“disguise gave us the freedom to perfectly map and interact with the buildings’ structure,” Giegerich adds.
He notes that disguise also played an important role in previs sessions with the ECB “to explain how the created artwork would interact with the building and what the overall look would be when it came to the speed of the graphical installation. Since the building is very big that was an issue we had to watch carefully.”
Lambrecht found the disguise QuickCal feature for speedy projector alignment especially helpful. “The process didn’t require more than 90 minutes for a projection surface greater than 25m x 120m,” he says. “We sent UDP/Telnet from the timeline into the grandMA2 to trigger different sequences. And network set up for the multiple disguise servers and additional outputs were easy to handle.”
The disguise systems performed “perfectly, with no problems,” Lambrecht reports. “Despite the high resolution of the content and surfaces and a computationally intensive output distortion the disguise systems were not at all limited.”
