Part 1 — 7pm on Thursday January 12th, 2017
Join the makers at Hive76 to learn about the anatomy of GIF encoding, be introduced to the spiritual ancestors of GIF technology, and discover the GIF’s place in art and pop culture. Use open source image editors and web apps to make the GIFs of your dreams. It’s way more than anyone needs to know about GIFs (hard ‘G’). Please bring a laptop with wireless capability and at least 200MB of free space and 64MB RAM.
Part 2 — 7pm on Thursday January 19th, 2017
Be introduced to advance GIF making techniques such as dithering, Moire pattern leverage, stereoscopy, perfect loops, and Cinemagraphs. Refine the timing and palette shifting of GIFs you started in Part 1 to achieve GIF perfection. Please bring a laptop with wireless capability and at least 200MB of free space and 64MB RAM.
We’ll be using GIMP to create and edit GIFs.
