This started with some video footage taken out the window of a Hawaiian Airlines flight taking off from Kahului on Maui. I then used some new smart seam features in the Studio Artist 4 scan tracker to to build the static image from the video footage shot out the window of the plane as it was taking off.
The fascinating thing about this kind of static imagery is that you can construct images that appear to make visual sense but would be impossible to take with a static camera (because they don't actually exist). The plane is doing a pretty wide turn during ascent so you could never really generate the static view shown in this constructed temporal image.
