simulating a projection on a wall
on Jun 29, 2013 at 2:32:33 pm

hello all ... i'm trying to find a tutorial that will teach me to simulate a projection on a wall, preferably with motion tracking. an example of what i want to emulate is in this template:

http://videohive.net/item/abandoned-v2-ghost-adventures/3509365?sso?WT.ac=s...

i've searched high and low, and i guess my problem is: i don't know what the technique is called. i assume it's 'mapping' of some kind, but google keeps pointing me to camera mapping ... when i search for projection, etc ... google points me to actual projects suitable for projecting video.

any ideas ? help would be appreciated. (and i'm assuming this is an after effects task; if it requires any plugins, please advise.. tanks again.

Here's one way to do it:

I'm guessing this is what you're looking for, since the example video loaded so slowly I couldn't watch more than 10 or 15 frames at a time, so I bailed on it.

I sent this info to Stephen back-channel, just in case anyone else needs the information:

It sounds as if you need to use AE’s Advanced Camera Tracker – it’s not very hard to wrap your head around, and this tutorial from Adobe TV will give you a good start:
