Has Anyone Got Loop Findr Working?

So yesterday I read about this cool new OS X application, Loop Findr, that apparently automagically analyzes an MP4 and finds segments that are ripe for looping as an animated GIF. Unfortunately, I can't make it work. Who can? [more inside]

Gifs, how do they work?

Recently, when I've been trying to look at cute animal gifs*, they have changed how they load. Namely, instead of loading slowly the first loop and then running at normal speed thereafter, they are now loading about 1/3 of the gif duration, then starting again from the top and loading another 1/3, then jumping back again to the beginning and loading again. It's not necessarily a three-time pass. Sometimes it makes 4 passes to finally make it through to the end. It didn't used to work this way. What gives? *and even non-cute, non-animal gifs.

Looking for gifset of a kid dancing while getting arrested

A while back, on tumblr, I saw a gif-set of some kids dancing. One of the kids is then arrested by the police, but then the camera zooms in on his feet, and you can see that he's still dancing even as he's getting arrested. Does anyone have a link for this? I can't seem to find it now, and it's driving me batty.

GIF Archaeology

I'm writing a paper on (animated) GIFs and am trying to track down some of the most (in)famous. I suppose I am talking memes, but I'm more interested in the GIF as an archaeological reference point. I frequent sites like dump.fm, tumblr etc. so am quite tuned in to the glitchy/kitschy side of GIF culture. How theoretical have people got on these wonders of the web? How does one trace the history of an animated GIF? [more inside]

Help me animate like it's 1999

I'm looking for a program that will let me quickly edit animated gifs. I'm looking to do things like combine two gifs together, applying color changes dynamically across all frames (like hue shifts and stuff), basic tweening of objects maybe... I've been using Photoshop and Imageready and haven't been impressed. [more inside]

How far apart should the lenses be for stereo photographs?

I'm going to try making some 3D wiggle pictures, like Jim Gasperini's. There's a how-to on assembling the digital images into animated .GIFs here, and a MeFi thread here, but I have a question about taking the pictures themselves. I don't have a special stereo camera. I'm going to try using two disposable cameras strapped to a ruler in parallel, with me manually snapping both shutters at the same time.

Here's the question: How far apart should the cameras (lenses) be?
