While working with Deli, primeproducts.be created a giant iPhone (no copyright infringement intended!) for us, driven by -oh irony- a 40″ Samsung screen. (mental note: to be replaced by an apple TV when available).
Today will be the first real test of the resolume/touchOSC-setup, as I will be trialing in public. The friends over at Roadcompanion asked me to create live visuals during their try-out on stage, using multiple blended projectors and an extra 40″ totem. Public dates to follow!
Images and videos are recorded with the EOS 5D, animated and prepared in After-Effects CS6 and rendered out using the DXV-codec 2.2. During the live performance the audio coming from the PA is analysed and routed into Resolume. The ipad is used to control the active layers and effects and to manage the show over Open Sound Control.
The videostream coming from the Epoccam HD app on the iphone is directshowed into a Resolume slot and live mixed with the images/videos/resolume generated lines.
By extruding text in After-Effects CS6, using the raytrace engine, you can actually build real 3D figures, including shadows and reflection. The above image is entirely made in AE CS6, without using any plugin’s. The spheres and the bars connecting them are actually extruded points. Like this .
Be prepared for some long rendertimes. 1-minute animation on my dual-quad core mobile workstation 24 hours + …
Working on a concept for a multiscreen setup, using up to 4 blended and bézier-mapped projectors, based on resolume arena, combined with a black magic capture card for real-time powerpoint/keynote playback. All controled using an user adaptable control pannel running over wifi on an iPad sending out osc-controls.
If anyone has some experience with this kind of setup, I am always interested in your opinion and/or experiences!
I am at the stage of a working prototype, waiting to receive a triple head to go and some additional projectors to test.
Met de komst van de Adobe Creative Cloud formule kan je op een vrij eenvoudige en betaalbare manier starten met After-Effects.
Ben je grafisch ontwerper, monteur of web-ontwikkelaar en wil je je werk naar een hoger niveau tillen door er video en animatie aan toe te voegen, contacteer me dan nog vandaag voor een Jump-Start-Cursus After-Effects.
Na drie dagen maak je je eigen composities en exporteer je video vol effecten naar flash, mp4 of youtube.
Alle nieuwe tools in de CS6 versie werden ondertussen in de cursus geintegreerd, dus leer je meteen ook een camera te tracken, 3D-tekst te gebruiken of de ray-trace engine te gebruiken.
Probably the first under water 3D camera track using Adobe After-Effects CS6 – added some 3D txt, a shadow catcher and some bubbles. The Smart was already parked on the only free parking spot available around Nemo 33. After tracking in After-Effects, I exported the camera to 3D studio Max 2013 using the great AE3DExport script by urbanspaceman. I added some floating teapots and rendered everything back to AE for compositing. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Just for fun and to celebrate the new filters in Photoshop, i remade the tilt-shift animation as seen on this post.
To overcome the photoshop limitation of not being able to use the new filters on a videolayer, I had to make a png-sequence out of them and created a litle droplet with the brand new CS6 tilt-shift action in it.
Lowstreetmedia supported Infrabel’s corporate communication departement in the realization of their multiscreen synchronized animation setup, explaining visitors of the main Infrabel entrance the three key-values of Infrabel.
