As you can see in this video for the group Superhumanoids, the slit scan technique used here can create some pretty, trippy effects. So, what exactly is slit scan, you ask? Well, in a nutshell, this technique gives the viewer a sense of time shifting. Hence, why the effect was used to make the star gate passage in Stanley Kurbrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. Imagine how awesome 2001 would look if they had After Effects around during that time! We just might have to steal this one for our next project.
