Here is my 1st age-reduction Vfx TEST in Nuke.
I've decided not to apply any facial markers, to challenge myself (and make my life more difficult).
It's a 100% work in 2D space. There are a few things i would like to improve, but I felt like it was time to move on. A big thanks to the beautiful actress Michele Valley, who trusted me with putting a Nip-Tuck spell on her image. imdb.com/name/nm0885091/
Eyedropper Fill Visual Lab presents ‘A MAN WITHOUT CAMERA LENS’
We are always focusing on experimenting possibilities. In our experimental lab, we have usually found that some of the result has never been used or presented as a part of the final outcome; we like to call these materials as “the sketch of ideas.” Looking it more closely, these fragmental ideas could extend to other things, so we have created our new project: Eyedropper Fill Visual Lab. It is aimed to study all those sketches of ideas, and construct their forms more concretely, serving as a research lab which the experiment may cross with other disciplines, e.g. live performance, sound, moving image, workshop, product, etc. We will let the curiosity and experimental process lead us to any form of the result.
"A Man Without Camera Lens" statement
In the age that photography is part of our everyday life, a beautiful image can be created by just only one tap on our smart phones. It allows us to edit our photos easily by using application. Despite this simplicity, we wondered and came up with a question “how can photography be more challenging?” So we went back to look at the different parts of the camera. And we found out that we are interested in one of the most important parts of it which is the “Lens”. Then we came up with another question, “If there were no lens, how else can we possibility take a photo?”
“A MAN WITHOUT CAMERA LENS” is the first set of an experiment from Eyedropper Fill Visual Lab. We brought ourself back to the age when there were no lens. This lead to 3 different experiments. In each experiment, an object is used instead of lens, which are hand, a magnifier glass and a spirograph. These experimental videos are presented in a style of scientific educational video which we are familiar with, back in our childhood period. The techniques to these experiments are opened up for anybody who are inspired by the videos to try out and have fun.
This video explores how to setup a Houdini crowd system to accept stylesheet code. It also demonstrates different stylesheet implementations. The first stylesheet overrides material parameters on the current material. The second stylesheet swaps out the entire material itself. The stylesheet overrides are controlled by targeting via groups. If an agent appears in the targeted group then it's material will be affected.
