seam carving

Posted by bremblebeck on August 21, 2007

I del.icio.us’d this recently, but I hadn’t yet seen it in action. This is, in my humble opinion, bloody amazin’. Dr. Ariel Shamir is about to get riznich. I’ll bet he gets back at all those other kids from Temple that made fun of him when ‘The Little Mermaid’ came out.

They’re going to do this like they did ‘bullet-time‘ and You’ll be seeing this stuff in a big budget music video for Vitalic or Daft Punk in the next few weeks. Then a veritable deluge of car and sports drink commercials. Followed soon thereafter by a movie with Jet-Li, Xzibit and a cgi Aaliyah called something like ‘Throw y’Hands Up!’ based on a different film by Jet Li ten years ago called ‘Fist of Rupture’, only this time with, y’know, seam carving.

…and now, some Vitalic, just for grits and shiggles.

Also, you people get ready, I’m going to start living healthy. I’m going to commit to it for a week and then a month, and see if I can stop looking so much like a whiskey barrel and more like, well, Spiderman.

I will likely document the process, so’s I feel like I’m accountable for something.

Wish me luck.

    If you are looking for a software to try out seam carving, take a look at http://www.thegedanken.com/retarget

    The program that you can download there (for Windows and Linux, and free) is already highly optimized concerning speed, and apart from enlarging or decreasing image size you can also use masks to protect or delete certain parts of your image.

    Have fun,
    Irmgard
