Tas_mania: if I ever get through Photomaster's cube without error's I'll ask for instructions on your forest cube. Really nice!


Thanks PAT625. It's an exercise in concentration. :hehe At least you got a result. I was doubting PhotoMaster's tut
thinking there was a puzzle in it but it was just my inability to read instructions properly.

I have never been able to solve Rubiks cube either.

Tas_mania that's great man, I dig your graphene in alcohol pattern as well.
I've spent a week at this, and even with PhotoMaster's kind and patient help, I can't get it. I know I'm misreading steps 15 - 34 somehow.
I'm renaming the layers 1- 36
following steps 17 - 24
then repeating 35 more times - each time I'm renaming the Rubiks cube layer (top layer after running script) 1, 2, 3, and so on, dragging, in turn onto previously saved image.
If any of you think you can help I would be most grateful. I'm determined to crack this one after spending so much time trying and trying. Thank you. :gaah

The animation goes from the inner cube outwards. If you do it right you will take a revolving inner cube up to the next revolving cube which carries it and so on.
I was failing to copy-paste my layers into their right sequence. For example the copied layer 6 goes into the number six layer.
The copied number 7 does into the number 7 slot and so on. There is a lot of counting of keystrokes involved.

I was dragging/pasting all layers into the number 1 slot. When that happens the previous cube stops rotating.
This is like the original Rubiks cube - a test of people's patience and determination. Good luck. :clap

I just got a program to create video tutorials, so when I play with it I will try to make this into a video tutorial.

Hi PhotoMaster.
I modified the Rubik's Cube script by Graechan to not have segments.
This does not qualify as a new script because it's just a minor edit.

So people can use both scripts I called it 'No-Rubiks-Cube.scm' and uploaded here:

This is an experimental 'quad nested animation'. Optimized it's still 3.6Mb. I discovered that converting animated GIFs to WEBM
reduces them by a large amount. Not sure how to work with the webm format and it looks like the
gimp chat 'advanced editor' doesn't either :)

This is not my easiest tutorial, but you learn a whole lot about layers!

For anyone who's gif file is too large, while in your finished xcf file, go to
Filters> Animation> Optimize for GIF
This will erase unneeded (duplicated) areas of some layers and give you a much smaller file with all the same data.

I finally finished my second attempt at the tripled nested cube and I hope there are no problems with it. I could not find any, so please let me know.
