Spinning gifs for Challenge 14

August 2013 GIF Challenge #14: Fruedian Alphabeta

Tina has again set a very high bar with her example gif.

I started off making the search gif, just to see how it could be done. A quick screen recording-mpeg streamclip – firework workflow go that.

I then used the advance image search to find content I could modify using the ‘too much fun’ search string, this go me a nice flickr photo Too much of a good thing | Flickr – Photo Sharing! by gemsling with a Creative Commons — Attribution 2.0 Generic — CC BY 2.0 license.

I though I might spin the photo ove one of yesterday’s panos, but decided to use another one I had taken (Ben Challum Pano). I’ve got a reasonable workflow for splitting panos into slices and giffing them now (SuperCard is my friend).
Once I had the pano giffed it was just a case of making a new shared layer and adding Josh to it. I wanted to combine the 2 gifs, but the first had 40 odd frames and the pano spin only 16. So I’ve just uploaded then and aligned then in the blog to save a bit of file size.
