Small-Print Tutorial - Getting Animated
On Christmas Eve, perhaps having drunk a little too deeply of the spirit of Christmas, Bart posted a picture of himself pulling a quite shocking duck face.
Save and open in GIMP the picture to the left. Click the Duplicate Layer icon (or Ctrl+Shift+D or <Layer><Duplicate Layer>). This will create an identical copy of the original "Background" layer, called "Background Copy".
Use the IWarp techniques we introduced yesterday to alter Bart's expression.
When done, click <Filters><Animation><Optimize (for GIF)> and a new "Untitled" image will be created in .GIF format.
Looking in the Layers Window for this new image, you'll see that the layer names include the string "(100ms)".
This means that when displayed, each layer of the image will show for just 100 milli-seconds. Great if you want to hack the web site of the Epilepsy Awareness Foundation, but a bit too fast for us.
Change the name of the bottom layer to include (say) "(1000ms)" and the top layer "(500ms)".
<File><Save As>"Bart_Wink.gif". This will pop up an Export File window. Make sure you select "Save As Animation". Then click <Export> and <Save> again.
Click on Bart_Wink.gif in file manager and tada! Something for the fap folders of all our lady readers.
