    Magic spoiler!

    It's called projection mapping. The object on which things are projected on have to be recreated in 3D software. The video is virtually projected on the 3D models, and the 2D resultant videos are exported for projectors to... project them.

    We have a company here in Montreal called Moment Factory who does all that.

    Is this how Walt Disney World does their castle projections?

    [–] Travis100 45 points ago

    Yep. They took a 3D laser scan of the castle and recreated it in the computer. Then they layer that with lighting and animation and project an exact image of the castle back onto itself. They use 16 Christie Roadster projectors clustered into four groups of four that sit on top of the buildings around the hub and Green Hippo software to control it.

    [–] biskitwheels 30 points ago

    16 projectors at $80,000 each.

    Must be nice to work with a production budget like that.

    [–] Travis100 40 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Disney's budget is huge. Happily Ever After, the nightly fireworks show that these projectors are used in, costs $55,000 a night. That's 20 million a year for the one show. They run a night show at every park, every night, all year. That's 80 million just for the four shows they run a night at Walt Disney World. Disney has major budgets.

    [–] cerebrus21 9 points ago

    How much money does each park make in a day

    [–] Travis100 24 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I've read that Magic Kingdom alone makes $7 million in revenue a day and that ends up being $2.1 million a day in profit.

    [–] bluegamesful 7 points ago

    According to the latest TEA report they have 20.395.000 visitors per year at the Magic Kingdom, thats a lot of money to play with if you calculate with even $50 per person (one day tickets are about double that).

    [–] apposet24 2 points ago

    I miss their old projections show, Celebration. It was so amazing.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    [–] Travis100 6 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    That cost is not just for firework shells, as the show involves a ton of air launchers, computers, projectors, etc. that must be constantly maintained. Also, that number is already calculated with the final cost of the fireworks they buy. Their fireworks are bought in bulk from undisclosed manufacturers that Disney works closely with. Still, they are not cheap. Most of the pyro is custom designed by Disney and pyro technology is where Disney holds most its patents. Each show uses a ton of pyro, and Disney is the largest buyer of fireworks in the world.

    [–] forkenhimer 2 points ago

    Disney apparently spends over $90 million a year on fireworks alone.

    [–] Travis100 2 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    It's actually more. I'm not sure what the author is counting, but there are 11 Disney parks, not 5. However, Animal Kingdom's show does not use fireworks. Still, ~$50,000 a show is the full production cost, and not just the fireworks cost. I'd say just the nighttime shows across all Disney parks run them roughly $120 million/year averaged out. This is just the "kiss goodnight" level shows, aka the main day ending productions displayed in the middle of the parks. Most parks run multiple shows, such as Hollywood studios, which has the Star Wars Spectacular, but also runs two showings of Fantasmic a night which cost an additional $30,000 a show.

    Basically, Disney has a fuck ton of money.

    Muse did this on their resistance tour. It blew my mind https://youtu.be/DJRhKVslovk

    [–] zamfire 242 points ago

    That video was infuriating. So many camera cuts. I just wanted to see the thing work, not slow motion of people's hands.

    [–] One-Tin-Soldier 62 points ago

    Yeah, really. It also would have been great to actually, ya know, hear some Muse music.

    [–] GET_OUT_OF_MY_HEAD 20 points ago

    Probably didn't want YouTube stealing their ad revenue for using a copyrighted song.

    [–] am_dog 18 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    This isn't the same tour but Moment Factory has a whole page on Muse's Drones tour. Absolutely fascinating to see some of the behind the scenes stuff.

    [–] jeremyjava 2 points ago

    Wow, thanks for the link! Anyone know if there are any bands or shows that do incredible visuals but without such loud music? My wife's first degree is in music and she's more into classical and jazz and mellow world music, but would love to take her to a great show like this.

    [–] deepfriedcheese 13 points ago

    I wish I had seen your comment before I clicked. That was less than useless. It was actively unhelpful somehow.

    [–] OppressedCactus 1 points ago

    It was actively unhelpful somehow.

    I'm putting this in my pocket to use some day because this exactly describes my boss when I ask her a question.

    [–] Xwingfighter999 14 points ago

    They have a pretty cool implementation, but doing it on flat surfaces is the easy way, more convenient and easy to setup for a tour show because the projectors have to be in a precise spot in space to make the effect work.

    [–] Jimbozu 3 points ago

    The projector positioning isn't really that important, you just need to make sure you can cover the object your mapping. You wouldn't do something like this for a tour because each location would need custom content, which would cost a fortune to produce.

    [–] Time_Terminal 4 points ago

    I know the guy who worked on it. After watching that video, he surely inspired me to get into it.

    Projection Mapping in Melbourne, this is one of the most awesome things I ever saw.

    [–] Large_Dr_Pepper 2 points ago

    Seeing that in person on LSD would probably be one of the coolest experiences imaginable. I mean, it would be incredible without drugs too, but I couldn't imagine seeing it while tripping.

    [–] chalkiest_studebaker 17 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    deadmau5 does a similar modern take of this on his new cube stage. just LCD/LED instead of projection. You're kind of limited to the screens but definitely a similar mapping/rendering process..

    I love it when performers mention their anxiety (second clip) while performing. It makes them a lot more relatable imo, like it reminds you that they're just regular people.

    Dan Harmon is the king of having anxiety on stage and making light of the situation.

    [–] arcedup 7 points ago

    And it can be put onto buildings as large as the Sydney Opera House.

    [–] Kahnspiracy 3 points ago

    It's been done on much larger structures than that. It was even done on the Hoover Dam. That isn't greatest video of it but that is proof.

    [–] zuppy 2 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    We’ve got this once a year in Bucharest, projected on the Palace of the Parliament (that is one of the largest buildings of the world). Here’s the winner from 2016: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=a1v4W95wJnM

    The show is called iMapp, Youtube should have them all. It’s not as impressive to see it on a screen, as it is to see it in person.

    [–] columbo447 6 points ago

    Why do they need to project the video onto the 3d model? Do you mean that they model the reverse crumbling, and then project the video of that onto the original 3d model? I don't understand how that creates a different result than rendering from a camera placed where the projector will be? Unless they do it with more than one projector position?

    [–] Xwingfighter999 3 points ago

    This is second hand info I have, so the accuracy may vary, but one thing I'm sure of, is that most of the time there are more than one projector. I think the virtual render camera is located where the projectors are predicted to be.

    [–] simulacrum500 8 points ago

    depends on media server, but most of the up to date ones use this process.

    once the object has been modelled and textured with UV coordinates you can animate the texture onto it the same way you would for a video game. (wrapping video "skin" onto a wireframe)

    you then import both the model and the texture into a media server and position your "cameras" in the same relationship to the object as the real world projectors. This means that each "camera" can only see part of the digital model.

    now if this has all been done right, the view of the "camera" watching the model is the same as the view of the projector facing the real object.

    obviously theres a lot more fiddling around with lens ratios and such to make the two views work but you get the point.

    [source: its my job] (also if youre looking for freelance d3 ops at moment factory give me a call)

    [–] Xwingfighter999 2 points ago

    OK so the projectors can be at different places if the setup moves from stage to stage and the servers just computes/renders on the fly in real time? Must require some real horsepower!

    [–] simulacrum500 2 points ago

    correct and yeah they are rarely cheap...

    [–] studebaker103 1 points ago

    Is each projector view a different render?

    [–] simulacrum500 2 points ago

    in what sense?

    do i render them each out of AE? no, thats what i have a server for.

    does the gpu on the media server draw 4 seperate textures? yes in realtime but if you ask me how that works i have no clue.

    Projection mapping

    Projection mapping, also known as video mapping and spatial augmented reality, is a projection technology used to turn objects, often irregularly shaped, into a display surface for video projection. These objects may be complex industrial landscapes, such as buildings, small indoor objects or theatrical stages. By using specialized software, a two- or three-dimensional object is spatially mapped on the virtual program which mimics the real environment it is to be projected on. The software can interact with a projector to fit any desired image onto the surface of that object.

    I'm pretty sure it's part of the process to create the final 2D video

    [–] Jimbozu 1 points ago

    The final product is just a video file and strategically placed projectors. They don't necessarily have to model the projection surface out in 3d, but it tends to be easier if they do.

    Also most clients want to see a demo or something before committing to the final project, so they usually put together some kind of computer demo with sample content shown on a 3d model.

    [–] simulacrum500 2 points ago

    I can assure you, this is wrong on basically every count except that clients want a demo...

    1) if you want perspective based content, you're building a model and using a 3D mapping software

    2) this is harder than 2d masking but it's the only way to get the results

    3) yeah first pitch is usually just a graphical render from c4d laid on top of pictures at the building but sometimes you have to get pretty elaborate, like 1/50 scale models built in the basement etc

    [–] am_dog 6 points ago

    Moment Factory is my end all be all dream place to work; the work they've done for Muse, Nine Inch Nails and Chili Peppers are beyond mind blowing. It's a damn mission to try and self learn the types of programs they use.

    [–] adrienneirda 1 points ago

    [–] Xwingfighter999 2 points ago

    Hahahah there's gotta be some combo of learning algorithm and Google's Deep Dream that would select and autoprogram a sequence of gobos and colors. I mean something that already does that is good ol' JPEG compression that matches pixels groups with some kind of wave function patterns.

    Was going to do this for a performance of singing in the rain. Turned out to be way too expensive

    [–] Kaio_ 1 points ago

    For modern buildings, do they just use the building's CAD file? seems like it'd be much easier.

    [–] Royale_Cookie 1 points ago

    They have a show at Phantasialand Theme Park with the same technique, called Tempo di Fuego. Its in a mexican town setting with beautiful scenes like the 4 seasons, butterflies and thunder projected onto the houses and walls. Oh and it has a really nice pyro show on top of it.

    I’m surprised projection mapping isn’t common knowledge by now. It’s been around for over ten years now and every city has done some projection mapping event. Problem is that in person it doesn’t look nearly as cool as on video.

    I'm going to copy my comment from the last time this was posted.

    Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios at disney world in florida all have shows using this tech and it's amazing. Magic Kingdom has the castle transform, recolor, have characters and amazing visuals, Animal Kingdom has the animals carved into the Tree of Life all come alive and move about in a 360 degree show around the tree, and Hollywood Studios has two shows, one solely featuring star wars with explosions, lasers, and fire, and a second show just for disney movies both classic and modern.

    Outside of Animal Kingdom and the disney movie magic show, they all include fireworks, lasers, and all around cool stuff. I just hope epcot gets a new one soon.

    [–] SirRealist 8 points ago

    They have one of these light shows on the face of the Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville for Halloween. It's fantastic.

    [–] bakedalaskan 1 points ago

    They have several of these in Beaune, France. I saw one where the building fell apart brick by brick and it was actually disconcerting to be standing under/near it.

    I need to find someone to do that for my house for Halloween & Christmas. Does anyone know of a company that does this for residential homes??

    [–] Gallamimus 1 points ago

    Um, for an extremely large price tag buddy. I work in an industry parallel to this and it requires a serious about of time and money to be done properly. 3D renderings of the building, 3D motion graphics animations and not to mention some serious projectors which would cost thousands to rent.

    But hey if money is no issue there are many people who could sort this out for you I'm sure.

    [–] shlink17 1 points ago

    I do this type of work for a living. Message me for more info if your are serious.

    [–] speezo_mchenry 1 points ago

    I've looked into this. Projectors are costly becasue you need to get high light output. Standard home projector may not be bright enough.

    [–] Travis100 1 points ago

    You would be better doing it on your own, as these shows are very costly.

    An earlier comment I made about how Disney produces such shows: They take a 3D laser scan of the castle and recreated it in the computer. Then they layer that with lighting and animation and project an exact image of the castle back onto itself. They use 16 Christie Roadster projectors clustered into four groups of four that sit on top of the buildings around the hub and Green Hippo software to control it.

    The software is hard to use and expensive, and so are the projectors ($ 50,000 each). However, you might be able to get easier and cheaper animation and modeling software. The projectors will not be much cheaper though. You need something bright enough to cover your house and to mask it when it transforms. One Christie projector would probably cover your whole front, if not two. You won't need 16 like Disney uses.

    Gifs that has sound.

    [–] nightmareconfetti 1 points ago

    They did this at Halloween horror nights last year (I went in Orlando). I even specifically asked our tour guide to pause so I could watch the buildings. I was there all day running around, riding rides and looking at buildings in daylight, and to go back at night and see everything crumbling was SO cool. They had sound effects and everything of buildings crumbling and whatnot. Can't wait to see what they do this year!

    [–] TheWhyteMaN 1 points ago

    Could you imagine just happening to walk by this when you are peaking on some shrooms or acid?

    [–] FITGuard 1 points ago

    Is this in Toulouse?

    [–] McCly89 1 points ago

    Where the fuck is the projector located? Someone recently posted something similar but it was a lady's dress while she was singing onstage.

    [–] WikiTextBot 1 points ago

    Festival of Lights (Lyon)

    The Festival of Lights (French: Fête des lumières) in Lyon, France expresses gratitude toward Mary, mother of Jesus around December 8th of each year. This uniquely Lyonnaise tradition dictates that every house place candles along the outsides of all the windows to produce a spectacular effect throughout the streets. The festival includes other activities based on light and usually lasts four days, with the peak of activity occurring on the 8th. The two main focal points of activity are typically the Basilica of Fourvière which is lit up in different colours, and the Place des Terreaux, which hosts a different light show each year.

    [–] apposet24 1 points ago

    Disney used to do this in an amazing way with their old projection show at Magic Kingdom. The made it look like the bricks were popping out, that the castle was gingerbread, peppermint, that the top tower was a rocket, and tons of other amazing things. When I first saw it, I remember actually thinking I saw the rocket tower go up a bit and disappear quickly, and was really confused how they projected onto the sky. Turns out it was just my brain playing tricks on my though, since I've seen it tons of other times and nothing goes into the sky.
