Q:I really enjoy your datamoshed stuff. Would you be willing to do a tutorial or share how/where you come across your techniques?
Its a type of .AVI glitching that involves the deletion of keyframes (or I-frames in video compression lingo). Basically, you edit together a series of clips, then encode them in such a way that only the first frame of each clip is an I-frame, with the rest being P-frames. P-frames only store changes/motion from the previous frame as a space saving method. By deleting the I-frame at the beginning of a new clip, the video is forced to apply the motion of the second clip to the first, creating the kind of glitching you see in my gifs. A good basic tutorial can be found here http://youtu.be/5Fdcck-PoFY One thing to note if you follow that is that you’ll need Avidemux 2.5.6 rather than the latest version.
Had to compress and split this one for tumblr, click the link for the full version.
Q:Your blog is amazing. I love the way you warp things!
Thanks! I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting with datamoshing too, glad you enjoy it.

Glitching the Glitch. 1st image is the original datamoshed frame, 2nd and 3rd are 24-bit BMP glitches, 4th and 5th are CMYK Sonification, 6th and 7th are combinations.
I only had a few clips in fairly low quality but honestly I think that may make these work better.
