Wiggle Animation Plug-in

Post#1 by tim » 20 Nov 2020, 13:19


Okay so there's wiggle photography where you take multiple shots of a scene from slightly different angles to create wiggle animation.
I thought it would be neat to create wiggle animations out of different layers.
So here it is.
wiggle-animation.py
(2.42 KiB) Downloaded 22 times
wiggle-animation.py
version 2. Allow you specify "Use Active Path" to move frames around according to path and number of frames to generate (like moving camera effect)
(3.88 KiB) Downloaded 9 times
wiggle-animation.py
version 3. Restore your layers to original positions after animation is created (so if you want it to run plug-in again it doesn't produce different results [to have same starting point again])
(4.15 KiB) Downloaded 13 times
wiggle-animation.py
version 4. Cross-eye animation (so you can cross your eyes to merge 2 images side by side into one image and see depth)
(6.21 KiB) Downloaded 8 times
wiggle-animation.py
version 5. Cross-eye Wiggle type added (without using path) and restore everything to starting condition after finishing
(7.21 KiB) Downloaded 13 times
Plug-in Menu Location: Python-Fu/Wiggle Animation

Instructions:
1. Create an image with 2 or more layers.
2. Name each layer with z-coordinate representing depth of layer. For example on top layer you might name it as 1 to tell plug-in that you want top layer to be at depth of 1 unit. z-coordinates must be 1 or higher. The higher the number means the further away from you the layer is. So lower layers would have incremented z values. (See working image below as example).
3. Run plug-in.
4. Selection "Wiggle" or "Use Active Path" and enter number of frames (if Using activing path) (Available in release/version 2).
5. That's it. You'll get a new image with animation layers that you export as animated .gif.
