Interesting happenings in the village this week, there seem to be a lot of ‘learning’ going on. As I watch number six get into trouble I am thinking my decision to be less confronting was a good idea. However this episode is taking the committee well inside my wheelhouse. Although I’ve not got number six’s skills I think there are other ways to subvert the establishment here, perhaps a bit of digital graffiti…
As we move into Week 2 and get more information, it appears that a major theme in The Prisoner is repetition (a long with reflection and recursion I hope).
Before I start thinking about the audio assignments, I knocked up a few gifs from The Chimes of Big Ben:
I repeat a well trod playflow.
Open video in MPEGStreamclip
Select in and out points
Trim (command T on a mac)
Export to Other Formats…
Choose Image Sequence
I usually click options and choose Jpeg and 12 frames /second
Right Click on First File in export list
Open in Fireworks
Select all the other images in series & Drag to FW window
Cmd-A Select All
Open FW Frames window, Choose Distribute To Frames from the Window
This creates a series of frames.
Further editing and setting the Export Options in the Optimise Window
Export to Gif
I made a Say It Like Peanut Butter – YouTube video showing the process a while back. Fireworks, as I’ve blogged about before (more repetition), is great for gifs as it separates layers and frames. That make it much easier for me to understand.
