GAID x Fubar 2022 workshop: Automate Your Glitching

This workshop demonstrates techniques for batch glitching images and image sequences derived from videos. It uses bash scripting and freely available open source tools to achieve interesting glitch effects on a large amount of images, converting from time based media to images (frames) and vice versa in the process. Automation is achieved by using bash shell scripting, which simplifies managing repetitive tasks.

Attendees will gain a better understanding of video and image systems and hands-on experience in using open source command line tools for image processing.

Workshop participants are expected to bring their laptops with preinstalled software and short video clips to work on.

The session is part of the GAID 2022 event. <3
