Experiment with “wiggle” stereoscopy in video

Experiment with “wiggle” stereoscopy in video

This is a quick experiment with what’s called “wiggle” stereoscopy to enhance the perceived 3D feel of a rendered video. It doesn’t seem to make much of a difference, possibly because the camera flyover motion gives a strong sense of 3D without needing anything else….

Exploring Volume

Exploring Volume

The video above shows the work of artist Pablo Valbuena; working with projective augmentation of space: This project is focused on the temporary quality of space, investigating space-time not only as a three dimensional environment, but as space in transformation. For this purpose two layers…

Get some Photoshop Actions for Interesting Video effects

Get some Photoshop Actions for Interesting Video effects

I’ve recently been trying to explain to people what I’d like to do with architecture and augmented reality, and getting blank looks – i.e. failing. Most succinctly, I want to mess with existing architecture by virtually intervening with it, using a technology called Augmented Reality….

Animated VRML overlay

Animated VRML overlay

I have finally got animated VRML working, but somewhere along the line the JPEG library broke, so textures will have to wait. so I’m using a lower-quality GIF texture. Just a few more tweaks of the processing code, and I’ll feel happy to switch to…

Offline AR processing

Offline AR processing

This weekend I have spent many hours getting up to speed with C programming, and trying to compile library dependencies for ARToolkit. Until now, the ARToolkit was only useful for real-time processing of video using a webcam. The result the weekend’s work is that I…

littleBits

littleBits

From We Make Money Not Art blog: littleBits intro from ayah bdeir on Vimeo. littleBits is a growing library of preassembled circuit boards, made easy by tiny magnets. All logic and circuitry is pre-engineered, so you can play with electronics without knowing electronics. Tiny magnets…

3D Scan in Augmented Reality

3D Scan in Augmented Reality

Okay, so this has been a long time coming, but it’s hard not to admit that it is very cool. I’ve plugged a low-polygon VRML-based version of myself made years ago using my 3D scanner, into the Augmented Reality toolkit. Here is the model taken…

Augmented Reality Code

Augmented Reality Code

I’ve finally got the ARToolkit compiling and working. After a few nights of cursing and banging away at the keyboard, it turns out most of the problem was the webcam. Here’s a couple of very basic software demos, to show where I am now.  …

Beginnings of Crowd Simulation

Beginnings of Crowd Simulation

  The above clip is a very basic crowd simulation generated by Automatron for 3D Studio Max.   Today has been spent exploring Automatron, as a possible technology for simulating physical architectural engagement. I will try to determine how easy it would be to co-opt…

Return to 3D model animation

Return to 3D model animation

A couple of years ago I was working on a music video, using scans from the 3D scanner project. The body object would be create with 3DSOM, the head by FaceGen Modeller, lip-syncing by Magpie Pro, and character animation using Automatron, with the main animation…
