I've been going through my Aperture library looking for photographs to publish on my Photo a Day journal. A couple of weeks ago I found a series I shot in 2009 during the Sydney Fire Water Festival of the Sydney Opera House being illuminated by a light installation and posted one of them.
The show was amazing and I took many photographs that day. The Opera House was illuminated with abstract designs that changed constantly. It looked awesome.
I thought it would be a good idea to create an animated gif of them, so here it is.
It's the first gif I create and I'm still learning. It's a little over 2mb, so it may take a while to load. Sorry about that. I'm not sure how to make it smaller.
The process was fairly simple. I created a slideshow in Aperture with each slide playing for .10 seconds and the transition in dissolve for .01 second. I exported that as a video at 720p resolution. Then I dropped that into a beta version of Gifrocket and what you see is what I got.
I'm excited to play with animated gifs more in the future.
