Flip and Motion

Flip and Motion lenticular printing is a multi-step process consisting of creating a ”lenticular image” from at least two existing images, and combining it with a lenticular lens.

This process can be used to create various frames of animation (for a motion effect), offsetting the various layers at different increments (for a 3D effect), or simply to show a set of alternate images which may appear to transform into each other (morphing effect). Once the various images are collected, they are flattened into individual, different frame files, and then digitally combined into a single final file in a process called interlacing.

From there the interlaced image can be printed directly to the smooth side of the lens or it can be printed to a substrate (ideally a synthetic paper) and laminated to the lens.
