Interested in sharing your original Palm Top Theater content? You're on the right page.
First of all, we would like you to know that the brains and muscle behind Palm Top Theater are indie creators and producers. We believe that cultivating the grassroots of creativity is very important, and this belief has informed every decision we've made in the design, production and release of Palm Top Theater. Palm Top Theater is your tool, and we put it in your hands to share your own originality and creativity. To this end, we have developed a free Adobe After Effects plugin to make it easier for you to create videos for the Palm Top Theater, and we give you the option of offering your video for sale. Read on for details.
How to become a Palm Top Theater content producer:
Register to become a member. Registration is free.
Produce your video or interactive app following the Palm Top Theater format. Remember, your video must be split into 3 sections, to take advantage of the mirrors that create the 3D layered effect. Here's the basic idea:
- Measurements for the 3 layers (PTT Format file)
- Plug-in for Adobe After Effects. This plug-in is available for free download and use, and makes it easy for you to edit videos that match the Palm Top Theater format. This plug-in does not support producing interactive apps. You can also simulate the 3D layered view and export your videos. Of course, if you have your own workaround, you don't need to use this plug-in. Note, this plugin doesn't support the creation of interactive apps.
