unfortunately I could to test David with the projector only one time. Now my Camera seems... in holiday
I don't know why, but it don't work any more
I hope to find quickly the problem and a solution.
In the meantime, I've done these 10 .gif animations: 5 with a loop animation and 5 with no loop (animation played only one time). The .gif animated images have inside the 12 patterns created by Simon, in the right sequence.
The animation were done at differents fps speeds (1, 2, 4, 8 and 12 fps), so, you can choose which you prefer and which is better for your purpose.
I hope that these .gif images will be seen by all the users on your pc, under Windows and under Mac o.s. . Please confirm if I'm right.
I've done a test with a projector. At now, I don't have PowerPoint installed or other 2D viewer softwares that allow to show the animation in the second monitor view (the projector).
So, I've used the "desktop background image" as viewer
I've opened the control panel of my Desktop, choose the resolution of the second monitor at 1024 x 768 and choose the "Extend the Desktop on second monitor" option.
After I've only choose the .gif image as background of the desktop... and animation was played at full resolution of 1024x768, without problem (ok, the same animated background appears in the first monitor, and this fact can disturb you during work
, but this is a temporary solution, waiting for a better solution to project the patterns sequence only on the second monitor/projector).
To capture the images projected on the object/panels is an other chapter
Now, without my camera, I can't test the best solution the catch the images, but probably the best thing is:
- For fast animation of the sequence: to record a video and after grab the images sliding the timeline frame after frame;
- For slow animation of the sequence: take a camera shoot for every projected image.
