Here is the next release in our ongoing effort to making vvvv your favorite tool for all-things projection mapping.
What is it for? Think multiple overlapping projections that you need to align, softedge, color correct,… If you’ve done this manually before you know what this can mean, especially in permanent installations…
You’d now simply use the Scalable Display Manager which runs a calibration procedure using cameras that have a view of the projections. The resulting Scalable Mesh Files can then be applied in vvvv using the VL.ScalableDisplay NuGet e.g. like this:
And you can test it yourself right away:
- Get a trial version of the Scalable Display Manager
- Get latest vvvv gamma 6.0 preview
- Install the VL.ScalableDisplay NuGet
