Motion backgrounds are becoming a growing trend for high-end websites or even templated websites that want to wow viewers with a little something extra that the competition may not have caught on to yet.
Motion backgrounds are basically video backgrounds, or a short video clip that loops seamlessly and automatically plays when a viewer clicks on a site. Some of the best motion backgrounds are seamless loops that the viewer may not even realize are looping. This might involve creating motion graphics to add effects to the video clip in order to bring the video back to the beginning of the loop without the viewer noticing. Below is an example of a seamless motion background we created that has a minuscule file size because the video clip has a lower frame rate than usual and a run time of only ten seconds.
Here’s another example of a moving background. This one uses a landscape photo and separates the layers to create a 3D effect from a flat photograph. Again, the motion background seamlessly loops back to itself.
Another option for a motion background is with a portrait.
The options are fairly limitless; it just depends on what type of photo you’re starting from and the client’s needs. Contact us for a quote today.
