Potpourri (Project 2)


If you were at all wondering how to embed your video on Blogger with the ratio in tact (and in reasonable size), here is the method-



Embed Code of Before

<iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/MI1mWroFImQ?rel=0" width="420"></iframe>

Embed Code of After

<iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="640" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/MI1mWroFImQ?rel=0" width="360"></iframe>

Key difference? The ratio of the embed match the general ratio of the original video itself. Rather than resize to fit the default 'embed', you have a more tallscreen look.

And to explain why my example scales down a little in the bigger box? My export from Photoshop had black bars on the side, as the .H264/Medium Quality export defaults at a max ratio export for some reason. But perfectly fine if yours end up like this. The embed is good looking anyway. :)

NOTE : Do you punch in the embed code on the 'Compose' section of your Blogger post. In the top left, below the Orange 'B', should be two buttons : Compose and HTML. Put embed code in HTML section, then switch right back to Compose to see the result.


Additionally, if you are looking for some more unique inspiration for this project, I have attached some fitting examples of animation to consider.

And a bonus, to help distinguish between "Eastern and Western" animation-
