Thanks for the pointers, insight and knowledge. All very helpful and good information to digest.
I downloaded the videos off a list from youtube ( copyright is in place) and the exhibition is part of public facing element on vaccines. The content was existing videos given with consent for the project. I am playing about 12 videos on a loop and all was fine till I realised the designer had put a rounded rectangle in place.....
I take you points re warping. I will follow your guides ref re-using the mask directly and see how I get on. All the scene are set up with a user actor so I can trial it quickly enough.
I thought It was because of my projector definition
What is your projector definition? The higher the resolution the better (obviously) but also understand that the larger the image you're trying to project on a surface, the more visible the individual pixels will be.
I have a case where I want to use a user actor for mapping a lot of small pieces, but I want to use the same mapping for an alpha layer, but the pieces in the two need to have different blend modes. It would be great if the projector blend mode had some other options, like when the mapper was engaged the blend modes still worked, so they could be additive, transparent opaque OR mapper. and when the mapper was used and transparent was selected it would set all the mapper pieces to transparent. If it was set back to mapper then it would use the blend setting of the individual pieces. I think there are other options for doing this, but a way of having the smae mapping with different blend modes for using alpha layers with different projectors into the mapper would be cool.
Hi, so trying out the suggestions - it would be great to have a dynamic control of the contour of the tiles. - May be here the 3D Quad Distort object has the highest flexibility. But I am not sure how to tweak all the parameters of "3D Quad Distort" to shape on-the-fly. So it needs a few more experiments.
No problem. About four years ago I spent three days going absolutely mad trying to figure this exact issue out. The forum pointed me in the right direction and now I include this step in all the shows I make.
