Excellent image Pat! Everything looks right on the money!!

This tutorial can be quite confusing (Sorry) and you got it!

Racer-X,
Love the scratching head cube!

Racer-X was Speed Racer's brother if memory serves?

Racer-X was Sped Racer's brother, but I choose that login because I'm an ex-Racer. I used to dragrace motorcycles back in the day.

Your tut is well done, but I never follow directions. Choosing instead to get inspired to make my own version. I used the regular Cube filter, because I don't like the lines. Unless there's a way to disable them? I have little experience with Gimp, but that will soon change as I'm 100 % Linux these days.

Now for something a little different.

I used to race bicycles with the United States Cycling Federation. Many, many years ago!

That's how I learned most of what I know. You just need something to simply spark an idea and then decide to find a way to do what you want! And I can see that this is what you do! Very creative work!

Congratulations on this. :jumpclap
Looks like you dropped a frame or two. I dropped a frame on my last one and had to reduce it down to 35 layers.
Thats probably about as 'forgiving' as this process is. :gaah
I remembered a lot of GIF optimization involves deleting layers.
It's pretty hard to put a layer back after accidentally deleting it.

GIFs get a pretty bad rap on the net these days but it's not exactly easy to make an MP4
or a WEBM video clip loop outside of whatever player a user is viewing it on.

A script to automate the 'triple nested animation' could possibly just process one phase and apply
drop shadow and the 36 replacement layers in the correct series.
Rotations and backgrounds could be done manually and then the script could be run on the next phase.
Maybe one day.......

Looking good!! This process is kind of drawn out and there must be a dozen ways to drop a layer or create an extra blank layer. I've done it myself many times. I would drop those two blanked out layers. The impact shouldn't be much of anything and it actually looks like they may only be extra layers. If they are just extra layers, then there will only be a positive impact because your image would be 100%!.

I am thinking about scripting it, but I haven't coded in a few years and it would take me a little bit to get started again. Being very lazy right now. Only just recently getting back my Gimp creativity after a couple of years out of commision.

Very cool! I still ride my Mountain Bike 5 miles a day for exercise. No chance I'd enter in a race with it however. :)

Since you like my "head Scratching GIF", here ya go. Use it at will.

RJKD, I really like your animation. Your "glitch" looks like what I did the first time. Very easy to do. I kept counting and recounting all the time the second time around so I could find it before I went to the next phase. You did a good job.
