How can a projection mapping artwork look as good as the animation looking on screen?
As a beginner in video mapping you’ll ask this question often and might go a long way to get to the answer. You can create the best 3d animation ever and it might not look like the way you had on your screen at all. The other day you go and give it a try on a different surface with a different projector and with an animation content that is just really simple and it works much better.
Animation stills and photos of projection mapping artworks will never look the same of course.
That’s one of the most exciting part of creating 3d mapping artworks. Different buildings different surfaces different projectors and different content. Every project is a new challenge and a new opportunity to learn something about it. And basically that’s the only way to get to a point when you can more or less predict how a projected image will look like on that specific facade. And you can create your animation content accordingly so it will look perfect on your building.
