Now available refleXion virtual venues for live online performances!
refleXion for interactive live audio visual experiences
The power of refleXion 360 real time 3D environments was on full display in 2019 at the premiere Toronto art and music experience known as The Funhouse. We are extremely proud to have installed the first of its kind full room RefleXion augmented environment system to the Funhouse Toronto where it powered the interactive projections in the main ballroom concert space.
Spread across 6 HD video projectors and wrapping the room in a beautiful and dynamic interactive underwater scene. You can read a detailed blog post about the design and installation process here at the livevideoart BLOG
Over the year at The Funhouse the automated projection system was running every day entertaining guests by making a immersive world come alive and react to them as they explore the space. We made changed to the scene over the seasons adding haunting under sea elements for Halloween and completely changing to a Winter wonderland carnival scene in the Winter months. This complete visual environment change over had a very short timeline but the capabilities of our real time 3D graphics engine allowed for rapid production of a new scenery using our refleXion tool suite in Unity 3D and without the need to render any frames of animation like in traditional digital animation productions.
For the up coming musical POP by Huge Picture Productions we used a prototype Reflexion build to create some of the projected backgrounds during filming. This is just one of many creative uses possible with refleXion our new augmented reality projection system. Using the realtime 3d projection mapping we were able to position the background digital set piece with the ideal camera angle to match the real world live shot. This has implications for live effects on stage as well as for effects pre viz and post compositing.
Our first night out with RefleXion in pre Alpha state . Controls were shaky but the reviews were rave. Vj Guy mixed a stylish 3d scene with abstract audio reactive shapes and simple scenery pieces that we flew around and explored while he mixed in video and effects from Resolume.
