Hi Keith- It is pretty easy, though time-consuming. The animation itself is really simple - I use a program called Microsoft Digital Imaging Pro 10.0. You pretty much open the images, select "flipbook animation" under tools, select the frame size and loop time and you are done. I've heard you can do it with Photoshop using Layers, but I'm still a neophyte at Photoshop. I do use it (Photoshop) though to set levels on each frame (the time consuming part) so the darkest to brightest parts of the image is stretched from 0-256. I look at a number of frames and usually boost the average high (I ignore the headlights, etc). On the north rim fire animation, I had to both raise the highlights and lower the lows. I also didn't mention it in the first post, but I record the original frames at the 20Da's lowest resolution, since in the animation it will be sampled pretty low. -Dean > Dean, > > Those are awesome!
