I wanted to render a 5 second video frame-by-frame in Impression with an impasto effect so, at 30 fps, I’d have a 150 frame animated painting of a person walking, or whatever. However the brushstrokes changed so much frame by frame that it is very distracting, flickering, and unusable for what I had intended.
Is there anyway to have a painterly effect frame to frame but have the frame to frame movement smoother? Like, if painted person on a canvas moved, the paint wouldn’t appear to disappear from one area and appear two inches away, there would be interpolation. I’d like to basically see a painting come to life except it would be done through turning a live action video into a painted animation: See video:
For example, the “paint” moves/“dances” on the otherwise non-moving background but the background doesn’t move and there is no camera movement.
For some reason I’ve had to press play twice on the video.
