"Mapping" an entire stage...?



  • Hi.

    This is possibly a silly question. Either because it's super easy or it's impossible -- I don't know which. 

    Is there any way to change the rotation of an entire stage, either locally or globally?

    Basically, in one scene I have 7 movie player/projectors lined up next to each other and I would like to be able to map the whole stage to my projection surface so that I don't have to do each individual projector. (Because the show is on a mixed bill in a festival for which there is almost no tech time and so I'd like to be able to get the projection focused in as little time as possible). It's very straightforward -- center hung front projection -- and all I'd really need is the ability to do rotate and/or spin it?

    I'm using the Stage Scaler actor to get very close to what I will need and now I just need minor tweaks. 

    Thanks in advance! 

    Jake

    You can if you only use 3D projectors (not the standard Projector).

    Then you can use the '3D Stage Orientation' actor to move a stage in 3D, either locally or globally.



  • Thanks! A friend also just schooled me in this and it works great. Got addicted to using Izzymap, so I've not really worked with the 3d projectors. 

    I appreciate it!
