Step 38: Projection Mapping Graphics Alignment

After getting everything installed and powered up for the first time (really exciting!). It's time to align the projection graphics.

As I was getting the software working, I had a keyboard and mouse plugged in and haphazardly hanging from a powered USB hub. I use a mouse to tweak the vertices as I haven't yet figured out an good way to precisely drag vertices around with a touch screen interface. Fortunately this is a one-time step because the projector and the object are locked down.

Manual Vertex-Mapping Time Lapse

I had to do a few changes to the code as I was getting it set up. It was so cool to see the linux terminal cascading the compiler output over the mountains surface, followed by crisp, high-framerate OpenGL graphics.

Having an LCD projector really makes for a huge quality difference when filming, even when shooting with my iPod camera. No banding.

<p>amazing, me and my friend are going to make it at our school</p>
<p>Amaizing project. </p>
