Microsoft has been researching this new technology that allows a user to flatten a video into a 2-D ‘photo’, create a few effects, and then re-merge the work back into a video format! Apparently this change can continue along all frames of the video. They demonstrated this on their website by slapping some facial hair onto a man’s clean shave. The work is called ‘Unwrap Mosaic’ for obvious reasons.
‘So what’ you say? Well, for one, this could mean that the average editor not privy to all of the fancy equipment in hollywood might soon be applying some serious effects here folks. I guess it remains to be seen how this product will be distributed and for what price, but it’s still cool and is definitely news worthy for video production editing fans. I can see the output from this video production software will eventually being smeared all over Youtube.
