How to make 3D projection mapping using Adobe After Effects

Here is a list required things for projection mapping

  • 1. 3d model, front image of your  building, texture or plan
  • 2. Content which you will project to your architecture, object or interior. You can do it by yourself or download on our VJ Loops Shop
  • 3. VJ Software for live operating
  • 4. VJ Hardware, equipment: Video projectors, etc.

1. Use frontview of architecture facade. Import image to after effect. Choose the digital area of projection. Prepare your architectural texture:  cut with mask, colorize, mix.

2. Animate image texture with simple effects in After Effects if you want. Use in and out video transitions. Use Video Mapping Loops as background for your acrhitecture.  Blend your animation to the image texture with stencil luma effect. You can also use it direct in Special VJ Software without preperation in After Effects
