I saw on Facebook a video of the gimmick with face cards changing.. It looked god awful.. You could still see the original card after it changed. I don't see anyone really being fooled by the cards.

Really glad I avoided this lol

Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Ellusionist agreed to my 'request' for a refund. They sent me the form they require and it is on its way back to CA. My email went to:

support@ellusionist.com

May not be the one they want you to use for refunds, but it worked. I just replied to the email that my order confirmation/info was on.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Funny thing is, if you were to combine the gimmick from this GIF with Marc's Shapeshifter color change(released on a Ellusionist DVD, ironically), you'd have a much better effect than CHANGE.

Was this an item officially sponsored by the Café? If so, I'm suprised the thread lasted this long!

The Café sponsors effects? Didn't know that...do you mean the PMs we get from Steve Brooks about effects from time to time?

The thread has been ok, I think (well, other than my dog turd photos!). I think most of the time, as long as you stick to the effect and don't get too personal with a creator or company, things are ok. Generally Smile

Yes, it was promoted by Steve brooks, also 3 or 4 members here seem to of seen it before release and gave it glowing reviews - such as..

" Having known the method for a few months now, I can testify that it's even more exciting than the effect itself."
"This is one of the coolest and freshest principles in magic, and I'm excited to finally be able to use it. You won't be dissapointed. "
"This is really great stuff. The technology isn't that new, but the way it's utilised here is astounding. I saw early prototypes about a year ago and not only is it SO much fun to play with, it looks incredible too.

I can't wait to see the final gimmicks. It isn't often that something so practical and low-tech is hidden from an industry like ours, I have no doubt it'll make people think in a radically different way about visual magic."

"Lloyds going to break the Internet with this thing! This looks Soooooo good! "

Hype on the Café...nah, surely not.

Okay to be fair, Magic_Maddy sent me a video performance of him performing a routine with Change.

It was actually really nice. The gimmick is still obvious to me.. But his routine was great.

Well, we already know it can work for the camera, but most of the reviews from purchasers seem to imply working it live with real specs will be a problem.
this tech was developed in the 1940's, I remember getting quite a few examples in cereal boxes, it seemed clever, when I was 6 years old

Lloyd Barnes:

"THIS IS A COMPLETELY REVOLUTIONARY NEW CONCEPT [except its not new or revolutionary] that allows you to do slow motion visual magic completely under your control [unless the spectators decide to move, in which case it's under their control]. Imagine being able to do magic that looks like something from a movie, in real life [as long as "real life" means one spectator strapped to a chair unable to move]. It's completely revolutionary [it's not]. It's complete real life magic... There's only 999 copies so you've got to jump on this today... We're limited to just 999 copies [again, nope] in the warehouse and if you don't jump on this they're gonna go."

But wasn't it blatantly obvious to anyone with more than one brain cell that it was lenticular technology in use? Jeesh.

I think people below a certain age range may well not have bumped into lenticular rulers, posters, etc, unless they've been lucky. I'm over 30, and at primary school many kids had the lenticular "3D" rulers, and more recently I have seen lenticular posters, but I doubt "everyone" is aware of it, and due to the presentation of the trailer, the claims of "revolutionary concept" plus the misleading animation on the buy page, I don't doubt for a second that even those who are aware of lenticular products will have, in many cases, been fooled into ruling that method out.

Ellusionist have sold out and are ordering 1,000 more sets. It says on their website...

"NOTE: CHANGE SOLD OUT in less than a day. We're extending a pre-order to allow another 1,000 people to purchase, and orders will begin shipping next week."

It's hilarious to think so many people have paid good money for this.

Customers - Smile

Me - Smile
