The Making of "Julie" by Nuance

category: general [glöplog]
Hello guys. Some of you asked for a "making of" about the short Video "Julie" we did for this years Breakpoint. You can get it from:


Its nothing fancy but the interested ones of you can take a peek how the whole thing was done.

The text is poorly formed and spelling appears to be a skill, but the info is really neat. Nice gesture there!

yeah interesting, specially for the quite affordable budget :)

a newbie question to cosmic: i guess you've used a burst mode to trigger your camera ?

aftu: thanks for your interest. We turned the disc VERY slow. the poor girl had to hold their breath ;) no if you look closely you can see her breathe. that wasnt reasonable at that speed and as you can see she was wearing a corsage. so in the end we had 4000 photos of her that were all shot in the burst mode.

Damn, I missed that one. Awesome looking work (no sound here, I'll rewatch properly later), and fascinating doc you've put together there. I'm looking forwards to v2 :)

Interesting - thanks for documenting it!

Now I wonder how to use this as a small budget 3d scanner, thus producing vertex/voxel data

TS: voxel colouring.

I did some test in a similar way ~8 years ago. In the back of a cilindrical drinking glass I glued a D&D miniature. Then I placed milimetred paper al arround the glass. I used a flat scanner to do scan several angles of it, helping me with the milimetred paper for the hand-made rotation - at that time, digital cameras were not a common thing, this is why I used the scanner instead. Also, to mantain the glass steady in a position, I used some big books. I added also a green background.

It worked very good... but I lost all the files :(

Today there are very good programs to do photo to 3d, some completely automatic, other human-aided. I suggest you to try these if you really need good and fast results. Else, if you just want to try for fun, then I can tell you it was a really fun thing to try... my results were far from good, but a lot of fun.

*note: if you use a camera, then you need to calibrate it for voxel coloring... and it is not an easy task. The flat scanner thing is a parallel proyection, so it is much easier that way
