Vectorized Video Tutorial
Several people have asked me at launch events how we created the vectorized video of a DJ spinning turntables. I told them, it was done using AE and the livetrace feature in Illustrator, but this brief answer probably wasn't sufficient for someone to figure out how to do it themselves.
Well lo and behold, over on the CreativeCOW, Aharon Rabinowitz must be a mind reader because he created an in depth 3 part video cartoonization tutorial on creating this pseudo "Waking Life" look. It is long, but well worth the time. Tutorial also includes sample project files. One of the cool things about this is that once it is vectorized, you can continously rasterize it and scale it to any resolution.
