"Projection Mapping uses everyday video projectors, but instead of projecting on a flat screen (e.g. to display a PowerPoint), light is mapped onto any surface, turning common objects of any 3D shape into interactive displays. More formally, projection mapping is “the display of an image on an arbitrarily complex surface”.
We had never used the software before, and were both very new to the concept of 'video mapping', so we began by watching a tutorial providing us with instructions about how to work with the software. We also watched a couple of examples of 'projection mapping' in action - the results are incredible.
We began by creating a layer as a solid block of projected colour to fit onto a triangular form we had in the space.
We then added another triangular form of a different colour.
Our next challenge was to project an image rather than a block of colour onto a surface.
And then combined this with the other shapes.
We then progressed to using a video source as the imagery for the projected shape.
