  1. Has anyone successfully projection mapped a 3d object with a minimum of 2 projector, then rotated the real world object and linked the rotation to the 3d model rotation tween layer in Watchout while keeping the mapping calibration? Would this work? A typical example would be a car on a revolve, 3d projection mapped from 2 projectors, the revolve would be turning slowly. The encoded positional data of the revolve would be linked to the rotation tween track for the model of the car in WO so the model mimicked the position of the actual car. Would the initial projector calibration stay valid
  2. Hi I have seen it done before but can not for the life of me remember now how it was done. I have a 18 projector mapping to be made and would like to know the best procedure for using two production machines, one to map left side and the other to map right side simultaneously (two operators) . How can you do this and then afterwards merge the shows and mapping data to one production machine. Many Thanks Matt
  3. Hello, Was just playing with the 3D projection mapping tool. I see that sometimes when I map it to an object, the actual projector gets lost in 3D space and I am unable to find it. Is there a way to "gather" the projectors? or have a list of what projectors I have, so that I can edit them via the list? Since I am already asking a question, I might as well ask another... How can I be certain that when I import a 3DS file, that it is placed at a Z of 0. In my tests I found that my content, and my 3D object were aligned in the X and Y axis, but not the Z. Thanks!
  4. Hello all. I'm a newbie here so I apologise if this question has an obvious answer or has already been answered in a different thread. I've looked at the tutorials on the Watchout website and I still cannot answer my question. So.... Is it possible to map multiple objects individually or would they all need to be in the same 3D model. For example if I had an object centre stage, one stage left and one stage right. Could I then reposition these objects and realign the maps accordingly. Again, apologies if this is obvious. I'm trying to workout if Watchout would be right for my p
  5. Anyone have a clue why I am loosing mapping on the Projector that I am swapping? The display computer should not see a projector swap as it has an emulator. This has happened 3 times now on different positions (running 8 Christie DWU675-E projectors) And I have to redo the mapping on the swapped projector (and yes I am saving the file once mapping is corrected) Any clue would be much appreciated
  6. As the market change ('cause that's what final customers ask for) Capable 3d and mapping softwares are more and more used for performances, And now working with media files made "in point of view" of the projectors, even with the grid warp deformation of watchout or of projector become difficult and very long to setup, with very complicated mapping shows. the time between setup a system and the show itself has shorten. these days production companies rent a hall, convention center rooms, for 2 or 3 days . 1st day is setup of evrything, video, watchout etc...and rehearsals the same da
  7. Hello i hope anyone can help me because i cant really understand the source of my problems , Im using following Setup as Display Computer: W7 64bit Service Pack1 Intel Xeon E5440 @2x 2.83GHz 16Gb ram NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700 4095MB and 512MB Video *************************************** I want to play 7 DIFFERENT Videos on this Display Computer with one Full-HD projector. The reason why i have 7 videos is because i have to map them with the Corners Tween to 7 different canvases. All together they are one full-HD video but they are splitted for the mapping. They got following
  8. Hello WO community, first sry for my bad english, i try my best and sry if the topic was discussed before but i did not find a satisfying solution. I'm new to WO and by now i tested most of its features. No my question is: Is there a way to do mapping inside of a single Display Area like common mapping software can do or do i need such a software additionally? My goal is to use only one projector for 3 thin but very high canvases. The canvases are parallel but moved in x and z position. It's clear that i could do this perfectly with three Displays, doing the perspective correcti
  9. Hi, Here's a link to Vimeo footage featuring projection mapping with WATCHOUT on a 90 m facade in Brazil. Thanks to Peter Lindquist at KJPL, Sao Paulo, for sending the link. http://vimeo.com/39366357 Regards, Jacquie
  10. Hi, Start (or finish, depending on your time zone) Friday with some great viewing on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/36431260 Dataton WATCHOUT was supplied by SAV and the show covered a massive 77 x 10.5 m projection area. Regards, Jacquie
