Re: Birdie. I love this one!


I love this picture too, can you ID this bird? I think it's a Warbler because of it's size and the yellow feathers. There are around 150 varieties of Warblers and I've seen lots of them.

Re: Birdie. I love this one!


I don't think it's a Nashville warbler because it doesn't have the distinctive eye ring and not having the yellow upper rump.
I can look in my birding guide book later and try to find that Warbler.

Re: Birdie. I love this one!


I still can't identify that little bird, I think it's a baby who is drying himself after a rain storm, he's hard to ID with his damp ruffled feathers.
Could be he's not a Warbler too.

I think this bird has been photoshopped to make the breathing movement but that's all that's been done, it's a beautiful real bird photograph.

Re: Birdie. I love this one!


I can understand why 13 frames were needed because it takes at least 6 frames to slowly inhale and 6 to slowly exhale, any less frames the birdie would show rapid panting. I think the breathing effect could be slowed even more.

The picture that I linked to in Tumblr was PSP'd by that guy but you're right, no mention of where he got the birdie from.

I've got to put birdie in Gimp and see those layer frames when I get some extra time.

Re:


They are just parts of birdie in Gimp making the animation. I think that is what I need to do with my Isabel animation but I haven't figured out how to do it yet.

Re: Birdie. I love this one!


I found our little birdie!

A guy named btifulnightmare in ]Tumblr animated the bird's breathing and since then his bird has been reblogged in hundreds of sites.

This is the origin, watch between 32sec and 34sec for the still.

I would love to see Isabel falling asleep, it would need 5(?) cutout stills from the animation you already have, 1st still: eyes wide open for 1 or 2 seconds, 2nd still: eyelid down 1/4 for 1 second, 3rd still: eyelid down 1/2 way for 1 second, 4th still eyelid down 3/4 way for 1 second, 5th still eyelids closed to the end of the animation. Each of these still cutouts will be layers which have to be stacked in proper order. It would be helpful if there was a timeline story board that you could drag or insert your stills from. Maybe there's another video or animation editor/program that's made for this kind of work.

Re:


That is really cool, HG! Thank you so much for finding that.


I think I would need more still shots of Isabel in order to get the falling asleep thing.
