On Friday, June 15, GoPro published a mind blowing carousel of five animated GoPro action shots, that caught the “Likes” of nearly a quarter million Instagrammers within just 48 hours. Over 1.5 thousand amazed enthusiasts commented, asking how the effect was created and rapidly spread the news. The Featured Photographer in GoPro’s viral post is Troy Christopher Plota, who is also the creator of this never seen before effect. It is called a Plotagraph.

Troy was excited to reveal the motion trick behind the featured Plotagraphs and pointed out why they have a viral effect. “The fast-moving action, sand, cloud, and water environments in GoPro photos are a perfect combination for Plotagraph Troy explained in GoPro’s Instagram feature. “The ease of shooting on GoPro consistently brings content to the next level and captures action like no other camera.” The Plotagraphs show a seamless, never ending flow of kicked up dirt, ocean waves, and a baffling animation of a Hero 6 shot. The hypnotizing Plotagraph effect is created with only one single, still Hero 6 shot, and not multiple photos as one would assume
