Use Firefox to make your own flipbook animation
(Instructions for PC users)
1. Find a source of chronologically ordered images (webcams are great), like this one
of Olavinlinna Castle in Finland
2. Using middle-mouse button (or click-wheel), click on the image links in order (in the example, from the bottom up), opening up each image in a new tab.
3. When you have enough (10 or more) images open in tabs, close the first tab.
4. Hold down the Ctrl+Tab keys - Firefox will cycle swiftly through the tabs: Your very own flipbook animation. (If you want to reverse it, hold down Ctrl+Shift+Tab)
You could probably do the same in Safari or with FF on a Mac, but I have no idea if the flipping speed is decent, nor what the control keys are (for new tabs, and tab-switching)
