3D Light Painting with an Ipad and DSLR

October 8, 2010 by Screening Room

Gizmodo posted about this really cool iPad app that lets you perform sophisticated 3D light painting. Check out the video and make sure to watch the machine shop animation short after the behind the scenes stuff.

Making Future Magic: iPad light painting from Dentsu London on Vimeo.

We use photographic and animation techniques that were developed to draw moving 3-dimensional typography and objects with an iPad. In dark environments, we play movies on the surface of the iPad that extrude 3-d light forms as they move through the exposure. Multiple exposures with slightly different movies make up the stop-frame animation.

You can read more about the project from the Dentsu London blog and the Berg Blog.

Why, hello there.

This is PhotoCine News. The definitive blog about the collision between filmmaking and photography. It was started in 2010 by Michael Britt and Lou Lesko the same people who created the PhotoCine Expo.

PCN had a fantastic run for about three and half years. Now it remains as an archive for the internet though the generosity of BlinkBid Software. The industry standard software for bidding, producing, and invoicing photography and motion gigs.

Have a fabulous day.
