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 ! Related:  VJ Software and Mapping 3D Tutorial

MadMapper tutorial : use multiple video inputs « 1024 Architecture Blog / MadMapper, Video Mapping, Quartz Composer plugins, whatever … Hi, in this tutorial we’ll use Modul8 to input multiple video sources in MadMapper. You can download the MadMapper demo here: MadMapper website Here’s what we’re after: 3 different videos mapped all over some cubes: We’ll need Modul8 2.6.2 or more to do this tutorial. So launch Modul8. Load up 3 different footages. Go to /Preferences/Preview Panel and set the preview ratio to 12 by 3 (which is 3 times 4 by 3). Assign your first video to the first layer. Make two more layers, and repeat the same procedure. Go to the preferences again, under the Misc tab, and set the Syphon output to 960 by 240 (which is 3 times 320 by 240): For the clarity of this tutorial, I’ve slightly added some color to help distinguish the quads: Now send Modul8′s output to MadMapper by enabling the Syphon output (Command-Y) Launch MadMapper. In the Media tab, double click “Modul8 Main View”, which should be listed under the Syphon section. Now load a background picture to test the mapping setup.

VPT 6.0 « Conversations with spaces VPT 8 by HC Gilje, released may 2018. Video Projection Tool (VPT) is a free multipurpose realtime projection software tool for Mac and Windows. VPT 7 was downloaded over 100000 times, so in spite of a lot of other options available VPT still is popular. Among other things it can be used for projecting mapping on complex forms, adapt a projection to a particular space/surface, combine recorded and live footage, for multiscreen HD playback, for interactive installations using arduino sensors or camera tracking ++. VPT 8 is recommended for mac OS 10.12 or later and Windows 7 and 10 (although VPT 7 works great on Windows 7). and yes, it is still FREE! VPT 8 has a lot of under-the-hood changes.

How To Project On 3D Geometry Russian | French | Italian Note that due to the manual nature of the described approach your results will not be perfect, but can be quite good depending on your patience. Introduction All the above mentioned topics deal with the same problem: Find the pose (position, orientation) of an object or the pose and lens characteristics (field of view, shift) of a camera viewing that object. In cinematography with 3d visual effects the terms "match moving" or "camera tracking" are used to describe the problem of matching a real world scene with its virtual counterpart in order to mix them together seamlessly. For this task a list of software exists (boujou, 3d equalizer, ...) that makes the live of visual effects people easier. For realtime computergraphics the ARToolKit provides a way that works for certain situations (see ARTK+Tracker?

Beautiful Motion Graphics Created With Programming: Showcase, Tools and Tutorials Advertisement When you hear the word “creative”, what type of profession comes to mind? Maybe a graphic designer, painter, sculptor, illustrator, or writer? It’s unlikely that you would consider a “programmer” when thinking of creative fields of work. But programmers have the potential to be creative and come up with ideas or concepts that will impact others in positive ways. We often turn to programmers to solve mathematical-related problems, but the concept of mathematics in programming is what powers programmers to innovate. Beautiful Motion Graphics Created with Programming First we’ll look at some examples of beautiful and inspiring motion graphics created by programmers.
