3d screengrab photoshop crasher

wombed 3dman 3d

king 3dof 3dGODS 3d

So the 3d features in photoshop are too hot to handle for my computank. they won’t work in sync with the slam with the slam animation ƒeatures, the whole thing just freezes up and gets really frigid. it’s like when you tell a girl you love her at the same time as giving her a juicy snog with your tongue on her teeth, just doesn’t work. seelook:

so, I came up with a novel way to beat the system incapacity error. do each word for the title one at a time {{wombed} {man} {king} {of} {gods}} tweak them with Repoussé (IRL: a metalworking tech that involves hammering malleable metal to create ornamented designs in low relief (IPS: an image editing tool that lets you manipulate 2d shapes and text into twisted 3d wonders)) and screengrab as sweet forms emerge.

killer. then all you have to do is delete the tough 3d shape you’ve made once you’ve sucked enough screengrabs out of it and drag all your grabs back into photoshop and render out a movie of them in a sequence that pleases you greatly. I’ve made a couple of versions of the proto—title sequence so far.

•one:  each word is playing in it’s own quicktime player box simultaneously on screen (the spectacle is then turned into a self contained movie by screengrabbing a load of frames and playing them back in sequence)

•two: each word does it’s thing one after the other in sequence like blam blam blam

•three: the third I think I will use in the final cut. all the screengrabs have been taken into photoshop, edited, layered over one another, and animated in sequence, glitching and writhing about together disorientated

I’m trying to figure out how to utilize these 3d fangs to make props and stages for the movie, so far the results are minimal and interesting, there is progress to be made.

carry a notepad, keep a journal

recognise “f´ool”, click all smaller images for larger images. see video to see all images in sequence twice w/ hours of audio

condensed down into 20 seconds. on the phrase “music is constant only listening is intermittent” (John cage) — swop “music” for “elephant” and “listening” for “lightning” for cartoon phenomenology applied to situational reality.

you may have trouble viewing video in firefox, if so, link

study in to the Girl (1st image, right page):

diagram depicting proposition of the mind machine (2nd image, left page). cat represents everything you perceive in reality that the mind erases (eg; the blackout when you blink). Girl represents wishes, dreams, your mentally perceived image of yourself, the self that projects love and that others may come to love, your self inflated ego projected on to you from an early age, your “above average” “over adequate”, the first line of defense against depressive realism.

vampire represents what you fear others will perceive you as, what you are, as you exist/don’t exist, have existed/will come to exist. vampire is your drive and desires, your door down to the divine.

the crocodile, the sword, and other depictions are variables and outside influences that may or may not effect/be a part of the mind machine.

I’ve been busty recording the soundtrack for WMKOG’s with multi-instrumentalist MARTIN BLATES & popstir GIGANROYALE

What I really need to do now is make some serious spreadsheets and timetables and gant charts in some super serious software shotgun

Evverry single time that I’ve sat down to get involved in it recently I’ve been distracted so this week is the week to finally nail the visual organisation side of the show, I hope you’re  as excited as me about that ! ! :)

Also in the following week, expect to seem some sneaky test shots of the movie in production.
