This is the Holy Grail of DDO gif images. This.
But it will be really time consuming to get perfectly correct. Partly due to the difficulty of getting a clean and well synchronized shot, but mostly due to the laborious by-hand process of cutting the beholder out from the background. Which I haven’t even begun on this version since I didn’t get the synchronization exactly right.
Stupid jump. I think I missed maybe 5 frames. But they are important, the whole things looks all jerky if you don’t get all of it right.
So, this was supposed to be a much better looking beholder, but I’ve run out of time, and am stuck with what I have so far. A work in progress.
Oh well. You can still see the charm in the creature. You can still see why this will the Holy Grail of DDO gif images if I can ever get it just right.
If I can get this one right …. well, no one is going to shower me with riches. But I might have to retire as a gif maker because that will be the absolute pinnacle. Peak gif.
But I am a long way away from seeing the peak.
