How Do They Do This ?
« on: August 23, 2009, 06:48:48 AM »
This is something really WORTH SEEING......


Place your cursor at the top of the photo. You will notice it is  6:10 PM. Bring the mouse down slowly over the photo without pressing the button on the mouse. Do not right or left click. Night time appears, the lights come on, and at 7:40 PM, it's dark!  Photo Technology at its best

More than two methinks - looks like a series taken at intervals as the sun set. It's a cool effect.

Very cool effect, its a shockwave movie or animation sort of thing...  the boat is interesting, as it fades out rather than sail away, spooky lol  :legit:

It is very cool.

One bit's easy - it's a series of pics overlaid and then presented as a Flash file.

How many pics is the tricky bit.  Not quite enough ;)  At about 7:20 it gets very ropey with the skyscraper having a nasty cut out look.  I'm guessin it's actually 2 pics though it may be more.  Shooting every minute and then blending would have been awesome - though the boat would have smeared.

But very cool.
It's Guest's round

It looks like 2 pics to me.  Each one has been tweaked for hue & saturation to give lots of slightly different exposures

It deffinitley looks like 2 pics to me with an onion skinning effect (i think thats whats its called) to morph between the 2.

When you get to just after 07.00 you start to see a boat with it's light on (as well as the building lights) coming through. You don't see any of the boats in any other positions in the harbour, they are there or not there which is what leads me to think it is just two shots.

I'm no flash expert but have dabbled with it in the past and know you can associate the mouse movement to actions\controls which will be what has been done here. As the mouse is moved up and down it will control the 'morphing' between the two.
