Les Grandes Tables de l’Ile Seguin

Posted in les Grandes Tables, Uncategorized with tags , on September 20, 2011 by Francois Wunschel

So the restaurant is finally open.
Yes, we also do “proper” architecture at 1024. Not just the virtual thing. The real, tangible, physical space.
Food is 100% organic, veg, cooked by star chief Arnaud Daguin.
The official opening is this coming friday, from 5PM, featuring a happy mix by our friend Etienne De Crecy.
And it is soooo refreshing to have the liberty to surf from virtual to physical, from art installations to architecture, from software to hardware.We love this job !
Next serie of photos will be… night shots. But we still got a few problems with the LED lighting, that should be resolved pretty soon.

Mapping a building | After Effects + MadMapper tutorial

Posted in MadMapper with tags , , , , on June 10, 2011 by Francois Wunschel

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.
You can download a demo version of MadMapper at MadMapper’website

We’ll go from the initial photo on the left to the final mapping on the right:

I’ve been working this week at a new particle engine for QC, featuring EmitterStructure input, Image input and Line based emission. The plugin will certainly be in use at 3 major shows we’ll be having this autumn.
It currently also allows to grow hair-like trailing particles.
As Salvador Dali said: ” Architecture has to be soft and hairy”.
Here’s a test output:

Here’s is a littler picture showing our past performance at the Mapping Festival 2009 in Geneva, Swiss.
This is actually the end of the perf. , when the building literally explodes.

The whole show was live warped on the facade of the Usine, using
our latest mapping software, developped in-house.
The video spans on 3 beamer, each 12k.
