These are some of my early experiments with slit-scan photography, made while trying a Processing application I coded mostly as a learning exercise. The software allows you to either 'scan' your webcam image or a video file, but since using my laptop as camera is a bit cumbersome, most of the above images were made by 'scanning' some random videos I had around. I'll have to try to shoot video specifically for slit-scanning — so far I found out that stable, sideways shots of slow-moving subjects work the best. (As an aside, slit-scan photography is basically one of the main techniques used by Photo-finish systems, only at very high frame rates.)

Anyway, I think the app is cool and stable enough to be worth sharing, so I made a download for Windows available — head to my Processing sketches page to get it!
