This example of the flash trail effect was shot in a studio on a black background. The leading "live" image of the actress was illuminated frame-by-frame by strobes that flashed as one Timetrack™ shutter at a time opened sequentially across the camera system at 40 fps. The irregular trail images were illuminated by another set of strobes that were timed to go off when multiple shutters on the Timetrack™ camera were opened between those individual shutter events. The softer more regular underexposed images were created by ambient light that was "always on".
This complex project was shot on motion picture film with our digital camera systems used for on set performace and timing review.
