Episode 044: Splitting myself!

This week I am absolutely late with the show. I recorded on the weekend and had to find out later, that I had messed up the sound.

As an emergency fill in I made this. It’s a project I wanted to do for a long time – and did now without anny planning and preparation. I even forgot to take a tripod for the video camera with me. But the lab provided a clamp for Erlenmeyer flasks. Worked great. 🙂

I got the idea from Allan J. Ager and Simon Taylor from the Tips from the Top Floor Forum.

You can download the four finally used files and a shrinked xcf file as an archive. The full resolution output is here.

UPDATE: Newer versions of GIMP don’t add an alpha channel automatically to a new layer. Add one for each layer except the bottom one!
