  • Pros: 

    The idea is good


    rendering takes 16~24hrs and the rendered item is unusable. very bad

    when you want to save the gif, rendering takes upto 24hrs and the saved

    GIF is unusable.

@nitin_muthyala Good question. I've personally met the lead designers from Google and yes, if a team feels like picking up an idea during or after a huge project to free their mind; they indulge themselves in building product they want. Fun-work to be able to get paid to build what you like while making a small change. Am I right or am i right? ;)

@nitin_muthyala Like a lot of companies now days Google developers are allowed a certain number of hours per month to spend on pet projects. This allows developers to innovate in ways that aren't possible when they have to do feasibility studies to prove a project has a need, solves a real problem and has a ROI.

@aichholzer IMHO finding ways to make data easier to understand and funnier to look at is quite important :)

@aichholzer Email marketing or indeed, any kind of digital marketing would be a great use case!

@aichholzer Just a try... maybe it could be useful to record on a gif the evolution of some real time dashboard data. Like recording the evolution over time of the number of connections to a website for 2 different browsers. You select your two dataseries and record/stop. The output is a gif you can present instead of a table.

I can see this being very popular in news stories in the future. Cannot get the things to render when I've tested it, but I can definitely see its promise.
