Grab a picture, slice it into a number of individual files and play them with QuickTIme
Version: 1.2motionMaker grabs a picture and takes little slices out of it and saves them into individual files.
Operating System: Mac OS X
These files can then be opened with QuickTime player and turned into a nice little movie which makes it look like the thing is moving! Which, of course, it is.
The best way to think about the program is having a large wall mural before you. You have a laser pointer which is in the shape of a box. You move the pointer across the image and take a picture of what's in the rectangle.
What you get is a bunch of pictures which you could use to create a movie of panning across this mural.
The mural is a JPG, TIFF, PNG and the laser pointer is a user defined slice of image that gets saved to a file.
