View Full Version : Lightplot - A 3D Light painting robot

05-09-2012, 05:58 PM
A slightly unconventional post .. this is a robot I've been working on to paint 3D meshes and animations in the air. The robot also controls a DSLR camera which captures the images. The meshes are exported from 3DS Max using a custom exporter, and then I've written some control software to drive the robot.

The test you see below is shot entirely in camera.


The dancer animation is by Sergei Shabarov (http://www.shabarov.com/)

If you want to read more about how it works, read my making of page (http://www.rethinkfx.com/projects/making-of-lightplot).
