Talk:Projection mapping



The opportunity to expand on this new changing format on vjing and vj cultures. --Nonintia (talk) 17:01, 11 December 2011 (UTC)Reply

The vjing page is a good reference to start, although I think Visual Mapping or Mapping is another genre altogether.--Nonintia (talk) 17:01, 11 December 2011 (UTC)Reply
The existing vjing wiki will be too long to be expanded on for Visual Mapping Wiki page.--Nonintia (talk) 17:01, 11 December 2011 (UTC)Reply



Discussion on the topic of mapping must be historically idealised and edited for better content to avoid deletion.--Nonintia (talk) 17:01, 11 December 2011 (UTC)Reply

Article name


If there are no objections, I am going to change the name of this entry to "video mapping." This is much more commonly used both within the mapping world, and online. I almost even created a video mapping page because this was so hard to find. Rathergood15 (talk) 04:31, 30 June 2012 (UTC)Reply

video mapping should point to projection mapping, as it is a more accurate term. video mapping can be done without a projector. as in mapping video within video. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rachelmariewallace (talkcontribs) 17:54, 29 May 2015 (UTC)Reply

Why does this article state video mapping and projection mapping are the same? Video mapping does not need projection and can be used with screens such as LED or OLED, unlike projection mapping which requires projection by definition Levelut (talk) 19:11, 15 April 2018 (UTC)Reply

Video mappingProjection Mapping – The name of this technology has been up in the air for a while, but I feel like projection mapping is the most agreed upon name within the community.[1] The main reason for this rename is that I wrote this page only using knowledge gained by research. I am hoping that this rename will attract potential editors with actual experience with this technology. Relisted.

  • Comment it's not about other types of video mapping (used in post production) this is only about projection. But this isn't about the mathematics/computer graphics concepts of mapping and projection either... -- (talk) 01:31, 17 February 2013 (UTC)Reply
  • Comment - If this is a common noun it should not be capitalized. Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 01:15, 23 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

Relisting. Have we any reliable sources that indicate that this is even an encyclopedic topic, let alone what it is called? The three references currently provided [2] are all to websites. The first is to site promoting a software package, the second is a broken link, and the third is a blog.

I'm guessing from the tone of the article and comments that there's no problem worthy of AfD, but we do need to cite some better sources, both for the move and in the article itself. Andrewa (talk) 13:06, 24 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

  • Support, but capitalize as Projection mapping per WP:NCCAPS. This form is about five times more common in Google Scholar. --BDD (talk) 17:37, 5 March 2013 (UTC)Reply
  • Relisting comment It looks like the attempted relist on 24 February failed. I'll relist this again, but this shouldn't prejudice a close before a week if appropriate. --BDD (talk) 17:58, 6 March 2013 (UTC)Reply
  • Support the uncapitalised version proposed by BDD. Andrewa (talk) 15:19, 15 March 2013 (UTC)Reply

Industries Using 3D Projection Mapping Technology


The Page talks about couple of aspects of 3d Projection Mapping. The Software or basic technique used for 3D Projection Mapping has helped various types of businesses. The technology has made the usage of multiple projectors to display one image at irregular surface. These two elements are very important. You can use as many projectors as required without being worried about the surface being used for display. Industries like, Advertising, Entertainment, Education, Defense, Simulations and few others are using 3D Projection Mapping technology. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 3dprojectionmapping (talkcontribs) 16:38, 27 July 2014 (UTC)Reply

Projection Mapping <> Shader Lamps or Spatial Augmented Reality


I don't have time to suggest a concrete fix at the moment (I'm sorry) but as the person who conceived of the phrases "Shader Lamps" (SL) and "Spatial Augmented Reality" (SAR) when I was co-advising Ramesh Raskar at UNC Chapel Hill, I would contend that those terms indicate something different from "Projection Mapping" (PM)—or at the very least, a specialization of that term. We were certainly aware of (and wrote about) the PM done historically prior to SL and SAR. That, and much of what is now considered PM, is based on 2D images created from a particular perspective. SL (a specific technique) and SAR (a general paradigm) include the notion that there is a full dynamic 3D virtual model of the underlying physical object, and that just as "shaders" in graphics hardware systems are used to affect colors and textures on virtual 3D objects, SL as a technique is to use the projector (the "Lamp") to affect the computer graphics colors and textures on physical 3D objects. I need to think about it more—and I will when I can—but to say or imply that PL, SL, and/or SAR are synonymous is not correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Welchgregusa (talkcontribs) 01:50, 7 February 2016 (UTC)Reply
