The above slide show was made with an app called PicTrip. The PicTrip developer dropped an ad on my Combo Apps Facebook Page. I was curious about this app so I look at it. It’s was FREE at the time and FREE for a limited time. Basically it’s a fast paced slide show, to make you look a vacation blur or one blurry trip. It’s a very cool concept. You can also apply music to you slide show, but the longest you can make it is a little over a minute. The slide show above is only 7 seconds with 30 images.
After I made this slide show, I was walking to the trolley station and thought how can I make this animated ? There is this guy name Aaron Davis on Flickr. You can check out it sets of collaborate animated slide shows HERE. He would post 5 sets of animated photo series and one of would grab a photo to edit, first come first serve. Then after we finish our edits he would make a motion slide show of our work. It was a really awesome collaboration effort. I’ve left MobiTog, so I’m not sure what Aaron is up to these days. I know he wanted to make a one long motion picture. Check out Aaron Davis’ work on Flickr.
Now I’m going to show you how I did close to the same thing that Aaron did with his motion sequence slide show with this app PicTrip. I will warn you that this a crude interpretation of his work. I’m hoping to improve this technique and style of motion over time.
Normal sequence of photos taken with Hipstamatic, edited with Dynamic Light and framed with Photo Shake.
This is my normal trip slide show, I’ll show another sequence I made with an added trippy effect.
These are my crazy edited version of the same sequence. Most of you know how I did this edit process. This also took me longer to edit each of the 5 photos. Than putting together the slide show.
In order for to make this sequence work to work properly, I had to save the photo 5 times each from Photo Forge 2. This will take up lots of space on your iPhone or any iDevice.
You can select two way with this app. One you can select the first photo to the last one last photo. Two you can tap on each photo at time.
You can choose 3 different speeds of your fast pace slide show and add music.
Once you put it together, it does all of the processing for you. You can tap on the play button and see your creation. After you’ve decided you like you fast pace slideshow you can email them or post it on Facebook. It auto saves on your camera roll.
My goal is to do a huge project of this kind of animation work to a full length music track. I’ll probably need a better slide show program to mix with my music track. Maybe music artist will notice the work I’ve done and let me do a music video for them.
