How on earth does this work?!

Some of the stuff in the Flickr Animated Art Group is very clever, especially the Falkirk Wheel.

Question is, how do you go about creating something like this? :confused:

I'm guessing the 'raw material' involves quite a few long exposure shots and the magic is created in Photoshop.

Do you any of you clever PS peeps know how its done? :lease:

Its actually just a huge animated gif (1.2mb!)....and you don't need anything so plush as photoshop to create it: any (free) animated gif software will create the same effect...which is to take a number of images imported into frames, and then rotate through them.

Normally animated gif's are much (much) smaller, because few people want to download a 1mb image on a web page...

Ultimately though - you still need a series of time-lapse high-quality images to begin with for importing into the frames....good excuse to invest in a decent digital camera though! :smashin:
