Somali Image Animator

Quick little hack inspired from Parsleymagnet's comment. The video is located at https://vimeo.com/42594793.

If you'd like to create the files yourself, do the following (no warranties):

./find_files.sh
./get_files.sh
mkdir images
mv *.png images/
# Now go through the images and delete duplicates.  I put my uniqitization in files.uniq.txt to help people do this quickly
./normalize_images.sh

Now you have a bunch of images that you can easily turn into a video. Of course, I say easily because I have no clue how to do this on a mac (where is my mencoder?!).

PS: The mencoder command is:

mencoder mf://*.png -mf w=1920:h=1080:fps=1:type=png -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=msmpeg4v2:vbitrate=800 -o ../output.avi
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
