Join Owen Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Designing a phonotrope guide in Photoshop: Finishing, part of Motion Graphics Loops 03: Analog Techniques - The Phonotrope.
- [Voiceover] After you print out your guides,…cut out each row and any excess paper on the top…and bottom but leave some extra space on either the…left or right side so you can overlap each row with…extra space to tape them together without there…being a gap.…That way when you play back your animation on the record…player you'll get some really nice smooth animation.…
You'll get hands on and color, cut, paste, and draw and, along the way, learn about the logistics of player speeds, frames, video capture, and lighting. In the final chapter, you'll get tips and inspiration for taking your Phonotrope to the next level with transparency and mixed media.
