Scratch, new software to create animation

20 May, 2007

Scratch- a software which lets users create their own animated stories and video works has been developed at MIT's Media lab. The free programming tool, named Scratch, is mainly aimed at kids.

The main advantage of Scratch is that it lets users create their own animated artworks without knowledge of prior computer languages. Scratch uses a simple interface which allows users' programs to be assembled like building blocks.

Scratch has been developed at the MIT's Media Lab, US and allows users to blend video, audio, and pictures.

Professor Mitchel Resnick, one of the researchers at the Lifelong Kindergarten group at MIT, said, "Computer programming has been traditionally seen as something that is beyond most people - it's only for a special group with technical expertise and experience. We have developed Scratch as a new type of programming language, which is much more accessible."

Objects that can be downloaded or cut-pasted from other websites can be put together in different blocks and animated.
