First Lego League 4 Grown Ups

Last Friday I participated in the “First Lego League 4 Grown Ups”.

We were supposed to build and program a robot in about three hours time, after which we could test them in a friendly competition. Having seen children do this in the past, it was a welcome change to try this myself some time.

Three hours is not enough to build and program a serious robot for a competition, but it was nice to see some old colleagues and acquaintances.

Age Progression Morph HD

A few years after making my first age progression morph video, I decided to make a second, up to date version.
This time, I’ve changed a few things to improve the video:

  • Rending the morph at a higher resolution.
  • Using better codecs to encode the age morph and the resulting video.
  • Making sure the faces are about the same in size.
  • Paying more attention to individual details as they transform (eyes, nose, chin, etc)
  • Using a higher fps for the videos.

These improvements make the transformations a lot better looking. You can see the result in the video below:

In this video you can see the differences between an old transition to the new transition:

New YouTube video: Age Progression Morph HD

A few years after making my first age progression morph video, I decided to make a second, up to date version.
The video is now finished, and can be watched here.

To improve the quality of the transitions, I’ve improved the following things:

  • Rending the morph at a higher resolution.
  • Using better codecs to encode the age morph and the resulting video.
  • Making sure the faces are about the same in size.
  • Paying more attention to individual details as they transform (eyes, nose, chin, etc)
  • Using a higher fps for the videos.
