Image Drop-In

This is a pretty common effect. So common that I think when I was done, I was reminded of intro videos of 1970’s variety shows. I have no explanation beyond that. I started this after the unfolding video because I wanted to see if there…

Sliding Tiles

When looking around the Internet for inspiration, I came across a small animation that you might see on a magazine website or even a commercial. It featured tiles sliding into the picture to reveal an image beneath, and when the tiles slid…

Welcoming Our Bot Overlords

Even though I have pretty much given up streaming, I am still active in promotion of our group’s participants and in the administration of our streaming community Discord, the Wombattery. I’ve written about our server before in terms of what we had…
