Also, this recent effort aims to create a youth rebellion in Thailand, where they really, really really love their monarchs.

Ned, it was someone else's work, originally, I think I just added on a few frames at the end. I can't find the original thread to confirm. But thanks. :)

C'mon, no one will give me some source material? I'm in the mood to drunkenly animate, and I have at least 15 minutes. The time is ripe!

i've been working on a 25-gif "sticker pack" for giphy the last few weeks. the deadline is tight and the file restrictions have been challenging - keep it 500kb or less with dimensions of 618x618. normally i work with 490x490 and end up at around 2MB, so to cut down on the file size i've had to limit myself to 6 to 8 frame animations rather than the two or three dozen i usually end up with. on top of that, they're "stickers", which means they need to be transparent so they can be plastered into text messages (and on top of texts and images, depending on the messaging app you use). i rarely make transparent gifs, and quickly realized that i couldn't use any anti-aliasing, which i almost always use. anti-aliasing creates blended, "soft" semi-opaque pixels on edges so that it looks more realistic. but transparent gifs don't work well with anti-aliasing because they render the half-transparent pixels as either 0% or 100% transparency, which creates the really ugly blocks around the edges of some transparent GIFs.

anyway, since all of this flies in the face of what i've been making the last year or two, i revisited some of my older gifs (2011/12) that i made back when Tumblr had more restrictive file size limits for GIFs (it used to be 1MB! now it's ~3MB (some day it'll be hilarious to cite these numbers in the same way that we laugh at hardware capabilities from the 1960s). the old tumblr restrictions were kind of nice because they forced everyone to be more efficient. or actually, i think mainly people just ended up using lots of frames but downgrading the quality to absolute garbage level to get it under 1MB. but either way, i ran across an old 6 frame thing i did and reworked it a bit. this isn't the version that'll go into the sticker pack, but i like this one too:

i finished the 25-GIF sticker pack, so if you're the kind of person who likes to use gifs in text messages you can check it out! you can find it on basically anything that uses giphy (facebook, iMessage, apps, etc) by searching for either #zachscott or #weinventyou. they're transparent, and if you have iMessage set up you can even plop them onto previous text messages and images that you've sent. it's kind of wild! they're supposed to be compiled into an official "pack" soon, which should hopefully make it easier to share to people. it's kind of weird to tell people you did something and then direct them to find it using hashtags. anyway, there were some big limitations in the requirements (which i rambled about above), but here are a few that i liked:

thanks forks and LBI!

currently they're all collected at the top of this page: https://giphy.com/weinventyou/ , but they'll slide down the page as i add more gifs in the future.
they look kind of crazy there because transparent images usually do, unless they're on a lighter background like in a text.

Would be sweet if u got paid by usage for I'd send them to all my friends till they rip my phone from my hands tbh.

apparently Line (the Japanese messaging app) makes upwards of $250 million a YEAR on these kinds of stickers. so maybe after this last batch gets collected into more of an official pack (should be any time, i'm told?), i can reach out to Line to see if they'll pay me for some more.

i DID find that interesting i now have a list of people he mentioned that i'll be checking out this afternoon, so thanks! plus i want to check out his other videos. it's a real gift to be able to cover huge topics like that in such a structured way. just really well done.

i'm not sure that he ever directly states that we're about to cross out of the uncanny valley, but i'm not sure that i agree. i have a really harebrained set of reasons why i think that's so, but maybe i'll see if i can revive your uncanny valley thread to elaborate because i'm sure 99% of ILX has learned not to click on this thread

sort of on the same topic, but i'm interested in making stuff that reflects back the uncanny valley effect, but using real life objects, sort of like this:

http://78.media.tumblr.com/83c6a26e3856b9454abe3b50c507c0bd/tumblr_ox9looUjSd1qdmmiqo2_500.gif

incidentally, i think that guy's thesis is that we are officially past the uncanny valley now and that the question is what do we do with what lies ahead

Chocolate-covered gummy bears? Not ruling those lil' guys out. (ulysses), Tuesday, 17 October 2017 17:13 (one month ago) Permalink

my instinct earlier was that the far end of the uncanny valley is still quite a bit away. but i don't know, then i asked my partner what she thought, and she thought it was within sight, that there are already examples of digital creations that already fool us. and then i remembered peter cushing's character in star wars rogue one - i had no idea he was just CGI until long after i saw the movie. so in a sense, it already passed a form of the AI test. that would have been unthinkable 15 years ago, without some sort of camera trickery (like using a silhouette or having the character underwater or something). but rogue one showed peter cushing's character close-up, in good lighting, and with lines of dialogue. so the fact that it's been done suggests that other AI efforts will also soon fool the human eye. and that's just the characters - environmental effects often fool the eye as well.

so maybe he's right.
