HLC: TOKYO, Watch out for the Indians flying in!

Video effects of a photo including doodle, cartoon, background removal and movement

We have not been able to update new challenge for some time owing to a bug report. Anyway, here is the latest, it is less on 3d models, and more on video and image processing. Hope you all love it. And what matters more for now, show your support to the Indian team at MyGov Campaign.

Video Creation Steps:

Creation of all necessary media
  1. Copy the feature image from above link.
  2. Now, we create 2 parts from this image, the left and the right one with players.
  3. We ran the player image through IBRT for background removal, which worked to our expectations.
  4. We created a doodle image, a pencil sketch and a cartoon illustration for the player part of the image.
Doodle Video

For this time, instead of using logic we use the “generate” action keyword (generate item) as the picture was quite wide. And we use the hand pen image with the same doodle coordinates. We changed from 8400 frame of doodle to 375.

Sketch and Cartoon Video

Pretty standard, single layer of black cover coming from right for the sketch and linear increasing size of cartoon.

And that’s all. This was indeed quite simple. Wanna improve further?

Summary:

  1. No summary this time, we are very serious about sports! We ran after dangling tabs all day, jump over leaky bugs before they could fly, we pull up long pending feature requests (mostly to put it in another queue) all meetings, we can even crash the internet based on the size of error stack we have, but we do not do that, as then we cannot read reddit!
