HOW TO – Make video flipbooks with AfterEffects

Vid Flipbook

Bennett sent us this how-to on making flipbooks from video –

I can’t quite remember how I got the idea, but I thought it would be fun to create some flipbooks based off of video I had shot. The challenge was to be able to effeciently process the frames from a 3-5 second clip, have them printed by a photography shop, and assemble them as easily as possible.

After some testing, I created a template within After Effects that takes a video as input, and through some expressions I wrote, outputs a sequence of JPGs – each with four video frames and crop markings per 4×6 print
