3D projection mapping

Whatever you call it – video mapping, projection mapping, 3D mapping – this technology always catches the eye! Projection mapping transforms any 3D shape or real-world object into a display surface, from furniture and facades, to cars and concert stages. WATCHOUT enables pixel-accurate projection onto complex 3D geometrical shapes, and supports the most commonly used 3D file formats:

  • 3DS (3D Studio Max)
  • OBJ (Wavefront)
  • DAE/Collada
  • LWO, LWS (LightWave)
  • LXO (Modo)
  • BLEND (Blender)
  • FBX (Autodesk Filmbox)

Within WATCHOUT, you have full flexibility to control the projector’s mapping performance: lens shift, width and distance ratios, rotation, panning and orbiting. WATCHOUT also offers previsualization of projection scenarios, making the transition from screen to real-life mapping smoother than ever. 

From version 6.2, WATCHOUT supports camera-based auto-alignment from DomeProjection systems, importing geometry correction mesh, blend mask, 2D display and 3D projector display data.
