Animated JPG Demo
One of the many features of the Mavica FD71 is the Multiple
Exposure Mode. It provides for making 9 exposures in rapid succession
on one "sheet", to form the basis for an animation.
With the proper software one could then make an animated

apart and then constructing the animation. An ingenious freeware
program, called Animator-9 has now made this unnecessary.
It makes it possible to display the animation on a web page by
constructing a Java Applet, a process that reduces the file size
significantly so it will load quicker. The entire process takes
just a few easy minutes. The program also allows for saving
the animation as a JPG file.
This is the end result:
The author of the program, Paul
Law of Hong Kong also has a site, well worth visiting for
those who are interested in that city as well as in digital photography.
