﷯Creating a Fake Slit Scan Tunnel In my previous life I worked with motion control (computerized) animation stands and rigs. One of the areas that fascinated me was that of slit scan. I won’t go into the specifics, but slit scan is a technique that paints light on to film. It can add depth to flat objects, fold flat artwork on to itself, and create many other interesting looks. There isn’t a reasonable way (that I have found) to create a slit scan with computer graphics that works on the principles of true slit scan. But there are ways to fake it with After Effect. In this tutorial I will demonstrate a way to create a slit scan tunnel using files generated in Photoshop and plugins native to After Effects.
