A new trick has been circulating among gif creators that allows them to create animated images with a convincing 3D aspect. The trick is simple but deceptive – these gifs’ creators use white lines to split the images into 3 panels. That way, elements of the animated images can “pop” out of the frame in front of the white lines and toward the viewer.
