Well, I worked all night last night. Got about a wink of sleep. I noted yesterday that I was doing wire removal on after effects. It’s too bad that I can’t post anything from the movie because I would’ve totally considered that my creative thing for the day. I’d never done wire removal before and there was a nice sense of satisfaction afterwards looking at your final shot all cleaned up.
Because of my rough schedule I decided to take some of my old footage and see what it looked like with the slit-scan effect. And what better subject matter for slit-scan than time itself. I took some of the raw shots from my “Day 186 / Time” posting and put them through my slit-scan factory after effects project. I have been dissapointed in the past with the aliasing from my 2-pixel thick experiments that I decided to use the first comp I ever created which is 1920 x 1080, 1080 layers of 1 pixel thick slits. That means not only greater resolution but also 47 seconds of time from top to bottom. (Just a reminder, if you don’t know what slit-scan is and would like to know check my first post on the subject)
I’m intrigued by the results. Because many of the gears move in a staccato-like way there is extreme banding happening in some. The slower gears morph more like my previous examples. I think the faster gears might be more interesting when I’ve finally rendered a moving example.
The circle is also an interesting shape for slit-scan because it works in much the same way whether I’m using horizontal or vertical. Check out the short video demo I did below of the pocket watch. Watch the second hand twist around the face of the watch. I think its pretty cool.
NOTE: I will be rendering out more of the shots you can see above overnight tonight. So, the video will be revised with those shots once they’re done. Those will be full 1920 x 1080 so the rendering time can be pretty long.
