The Daily Vapor
Another from the ancient series of Jungle/floral pictures.
Another step toward the still life: all keyframes are separated by a fraction of a frame, but the whole movement spans a little more
or less than a whole frame. Thus, flickering.
Noise, cycling at various speeds. Another element of the Still lIfe concept.
The flickering shape here will look different at different motion blur/clock ratios. This
is a test for a series of "Still Lifes", animations which are static but break down into movement.
500 random branches were dropped, and we fly around the pile.
Pink and Blue
More lofting, to build up the texture. here there are only two layers, but more will make this very dense.
Pink + Blue
Back in the water again .. this time, shapes with really short key frames wiggle across the screen.
The idea behind this is that at different perceptual speeds, the vibrating shapes turn into a smooth,
One of the things about vapor paint is that it uses floating point time, so its keyframes can be situated at a "fraction" of a frame. This comes in handy when motion blurring, since that actually deals with fractions of a frame.
I've found that zooming into a distorted video image is a pleasure.
I had this set of frames left over from Delicious Evening that were never used.. thought I'd wrap them around the screen.
Yes, some of the edge of the frame is in each gesture. This is using my own primative keying algorithm as well.
I wanted to make some 8x10s but I didn't get that far..
I'm back doing Frisket tests - Also avoiding black until I buy some new ink.

Word transformations are an important part of Vapor's history!
note: this is using the new H.264 compressor. You may need to get a new QuickTime to read it.
The Pencilly Look
here, Vapor is used for a faded pencilly look.
I'm working with a long format to see if I can make some nice looking long prints.
