The science of animated gifs – Part 2

My 2nd attempt was a far less ambitious one than the first yet was very much more focused. I wanted to achieve 2 things, to capture my nephew in some characteristic action and to yield some laughs from the family.

Attempt 2: Nephew’s Flying Kiss
I coaxed the little bugger to do a flying kiss and video-ed him on my phone. He protested for all of 10 seconds then gave in. With that precious resource I sat down to work trying to create the gif with what I remembered about the process. Took me only 20 min this time. At the very least, his mum, my sis-in-law, seemed pleased with the result.
