Trying Out a Cinemagraph
I recently got interested in cinemagraphs and thought I’d give it a shot. This was made with an iPad app-in-development called Echograph. The output to .gif was good, but not great, so I optimized it through Photoshop to create this:
The Echograph team is hard at work on some awesome updates, including tutorials for native (higher-def) MP4 with HTML5, which degrades to GIF (like above) when the browser doesn’t play nice.
I think this is the most exciting photography app since …. ever, even if the app currently is only to quickly prototype a cinemagraph to see a quick example of a finished product. I think with some work though, Echograph will have this functioning well enough to produce finished cinemagraphs with ease.
I’ll post a more thorough review once the app improves and their site is built out to include the tutorials which will be necessary to really enjoy the product.
What do you think?
