Cinemagraphs

I love GIFS and I especially love Cinemagraphs, an approach to GIF-making that involves isolating an individual element that will play out a looping animation while the rest of the image remains still. I believe a fashion firm has trademarked the term, but I don’t have a better one.

They’ve been in vogue for a couple years, but I don’t think UR has shared them out yet. Blowhards and Reflectors, let me know if the case is otherwise.

    Cool idea and an interesting effect. Dead wrong for porn, IMO, as they push you start into the uncanny valley.

    To my eyes, the motion goes so strongly against the dead stillness that my brain won’t resolve it, and I can’t get into it.

    The effect draws too much attention to itself, like a gimmick in a children’s book. Pull the paper tab, and a window pops open, then shut again! Look, real fabric for the curtain to blow in the air!
