Fiber Optic cables have the ability to transfer large amounts of data at a fast rate. Their tiny size gives these fibers a great number of possibilities when incorporated into a video clip or animation.

Watch as I use "Photography" & "Stop-Motion Animation" techniques in order to create Light Streaks / Trails.

Software I am using is DRAGON FRAME (Stop-Motion Animation program). They offer a free 30 trial of this program for both Mac & PC if you are interested in trying it out for yourself. visit...
