Animated Snowfall in GIMP GAP by fence-post Animated Snowfall in GIMP GAP by fence-post
December 21, 2009: I've created a script that will create the animation in just a couple of clicks! You can view/download it here: fence-post.deviantart.com/art/…

Here's a nifty little tutorial for creating animated snowfall using GIMP GAP (GIMP Animation Package), which is a separate download from GIMP. The tutorial is written for people with an intermediate level of GAP usage, but I include a lot of screenshots and narrative to help out those who are still a bit new to the process. I certainly don't mind helping out you newbies, but please keep in mind that this is really intended for intermediate GIMP users.

The stock for the tutorial was obtained here: www.deviantart.com/deviation/3… I received approval from the stock image creator to host this tutorial with his stock outside of GIMP (I've used a significantly scaled down version in the tutorial). However, downloading this tutorial does not give you rights to use the stock image for other purposes. You are only to use this stock for learning purposes. It's your responsibility to obtain approval from the creator before using elsewhere.

This tutorial is in html format. Download the zip file to a convenient location and extract all the files/folders to a convenient folder on your hard drive (ie..desktop) and then double-click the html file and you should be able to view it in your favorite browser from the comfort of your own home.

Let me know if you see any problems that need correcting. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing your outcome.

Until then, Happy GIMP-ing!

grasshopper is confused by red I guess. But I am going to work on it soon and hopefully that was all it was.

It appears you covered everyting. I am going to give this a try. I feel like I can I have all the tools to do it and I have been using Gimp for years. So I should be able to do it with the straight forward instructions you gave.

So you want to see it Well since you did it first I am going to put it in scraps but you can see it there when I am done. I hope it is as easy as you make it seem. I will find out.

It will be my first animation if it works out and then I can conquer the world. Hmmm,Hmmmm ,sorry I get a little carried away.

Just a quick question before you get started....have you downloaded the most recent version? I just updated it a couple of minutes ago due to my dufus-ness (it's my word for the hour!) Make sure the version you have works properly (there were a couple of broken links and I adjusted the speed at the suggestion of my buddy, Sean-Michael - he thinks hailstorms are bad! :D )

Well, good luck with it. I've tried to make it as painless as possible and provide enough detail about the why's and how's. Let me know if you have any questions.

BTW, don't conquer the world too soon. That's probably a lot of stress on yourself!

Cheers!

No conquering the world could be fun but you would be a free man so no worries. Thanks for the heads up. I will download it again so I can have the best version.

take care

Shoot! If I'm getting a free pass, don't stop with conquering this world, take over Mars too before they get to us first!

Sorry to everyone that's downloaded this thing and found it to not work properly. I'm a real dufus today. It's finally fixed correctly and running properly. Please forgive my stupidity.

Looks very smooth Art*

Only thing is my first interpretation was that it looked a lil like a hail storm, I would slow down the snow just a little but this is awesome work and much better then my first try at it!

Thanks Sean_Michael. I fixed the preview and the the information in the tutorial so it would be slowed down. I also had to resubmit the whole file because of another broken image link. I'm a dufus!
