This deceptively simple animation trick has extra depth

Plugged In

Last year, video illusionist Brusspup wowed us with a technique called ‘scanimation’ – basically, creating a short cartoon by passing a transparent overlay (printed with bars of a fixed width) over a static image that ‘contains’ several frames of animation within it. It sounds complicated, but the effect is simple, low-tech, and very do-it-yourself-able.

Bruss has refined his technique, incorporating shades of gray for a more realistic, three-dimensional effect. You’ll see this improvement in three of the animations below, including a liquid ripple animation that could almost be CGI if you didn’t know better (though Bruss’ adorable cat is real, we think).
