There’s an App for That

Mixed States

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yessss!!! The Mixed States Project has successfully crossed over to multimedia status with my first working GIF!! Last week I spilled about twenty hours into trying to create this type of animation in Keynote, but when exported as a movie all variable customs timings were gone and it moved about as fast as a nervous slug. My next step was going to be to recreate the animation in Final Cut (as a video), or learn how to create a GIF in Photoshop, but last night while researching something else I stumbled upon the solution to my technical woes. I couldn’t believe it!!! When they say, “There’s an app for that,” they really aren’t kidding! The animation you see above took less than five minutes to make! I’m in media heaven!

As a guy who always had the latest photo and movie equipment in the 50s and early 60s, my dad would have loved this!! Here’s to keeping the geek gene alive!!
