Cinemagraphs were originally coined by American photographers, Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck of Ann Street Studio, who used this trick for their news and fashion photos back in 2011. It’s kind of a hybrid between a still photograph and a video. The whole image remains still except for a particular movement that is repeated over and over again in just one section. These are usually saved in a GIF format.
You can create a cinemagraph using editing software which would compose the photographs or the video frames into a seamless loop of sequential frames. It may take a bit of time but I believe cinemagraph is a form of art worth giving a chance.
