BUSY HARBOUR
« on: August 31, 2013, 09:37:23 pm »

If it wasn't for the humans running around in this video I'd have put money on it that they were models.

Agreed. But then I noticed the editor used "Magic Bullet Looks 2 using the Swing Tilt pre-set that makes the machinery and ships take on a model toy appearance:-))

It can give us a good idea how to do our models as to detail, painting and weathering etc. What looks right from the prototype.

It's a video 'effect' that makes the image look "Miniature"... available in most new digital cameras these days.

Magic Bullets is an editing program, http://www.redgiant.com/products/all/magic-bullet-looks/


The primary effect is the 'tilt-shift' effect, which changes the focus of an image by 'tilting' the lens, making things look miniature.

Until recently (i.e. Wallace & Grommit), the cameras used to take close up pictures of models had a very narrow depth of focus - i.e. the distance between the closest and furthest things in focus in the image.
This means that we have been programmed to expect such an effect in pictures taken of small things, close up - doesn't take long to brain wash a population, does it?
These videos, and their like, use post editing of the images (or, as pointed out, many cameras now do it too) to give this effect.  Many of them also use time lapse videos which give a stop-motion effect a la 'Jason and the Argonauts'.

.... a bit like when we used to put our eye down to track level and what for the Triang train to rush by at scale size!   O0

Awesome!

What a cute model world this tilt-shift technique creates.

The video looks as if shot in the MiWuLa in Hamburg.
(n.b. note that the ships in the Scandinavia section of MiWuLa are floating on real water and are remote controlled (I think by ultrasound))
