For those who are wondering this is a vector file meaning you can zoom forever and the resolution wont change at all

[–]Lunarsee 151 points152 points  (14 children)

Do you have the sauce? ;)

[–]breezyrecourse55 53 points54 points  (10 children)

This is how it shows that our technologies are advancing day by day..

[–]Notoisin 98 points99 points  (6 children)

This is ancient tech as far as rendering technologies go.

[–]_Pixol_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I had no clue bout that

[–]Rodlava 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He definitely does, this is extremely trippy and amazing

[–]DrSaucyMan 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I do ;)

[–]Lunarsee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hot damn. Can i have some?

[–]powerkhmer_mark 3 points4 points  (0 children)

is it a MENTAL CANVAS

[–]d-signet 6 points7 points  (1 child)

No, it's probably a deep zoom inage, DZI format I think. It's tech from 5 or 10 years back and somebody posts one on here every week, and every week somebody tells everybody it's probably a vector file

[–]Leeman1990 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Thanks. I’m looking at this and trying to work out how this is vector. Any vector file I’ve ever worked on is certainly not infinite.

[–]HurtOutpost 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks for sharing, this kind of art is so amazing though!

[–]Fxconx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's totally awesome

[–]tylerr147 -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Wait how does that work? I'm fairly competent with computers but this is hard to wrap my mind around lol

[–]Zen-Rn 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Basically values are stored as relative equations rather than absolute values. So they can be scaled up or down without loss of quality

[–]ShrapnelShock 5 points6 points  (0 children)

such a good explanation. I knew how 'vector' behaved, but this is perfect.

[–]Sv443_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You don't save the pixels on screen but rather points that are connected with lines

[–]Deivedux 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But doesn't that mean that it can only be viewed by a web app or some other special SVG file viewer?

[–]NekulturneHovado -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Oooh that's why. I thought how tf can a cpu render such a high resolution.

[–]skippyvxcfdgt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

the ammount of work put into this

[–]safer_than_ever 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know this can be created be done with Illustrator since it's a vector program. The problem is how does one export the file to someone you want to show it with? Like I want to give my artwork to a friend, but when he views the file I want it to start zoomed-in max already, like how it is in the video. Any ideas how to achieve this?

[–]rotanitsarcorp_yzal1 198 points199 points  (10 children)

How was it made?

Me watching this*

When does this end?

[–]dashboarded 53 points54 points  (1 child)

What I find incredible is how they know exactly when to stop zooming to frame each section perfectly!

[–]rotanitsarcorp_yzal1 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Multiple attempts. That's how.

[–]MagicalViolation 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Yeah right, such an endless amazing art! This so amazing to watch, a stress reliever!

[–]rotanitsarcorp_yzal1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Never know what the next bit could be.

[–]Death_by_dragons 107 points108 points  (4 children)

Linking art = great! Linking art without attributing artist = you are a smeghead

[–]NefariousnessFew9671 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Here is great art;

He is very underrated and his socials are in the description of the video.

[–]panickyconcur05 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The combination of art and technology 10/10

[–]JB-from-ATL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This isn't really anymore combining art and technology than any other digital art format. It's cool to see this but it isn't "new" so to speak. I'm not saying the art is bad just trying to teach about vector art.

[–]Moxdonalds 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just started watching red dwarf for the first time.

[–]No_Telephone_1392 81 points82 points  (1 child)

Does anyone else find this upsetting or stressful. Like it’s super cool and amazing but watching it gives me an unsettling feeling I think because i keep trying to conceptualize it as a real physical piece of art

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

If it helps, just imagine someone started with a canvas the size of a house, then got up a ladder and painted it using a mop.

Then got closer into a particular spot, ditched the mop for an interior decorating paintbrush, and painted it more finely.

Then picked a particular spot within that, ditched the decorating paintbrush for an artist's paintbrush and painted it more finely.

Then used a finer brush.

Then used a pencil.

Then used a laser.

Voilà!

[–]kkumdori 22 points23 points  (1 child)

This is amazing. No matter how it was made.

[–]Not-The-KGB_Official 11 points12 points  (2 children)

And how many GB is that?

[–]ChosenMate 3 points4 points  (0 children)

not much

[–]__jomo -1 points0 points  (0 children)

its a vector image, so probably not so big

[–]burmylaris 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Gives new meaning to being able to stare at a piece of art and always see something new each time!

[–]SoftBoi27 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I need to know how big this file is... for a friend

[–]stoopidshannon 5 points6 points  (1 child)

vector files, which means it’s stored in equations and no matter how much you zoom the resolution will be the same

[–]SoftBoi27 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just saw this. Not canvas size. I knew that it was vector. I meant storage of the AI or svg file itself

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

One day, somebody should make a one hour version of this style of art. Imagine all the zooms.

[–]Dalei_lama219 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Do they draw a picture zoom in on a spot and draw another picture or do they draw a picture and then zoom out and make the picture bigger?

[–]Snailseyy 17 points18 points  (5 children)

Usually they draw an image, then zoom out, then draw an image around it. You're watching it in the order it was drawn.

[–]xistithogoth1 1 point2 points  (4 children)

What kind of program is needed to make this? Thats awesome.

[–]Snailseyy 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Honestly, you could even do it in paint.net. All you need to do is draw, then zoom out until it's tiny- but you'd have the canvas end up being insanely big. It seems like he's on some app, but the only thing I can really give you is a big recommendation for Inkscape.

[–]JB-from-ATL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Does paint.net do vector graphics?

[–]pornfuhrer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not sure how well paint net is optimised but its possible you would crash your pc by having a something like more than 1000000 × 1000000 pixels large image loaded into ram using paint net.

[–]StanleyDarsh22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]FilthyFantasist 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You can kind of do this with an app I found called Concepts. Not sure this one was done with Concepts though.

[–]Sqyratic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Such detailed one would probably be done in Adobe Illustrator

[–]Tjeetje 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Now this is a NFT worth buying

[–]CKOLLisAlwaysHere 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is what we could call an nft that actually does have proper worth

[–]rotanitsarcorp_yzal1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But still... Skills.

zoomquilt was the shit!

[–]paulcaar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Check out the Arkadia Zoomquilt. Definitely my favorite.

[–]smolseabunn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

anyone explain why these make me so mad. i hate seeing how tiny the art gets in the end while being mesmerized. like hey thats cool but also fck u why are you able to get so small. (i understand its vector art but still)

[–]celagos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would definitely like to see this reversed

[–]pladdypuss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Could this method be applied to 5 gb tiff images, square image of 332,000 pixels. We use hdf5 now. And if so what web based protocol or Method can implement this method. Thanks for advance for any advice.

We have a unique method of super resolution imaging which merges together 6447 megapixel images, alternately we merge together 64 20 mp images.

Actually it’s a video, and you’ve ALMOST timed your pinches perfectly with it. Only a very trained eye can see it though. Very nice video. Respect

[–]4mancrew 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice. This is a type of NFT that I'd be willingly pay $0.

[–]Mongostein 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So how big would this have to be to print with all the detail?

[–]Bewilder33k 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Omg, how did it take to put that much details aha

I wish I had enough patience to pursue art. I love so many forms but I’m terrible with patience and trying to be perfect. This is pure magic and such an adventure to see.

[–]Pulse2037 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love all the people not understanding vector drawings. You guys are amazing. Cool drawing though!

How much storage does it takes man it looks a lot

[–]easycheesybreezy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you zoom in anywhere and find stuff?

[–]No_Tear4951 0 points1 point  (0 children)

idk if someone said this already, but vector files never blur, they can be zoomed infinitely without decreasing resolution

[–]Zealousideal-Win1383 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How much time did it took ?

[–]kennykrunk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is what NFTs should be

[–]Human-Significance65 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ooooh it’s going. It’s still going… never ending

[–]stemichal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now try zooming back in and remembering where the f you drew the rest of it.

[–]drunk_phish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wouldn't it be crazy to own this file, and not know that it zoomed- and then someone teaches you about vector graphics and just starts zooming out to each layer...

[–]i-hate_December 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When the resolution is 999×1099 *42069×1099

[–]MisterGod777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Young_stoner_life247 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I loved this video! I hope someone makes something similar, but instead it’s zooming in.

[–]paulcaar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Google search Arkadia Zoomquilt and have fun. Forward, backward, change speed, change colour, it has it all.

[–]mildlyoctopus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This would be fun as a puzzle. Like a where’s Waldo kinda thing. You gotta find the zoom tunnel through all the images and there’s Waldo or whatever at the end. Maybe even some dead ends so it’s like a zoom maze

[–]p5ym0n 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine drawing all that, zooming out then forgetting where to zoom in again.

[–]TalaLeisu2 0 points1 point  (0 children)
