Transparent GIFs

July 11, 2007

I’ve been thinking about using GIF files as elements for a while now and finally got around to it. Was an easy change to make but boy does it make a difference. Particularly in motion, the result has an interesting cut-out effect suggesting conventional animation or motion graphics, rather than the typical processing look.

The aesthetic possibilities are endless but my generative potential is somewhat hampered. I’ll have a play with pixel manipulation to see what I can come up with. A colour-sound relationship could be fun.

Next I’ll insert some hand-drawn elements so that things look less ‘cartoony’.
