Comic Life is developed and distributed by plasq. It is also distributed by Mac game developer Freeverse. Moreover, it seems that plasq is currently developing a Windows version of Comic Life. Until a Windows version is available, Comic Life is a Mac-only application.

For the next several days, we will be releasing three to four video tutorials just for Comic Life. In these tutorials, we will explain basic functions of Comic Life Deluxe by working on a project from the beginning. Eventually, we will export it in HTML and QuickTime.

In this first video tutorial of the series, we first set up a document in a way that we can export it in QuickTime (4:3 ratio). We then import a photo, apply a style, change attributes of a comment balloon and on and on…

    1. In a couple of occasions, an audio comment says “… resize it horizontally, vertically or proportionally.” It should be corrected to “… resize it proportionally.”
