    i have a 6s plus and have been trying live photos and have noticed on every photo when I press to animate it has a blur at the beginning of the animation. The built in ones don't show this

    Does anyone else have this? I find it really annoying :(

    It blurs into the live's just a way of telling you that it's transitioning into the live photo.

    Super annoying, makes them look like mistakes.

    Its trying to mask the loading time.

    It seems that each photo creates a .mov file so that blur is probably hiding where they go from the jpg to loading the .mov

    It's a transition effect done by Apple since the photo itself is not the starting point of the video, the whole thing will just feel weird if there is no transition.

    Maybe they'll change the transition as it looks awful to me to do this and all the more jarring by the fact their supplied images don't do it.

    Because the live photo of fish starts at the very beginning. Your photos are mid start and mid in. It's in between the animated photos.

    The new motion (fish and smoke) wallpapers aren't technically Live Photos. They were specifically designed to showcase 3D Touch. They are very different to an actual Live Photo. 1: They are high quality, 2: 60fps, 3: Play from begining to end while you're pressing in, and then play in revers back to the begining once you let go.
