3D-Models Were Harmed in the Making of This Video

The year is 2019, and photographs are no longer cool. While you were out developing photos from your plastic Polaroid, the kids these days were 3D-scanning people into their computers and animating them with their fancy software. Do you feel old now? You are old. You don’t even know what a ‘software’ is.

I’m always looking to broaden my tool set, and motion graphics is a bottomless well of cool things to learn. Below are some of my experiments that I’ve done in my free time.

Using a process called photogrammetry, you can reconstruct a 3D model of yourself using just static photos of yourself. You can even use any regular old phone to take these photos, as long as you don’t cover everything with your thumb like you always do.

Another tool that animators have been using is motion-capture, allowing them to create lifelike animations and alter them digitally. I was able to access motion-capture sequences online, completely free. Even a dumb caveman like me was able to get it up and working in no time,

It’s certainly hard to believe. Almost feels like just yesterday we were impressed whenever we saw any CGI in movies, even if it looked horrible and gave us nightmares. Technology is evolving quickly, and so is the landscape of visual art. I’m here to keep up with it.
