I recently discovered I can kinda make not-very-good GIF edits to some extent, provided certain conditions are met.  SO, I have decided to open a thread where you can request your own GIF edit!  Here's how this is going to work:

Since I have no idea how this is going to go, and I don't want to be swamped with requests, there will be only three spots.  If I find I can accomplish those without too much trouble, I may open a second round, and so on.  Like on my Dragon Banners thread, I reserve the right to turn down any request for any reason.  If your request is turned down, your spot will be open for another request, whether from you, or from another user.  Also like my other thread, this will operate on a first-come, first-served basis.  You will provide the GIF to be edited and the details of how the colors should be. Note that I am only able to make color edits.  I cannot add/remove markings, etc.  Everyone got that?  Good.

Now I mentioned that certain conditions must be met if I am to edit your GIF.  Those conditions are as follows:

  1. The GIF must have at least one frame of nothing but background.  This is because I use the difference (to be precise, a Difference Key) between the background and the other frames to determine where I adjust colors.  If I don't have this, I end up adjusting the entire image's colors, because my editing program (Blender) has no way of determining what's foreground (I.E. dragon) and what's not.
  2. The background/camera in your GIF must remain stationary.  This is for basically the same reason. If the background's moving, there is obviously going to be difference between frames, the Difference Key is going to pick up on that, and I'm going end up adjusting colors where I shouldn't.  Very slight movement would probably be acceptable, as I could most likely filter it out, but anything more won't work.

I think that's it.  Sorry about the stringent rules, but that's what I have to work with.  Here's a quick example of what I can do, arranged into a nice table that the forum will most likely destroy, because it does that:

Original:

 Sleuther dives, curling into a ball

Edited:

  A dark teal Triple Stryke with a white underside and (almost) yellow horn tips dives, curling into a ball

Like my Dragon Banners, you can use your edited GIFs anywhere you wish.  Credit is appreciated, but not required.  Enjoy! :)

Some housekeeping

For tracking purposes, here's a list of spots:

  1. Eclipse
  2. Open
  3. Open

Thread status:  Open for requests!

 

If you could not reply directly to this post, that would be great.  It would ensure that I can continue my housekeeping here, which makes things easier.  Thanks!

 

Something to note:  This works best (and maybe only works) for shots where the dragon flies or runs into or out of frame.

Wow! Sounds cool!

Ooh! I didn’t know it was possible to edit gifs! Sounds really cool could I get one? Uh... I don’t really know how to insert gifs into the forums but could you edit the gif where toothless sticks his tongue out I think you can see it if I use a link...

 

https://images.app.goo.gl/mKZRNVcQHGgSvRAV6

 

Okay yeah hope that works. Oh and for editing can you make him look like this? If you can’t do that could you make him purple? Thanks in advance! Oh yeah, and if you could let me know how to use gifs on the forums that would be helpful XD

He loves to splash around in any body of water, but prefers salt water. He is gentle and kind, and very protective over those he is close to, like his dragon comrades and his trainer. But, when they are threatened he becomes aggressive and in dire time so he may unlock his alpha-power. His dream is to visit the Great Barrier Reef.

Er... I feel like you didn't read the OP very carefully...

I'm afraid that won't really work.  I mean, I could try the "turn him purple" thing, because there might be enough contrast between him and the background that certain keying methods could work...  But as I stated, I cannot add/remove markings, so the white nose, ear tips, and head... spines? flaps? fins? What do you call those? aren't going to happen.  I also have my doubts about the eyes.  I think they're too similar in color to the background.  But I'll see if I can make something work.  Any clarification on "purple"?  That's a pretty broad spectrum...

Uh yes I did read you can’t make the markings, I was saying if you can get close to it. And for “turn him purple” it can be any purple. Again the keyword I used through my post was if. As in if you can’t do it or if that doesn’t work I can change the gif and etc.

Sorry, but that won't work either.  While that GIF meets the requirement of "Stationary BG/camera", it doesn't have a frame of just background.

Nah I don’t think your requirements are too strict, but it’s kinda hard because I have no idea  what a frame of just background is, and it’s kinda confusing when you just say markings, it would sorta make more sense to put that you can only so one color or something like that. 

And, since that won’t work how about this?

https://images.app.goo.gl/ERMrWhHC69BFa6cz8

If that gif works can you make the monstrous nightmare lime green like this:

*Sigh*

Well, I can explain that.  See, an animated image is actually made up of several individual images that are cycled rapidly, one after another.  This gives the illusion of motion.  A "Frame" is a single one of those individual images.  So "a frame of just background" means just that:  A single "slice" of an animation that doesn't have the foreground object (in the case of this thread, the dragon to be edited) in it.  Does that make sense?

Yes it’s makes sense, and I’m aware of how animation works I just can’t think today. But thank you for explaining but it is hard to find dragon gifs with a frame of just background.

Yeah, sorry, I'm going to have to turn this down.  There's just no way to extract Toothless from that image, so there's no way I can make edits to his colors.  This is why my requirements include "at least one frame of just background".

This is a little... I don't know.

Uhh... Was I not clear that I cannot add/remove markings, such as color changes on a Fury's ears?  Because this is both the second request and second post that is requesting such modifications, which I cannot do with my workflow.  Sorry, but I'll have to turn this down. :/

Oh! Yes, of course. I deeply apologize. I guess I didn't know fully what that meant. I didn't know that meant you can't change the color of the ear nubs. I apologize for that. I understand.

"Markings" is the best term I can come up with...

That's alright.  Maybe I could have been clearer.  If you have another request, you can post the necessary things, and if I decide to do more, you'll have a spot.

Actually, you have secured the last spot.  If you want it.  I can try turning Toothless white, but I won't be able to add the black ear tips/other markings.  Like I stated, I cannot add/remove markings.  That GIF might work. I can't tell if it has a frame of just background or not...

 

Edit: Hmm... looking at that image again, there's a lot of motion in the background... and I also can't figure out how to save it as an image. -_-

That GIF won't work, as it doesn't have a frame of just background... And unfortunately, I don't think I have any Dramillion GIFs handy. :/  Although, there is a slight possibility that I could color-shift the entire thing to turn the center Dramillion purple, since the sky has an unrealistic amount of green in it...

I see all spots are open again, and mostly because the gifs don’t have a background only frame. Hmm, how about this? You post several gifs you find that match your requirements to edit then people can select which gif they want edited and tell you the color? Just sayin, it might work if you can find some gifs that work.
