Dear Diary...

Chaser play


A little GIMP art, to emulate a five point chaser.

Below the break, to avoid driving casual readers batty.

Animated GIMP version of a sign chaser.

This is a 5-layer animation, illustrating a “3-on 2-off” lamp configuration.

Construction details for those interested:
