Hour of Target Polygons

This is a video I made with my programming. There were 108000 frames in total. The framerate is 30 per second and the total number of frames was designed to be 30*60*60 or 108000 to be exactly an hour long. The result was that it took the program a long time to generate the frames but then they were encoded to a video with this command.

ffmpeg -r 30 -f image2 -i o/%08d.bmp -vcodec libx264 -preset veryslow -crf 23 -pix_fmt yuv420p o/v.mp4

This one does target polygons including stars. In the future I will do a similar one with only a single polygon XORed with the checkerboard.
What impressed me about this one is that the resulting video file was only 200MB. This is because monochrome images compress so well!
