Visual Assignment 347: Photo It Like Peanut Butter
Rather than making animated GIFs from movie scenes, for this assignment, generate one a real world object/place by using your own series of photographs as the source material. Bonus points for minmal amounts of movement, the subtle stuff. See a bunch of examples at http://cogdogblog.com/2012/02/10/photo-gif-peanut-butter/
I DID IT!!!!!!!! Here are my very first animated gif project(s)!!
Then I tried another idea.
I set this to play only once. I wanted to keep you from getting dizzy. 🙂 If it fails, then I’ll reset it to loop. It didn’t work. I guess it won’t play unless I set it to loop. Just scroll this one up out of the way to read the rest of the post. 🙂
It still didn’t work very well. I had to cut out more than half of it. It was originally supposed to be a 360° view. You may still get dizzy with this one. Oh well. I tried. It worked in my head when I had the idea…
At least the train worked. 🙂
I’ve had these images for several months now, and I’ve been wanting to do something with them. I didn’t even know what an animated gif was until yesterday, when Jim Groom talked about it during the broadcast of the DS106 class and showed us some. Then I became determined to figure out how to make one. So I first read this and this and this. Then I found THIS, and it was very helpful, although I had to figure out a few things on my own. I will try to follow up with my own tutorial tomorrow. 🙂 I posted the tutorial HERE.
Back by popular demand…
This is the other version that I had decided not to post because it made me nauseous, but I’m putting it here because I think maybe you wanna see it anyway. I get motion sickness very easily, so it could be just me. Let me know what you think . 🙂
