Graduation project online!

It took me some time, but I finally finished all the movies I wanted to make about my graduation project. They are currently visible on YouTube. Note that not all video’s are provided with annotations yet. Once I have time I will make sure they are provided.

Besides the movies I also update my graduation project page. The technical details are not yet available. These will be posted as soon as my thesis is officially published. Once this is done, I will also upload the thesis itself.

“For my graduation project, I was an intern at a company called Memoria Media and worked on the V.I.P. (video internet pipeline) project as project leader, architect and developer.

The V.I.P. framework is a framework that enables custom build logic pipelines to run on multiple computers. The framework first forms a cloud with the provided computers, after which it will distribute individual nodes from a provided pipeline on it. The distribution will be done depending on the logic that the nodes execute, and the hardware running on the individual computers in the cloud.

The main goal of the V.I.P. framework is to make digital video processing easier to distribute over multiple computers. Of course it can also be used for other purposes.”

Age Progression Morph

A project I wanted to do for a long time. Using pictures from all ages and a program that enabled me to make transitions between those pictures I constructed a movie in which I transformed from a baby to a 19 year old guy:

In the video below you can see how one transition is made. This was done for every year. Eventually all transitions were edited together using Adobe Premiere Pro. The Morphing software is called MorphMan.

Making of Age Progression Morph

While cleaning up my pc I noticed that when I made the video Age Progression Morph I also recorded how I made one of the transitions. Today i decided to render the material and post it on YouTube.

Using a program called MorphMan, I made animated transitions between every picture that is visible in the movie. Eventually all transitions were edited together using Adobe Premiere Pro.
