    Simulated reflection using live camera

    by Robbie the Robot » Thu Jan 16, 2020 11:03 am

    Hi all,
    I thought I'd share a trick I came up with for a live performance in which I wanted to simulate the look of the performers being reflected on a water surface. I used a live camera feed of the stage and brought it into MadMapper using Syphon. I then flipped the image and aligned it below the actors. For the final performance, I blended a water surface and added a distortion effect to the live image to sell the effect.

    Video clip of one of my tests:

    Thanks. I'm looking forward to using it again in a future performance with MadMapper 4's masking features to make the surface look more like a pond.
