Today’s video tutorial is all about Cinemagraphs, which are cool animated GIFs where the motion is restricted to a specific area of the image. You can make Cinemagraphs from any video footage as long as there’s a combination of stationary objects and looping elements. Ideally it will have been filmed using a tripod to eliminate shaking or moving too. Clips of escalators, subway trains, or some kind of repetitive human action all produce great results, especially if there’s other areas of the shot that can be frozen to enhance the effect.
