      This is the perfect opportunity for a Carl Sagan quote: "Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." The footage in this little film was captured by the hardworking men and women at NASA and The European Space Agency with the Cassini Imaging Science System.

          First official teaser for "In Saturn's Rings", a giant screen space film for IMAX®, giant screen and fulldome theaters distributed by BIG & Digital, coming spring 2014. To watch in 4K, download "original file" (you need a fast computer and a 4K monitor to view it full rez). http://www.insaturnsrings.com/ https://www.facebook.com/insaturnsringsmovie https://twitter.com/insaturnsrings The film is 100% created using only flat 2D photographs (often hundreds or thousands per frame) stitched together for massive hundred megapixel+ resolutions that are scaled and zoomed using techniques developed by the filmmaker, based on Ken Burns and 2.5D photo animation processes. A computer is actually not even required to do this - it could all be done exactly using photoanimation techniques from 100 years ago (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoanimation). No 3D models, texture mapping, 3D CGI, camera projection, cloning or painting or any other VFX techniques are used - every pixel is what was captured in the photograph. The photographs are processed as minimally as possible - much less than your average Instagram photo.

                    A very short excerpt of new actual footage from "Outside In". This clip is created entirely from still photographs taken by the Cassini spacecraft - no CGI, no 3D models, textures etc. This is a 1080p HD file down-rezzed from a 5600 x 4200 32-bit color (5.6k) master file. This is a fly-through of the Equinox photograph taken by Cassini last year. Very large photo-mosaics from talented folks at Unmanned Spaceflight forums as well as ring mosaics created by me make this possible when combined with various animation techniques. Created in Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. Work at this resolution has been impossible until the new 64-bit version of After Effects. Stay tuned for the full clip!

                      Planetary scientist Carolyn Porco - or rather, her Lego doppelgänger - takes you on a fascinating journey with Cassini-Huygens, a space mission investigating Saturn and its intriguing moons. This stop-motion animation is a recreation of Porco's real-life presentation from the 2007 TED conference. (Maia Weinstock, 2010; Behind the scenes: http://maiaw.com/behind_the_scenes.html)
