YAY! 100%-Princess-Luna-ANIMATED-Comic!

:bulletgreen:EDIT 2:
●Featured in Equestria Daily, Saturday, June 16, 2012
●Corrected some grammatical errors (Thanks to ~Heretic-Sage for the current English and ~acvcritter for the Elizabethan English)

:bulletgreen:EDIT: Replaced with a smaller version (Still Big, 5.5MB). If for some reason you want the bigger 20 MB version, you can find it HERE .

Now. Remember my previous comic? That time I said: "This one took more (both time and work) of what I had thought when I first started it. I made more vectors and modifications to the existing ones in a single panel than my whole previous comic!"

Maybe that one was a Huge, Meta, Clever comic. THIS one, however, should be cataloged as a Film!:

●~Chalcedonian's "Luna Giggle" with eyes modified to look to the right.
●~Myythic's "Princess Luna"
●~90Sigma's "Shocked Princess Luna"
My own "Luna Philosophizing"
●The PEGASUS laptop is based on a real laptop. The most difficult part? The keys.
●The Wind OS Heaven Login Screen is a modified version of the Windows Server 2008 Login Screen, decorated with ~exe2001's "Cloud Shape 1", and Celestia's User Account picture has *BlackGryph0n's "Princess Celestia Cutie Mark"
●"Celestia's desktop" is a screenshot of my own desktop, and yes, that wallpapaer is my Elite Beat Agents Wallpaper; it doubles as "watermark" too (see my icon), and it is the one I'm currently using. I'm not (too) lazy! I made this comic!
●The "shorcut" to EQD icon is ~he4rtofcourage's "Chrome-poni"
●The Equestrian Day Cycle was made with, you already saw it, Stellarium (Not to be confused with Celestia, another astronomical program), and for the landscape, a mix of ~Kishmond's "At The Gala" and ~MLP-Vector-Collabs' "Group Background #1". The composite image can be downloaded here and the Landscape File as is used in Stellarium, here, with instructions.
My own "Princess Celestia's Room" and one of the reasons I spent so much time in this comic (the other was I was out of town, but that doesn't matter...)
●I had the idea of the Computer-Controlled Day during "Lesson Zero", where Twilight sees the sun moving as if it were a clock; In Stellarium, you can do the same by pressing "Ctrl + =". Then, the idea evolved from trolling Twilight to somepony breaking the mechanism (the laptop).
●The idea of a Gamer Luna has been addressed in other comics. Then I thought "Let's have Luna playing 'a game'" and then this comic was born.
●The Dialog. Or actually a Monologue, was a tricky part. Not only this is the most text-extensive comic I have made, but it was particularly difficult since I wanted Luna speak with Elizabethan English. YE SHALL TELL US IF SOMETHING ISN'T CORRECTLY SPELLED!.
●There are two "animations" in this comic: Celestia's Room and the Exterior View. I intended these were synchronized, so if it's 2:00pm inside the castle, in the outside the sun must be high in the sky. That was the easy part, since both animations are made of 24 frames, I just paired the respective frames from the inside with those from the outside.
●The shallow focus, as seen in "Put your hoof down" when Fluttershy locks herself inside her house, was both visual candy and a device to shift the attention from Luna to the computer between Panels 2 and 3.
●I realized that Celestia's Room needed more contrast: the dark room looks better than a well lit room. The shadows are just a black and white layer blended with "Overlay"; white for lights and black for shadows. Again GIMP 2.8's Layers Folders came in handy.
●The shadows in Celestia's Room were simulated in Google Sketchup, and this helped both the illumination of the room and the pairing with the Stellaruim time stamps.
●If you try Stellarium, you should make the same that Luna did; the arrow keys actually are for looking around. And you will know what causes several J J J J J J J presses by now...
●Since this is a GIF animation, I had to change manually to Indexed Mode in order to better manage the color loss. Floyd-Steinberg Dithering was used. A 40ms delay between frames and the "combine" method for the animation.

I really hope all of you found this comic worthy. It really was a pain in the flank...
