After the first 2 hours of my nonstop sunsunsun marathon i was struck by a deep and profound insight. The turtle was going to die no matter how many times i watched it. I am sad.

An interpretation of the dream, you are dissatisfied with your life and are desperately seeking a new career path, you should continue to search til you find it or else you will remain dissatisfied.

you could reduce the size of this site drastically by using an mp3 and doing some background/foreground trickery.

good job none the less

I thought about both of those options, but:

1. I don't think mp3s can loop seamlessly.
2. Using animated GIFs in the foreground causes certain issues that I don't know how to solve. For instance, If I were to put the sun and the 4 guys with wands in the foreground, the animated pieces would have a thin, white border around them (something to do with the way transparencies in GIFs are processed?). It looks kinda sloppy, so I went with 1 GIF when I realized I could get it all in 1 GIF and under 8MB.

Apparently, APNGs are the solution to problem #2 - how do you make these kinds of files?

General questions to YTMND:

1. Can you compress WAV files?
2. How do you make APNGs?
3. Does Sylvester Stallone do his own stunts?

Site sponsorship for the first YTMNDer with all 3 correct answers.

1. They can. There is a misconception here because YTMND lists the length of mp3 files incorrectly. Now, for shorter sound files I normally use wav's just because, but for a site of this length an mp3 should have no issues. Use audacity and zoom in like a mother fucker to get it exactly the length you want.
See:
chipschallenge.ytmnd.com

2. Animated GIFs don't support partial transparencies. What you most likely saw was your editor doing anti-aliasing, which GIFs don't like on their transparencies, hence white border. Remember that gifs are palette based, so they should have all one color for the transparency. This site has a good explanation for what I just said and also answers number 2 from your next set of questions:

1. Yes and no. A quick conversion you can do for the wav you've got is make it mono, which will half the file size without much noticeable difference. You can also reduce the sample rate from 44100, which will reduce the size again (but can cause a difference in the way it sounds.) Converting to 22050 and making mono got your wav down to 1.26MB (I used audacity.) Sound files aren't compressible usually, without changing the format.

2. You have to make the PNG frames in a separate editor, but there are several tools available. See this from a previous question.

3. Yes he does, but he is reconsidering after an incident during the filming of The Expendables.

on a side note, i noticed your .wav is 29.987 sec long and your gif is 29.84 sec long
