Live Chronocut Machine
The first Chronocuts were made using a web browser, a very unpredictable approach, which at times could in itself be interesting. This technique was updated to using a matt to make slices, and then cutting and pasting clips at intervals. A couple of weeks was spent in 2010 trying to automate the process in After Effects and make something more immediate, but with limited success. Long render times and CPU overload, meant the technique wasn't quicker or more flexible. Over the summer holidays just gone I was revisiting some old patches and had another go in Max and very quickly it came together. A live camera input was tried and here is a minute or so. Though it initially just encourages 'larking about', there are clearly numerous possibilities.
