Request: Time lapse


#1

I use the wallpaper generator at http://hexagenic.net/wanikaniwallpaper-js/ to generate a wallpaper for my second monitor periodically.  One thing I regret not doing is saving a copy of it every day, so that some time in the future I could build a time-lapse movie. It would be interesting to see each level a splash of pink items showing up, and then gradually turning color and sometimes popping back to pink, all the while more and more items get filled in and eventually turn to white.

Is there enough info in the database to do that retroactively?

Unfortunately, no.  You can get info about when an item was unlocked, and what it's current status is.  There's no information about what happened in-between.

I’m actually doing this manually. I don’t remember to do it every day, and I did not start on day one, but I have 96 snapshots saved so far. Would be awesome if it could be done automatically, but such a thing is so much beyond me that it is indestinguishable from magic.

I look forward to doing my own WK-history movie some day though, and I also kind of enjoy the manual labor.

LMAO! I thought I was the only super nostalgic nerdy weirdo. Oh wait. WaniKani. That’s Right. I have been using the wallpaper generator and saving every few weeks and then loading it into google assistant to make an animation. This is what I have so far. https://goo.gl/photos/5p7nz8BkeS92tuWA8

Nice! I haven't made any animation as of yet. Gonna wait a bit longer I guess :-)

I have been doing the same thing! I started at level 6 and downloaded a wallpaper at the start of every level since then (so 22 in total so far). 
Would like to make it into an animation somehow someday.
For now, I just go through the picture manually to see my progress, which is a nice motivation boost. 

EDIT: I also used Google to make an animation (thanks for the tip Arayalight :slight_smile: )

Pydron, that is so inspiring! I just started level 9, but it is super cool to literally see your progress. I use the wallpaper generator, but I would never have the time to stop and save pictures of it like that. Pretty cool to see yours, though!

Nice, Pydron and Arayalight, that’s exactly what I had in mind!
