Welcome to this month's gif challenge!!

With Halloween just around the corner, it's time to put all those props and costumes to good use!!
The theme this month will be as open as possible to allow everyone to use their imagination and submit diverse entries!
I'm sure there will be other halloween themed photo contests this month as well so i want to give you all the opportunity to do these at the same time!



Without further ado,



Welcome to FRIGHT NIGHT!!

Will your doll be wearing a costume this month? Will she do something spooky or freaky? Will she be sporting elaborate makeup?
It's all up to you in this month's challenge so let your imagination go wild!

As i discovered last month it really isnt as hard as one would think to make a gif, so i will include hollows+fentiman's handy tips at the bottom of the op
which convinced me to finally give it a try and invite you all to experience the joy of seeing your doll come to life for all to see! You will be surprised at how awesome it is i guarantee you!

You can play around with different props, jack-o-lanterns, even move some things on your set to produce the "Carpet Ghost" effect that sometimes happens when we unintentionally
move things around when taking pictures, but this time intentionally to produce spooky effects! (like the curtains in my gif last month :p)









Here is a quick and dirty gif example:


Image






This month's Category C rules are:

1. A new or recent animated video - defined herein as a sequence of at least 2 frames played as a continuous loop, in .GIF format viewable on TDF. No external links.
2. Shot by yourself, not taken before September 30th 2017, and not posted before as a video.
3. An entry into this category may contain any mixture of dolls, even CGI dolls.
4. Doll NUDITY ''IS'' welcomed and appreciated.
5. Photoshop or other image editing is OK. Special Effects and CGI are also acceptable.
6. Do not break any TDF rules regarding photos, and also comply to The Doll Album AUP.
7. Include the name of your doll(s), and a title/caption for your animation.
8. Please be mindful of your doll's sugar consumption during halloween, excessive sugar consumption has been proven to cause various health problems and weight gains! Also, you may choose to cleverly use to your advantage any " CARPET GHOST" during the making of your submission.

And remember: All kinds of dolls are allowed to take part in each category!

This month's challenge will run until approx… 10pm EST Friday October 27th 2017, with the next three days open for voting.
The top three winners (unless there are ties) will be announced on Monday October 30th 2017 at approx 10pm EST.




Here i am going to quote IG from last month with hollows+fentiman's handy dandy tips on creating a gif animation. Try it out it's incredibly easy you will see! Personally i ended up using gifmaker.me!

Quote:
I use the free software, PhotoScape, to create my GIFs and, like Bud, I find it very easy to use. Once you click on the "Animated GIF" part of the front page you can see the usual file explorer on the left, click on where you've saved your photos and your string of photos appears in the bottom left corner. You click on the first (actually, it's the last pic as it's shown in reverse date/time order!) and drag it to the top bar. Click on the next and drag it next to the first and repeat! The GIF magically starts happening! So you don't get confused as to which is next, the last photo you've used has a bloom effect on it. Don't worry if you get to the end of the bar, it will keep adding the photos. It will show a + sign on the cursor when you're in place to add at the end of the bar (I did nearly 60 I think for Ashaki's bongo GIF!). If you get one wrong you can just click on the offending photo on the top bar and delete it using the cross top right! Don't worry, it won't delete your actual photo!

You can change the time period with a button on the right. I use about 0.3 sec but adjust and see what happens! Your GIF starts as soon as you've entered a second photo! If you've taken a series of photos on the same camera and settings you don't need to bother with any other settings but have a play later perhaps! If you want to emphasise something in the GIF, like my Ashaki drinking her coffee, add that photo again at least once more but you can add quite a lot if you want (you can always keep adding until it's right or delete if too many!). This is especially important if you want to add a photo with text on it so people have time to read it (see Ashaki's December Christmas GIF)!

One thing I have found that is awkward is that, if you have a photo series in portrait, you have to right click on EACH photo on the bar and "Rotate CCW" or your GIF will come out sideways! I haven't found an easy way to do this yet so try to use landscape photos to make it easier!

Don't forget to save it with a title somewhere you can find it again!

Two images is all it takes to make an animated GIF and it can be just changing the effect of the same photo, like color to black and white for instance! good luck.... IG







In closing, special thanks to H&F for his precious help with hosting the Cat C challenge this month!

Let the games begin!!

Oh my! Cool theme! I think we're going to have fun with this one! Well done ZannyDanger! I hope you enjoy hosting this one!

Thanks for the nod by the way! I know some members use other programmes but I do find PhotoScape fairly easy to use! Don't forget you can alter the speed of each frame if you want which I did in my last GIF. Ashaki's clock throwing was much faster than the rest of the GIF making it a bit more realistic!

Cheers, Hollows.

You guys are all awesome, thank you so much for the warm reception!! I hope we get many entries!

Anung, Lily is at a clear advantage here, like others said she can use her psychic abilities to move other things around the scene, it's all up to you!!

Personally for the first time in many years, i'm actually excited again to go shopping for halloween costumes!

I'm very much looking forward to seeing what we can all come up with, and welcome back tongue-O-matic!!


:glou:

Oh dear! :oops: Please don't say that IG, it's just not true!!
I absolutely love your gifs, and to tell you the truth... actually took some inspiration from Lexi, London and D'Arcy's magic show for this one!!

I was really determined to push the envelope as far as possible this time, to see where i could take this idea but i must admit that it ended up taking me an unhealthy amount of time to finish... (98 frames! 8O ) so I would say it has more to do with the ridiculous amount of work i've chosen to put into it rather than talent... i have no doubts that you guys could do the same! I do appreciate the kind words though!

With this month's theme i am clearly in my element but in reality, i had no idea the size of the endeavour i was about to undertake... I am quite happy to see the result but now that it's done i can tell you for sure that my next entries won't be as elaborate! :P

However i will try to take it as a compliment, and i'm very much looking forward to seeing your entry!! :multi:
