Interface for playing 27 video portraits simultaneously or separately is completed.
I’ve completed the interaction for the stacked portraits. The button reflects the state of the corresponding portrait: black = not visible, white = 0.8 opacity, grey = 0.3 opacity. Click to set the portrait as a starting point, roll over the next buttons to build a portrait over time.

You could see a the big picture of the development of the cover design. I want to make a self portrait during my […]
