Cross Section Objects for Light Painting

  1. Nice shot. Yes there's a PC version of Solid Works. No I don't do it frame by frame. I devised a method of making it semi-automatic. I used 16:9 aspect ratio because it's the most universal: It can be used with big TVs, computer monitors and most smartphones. On the iPad you can remove the letterbox…
  2. I don't know why, but it didn't allowed me to drop the link on the last post, so here it is: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3711100771186&set=a.3651003108782.2131059.1085615895&type=3
  3. Então Hugo (vi que você é português em seu site), I don't have anythng modeled yet. I used Solidworks a long ago (still on Windows) when modeling schematics to illustrate my graduation's monography on music (I made several new alternative instruments). But I don't even know if solidworks runs on a Mac.…
  4. Olá Mario, Thank you for your interest in this project. I have never used Solid Works so I can't help you there. I use 3DS Max. What objects were you thinking of making? do you model yourself? if you do I could make an animation with one of your models. In the meanwhile I would like to see more light…
  5. Hi Hugo! I'm a light painter from Brazil since I was graduating in photography. Since I saw the "ghost" series with the cross section of the body, I was wondering how to make my own objects, but the iOS apps are not enought for me. I know a little of Solid Works and After Effects, but I'd never knew…

Cross Section Objects for Light Painting

Two years ago I was inspired after watching this: vimeo.com/14958082.
I wanted to do that too! and I figured out how. Soon after I made a cross section animation of my logo and played it on a galaxy s phone and made 140 photos from varying angles: youtube.com/watch?v=i1TEYHjyoJE&feature=g-upl
After having put this project in sleep mode it comes to my attention that many others are doing it with apps like Holographium but also other industrial sized light painting experiments which is great because it confirms that I'm not the only one excited about the power of combining computer

Two years ago I was inspired after watching this: vimeo.com/14958082.

After having put this project in sleep mode it comes to my attention that many others are doing it with apps like Holographium but also other industrial sized light painting experiments which is great because it confirms that I'm not the only one excited about the power of combining computer graphics with photography in a way that stays true to the essence of photography. However it still manages to raise questions amongst the most puritan light painters as to whether this is a legitimate form of light painting. I welcome those light painters to give this a go and see for yourselves how it's still performance dependant and no more than just a smart tool.

To make light-painting photos out of these animations you need to swipe your mobile phone, tablet, computer screen, TV during 10 seconds (or more if you intend on drawing more objects) while the shutter of your camera is open. You then have a photo with a 3D object that can be rotated depending on the direction you transport it. The best way to "swipe" manually is to imagine your device is a CT scanner and you're essentially assembling an imaginary object with light. Each object has a different length which means some animations are to be swiped over a shorter distance than others. The size of the screen also obviously affects the distance it has to travel.

If you happen to make any movies using these cross sections please add them to the group and it's a great way of seeing what the animations make.

If you also know how to make Cross-Section Objects for Light Painting add them here as it would be awesome to have a repository of objects anyone can use. In this context, if you are an iOS or android developer or know someone who is please contact me.

Yours truly,
Hugo Baptista
