Projection mapping with jitter

August 1, 2012 | 3:38 pm

Hey folks,

I would like to explore the possibility of doing projection/video mapping with Max.
I know there are third party utilities out there that do this but I am trying to minimize
my reliance on third party software.

Another motivation for doing it in Max is that the video mapping module will be part
of a larger performance environment that will support things like sensors, sound, lighting, etc.

Are there any jitter examples out there that map video on to geometry?

Thanks,
Anthony

look in the toolbox. someone has already made a very good one in jitter. cannot remember name though.

HC Gilje’s VPT : http://hcgilje.wordpress.com/vpt/

Also, look at jit.gl.cornerpin

@pid
I did a search of the Toolbox but no tools come up for video mapping with any useable patches.
If you can remember the name, that might help me.

@Scott
I will definitely look into VPT and jit.gl.cornerpin as well.
Thanks.

all of my mappings at http://www.vimeo.com/videomapping are done in max .

by tweaking jit.matrix ‘s xyz vertex data and texture coords data (as described in Appendix B: The OpenGL Matrix Format )
my patches to complicated to share (al lot of javascript ) but if you need any help on patching you can ask me.

Thanks MJ, will do.

Hi, good to be there! This work was projected in Lyon city area around 2010 http://youtu.be/eJ1m_Y7v4T8
The patch I have used for the parallax adjustment during the projection was build from one of Andrew Benson’ s Jitter Recipes Books (don’t remember exactly). I’m using jit.cornerpin as well now. I thought the attached apppatcher to go to the appstore since we have a tutorial but unfortunately I don’t have much to continue. H+ is a digital art galerie in Lyon city center http://www.h-pl.us

I am looking for a solution to this problem as well.
Corner pinning is one thing, but a more comprehensive suite of tools like those available in other applications like http://www.madmapper.com
A component like this one available for Touch Designer – http://www.derivative.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Kantan_Mapper
would be great.

http://meshwarpserver.org is based on max/jitter and is opensource. It easily competes with madmapper, but has the advantage that it uses your own customised meshes to map, and has a softedge function built in as well.

http://hcgilje.wordpress.com/vpt/ is very powerfull as well, but focuses more on contentmanagement. and it is based on max/jitter, too.
