Leaving the index would distract from BD and spoil the composition in my opinion. Free to you to do it.

Still, the original version I do is a vertical video with a 800*1200 resolution. But dailymotion resizes it to fit in a horizontal 320x200 small window. Hence the zoomed version.

Yes, they're going too quick. That's why I did the last version. But remember that the point will be on the long run, from now until end 2009, if joobn permits.

Hopefully I'll enhance the little quirks as time goes. Like precise rotation/crop setting, better exposition matching, better and more precise fades.

Still, this first try seems promising .

All images courtesy of Joobn. Thanks again man !

Difference is 2 meters, or less then one floor, maybe dubaimegaprojects relased that news few hours after Emaar (during that time, Burj got bigger)!

You're doing pretty well so far dude. There are people on here from English speaking countries who don't do as well, so no worries.

Nice night pics. Something like 10 new glass panels on the "front" side. When they catch the pace it will go fast...

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.
The transition is barely noticeable, which supports my opinion that it's pointless to include pics from every day.

When there is a long period of time it will make sense. More data points is always better than fewer, I'm not sure why you are so opposed to having one every day when it costs NOTHING to do, and it is not you who is doing the work. Anyway, it's useless to make any conclusions over a 1 week movie span.

but inbetween the succesfull figure of 509 m is the 5th mech floors so it will take longer than 2 weeks... such a shame
