After Effects + MadMapper tutorial « 1024 Architecture Blog / MadMapper, Video Mapping, Quartz Composer plugins, whatever …
Hi, in this tutorial, we’ll use After Effects to produce a QuickTime movie that we will remap on a building. We’ll also need Photoshop to adjust our initial pictures. The effect we’re after is a Glowing-Scan of the building. The technique is rather simple, but it illustrates the process to achieve a photo-based architectural mapping. This tutorial assumes that you know the basics of Adobe Photoshop + After Effects and MadMapper. We’ll go from the initial photo on the left to the final mapping on the right: STEP#1: Select a building to map and make a few pictures of it. Here’s the first picture we’ll use, loaded into Photoshop: STEP#2 Now we’ll need to correct the perspective of this photo, in order to have a flat view of the building. STEP#3 Create some guides on the straight parts of the building. STEP#4 Now press Command-T to transform this layer. STEP#5 Since we have only one side of the building, we’ll need to duplicate it. STEP#7 Mark the features of the building. Congratualtions !
