So, while stumbling around looking for a Gif host, I found GifSoup…
Instead of uploading my animated Movie file to Zamzar’s free file conversion service, & having them convert to Gif file for me, then emailing me the file, then having to upload that Gif file to a host somewhere, then getting embed codes from there & embedding them…Well, sigh, I actually never made it that far…
In the middle of my search I found a Better Way!
Ok, at Gifsoup.com all you do is paste in the Youtube url of an animated movie you have made…For free, you get a 10 second Gif, & you can choose which part of your film to select…
They then give you several options including embed codes, which totally work on WordPress as you can see!
Ok, for $5, you get a month on GifSoup, which I am going to try…(it is less for longer, like 25 for a year)…So that is how the Gif looks like without advertising…
Defrag your Mac: To defragment is to take all those little files & stick them into one big bag, which saves tons of space…I used iDefrag…It costs 30 dollars, or you can demo for free & it will tell you what it could do…The stats are remarkable-for me it said it could compress 4 gigabytes into 1.6 gigabytes…So I bought it after reading other favorable reviews…Easy to set up, you leave it run overnight…That’s all…Your computer will run faster, like it was new again…(Note:CPU Speed Accelerator is a nifty app I have mentioned before that also will speed up your Mac)…
Blender 3d animation tip: If you are going to add hair in Particle Physics & also do some Texture painting, Add the Hair FIRST…This saves alot of headaches later…When you do the texture painting first then add the hair, you might end up losing your painting & your figure ends up just all in black…There is a workaround for this, but it is far more elegant just to add your hair first!

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She
never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
topic but I had to tell someone!
That is a great tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.
Short but very precise information… Appreciate your
sharing this one. A must read post!
