Whether we are talking about ‘live action’ or animation, the theories that explain our ability to see ‘movement’ apply to both!
Here are the GIFs we watched in the video (Don’t forget to hit your browser’s back button to return to this page!):
Here is the thaumatrope that shows ‘fusion.’ (More on that another day!)
And here is the thaumatrope that shows ‘beta movement.’

KEEP IN MIND… You do NOT have to use GIFMob. If you already have a way to shoot and assemble your animation, by all means, use that. GIFMob is just for those of you who have no other way to shoot and assemble. Next week, we’ll go over alternate ways to put your animation together, but, again… if you already have programs/apps that you like and know how to use… do that! And, no, GIFMob isn’t paying me to promote their app. I just think it’s one of the easiest to use if you’ve never animated before. Plus… it’s FREE!
