which program do you use to export gifs with such high quality?

Photoshop...but the key is too make something with a minimal frame count with a mimimal pixel difference between frame.

As a example if you compress an animation with a very subtle grain it will be a much larger file for same quality than a noisyless frame.

2d and 3d since 2002, houdini since 2008

Nice man! Houdini's learning curve is quite steep but definitely worth it. Great work, keep them coming!

Your work is great. Is there any planning to make them loopable, i.e. your last gifs, how do you make sure they are seamlessly looping? From composition to animation you must think about it?

How do you pick your topics/subjects?

They are amazing to look at.

Thanks Magneto.

Kinda hard to give you a correct awser. Process, workflow and idea processing are always differents for each one. 

Anyway you 're kinda right most of the time i think to seamless looping in a very early stage but it's not always the case.

But i don't have any general planification or something. Most of the time i'm messing into Houdini and a idea pops when i'm working on a complete different subject.

For the last serie, the steel marbles one :

At the very beginning i was asking myself how to make an efficient asset  in order to create things like construction game, rollercoaster, tracks, pipe etc.

My goal was to have something you just CTRL+C CTRL+V with a type selector parameter, an orientation parameter and some auto snapping features. The idea was to have an asset who will be efficient enough to be faster than doing it in real life with a contruction game, electric toy car track etc...

After all this background work it took me something like 1 hour to create this 2 lanes track from a blank scene.

The looping was not so much a problem in this scenario. Only 2 marbles are simulated. One for the Yellow lane, one for the blue lane. i've simulated 6000 frames (very close to real time).

Then i just copystamp a point representation with a stamped time sop to loop this. 

At the end i just have a 6 frame endless motion setup where i can freely put any camera.
