Animating crowd scenes makes me cranky.

Can anyone think of a good religious quote, or quote about death and religion, to go with a print of (the frames of) this?

"For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast, And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed: And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill, And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

From "The Destruction of Sennacherib" by Lord Byron (recently made popular as one of Pam's tattoos on Archer)

But only in "the industry."
 
This is a quote by a good friend of mine in the biz, who is actually a totally happy, upbeat, successful guy. He is also an awesome cynic. I'm not bitter (for reals!), I just find this too funny, and 100% acurate.

Remember, deep inside every cynic is a frustrated optimist. :)

There's a bug in my ass! Talk about serendipity.
So I'm animating an ass for Seder-Masochism, so the Hebrews have something to carry their stuff out of Egypt so their arms are free to let them walk jauntily and leap around. I export a test and see this weird artifact on the upper foreleg. Flash is rendering the shape as it looks in vector ...

Makin' better animated gifs with ffmpeg and Terminal.
Big ups to my friend Barry, who wrote a shell script for ffmpeg (based on this article shared in this comment by Paul Wise) and taught me how to use Terminal on my mac to make much better animated gifs than Flash exports directly. Currently it's significantly more work than just exporting .gif ...

Great animation.  And kudos for going the FFPMEG route, not so much the swiss army knife, and more the ion cannon on all things movie and graphics :)

Animated gif du jour.
Soon I hope to be able to make gifs that look a lot better than this. A friend is helping, but he first needs to teach me some command-line stuff which I've never done on my Mac. Meanwhile here's a dithery giffy glimpse of the Promised Land that is smaller than 640×480 because WordPress has a ...

I almost mistook this for a Princess Celestia tribute of some kind (which isn't exactly out of place for the stuff I routinely see on my G+ stream.)

Animated gif du jour, plus thought.
Gettin' pumped to conquer the Promised Land! Every country that exists originated through violent conquest. The victims of these conquests were victors and conquerors earlier. Is violent conquest legitimate? If not, then no country or nation is legitimate. If nations are legitimate, then violent ...
