    Is this old news ? I haven't seen it before,

    being developed by Bob Sabbiston (He wrote the rotoscope software for 'A Waking Life',, 'A Scanner Darkly'

    "As of now, there are no finite plans for release. The project is on Nintendo's radar, but failing a commercial release, Sabiston mentioned the possibility of making it available to homebrew hackers on the Web"

    Yeh have a look:

    I really hope this gets released... That would be so damn cool!

    (Also, check out a Scanner Darkly, the film is watchable and the rotoscoping looks pretty cool! If your a reader though the book is probably my favourite of Philip K Dick's works!)

    The process is called rotoscoping. The actual images are simply vector based graphics.

    I love the style too. Wikipedia says that for A Scanner Darkly, each minute of animation was 500 hours of work.

    I don't know. But it had a $6 million budget, so they had enough for everyone I guess. I'm pretty sure everyone had to put it that amount of work. I'm not quite sure about the process. Wikipedia doesn't go into too much detail. However, it is a very interesting read and I'm sure it's a good balance between coloring every line and waiting for it to process. Someone ought to make the process automatic =P.

    God I wish this software was publicly available
