Video Projections on 3D Objects

May 20th, 2009

Lately I’m really into these video projections on 3D objects and buildings. I always wondered how they do that, how they match the projected animations with the objects. Last November there was a workshop for the students of Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd how to do this with vvvv, a toolkit for real time video synthesis. The students got quite a headstart because they had a scale model of the building and digital 3D models to start with. The position of the spectator is of course quite important to obtain the desired visual effect. If you want to try it out yourself, then you might want to read this guide on the vvvv website: How To Project On 3D Geometry. You can see the results of the workshop here, unfortunately they only used the scale model to show the final animations.

    You should check out the projection onto the Auckland Town Hall in Auckland NZ, which was used to help Telecom (a telecommunications company) launch a new network. The graphics swapped in and out every few minutes, one graphic was made up of all sorts of lollies….quite exceptional
