Yesterday we caught our first glimpse at the Flatland Tricky How-To App, now today we spotted a video on Flat Matters showing us just how the app that shows you how to perform flatland tricks were made. This BMX video shows you the crazy green screen setup they used to capture the riding tricks and the program they used to turn it into a 4-D rendering that can be viewed from every angle, frame by frame.
There’s a lot that goes into developing an app like this, and it’s pretty wild to see how they bring actual riding together with cameras, computers, editing and programming software to produce something like this. It also leads us to believe they’re cable of building off this to produce an actual BMX game that allows you to put these tricks together and control the rider. We’re not sure if it will actually become a game or not, since the how-to app is just about to roll out on iTunes and then Android in early 2016, but we could only hope, right?
Either way, this looks like a rad app if you’re looking to learn how to do flatland tricks.
We want to hear from you! Let us know what you think in the comments below.
