View Full Version : 3D projection VJ Revolution Begins
6th April 2004, 08:24 PM
This is a projection system that i have been working on for more than a few years. I created exclusively to use in performances.
check the site: www.vjholofx.com (http://www.vjholofx.com)
It uses projectors, polerizers, lenses and multiple particle streams. you don't see nothing until the light hits the field. It is self-contained and can be done large. up to 8 ft height and however long. had to get some specialized stuff manufactured but all in all this thing cost under 10 thousand us toi prototype and way less to build big.
wwhile it is not small it is moble and ready to roll
we will be shooting the system with a professional cam guy this weekend and will post new videos soon after that.

Thats bloody awesome if you've finally got something that works.
How do you suspend light in mid air like that? Freaky.

Impressive. I can't wait to see more. Please keep us posted on this.

Fantastic. I?ve been looking into this type of technology for ages, and I?m glad to see practical applications outside of a lab environment.
I would be extremely interested to know how you did it, so I?m really excited to hear you plan to share some of the information with the VJ community. Though I don?t blame you for letting all the info out right away. ;)
I?m sure you?ve worked really hard to get this working, so congratulations on making it so far! Can?t wait to see more.

Can you elaborate on the kind of content and content delivery mechanism (not on the projection technic itself that for sure is your little secret soon to be revealed ;) What does it take to make Content for this and how do play this content (special program you made yourself, is it OpenGL based? What about Stereoskopic films?)
Great stuff and I probably can speak for the whole community that your sentence:
Through the parties and collaborations I am making the technology available and accessiable to the VJ community first as my contribution to what i believe is a powerful new art form. In addition i like the community spirit i have seen with vj's...
is extremely welcome. you could easily change the whole position for the VJs if the system is usable!

way cool stuff.
I'll be visiting your site on / from April 10th to check out the new video's of your stuff.
Same questions as others, what do you need to send the projector? would anything capable of using .3DS files be suitable? (if so I'm jumping up and down already!).
:nod: :yep: :nod: :jump2:

thanks for the imput everyone.
the content requirements aren't to much for the first generation. stuff has to be 3D in as it utilizes certain rules. These rules determine how we percieve 3D. perspective, continual parallax, divergence so on and so on...i definitely will post that stuff on the site after the next filming. a rotating beer bottle will look better than one that just sits there. video of a moving street scene(where things in the front move faster than things in the back) will work better than a photo of the same street scene.
however, as we move to the the next phase of the projection system(hopefully by the end of this month) that's a bit different story. right now i'm working on a program(mac and PC) that will allow to format video, 3d(motion builder .fbx, .3ds and .obj as well as open gl to go directly into the system. this program will work with what i have now. i'll make it availiable here to memebers of the community for free. people might find it useful for other things like controlling multiple video projections without having to have your head in the computer screen all the time.(this will make sense when you see the app)

all sounds fascinating. i eagerly await more detail! :)

thank you for your contribution.
eagerly await your software, hardware and ideas :-)

Here is an update of the system that i'm working on. as with any development project there was good news and bad new. Good news is that video is look pretty cool in the system. Please check the link: www.vjholofx.com/3dprojection.htm
There's a link for some new movies. The bad news is that when i push the system in make a more dense particle field it becomes a bit unstable and the image becomes unstable. I have a solution for this and will implement in the next days. If it goes well the image quality will be even better and then i can concentrate on the software side of it. i posted also on the same page a movie of how altering some parameters make the imagery more clear. as i finish the next stage of refinement i will post here to let you guys know.
thanks to everyone for their positive imput. Hopefully we will get this thing up and out into the performance stage in the next month or so.

Great! Really Good! Apresentations in Brasil? Let us know!:yep:
19th April 2004, 03:51 AM
this could change it all.
so cool you rule

Is this real?

good stuff !!! :yep:
i have make a mechanical holographik installation with the stroboscope and classic animation technics

Blue Man Group in Vegas has something like that, although on a much lager scale. They used lifesize mannequins for their, and someone did a similar piece with plaster casts at burningman.
Very low tech for such a great effect...
Still want to know if this thing is real though...
Near as I can tell from the footage:
This system uses ultrasonic fog particles for the projection medium. Then polarized light intersects from a x/y/z (or a x/xy/y)projection system. When the polarized light intersects on the particles, it becomes brighter and gives a pseudo-depth effect. I've thought about doing this myself, and am happy to see someone actually do it...
That is, unless it's just a hoax...
Anyone know what the real deal is?

excellent progressive work
your work looks great and letting vjs in on the process is commendable.
i cant wait to see it

i really wanna see what you did but the link is going to ups page that's mean nothing!!!

the threads nearly 6 years old. you could always youtube or google it and get something that way :)
