A few animations--just for fun - Page 2

post #31 of 54
Thread Starter 
Never mind--I just found the answer. There IS a simple transparent background option for .gif files. It doesn't have the effect I'd hoped for on my animations (each frame shows simultaneously--I can see that the images must be spread out so as not to overlap, as you have done), it certainly brings new possibilities. Thanks for the idea, B2!

Welcome to EpicSki, by the way!

Best,
Bob

Hi, Bob. Like your work.

</p>
In fact, you can keep background transparency while showing simultaneous frames as you do in your animations. You do need to mask a bit where the images overlap if you want to animate with each frame showing simultaneously. I didn't consciously select images that were 'spread out' any more than I do when I create a still photomontage. In either case (GIF or p-montage), I select those frames that best show the appropriate movements.

Here you go.





And go.

and go....

Have fun!

GIF animator software

A very simple and free tool for building animated GIFs is Microsoft's GIF animator. You can get it here:http://www.rocketdownload.com/details/inte/4282.htm

A request for Bob (or anybody, really):

how about some animations that show different tactics and techniques for moguls, showing different lines thru the moguls, different turn shapes thru them, carved, skidded.........

Independent Leg Steering

In the examples of independent leg steering, I don't see any external rotation of the inside ski tip (pulling away from the outside) as the turns are initiated. There isn't even any visible in the pivot slips, even though these aren't real turns and don't go on edge. Is there an explanation?

How about steering both feet simultaneously, not sequentially?? :

dynamic parallel turns in post 2.

gives a good view of the skis 2 arcs and where the COM would be during the turn.

Are there particular skiing movements/ideas/techniques that you are illustrating with those animations? If so, what are they and what points are you making about them?

Thanks...
