See how lenticular works
You’ve seen lenticular before, but have you ever wondered, “how the heck does that stuﬀ work”? Well, we’re here to show you! To get a better look, let’s take a look at the example on the right.
We Start With Multiple Images
We start with three images of our young lady showing three expressions, images A, B, and C.
We Cut Each Image Into Strips
We “interlace” the three images using proprietary software, cutting each into slices. Those slices will later match up with the lines of the lenticular lens material.
As part of that interlacing process, we shuﬄe those slices with the resulting ﬁle showing a slice of Image A, a slice of Image B, and then a slice of image C. This is repeated until we have a fully interlaced image.
That interlaced image is then printed directly to the back of the lens material. The lens blocks Image B and Image C from your view, so you only see image A. As you turn the card and change your angle of view, the lens blocks Images A and C, and you only see Image B. Turn it again, and you only see Image C.
Turn it quickly, and it animates A,B,C… and when turned the other direction, it shows you C, B, A. So now you have a single card with three images that animates right in your hand!
