@randynose this is pretty rad. how are they getting the different movements?
different rates of spin?
@randynose I think with the directional movement they're just moving the arrows. but IDK about the shrinking / growing ones.
@randynose This is fake.
I extracted every frame.
Everything was changed frame-by-frame.
The moving around, growing/shrinking, everything.
Don't believe me?

Inspect the frames yourself located in the frames/ directory.
Well, if I put the mouse pointer on the edge of the Circle, it doesn't appear to move from the pointer.
@randynose I've reviewed the frames probably 6 times now. Either this is a very good illusion that it's fooled me 7 times, or it's fake.
Not trying to be confrontational here, I just realized how it sounds.
I'm just really skeptical about this.
@randynose If you repeatedly blink you will be able to see circles aren't actually moving. It's very weird...
@person Kind of makes sense, if you're blinking at the same rate that the images are being processed / displayed.
