LPMT - Little Projection-Mapping Tool

(C) 2011, HVA - Hermanitos Verdes Architetti / Modena, Italy

Flattr this git repo

LPMT is a little projection-mapping tool for use in our office, it is developed in C++ using OpenFrameworks. It’s based on simple quad warping paradigm, and, though rather simple, can be used to achieve complex and professional projection-mapping sets.

This is the up-to-date version of lpmt, based on OpenFrameworks 007

DOWNLOAD:

At the moment LPMT is only available as source code, and we've only tested it on linux systems but thanks to the multi-platform nature of OpenFrameworks it should work out-of-the-box on Windows and OsX too.

up-to-date code (git repository): http://gitorious.org/projection-mapping

for the github fans, the repository is mirrored here: https://github.com/hvfrancesco/ProjectionMapping

if you don't like git, you can find a rarely updated zip file: http://www.hv-a.com/projectTiles/projection-mapping.zip

MAIN FEATURES:

  • up to 36 independent projection surfaces (remember you can use a solid black quad even as a mask)
  • possible content: solid color, images, video, live-cam, slideshows, smoothly changing solid colors, and more …
  • customizable green-screen (chromakey) for video and live-cam sources
  • horizontal and vertical flipping for image, video and live-cam content
  • independent opacity settings for each content element
  • customizable colorization for each content element
  • several blending-modes for projection surfaces
  • on-screen editable masks
  • bezier-warping for projection on curved surfaces
  • grid-warping, with user defined grid density
  • spherize deformation preset
  • realtime live-masking with Kinect
  • customizable video speed and volume
  • save/load project set to/from xml file
  • syncronized start for video elements
  • vertex snap function for adjacent quads
  • cam snapshot background for rough positioning of projection surfaces
  • customizable speed for slideshows and color transitions
  • synced multi-projectors shows with adjustable edge-blending
  • control and setup through a rich set of OSC messages
  • a powerful timeline to trigger events and control LPMT projections

KEY COMMANDS:

’s' – saves settings to xml (projection_settings.xml in data folder) ‘l’ – loads settings from xml file

‘a’ – adds new quad ‘>’ – go to next quad ‘<’ – go to previous quad '+' - raise active quad position in layers pile '-' - lower active quad position in layers pile ‘z’ – selects first gui page for active quad settings ‘x’ – selects second gui page for active quad settings ‘c’ – selects gui page for active quad corner position fine-tuning ‘q’ – fills window with active quad ‘1’ – shows general settings page of gui

‘g’ – toggles gui (for quad warping with mouse gui must be switched off) ‘f’ – toggles fullscreen mode ‘w’ – toggles cam snapshot window background ‘m’ – toggles mask-editing mode ‘b’ – toggles surface bezier/grid warping editing mode

‘spacebar’ – toggles projection/setup modes ‘r’ – resyncs all videos and slideshows in all quads to starting point ‘p’ – starts projection ‘o’ – stops projection

‘n’ – connects to a MostPixelsEver sync server

‘F10’ – toggles timeline interface ‘F9’ – toggles timeline BPM reference grid ‘F11’ – toggles stage visibility under timeline ‘F12’ – play/stop timeline

TODO:

  • midi control
  • DMX control
  • timeline sync with MTC midi
