Video space-time rotation on Princes St - Video 1 - output

Video space/time rotation (or should I say, transposition) - a thing.



This is the output video produced from the input video here:


Note that everyone is facing left, but some are "walking backwards" - this is because people walking left to right actually get mirrored, and those going right to left are unharmed.


Also note the mirror effect - sometimes, a whole horizontal bar of the background becomes a mirror - this really is a 'proper' mirror you are seeing. For extra madness, peoples reflections in the mirror actually move faster than the people themselves. More explanation later.


(Note that for this output video I set the framerate at 15 frames per second. All input videos were recorded at 30fps, I believe.)
