It's actually comparatively simple these days. You decode your video file into its individual frames and then overlay them on top of each other, spreading them on a large canvas according to their position.

Of course if you are working from a standard converted version of the videos you also will have to throw out frames the standard converter broke, and even with the NTSC version you may need to fix the inverse telecine. I just ordered the DVDs to see how well they are suited.

I am impressed that they did a good job back then.

Oh okay, I know someone (I think it was Felony) mentioned you could do it in Photoshop so I might give it a try that way.

Here's an old one I did in the 1990s.

This one took a little more effort to recreate. Had to use some creative content aware fills, healing brush, clone stamps and cut and pastes in addition to the standard photomerge to remove the "PRESENTS" overlaid text.

I love all of these. Some of them would make really great prints too.
