On Monday, we told you about a new program called Flixel for Mac which makes the cinema graph process very easy. Over in the Photofocus forums, a reader (Bruce Goren) told me about a similar program from Windows. Microsoft Research (a test group inside Microsoft) has been experimenting with what they call Cliplets.
Microsoft Research Cliplets is an interactive app that gives users the power to create "Cliplets" — a type of imagery that sits between stills and video, including imagery such as video textures and "cinemagraphs". The app provides a simple, yet expressive way to mix static and dynamic elements from a video clip.
You can try out the beta software for free (and this one is Windows only). ______
