Coffee drop contour animation

Coffee drop contour animationThis animation was created by filming a waiter at my favorite coffee shop mock dropping a cup of coffee on me. Then I imported the video to flash and traced the contours of each frame. Next I deleted the video and exported the animation to Flash and here it is. The concept behind the animation was part of a larger project related to letting the user experience a story on a website via a web-cam and Flash player. The project ended up developing into something completely different and included an undocumented feature of Flash MX that allows Flash to take a picture of a user (with permission of course). I will post that work in the future and may follow with a tutorial showing you how to photograph your users with their own web cam using Flash and no Flash Communication Server. The work was created during the Fall semester 2002 at UNO. Click through to see a larger version of the work.
