This technique comes from using a specialized camera, the Nishika n8000. The Nishika n8000 is a novelty camera made in the 80’s, and it is a film camera that takes four simultaneous photos from slightly different angles. When all four images are paired, it enables this unique three dimensional photo effect. Because of the recent popularity of the effect, there are many apps that attempt to duplicate it, but the true way to achieve the unblemished effect is with this camera, or a similar type of camera.
When the motion gif is exported, it leads the way to use the gif with other video assets. These are some videos I edited using the quadrascopic gifs and other video and photo elements.
