Continuing with experiments in generating random organic illustrations using Flash and ActionScript. This time processing video in realtime.
To create the short looping example video below, the flash movie output each frame of the 47frames as a still BMP. The ‘brush’ shapes were changed on the fly by using a drag bar. The final stills were then stuck together in AfterEffect (using no other treatments) to create the final output.
Above: Stills from a real-time random illustration generated in Flash over 3min 28seconds of music as part of the brief from Becks. Entry for the Becks Live Studios. (Video coming soon) Created at Outside Line studios.
“One of the most innovative and exciting things we’re working on right now is Beck’s Fusions, a unique art and music fusion project that runs throughout this summer, as part of Beck’s longstanding support of contemporary arts and music. We’re working on a digital venture called Live Studio, open to anyone willing and able to display their artistic talents and express their individuality.”
