bradofarrell: I love how stiff Korra’s movements are compared to Aang’s. But it’s not because of bad animation. It’s because of good animation.

I made a video but I’m not going to upload it until tomorrow morning I did end up using imagemagick
frezned: DIFFERENT TACK there is no way wrangling through LZW is gonna be worth it my main objection to ImageMagick is that it requires creating intermediary files rather than operating entirely within memory but I realise, I could get Python Image to save each frame individually to a .gif - but save to in-memory string streams instead of to files! then I could yank out the already-encoded...
