So there’s a party. And you’ve got a computer. Great.
What can you do in 15 minutes?

Open up MadMapper, launch a few apps from the MAD_Lab, and you’re good to go !
What’s the MAD_Lab you may ask … ?

It is a set of tiny little applications designed to provide content for your MadMapper parties… yes, no more VJloops, no more AfterEffects rendering.
All the content is generated on location, in realtime.
FYI the MAD_Lab will be available soon (next week ?) for all MadMapper users, for free…

Here’s what Pier can do in 15 minutes, at a party in the Drome, FR.
Outlining the trees ? … mmm, not really a problem !

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:

Make The Line Dance / Video

Posted in experimental, MadMapper, video mapping with tags , , , on March 21, 2011 by Francois Wunschel

Video report of an Augmented Dance session test.
I finally managed to reduce the latency a bit, perceptually at least.
Using a Kinect for skeleton tracking,
QC to render the lines (+1024_ParticleWarfare + 1024_Rope + 1024_Skeleton),
MadMapper (+Syphon) to match video and real action,
MaxForLive for the randomly generated piano sounds.
And a Canon 5D SLR for the shooting.
