An experiment with time remap. In fact just changed the cam : it was filmed with a Canon 7D at 60fps, making it really more smooth !
it was recorded as a funny pause while working on the performance "Cinematique" (vimeo.com/amcb/cinematique)... but this short dance is actually not in the show.
You can try it in real time in an exhibition called XYZT (vimeo.com/amcb/xyzt).
Just to explain : we have not invented this effect, we have just developed it to work on GPU at 60fps as a Quartz Composer plug in, it is based on sculpting of a 3D texture.
It's made with a custom Quartz Composer plug-in that transform a video stream in a 3D texture.
It can run at 60fps live at lower resolution (1024x512)
AFAIK the effect was discovered accidentally by a photograph called Jacques Henri Lartigues at the beginning of the 20th century (in 1912 to be precise) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Henri_Lartigue, with this famous photo : bokeh.fr/blog/photographes/la-voiture-deformee-de-jacques-henri-lartigue/
After it's just technical evolutions : photography->video->realtime video
The funny part is that rolling shutter of many camera is not a feature, it's a pretty annoying effect...
