Weather..weather every where

Another pain staking attempt to prove to myself that I am a “GIF” master. It is really proper that I did this assignment because it is currently raining. This assignment GIF The Weather, Man!!

(4 stars)I almost gave up on but I continued to persevered. There is not a lot of pictures this time because I had a hard time remembering and doing this project as it is. These four star projects are definitely keeping on my feet.I used this project to add on to my story about an dolphin having an adventure searching for a rare animal.

  1. So I started this project by first selecting a youtube video that had weather in it. looking was really hard because “weather”  and “storm” are in so many song titles. I think the phrase the worked the best was “Video of storm’s” (I am not even sure how I managed to find the perfect Youtube video)

This is the one I selected to use from Youtube:


2.I then proceeded to download the video to my computer. I had to go though the process by first putting the “pwn” in front of the   “http://www.” and the “youtube.com” in the address at the top of the webpage(I had to call the tutoring center because I had forgotten the three letter word). I decided to favorite the website http://deturl.com/  (that is the website the phrase “pwn” leads to) so I could use it afterwards if I wanted to. Finding the proper link that would download properly was a challenge. I finally found one and downloaded it to my computer.

3. The next step was to convert the downloaded file to an actual Gif. I used the website http://ezgif.com/ to convert it. I tried immediately to uploaded going to the website “http://ezgif.com/” the clicking on the “Video to Gif” tab. When you get there you have then select the “video”and then press “upload”.

The first time I got an error message saying “Image is to large” (it is then I realized I had to make the video a little more compact).

4. I opened imove so I could edit the video, I dropped the video into imovie instead of uploading it by searching for files. When the movie was fully loaded a selected the slides I wanted to delete and pressed  “Delete” on my keyboard. (I had to repeat steps 3 and 4 a couple of times until I got the right length)

5. After the video was converted I uploaded it to Imgur.

How come it always sounds so easy on paper, I think this was the hardest GIF so far. I think that it was also harder for me because I had not gone through the process of making one and I had forgotten what I was taught. I am really glad thought that I booked marked the websites “http://ezgif.com/” and “http://deturl.com/” so I can speed up the process a little more next time.

 

Rooting for the home Gif

Gif’s….

now that is a situation …I am coming closer to the Idea that the Gif might be like the Home team , an easy win!! I ended up creating 3 total Gifs one for the Assignment  StrereoGif. ( 1 star), and one for today’s Assignment  “It is a Great Day For Sporting GIFs”  (1 star). As a bonus I will attach a GIF that me and spencer (the technology tutor and umw) made it’s a short clip from the music video “About You Now” by Amanda Casgrove.. I really credit my solo Gif to my brain (of course for remembering) and a fellow student by the username   his tip of using http://ezgif.com/video-to-gif  really helped me out a lot …

This is a group of rowers that obviously have to show team work each day. My hats off to them because some times teamwork gets real complicated.

This Gif didn’t work out to well I had trouble embedding it……

I can’t believe it I did it. Victory !! I think I only got it embedded because I know how to read basic code. The  Gif below(at the end of the blog) the code reads :

<img class=”alignnone” src=”http://i.imgur.com/XUqhALP.gif” width=”640″ height=”360″ />

Translated in english I want to make and image work but there is no alignment the code of where it is “src” is “then the address” and this is the width and the height. All I did was  delete and insert the basic url that was attached to the src (which was http://i.imgur.com/XUqhALP.gif) and inserted the other gifs basic address. It can get real complicated when it comes to addressing stuff to the right image of video. This week I had opportunity to work on direct embedding I hope I get extra points for trying. I am glad I at least know basic code it really saved me last time. This is for those time I nearly fell asleep learning Java and other programs

 

 

Sometimes you just got to walk away happy… like

Earthquakes ….Quake

 

When  think about it this its like a earthquake.For my first Gif I was trying to keep it simple hints why a did a StrereoGif. ( 1 star) The process was simple.

I then went through the “Creation”   process by dragging the picture into the center of the two boxes:

I found this “Gif” to be easy and reassuring that I would start off on the right foot.
