Not quite that soon, I think, because it will slow down at the mechanical floors.

Heh....I still don't get it. For security reasons? I think I missed a joke here.

That piece they are lifting on the crane looks like a crocodile, and why would they be putting a crocodile up there if not for security?

It still won't stop these two guys:

Ok, I get it. I just never saw anything that looked like a crocodile.

The heights are:

From Emaar: 134 Stories and 484.1 m
From dubaimegaprojects.com: 134 Stories and 486.81 m

So it's very high, but there's a difference of two meters between Emaar and Dubaimegaprojects.com.. they have the same number of stories so.. I'm confused

Great !

Here's a small first-try vid. I might do it a bit better later on.

Whole version (resized by dailymotion)
http://www.dailymotion.com/vinouz/video/3788653

Zoomed version (better)
http://www.dailymotion.com/vinouz/video/3788889

Zoomed with transitions (slower, can see)
http://www.dailymotion.com/vinouz/video/3789188

By the way, I think adding the precise hour of the day at which they are taken, as indicated in your original files (exif data), would be great to adapt precisely the delay between images and make a fade of proportional duration.

Do you still have that data ?

Thanks joobn,

Vincent.
