Projection is cool

in art •  2 months ago





It's just a box. I've been trying to further familiarize myself with projection in 3D lately. The way it works is literally like a projector.

Imagine you have a movie projector projecting on the inside of a box, but properly aligned so what is being projected is a room into a room.(Does that make sense?) Anyway if you walk around it would look like you're in the projected room. I think there are some real life installations like this.

In VFX this is used a lot especially for backgrounds. As you can see in this example there's a lot of distortion, but in far background elements there wouldn't be any, so it's perfect for far away mountains or forests and doesn't have the overhead of rendering all that stuff out with proper calculations. Hopefully I can think of a way to use this for something cool soon.

Thanks for looking peeps!

Fascinating. How did you build the projection? Was it a Project from View type of UV?


Thanks @trinumedia, yea you project it through a camera, so you can look through that camera to get it lined up, then use a different camera to move through the environment.

Nice 3D render.


Cool...Its like an architecture softwares... What is it name of this one?


Thanks @chuchurz, this is Cinema 4D.
