More Manipulation – ICM

October 23rd, 2010 in Computational Media by 0 Comments

This is an add-on to ‘Video Manipulation – ICM‘.

Coding Assignment: Incorporate the pixels of an image (or video) into a Processing sketch.

Solution: Processing Code

NOTE: Due to the usage of a webcam, this code will not run via the applet. Download the code and run it locally.

This solution in a nutshell is a grain filter. It randomly takes a 20% sample of all the available pixels and modifies its RGB values by a value of -20 to 20. The outcome looks like there is grain embedded in the signal.

During the first run of this solution, the grain was added as a layer on top of the video instead of being embedded with the video. This the overal image look fake due to only having grain of one color. I wanted the grain to look more organic, like a 1990′s television transmission.
