% Barrier-grid animation (a.k.a.picket-fence animation or
% kinegram) is an animation effect created by moving a striped transparent
% overlay across an interlaced image.
% [encodedAnimation, venetianBlindsPattern] = barrier_grid_animation...
% (transparentColumnWidth, animationFolder)
% [OPTIONAL INPUTS]
% transparentColumnWidth Integer to indicate the width of the
% transparent columns (default: 4)
% animationFolder Folder where the individual frames are stored.
% These should be black and white pictures, a number
% between 2 and 6 images works fine in most
% situations (default: current)
% encodedAnimation Image to be printed on white paper (2D matrix)
% venetianBlindsPattern Image to be printed on a transparent medium (2D matrix)

“In the early 2,000’s, a version of Barrier Grid Animation called “Scanimation®” was popularized by Rufus Butler Seder in such children’s books as “GALLOP!” and “STAR WARS.”
