How to make a Cinemagraph with Photoshop and After Effects

When Kert Gartner posted a Cinemagraph I was intrigued, however when he stated that it took a lot longer than he imagined, I then hoped that he would do a tutorial of the process because I also thought that it would be a simple thing! And he did! If you are unfamiliar, the term Cinemagraph is a new one describing a cross between a still image and a few frames of a video using the old school animated GIF format. Check out some Cinemagraphs here.

There are some other tutorials on creating Cinemagraphs, one by Travis from the Blog The Way I See it -here, and another by Fernando Jbaez that can be found here.

Kert mentions: “It’s not quite a video | A Cinemagraph | It’s not quite a Photograph In this tutorial we take a look at how to make a Cinemagraph with Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. Cinemagraphs, a term coined by Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg are not quite photographs, and not quite video. They straddle a line somewhere in between. “
