F is for Fail is a short film created by Brent Barson for Veer.com. It’s about the creative process, and the failure we always encounter, but usually overcome.
Typographic footage was converted and exported one frame at a time. I exported still video frames, then finessed and converted each frame to vector type with a standalone program called Vectoraster. Then, I reimported the stills into AE as a sequence for editing and colorization, etc. Soon after this project, Vectoraster gained the ability to export movies, making this tedious effort unnecessary. Oh well. :
