Content Creation Powered by Computer Vision
2021 added features and improvements:
- A new user interface streamlined the projection mapping workflow & pairing process.
- Sound reactivity for visual effects added new creative dimension to projects.
- Scan algorithms were improved to provide more accurate results, faster scanning, greater post-processing control, and better response in darker lighting conditions.
- Pixel-based masking tools (Magic Wand, Magic Brush & Brush) were enhanced to more optimally apply a mask.
Lightform Creator software made it easy for anyone to design immersive experiences by leveraging the Lightform device’s Smart Scan, Depth Estimate technology, and Audio-Reactive Effects. Lightform Creator enables faster and more powerful content creation for projected AR.
Scan Based Smart Selection
Lightform’s structured light technology creates a “smart scan,” creating an image of a scene as if taken from the projector’s point-of-view. Creator’s raster selection tools (Magic Wand and Magic Brush) enable selections to be made intuitively within the smart scan.
Your Lightform LFC or LF2+ device can capture sound from its surroundings and utilize it to create synchronized audiovisual projections.
Lightform Creator provides a library of built-in custom effects, generators, images, and videos that instantly apply animations and motion content to your scene. Many of Creator’s built-in-effects utilize the scan data (colors, disparity, normals, edges, and distance to edges in your scene) to create context-aware graphics.
Conventional Mapping Tools
Lightform Creator allows you to create surfaces and easily apply dynamic effects. Surfaces are essentially masking out a part of the real world that you’d like to augment using any of the included Surface Tools, the perspective warp feature, blend modes, and the ability to edit masks with real-time feedback as well as regular tools you’d expect from a projection mapping software.
