I’ve been making story books with Google Slides & LibreOffice Impress (PowerPoint alternatives) for a few years. I use these mainly for teaching, but my kids love them too. Over the last year, I seem to have maxed out the ability of these programs to help me convey these stories. Before I spend time learning a new program, I’d like to know if this is the kind of thing I can do with Blender, or if I should look for other solutions.
With these stories, I use the slides like book pages. Instead of a folded paper thing that slides or pops up, I use animations in the presentation program. For visual elements, I use vectors, gif’s, text blocks, WordArt. From what I can tell, my current stories have so many graphic elements that it is overloading the processing power of the program.
One of the important things with these “story books” is that I can make a little bit of the story come in at a time, or use a small animation to highlight the action in the story. These aren’t animated stories to become a video. Maybe augmented story books to help students learn is a better description. Is this something I can do on Blender, or should I look for something else? I’d appreciate any advice or opinions. Thank you.
I’ve linked an example below in case my description isn’t clear.
