Course Introduction and some examples.
Resource: Introduction 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:/
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

Notes: Scouting Locations:
- Know your script.
In this case think of your theme when looking for locations
- Scout at the right time.
When is the shot best? Look at timing… food at lunchtime? Activity during a soccer game. Find out when things are happening?
- Look at light.
Where can you reasonably expect the light tobe? Will it be pointing directly at the camera? Check light conditions for your equipment.
- Follow the sun.
Outdoors need light too… or do they? Is the sun pointing at camera at a certain time?
- Check for power supplies.
Will batteries be enough? What equipment wil you be using?
- Listen to the Space
Can you use the sound in place or will it have to be replaced? Is it too noisy/windy etc.? Is there music etc that will suit a shot?
- Examine the elements.
Rain, Sleet, Sun etc but also external factor such as janitors or deliveries etc.
- Decide where to set up.
Where is the best shot with all this in mind? Where is the action space?
- Get permission
Do you need permission to shoot here? Ask people’s permission etc…
- Evaluate the area.
What is happening in the area? Will there be interference? Wifi? Phone etc….
- Take notes!
Take Phots, thoughts and notes on the locations. Lighting needed? Sound set up needed? Transitions and shot ideas.
