I decided to try my hand at "true animation." this is 9 frames repeated 4 times. Each frame is, er... well the end of the first frame is listed as 0:00:00.167 and each frame is the same length.
In the past I've done photography based stop-motion animation. The stop-motion animation frame rate is slightly lower than what I used in this clip, making the vids feel different.
This vid took about 45 minutes to make. I'm not sure I'll play with animation as much as I play with stop-motion, but it was definately a fun exercise.
