Intro-Presentation

Example: Projection Mapping

Quite and interesting one as they are projecting onto a cylinder as opposed to flat surfaces. What challenges does that pose?

Inspiration: Raspberry Pi Ideas

The raspberry Pi is a cheap (sub 35 dollar is the goal) computer that you can programme fairly easily with scriptng languages. Make simple games and robotic type thingies fairly easily and fairly cheaply. Pity Maplin closed in Derry:/

Example: Photogrammetry

This is an outdoor set up using a drione but you can use your phone to do smaller objects fairly easily. Powerful addition to the 3d content creation toolbox.

 

 

Introduction to 3d content and a segue to AR.

Concept to use in Various Platforms:

3d Content Considerations:

  • Real Time Vs Pre-Rendered
  • Platform Limitations
  • Poly Count
  • Texture Size(s)
  • Texture Types
  • Lighting and Shadows
  • File Type
  • Bone limitations
  • Animation types and limitations
  • Resolution
