Lightform makes it easy for anyone to create epic visuals for projected AR

Lightform Workflow Overview (44 sec)

1. Structured Light Scanning

To scan a scene, the LF1 sends patterns to the projector over HDMI that the 4K camera simultaneously captures. These patterns display for ~30 seconds and generate the Depth Estimate Map.

Lightform Depth Estimate Map

2. Depth Estimate Map

Lightform automatically calibrates for the lens of the projector, generates a projector resolution depth estimate map, fills in holes, and wirelessly transfers the data back to your laptop in ~1 minute.

3. Instant AR Effects

Lightform Creator, the LF1 companion software, generates instant interactive effects that use the scan data and can be applied instantly with a single click of a button for stunning results.
