I’ve been here before but a couple of wiggles jumped out of the photos app today.
Both were photos that the phone decided to take HDR photos and I’ve set it to keep a ‘normal’ one two. I’d obviously moved enough in the fraction of a second that separated the two images in each case. arrow-keying through the photos previewed me the wiggles. So:
- Open in fireworks
- Copy one image
- Make a new state and paste in.
- Export as Gif.
On the Hawthorn berries I did a quick copy of the sky from the first frame to the second to keep the background a little stiller.
A bit late for #tdc2098 We’re All Changing | The (new) Daily Create
#tdc2034 Today be on the lookout for your one tree!
Prerequisites, you need ffmpeg installed. I did that with Homebrew .
In Photos app. search from Tree, this works pretty well.
Export all the photos to a folder.
You need to rename all the photos to be sequential, 0001.jpg, 0002.jpg etc.
So open the terminal and cd to the folder of images. Write the following to a file, rename.sh and run with
for i in *.jpg; do
new=$(printf "%04d.jpg" "$a") #04 pad to length of 4
mv -i -- "$i" "$new"
This give you a nice sequence of images. I made an extra image with the music credits too.
ffmpeg -f image2 -i %04d.jpg -c:v libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p trees-1.mp4
slow it down a bit
ffmpeg -i trees-1.mp4 -filter:v "setpts=4.0*PTS" trees-2.mp4
and add some music from an mp3 file in the same folder.
ffmpeg -i trees-2.mp4 -i Faster_Does_It.mp3 -map 0 -map 1 -codec copy -codec:a aac -strict experimental -b:a 192k -shortest tree-audio.mp4

The #DS106 June 30 Day Daily Create Challenge
I am collecting my entries.
I can highly recommend this to get rid of end of term stress.
Alan knows what I like:
Which leads me to robertfoss/audio_shop: Your friendly neighbourhood script for mangling images using audio editing tools
This turns out to be a much quicker way of databending than the convert to RAW, open in audacity, add effects, export to RAW dance I’ve tried before.
I’ve not done much more than a quick trial, but am adding this for later reference.
- Downloaded the script for the link above.
- It needs ffmpeg and Sox. I’ve aready got ffmpeg and quickly installed sox with handbreak.
- then I ran some tests.
It is much quicker than I expected, with images of 1200 pixels taking a few seconds.
I am looking forward to start trying some different effect, changing parameters and combining effects. The script handles video too!
