Some Looping RND Animations

Recommended Posts

I'm not working in a studio setting anymore, so I've been doing random little houdini experiments to challenge myself, and keep learning new techniques. It's been a lot of fun. :)

Hey does anyone know a better way to present these than instagram, or have a suggestion for a good GIF converter for linux?

I was putting them here:

https://ello.co/theart

 

For the conversion I use the command line tool convert from ImageMagick, I think it's part of most distro's so you shouldn't have to apt-get it.

To get the file size smaller or do some simple speed tweaks, sometimes I use https://ezgif.com/optimize

They are fairly transparent about their process and it could be possible to script what they're doing perhaps.  They link to the tools they employ here: https://ezgif.com/about

 

Hope this helps, and thanks for sharing your RnD gifts!

convert-to-GIF(){
    for ARG in $@; do
        file=$ARG
        file_name=${file%.*}
        palette="/tmp/palette.png"
        ffmpeg -y -i $file -vf fps=10,scale=500:-1:flags=lanczos,palettegen $palette
        ffmpeg    -i $file -i $palette -filter_complex "fps=10,scale=500:-1:flags=lanczos[x];[x][1:v]paletteuse" $file_name.gif
    done
    }

Apparently FFMPEG does a great job creating GIFs as well.
