Augmented reality mockup conundrum
I wasnt really sure where to put this but two of the options might involve compositing so i figure here and if not I'd be pointed to the right forum. Sorry this is kind of long.
I am working on a mock up to show how augmented reality and 3d printing could be used in museums to display artifacts that aren't normally displayed. But I am running into a bit of a mental block in the how best to display the mock up.
The original plan was I took the laser scanned 3d model of an artifact, changed it's texture to looks like it was printed in a 3d plastic printer then made a model hand holding a model phone and had them move over the model to "scan" it, playing a movie of the camera lining up and starting the AR sequence as a texture on the face of the phone. It's....okay, though I haven't gotten to the interaction portion of this yet and having the 3d laser scanned model being "manipulated" on the screen I have hit a mental block as to if this is the best way, my 3d modeled hands are mediocre(not bad but not great) and I am not sure if i can do lifelike enough animations yet(I was trained more in making logos sadly, self taught all else).
So I am trying to come up with other ideas as to how and was wondering if anyone had any ideas
basically I am trying to show something similar to aurasma scan with a smartphone the plastic model it brings up a fairly photorealisitc 3d scanned model that you can rotate zoom etc and on top of that using after effects I added three buttons one to bring in a lightsource(an omni light) that you can move around the model to show more detail, a map button showing where it was found, and an information button bringing up information about the artifact.
So I am looking for advice should i stick with this current plan of doing all of this inside 3dsmax and after effects. or should I try and bring a live action element into this and try and use composting or some other trick to show an actual phone displaying this? I honestly haven't done composting before but I would be more then capable of learning. The two tricks I thought of are either A) maybe taking some blue tape putting it over my cellphone screen and finding a way to sort of over lay the video on it. Or B) just running it as a video on my phone, the downside with this one is that if i am to show the interaction of the model how can i touch the cellphone without pausing the video hah
Sorry that I don't have any pics, the digital artifact is protected information, I might try and make a mock up of the mock up though since the artifact is basically a cylinder.
Hopefully you can give me some experienced advice on what the best way of demonstrating an augmented reality mock up(yknow without actually programming one) would be. Thank you.
