Animated using Artmatic software on an Apple MacBook Pro in 2010. Involves some fractal elements. This sort of animation is rendered frame by frame to TIFF stills at 30fps. These are then compiled into motion video and the soundtrack is added. I use Apple Quicktime 7 Pro for this. At this point the video is still lossless and the files are huge. The video is then compressed using Handbrake for online viewing.
