3d screengrab photoshop crasher

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.

secret shush blog to be revealed shortly

On the SHH blog, I’ve been recording the development of “THE BEAUTIFUL PLAN” — a plan for an exhibition designed to immerse the audience in the world of VICTOR and Her Vagina Island, the setting for my film “WOMBED MAN, KING OF GODS”. Below are three links. The first is to a movie made in basic_bitmap_zoom, or as I like to call it EASYTOOL !!! (I’ve been using ET a lot! it’s an experimental drawing program still in development, and I am like the test subject!)



http://screenkid.co.uk/ass/tbp.mov — this is rough raw and expressionistic! It shows “the gallery space” and within it a 4way projector that hits all 4 walls. The people inside are fully absorbed by the world of our new R God, Victor, the Wombed Man that gave birth to Vagina Island and it’s unpredictable denizens. The exhibition is about projected light projecting immersive ideologies with the desired effect of invoking new spirits. The music is taken from Mark Stewart & the Mafia “As the Veneer of Democracy Starts to Fade”. This old track is very relevent in our current (globalocal) political climate. I’ve also chosen it for misleading reasons, the track talks about things fading when the intent of the proposed show is to further solidify something that doesn’t physically exist, not the opposite — it’s like French backwards slang! Now the 2nd movie!




http://screenkid.co.uk/ass/blend66.mov BLEND66 was made in Blender. Blender is free and easy to use! Get it while it’s hot! I ran into a few problems while using Blender, the computer I’m using it on is too old and slow to render out movies and it runs like a slug at the best of times… Originally I intended to make a rough 3D simulation of the gallery experience with the same animatic playing out of sync on all 4 “walls”. After a series of crashes I just took 24 screengrabs from various angles, took the screengrabs into photoshop and put them in to a sequence. Next I exported 4 different versions of the movie based on our colour theory, Red Spectrum, Blue Spectrum, Green Spectrum and Black Victor Spectrum, The Objective. There are a number of songs playing at once on this movie, the two audiable ones are “EARTHQUAKE SHAKE” by The Undisputed Truth and “ITS JUST BEGUN” by the Jimmy Castor Bunch. Earthquake Shake is the sound of the mountain and the volcano, It’s Just Begun carries archaic symbolism, the birth of a new god and the creation of a strange land.



http://screenkid.co.uk/ass/allgo4plan.mov — THIS ONE IS THE CLIMAX! I’ve uploaded the last 2 movies and loaded them up in different windows, “THE BEAUTIFUL PLAN” is playing in a big window in the center, the projector, the origin, and “BLEND66” is playing in 4 seperate windows surrounding it — emulating the desired effect of the proposed show within a web browser. I took a load of screengrabs and squirted them through photoshop into quicktime where I added a piece of music by the Residents with a lyric about windows and ugly feelings. The song is called “WOULD WE BE ALIVE”.


The 3 movies, born out of each other, all coexisting simultaneously in seperate developmental stages, are a weird overweb reflection of the intricate relationship between the catgirlvampire and it’s varying forms. The original idea of “THE BEAUTIFUL PLAN” is like the Sword hatching out of the egg, and these 3 films evolutionary path that follows. What a happy accident! Can you believe that I only just realised that now — after taking a break from writing this post and eating some fish and chips?!


Anyway, that’s enough now, I hope you enjoy the three superaw development movies —I’ve got some drawings and diagrams to stick up as soon as I get access to a scanner and on Monday you get to see the secret SHH blog! Right now I’m going to watch Ralph Bakshi’s WIZARDS for research and inspiration. It’s available on youtube but I’ve got it on DVD snotbag. BYE!
