Lorenzo Alberton's Blog:
Create a video preview as animated GIF with FFmpeg and PHP SPL
September 04, 2009 @ 09:52:50

Lorenzo Alberton has posted a new item to his blog with a code snippet showing the combination of FFmpeg and features in PHP's SPL to make a GIF preview.

About one year ago, I had to create animated GIFs as a preview of a video for a media portal. I recently stumbled upon the code I wrote and thought it was probably worth sharing. It makes a rather unconventional use of the SPL Iterators, proving how flexible they are.

His method combines Imagick, FFmpeg and a a Thumbnail_Extractor class that extends the SPL Iterator. The script runs through the frames of the movie file and allows you to define multiple places to pull thumbnails from. Complete code and output examples are included.

Mikko Koppanen:
Requested examples Animating GIF Images
October 10, 2007 @ 09:32:00

At the request of another developer, Mikko Koppanen has written up a post for his blog today showing how to create animated GIFs in PHP with Imagick.

Today's example was requested by a user called Devo. This example illustrates making an animated GIF image by creating the frames from scratch. It's been so long since I've really drawn anything so I decided to use text as the base for this animation.

His example ends up as a string ("Hello World") that's animated to show one more letter at a time as each frame loads.

making a radar loop with PHP
September 07, 2006 @ 13:36:21

On the Technobabbler blog, there's a quick look at their creation of a (weather) radar loop they could view on their cell phone.

I used the great mobile site from the NWS, but it still didn't give me the effect I wanted. And hey, I'm already filling a database with weather observations and radar images! So I decided to see what it would take to make a custom radar loop that I could get to at any given moment. The Treo can display animated gif files, so that seemed like the most efficient solution. The question is, how do we create an animated gif using PHP?

To answer the question, he found this script ("GIF images into animated GIF with native PHP class") and used it to create a simple script to grab the GIF images and combine them into a single animated image suitable for viewing in any browser. He includes the script used to generate it as well as an example of the result and how it looks on the phone.
