gl tools tools grid renderer used for mapping (plus wishes)

fsk's picture

short video of the last VJ ing i did in k4. the styrofoam installation was was done by my friend Nina from multipraktik (our group).

the thing was mapped using the grid renderer from kinemes gl tools. i have used it for just about every mapping i did since it was released :). there are two things i wish it had though. a color input and support for z buffer. for the color im using glsl now but that makes those crappy lines at the seams that you can spot most easily on the circle in the video (any idea how to avoid those). the z buffer thing would come in handy when two planes partially cross each other. right now, if that happens you have to split one of them and then mess with the uvs.

Oh yes, this is great, I used the gl grid as well for a project i talked about on some other thread. For me the most difficult thing about the gl grid is how to control it, i guess there is a way to do it with javascript. I did a very ugly composition where i could control 22 points using some structure replace set up, but as I said it was ugly and not very flexible... could someone please get me on the right direction in order to control this thing? Thanks. Oh nice work fsk!

There's kinda a template editor thing somewhere - I'll try to include that somewhere to get people up to speed (it's an unsupported patch, so we generally don't want to encourage dependence on it ;)
