You cannot lose if you do not play.
My first post here since April! I missed the whole of the burgeon experience and have done only a handful of daily creates. I am not saying sorry, I have made a few artefacts and experimented with some stuff that is pretty #ds106. There is no really useful instructions in this post, but links for the willing.
I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while, I did a few tests in June and tweeted a bit about it. It is pretty cool:
Videogrep is a python script that searches through dialog in videos and then cuts together a new video based on what it finds. Basically, it’s a command-line “supercut” generator.
Here is a quick test:
And a link to another: blade runner know
I’ve not even scratched the surface of videogrep, there are some pretty amazing ideas on the link.
I had a wee bit of difficulty installing videogrep, and had, as I recall, to wander round googling to get things running. The videos produced lacked sound, but running them through miro video converter fixed that. I am guessing if you are command line savvy enough the code could be adjusted.
Here is a supercut for Barksdale in episode 1 of the wire.
Both gifboard and videogrep are command line applications and not for the faint hearted.
I dusted off gifboard for a quick slice of the wire:
With a little encouragement from Mariana, I dipped my toes back into glitching world, I am afraid no movie glitchs I made were of any interest, but I had better luck with sonicification of images after Alan posted Image Bending in Audacity.
Basically a lot of copy and pasting.
During the emblems giffight Andrew Forgrave produced some great anaglyph gifs and some tutorials around them from which I gained a lot (globe-of-doom-anaglyph-1 | Flickr – Photo Sharing!).
I’ve been a big fan of the wire so hoped to throw myself into some ds106 activity, turns out re-watching series one I mostly get caught up in enjoying it and following the plot, not much analysis going on here. Hopefully I get some fun before the series is out.
