I took 52 shots of myself, then took slices from each one to make this composite self-portrait in a slit scan style. Click to embiggen.

Another slitscan self portrait from the same video/image stack as the one below, using some simple Processing code I wrote.

I've been trying to do slitscanning with Processing for years.

The trouble is the quicktime interface Processing has/uses is prone to failing, and code crashes quite sporadically.

So, I decided to skip quicktime, by using ffmpeg to convert my video to frames, use Processing to process the frames while outputting new frames, and then use ffmpeg to put the new frames back together into a video. This is working well.

Here is just a quick single frame, made from a 30 second video of me rotating my head slowly.
