I do not understand what the beta test is trying to show in this case.
@BellaJ The gif doesn't show up really, but check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_movement
It basically just says that we don't sense movement because our physical eyeballs track shapes, it's essentially an "optical illusion" brought on by our brain naturally associating images with one another. So a series of still images like in the slide can imply a snake moving around the screen even if they have nothing to do with each other.
I saw this a couple weeks ago https://www.asciimation.co.nz/
I think its really interesting how prior experience can influence your perception of animation as well. Like someone who has never seen starwars would probably perceive this different than I do.
@BellaJ Yeah, a lot gets lost in the conversion to static webpages. :-) This was indeed the kind of animation @merc mentions.
@Log For me it's more about audio than visuals. I seriously hear in my head James Earl Jones shouting, "And bring me the passengers, I want them alive!" Trippy.
