A Great Way to Start a Green Screen Video



After making a video with a green-screen background, just drag and drop the video on to a card in your project, and check “Transparent Color” in the Inspector.  Choose green as the transparent color and you’re all set!




A Great Way to Start a Web-Page



HyperStudio can export a stack a totally interactive web page, or a stack can be embedded in a larger web-page. Just create a stack, choose “Export as a Web-page” to your Mobile Me server, and go to the URL location of the exported stack.



A Great Way to Start a Web App



Exported HyperStudio stacks can be saved to the Home Screen on iPad, iPhone and Android devices, and then run locally without an Internet connection. Make your own “HyperStudio Apps” for your mobile devices!

A Great Way to Start a Google Earth/Maps Tour


Any Google Earth KMZ file, or even just the word “Link” from a Google Maps page, can be dragged and dropped on to any button, image, movie or text in a HyperStudio project.  When you click on that object, HyperStudio will open Google Earth/Maps to exactly that view and location.



A Great Way to Start an Interactive Game (also as an introduction to “Programming”!)



An interactive game can be as simple as a board game where you move pieces, to a multi-path adventure game, where you are an active player in the game, picking up things along the way, and experiencing different outcomes along the way depending on your actions.  As it happens, this is also an excellent introduction to the logical concepts of “programming”.  That is, a system that conditionally branches based on different inputs, and which in turn yields different results (outputs) based on the inputs and what logical structure (the program) has been set up.


HyperStudio is indeed a truly visual, object-based, programming language where the net result of having written a program can be achieved, but without the necessity for actually writing a “script” in some sort of written language.


A Great Way to Start a Stop-Frame Animation

HyperStudio makes it easy to create stop-frame animations. Draw on a card, then copy and paste the card.  Make a change, and repeat. Export as a movie and you’re done! For clay animation, use “Capture Background with Video”, make a new card, and repeat.  Again, just export as a movie and you’ve got your movie!



A Great Way to Start an Arduino Project


The Arduino is a great inexpensive interface board between any computer and an electronic project, including robotics.  You can control any part of the project with the Arduino Setup function in HyperStudio, and the Arduino Watcher triggers any, or many, button actions when it sees a particular condition of inputs.  Whether it’s a robotic device, or an electronic interactive physical storybook, HyperStudio makes it easy to create and interact with.



A Great Way to Start a Presentation



HyperStudio allows you to create presentations that are far more than just “slide shows”.  HyperStudio is also unique in that it has “paint tools” that let you do substantial image manipulation totally within the program. As you build your presentation, nearly everything can be assembled and linked just using drag and drop.





A Great Way to Start a Web-Page




HyperStudio can export a stack a totally interactive web page, or a stack can be embedded in a larger web-page. Just create a stack, choose “Export as a Web-page” to your Mobile Me server, and go to the URL location of the exported stack.

HyperStudio
  ... your ultimate digital workspace! 

HyperStudio is a great way to start a lot of different kinds of projects. That's because not only does it have an easily understood working environment (background plus buttons, text, graphics and movies), but it's extensive support of drag-and-drop as a primary method of building projects.

Add to that automatic attribution of source urls, and extensive, but simply used, options for interactivity. With complete abilities for in-program manipulation of images, sound and movies, you'll find that HyperStudio just might become your first program of choice for just about every project that you want to start.

Of course, HyperStudio can take you far beyond just the start of a project, but this page will introduce you to just how easy it is to start a wide variety of different kinds of computer projects - all with Hyperstudio, and often being done in just a matter of minutes.

For those that have an interest in just how far HyperStudio can take you, you can also take a look at the "HyperStudio For You" web-page, where you can see more advanced applications of HyperStudio in many different ways.../HyperStudio_For/Welcome.htmlshapeimage_5_link_0shapeimage_5_link_1
