I keep seeing these pop up in my feeds…’Cinemagraphs’ – a posh way of saying a looping gif. So I thought I would try one out. As I have not bought a photo manipulation program this decade.. this was done on Image Ready CS2. A simple mask on the area of movement and away we go.
So here is Eckie in my village hall, counting himself in – forever!
Counting in the song forever…
Another track from Richard – this time ‘Winter’
Another one – this time an Amy Winehouse song…
Same encoding except out of Edius4 having done the FX and audio ,ix on timeline – out to HDV Express plugin to M2t file (Canon 25F) version. Through Procoder3 to the H264 Mpeg4 640×480 mono 1 Pass
And this is what it looks like from blip.tv
Pretty pleased with the close mic’ing and the sound we got…This the one from Youtube. So encoded by their servers into Flash MX automatically. (200k/s). But the input was a 1 pass MPEG4 640×340 (H264)- audio 128/44hz Mono (44mb)
Trying to get close to 1mbps. So it should look nice….
and the scaled down one from Blip.tv – do click on it to see the full res. Which you can download off the site too.
First single from Richard Ecclestone’s debut album – ‘Punchdrunk’ filmed in Norwich 2003.
Filmed with a single Sony VX1000 with a wide adaptor for the overhead shots.
The boxes shots were shot one at a time with the musicans miming to playback on their own, then put together in the edit.
Showing how an edit progresses – this is the first Interlaced version of what went live. (Before the de-interlacing through AE I believe)Encoded On2 VP6 Flash8 512×384 44/128 audio 2 pass keyframe every 25
