Hey folks,

I've been playing around with a few cinemagraphs (external link) lately and been having a lot of fun with it. I put one together of a fencing lunge this week that, while not perfect, I'm pretty happy with.

Might take a minute to load fully.

Hi. Very cleverly done, but it looks a bit odd with the rest of them frozen in time.

Cheers Hannya. The part frozen in time, part in motion is the whole idea behind the cinemagraph. I absolutely love the effect!

Here are two (external link) more (external link) that I've done in the past couple of weeks. It's kind of addicting!

I think the subway has more of an impact. So many ways to interpret it. Thumbs up!

Do you want to share your processing method? These keep coming up, I think I would like to try one in the future.

That's different, but in a neat way... but I agree, kind of strange with everyone else frozen...

It's my favourite so far too, but the fencing shot got a lot of thumbs up from my fencing friends. Cheers :)

I followed a couple of different tutorials online (don't have the links handy I'm afraid) and I'm still in the learning process so I'm not the best one to give instructions. Basically I do this in Photoshop:

File > Scripts > Load files into Stack (this will load all of your images into a single, layered file)
Locate your images and click the 'Align images' checkbox and import them
Crop accordingly if you didn't use a tripod
(photoshop seems to put the oldest image at the bottom which makes the movie play backwards, so I just manually reorder the layers here. I'm sure there's a better way to do this though)
Window > Animation
In the little drop down box in top right of the animation window select Convert to Frame Animation
From the same drop down select Make Frames from Layers

After that, you need to find an image that you want to use as your static image for all the frames and copy it. With the first frame of the animation selected, paste your static layer at the top of all your layers and add a layer mask.

Then mask out the portion of the image you want to show through (basically, the top layer acts a bit like a window frame with the window being the masked out part, showing all of the sequential frames through it as the animation loops through).

That's all I did for the flowing hair image. The other two required quite a bit of masking on each individual frame/layer as there were so many other overlapping moving parts.

Seriously though, online tutorials are probably much better than trying to follow these instructions ;)
