    Hi.

    I am taking a design, media course and we should do something like a book or an animation.
    I wanted to do some kind of comic strips, but then I did remember something I did read about graphic novels on the iPod. The Many Worlds of Jonas Moore
    Do you think I can make some comic strips and use maybe iMovie to make a movie with still pictures + sound, which I can use on the iPod and computers? But what file format should I use to make it work on the iPod and something else I should know before I start?

    I would think you'd need Flash at a minimum; sticking photos and sounds into iMovie would give you a slideshow, which isn't what I think you want.

    The only example I can think of right now is http://www.homestarrunner.com. They converted some of their cartoons into iPod-friendly files (podcast link here). Granted, this is more animation than graphic novel, but I'm sure there's a lot of overlap. I bet that Jonas Moore thing you linked used a lot more than Flash.

    if you are just trying to do comic strips, i dont see why there would be a problem using imovie, inserting pictures, and recording/adding music to play at the same time as the pictures. as for what type of file to make, you should look at the supported video formats for the ipod because im not really sure what they are
