Jurassic lark! TikToker uses warp filter to transform himself into dinosaurs
- Felix Gabler, 22, from Tübingen, Germany, transforms into different dinosaurs
- In a series of inventive TikTok videos the student uses a filter to warp his body
- He creates illusion by moving as the camera captures different parts of image
An inventive man has transformed himself into different types of dinosaurs using only his body and very rudimentary editing.
The TikTok warp scan feature sees a bar move across the screen as a snap is taken, enabling users to change position with often amusing results.
Many TikTok users have been getting creative – using the filter to appear to grow extra limbs or warp their face.
But Mr Gabler upped the game by using it to transform himself into two prehistoric dinosaurs.
Recording the pair of hilarious videos in his home Mr Gabler warped his body to resemble a rather plump T-Rex and a long necked, leaf-eating Brachiosaurus.
Mr Gabler said: ‘It was literally just me and my friend goofing around and coming up with ways to make the T-Rex more realistic.’
Felix Gabler, a 22-year-old student from Tübingen, Germany, shared the humorous video to TikTok. Here he is seen holding out his leg which then appears to be a T-Rex tail
He quickly moves his leg back into place and shuffles forward to give the appearance of a wider body
Mr Gabler is seen crouching on all fours to emulate the short legs of a Brachiosaurus before moving his head up to give the illusion of a long neck
In one of the videos Mr Gabler is seen crouching on all fours to emulate the short legs of a Brachiosaurus.
He then quickly stands when the moving bar reaches his head, giving the appearance of a long neck.
In a second video he holds his leg out behind him to create the illusion of a tail as he transforms into a T-Rex.
