Tools for analyzing film sequences
footage: faq | Brock, Hudl
Recreating Movement is a computer program for analysing film sequences and has been developed within a diploma thesis.
With the help of various filters and settings Recreating Movement makes it possible to extract single frames of any given film sequence and arranges them behind each other in a three-dimensional space. This creates a tube-like set of frames that "freezes" a particular time span in a film. By using the keyboard the viewer can browse through the sequence of frames, chose any kind of view of the sequence of frames and influence the displayed frames directly via a displayable menu bar.
The project is to be understood as a design approach, and not a finished product. It describes various
scenarios and provides an overview of the possibilities of displaying film sequences three-dimensionally.
