Mapping the SAM

Posted in MadMapper, Perspective Lyrique, video mapping with tags , , on September 3, 2011 by Francois Wunschel

We’re currently in Singapore mapping the Art Museum.
The setup was quite complicated, 5x Christie HD18k, with 2 stacks on the sides.
Output Resolution was a huge 3840 * 720, fed from a QC app to MadMapper thanks to Syphon.

The QC output:
a large decomposition of all the facades, animated.

Adjustments in MadMapper:

And the projected result:

MadMapper / Neuchatel

Finally, MadMapper in action in Neuchatel.

And a photo of my computer screen, showing QC + MadMapper + Live all running in conjunction. This time I didn’t even bother compiling a custom app, and ran the show directly from the QC viewer. Sweet, as it allows for some live patching.

Perspective Lyrique in Neuchatel

Posted in MadMapper, Perspective Lyrique with tags , , , on April 19, 2011 by Francois Wunschel

We’ll be showing Perspective Lyrique in Neuchatel / CH this week.
From 22nd to 24th May April.

This time we’re displaying to 3 outputs, sending a massive 3072*1100 texture from our custom app to MadMapper, at 60FPS.
The show is still controlled by Ableton Live.

Perspective Lyrique, the video

Here’s the official video report of our interactive video mapping in Lyon.
Running via a custom QCapp + custom plugins, connected to Ableton Live for audio playback and realtime analysis.
Projected using 4x Christies R20k beamers.

Perspective Lyrique / MadMapper

After a SSD Laptop crash, finally I took some time to snapshot the Madmapper+ QC + Ableton Live + CueMix view.`More to come in the next post ;°).

Perspective Lyrique / on location tests

Posted in MadMapper, Perspective Lyrique, video mapping with tags , , on December 7, 2010 by Francois Wunschel

we just spent all night tinkering our projection, trying to match the actual architecture as close as possible. Thanks to MadMapper, the task was rather easy, although we found a few really annoying UI bugs. Due to some modelling inaccuracies, I had to split the projection in 3 parts, each perspective corrected. Nevertheless, we ended up being roughly satisfied (but ya know the tune… I can’t get no …).
Then we took a few photos on location. And as usual with video mapping, the parts you design the quickest are the best…

Here’s the building relighted in 3d (Ambient Occlusion + Soft Shadows + Toon shader):

And the headshot, fully voice-activated (AO + SS + 8 morph targets depending on the tone of the voice):

And the MadMapper setup:

Tomorrow, I’ll try another Madmapper technique, using either grid warped (but still perspective corrected) or maybe camera pose estimation (with an openGL matrix output-to-file feature, then back in QC).

Perspective Lyrique / Headbuilding

Posted in event / project, experimental, Perspective Lyrique with tags , , , on December 1, 2010 by Francois Wunschel

And finally the headmap applied on the 3d model, morphing-ready. The audience will be able to sing a few phonemes in realtime, and also a few expressions, like fear, smile or anger. I’m eager to see the end result projected on the building, as there’s a chance it might look like crap. Pertinent video mapping is always difficult to achieve.
