Real time processing of video

Thursday, July 17, 2008

Continuing with experiments in generating random organic illustrations using Flash and ActionScript. This time processing video in realtime.

To create the short looping example video below, the flash movie output each frame of the 47frames as a still BMP. The ‘brush’ shapes were changed on the fly by using a drag bar. The final stills were then stuck together in AfterEffect (using no other treatments) to create the final output.

Video stills can be found on FlickR here:
