the " spin " is simply the image file changing the displayed image from one to the next , at a set speed - and in a calculated sequence
the " animation " in this case is made up of 34 individual images , comprising the different ` poses `
leave it alone for 4 hours - as i have and it changes direction a total of 9 times
so much for psychic powers
PS - i can predict that several people will jump on this reply and claim that they really can make changes happen
well - my answer is :
a - you are deluded
b- you are lying
an animated gif is simply a sequence of image changes and a refresh rate - it can be programmed to change
if you really beleve that you have the power to alter it - try the same tactic with another animated gif selected @ random from the web
if you have the pwer to change the instruction set in one file , you should be able to do it with any file
heck - throw away you KB and mouse and control the computer by the power of your mind
what amazes me is the psychology of such memes and peoples willingness to believe in them
Well I must be A. deluded or B. I am a liar. OR C -- I dont watch it long enough?... or D. you didnt leave it 4 hours and youre a liar. lol (just
expanding those possibilitys )
Doesnt make sense its all over the place for me id see tons of switching in 4 hours if I was crazy enough to sit and look at it.
It switched more than 9 times in 20 minutes!? sometimes it stays either way for ages...
It isnt about psychic powers noone said that, WHY would you think that? more like the magic eye puzzles and illusions.
I dont know the basics of animation and making .gifs. You said its random, then you said theres a pattern of 9 switches in 4 hours, so how is that
random? I saw many switches in just 20 minutes... but then... Im a liar
I took it apart myself I see the bmp frames... ive played it slow and fast and the switching took longer when I was used to looking at it... then
starting to read took it back the other way etc..
Not saying I dont agree with you yet! I just dont know
