the ‘cinemagram’ app for iPhone converts short video files into selectively animated GIFs
the ‘cinemagram‘ app for iPhone is the most recent innovation in the revived interest in GIF animation art.
the application lets users easily convert short film clips into a single, animated image, and is the first app to offer
a range of special filters and other photographic effects that can be layered onto the resulting animations.
the application lets users select only a particular section of the image to transform into their GIF,
allowing for interesting effects wherein a video appears to be inset within a still photograph,
limb movement is isolated from the rest of a subject’s body, or motion of the phone functions as a camera trick.
‘cinegram’ follows in the footsteps of the ‘kinoptic‘ app for iPhone, which also generates GIF cinemagraphs
from short videos, although with a different user interface and focus.
