Out of the Blue

Well that brief thaw was so neat and refreshing... I just hope it doesn't constitute the entirety of spring and summer, because we're buried in snow here again. I am not sure what's wrong with me shoveling before the crack of dawn (it seemed like a good idea at the time), but I have no one but myself to blame for my aching back. Creak... hobble...

The OC is a pretty cool low cost way for low budget film makers to do an invis special effect, but it's limited in that you can't have the "background" updated in real time, or if you do, you have to place the camera BEHIND the invisible object, meaning that surgeon's can't use it.

And the problem with projectors is that you can't really move the camera without the perspective changing and scrrewing up. You can zoom though, which is neat!
