Name of this type of effect?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am curious, is there a specific name for this effect used in the Superman title? Was think about trying to recreate it with a 35mm slr camera as an experiment.

 Cheers!

For a still image, it's easy -- zoom in or out while using a very long shutter time.  For moving pictures, it is a bit more complicated to do it optically (read up on slit-scan...)

I did 2 slitscan logos for projects recently. You will need a motion control and a precise way to trigger your SLR for every frame (long exposure). These 2 logos were done using a Canon 5DMKII. Next step is using a film camera and go the whole way 🙂

Exposure time was 15sec for each frame in both examples.

Password: slitscan

 

 

And this one, the logo is at the end. No computer generated elements in this - all practical. Computer used for compositing only.

Wow, doing practical slit-scan effects sounds crazy! Anyway, this discussion inspired me to make my own Superman-trubute-style video bumper (specifically striving to make it look less digital and imperfect for a vintage vibe):
