.GIF version of The swarm



You're watching my first ever done .gif.

My goal was to get under 5MB, but I wasn't successful as you can see.
I reduced frames, colors and dimension of the original and wouldn't want to reduce any of that further.
I also did web-optimisation in PS.

If there's a way to make it even smaller, feel free to tell me in the comments.:)

A really useful thing to do is to convert a video file into a .SWF, you can make things absurdly high in resolution but keep the filesize down. It's what I do, at least. I ain't got Flash, I just use Freemake to convert an AVI to a SWF. Simple and dirty, but for a simple animation, it's fine <3

Already did this!
But thank you anyway for the reply.

My goal here was, to make it in the .gif format, because it's better for sharing.
But quality wise relative to file-size .swf surely is much better.

I seen that straight after, actually.

That's true. And SWFs aren't viewable on mobiles. Gifs are easier to get around <3

Yes. There are rendered pics in my gallery.
I also am going to make a few more early next year, if there's time.
So stay tuned!

WOW! :wow: This... this is TRULY amazing! :la: First off, I LOVE how well Chrissy came out here, and how well you captured all of those epic details <3 For starters, her eyes look simply fabulous :love: Next, you drew her mane so gorgeously, and her wings also look insanely cool :D

Next, all the Changelings look incredible as well, with their details. I'm also really liking the overall lighting effects you've put into this as a whole :)

Altogether, truly an A+ piece of work :clap:

make a second turntable that's lagging by a frame or 2, put it beside this one, create a stereoscopic version :)
