Ways of Seeing with Computers workshop (Rulr workshop), NODE 15

Credits: elliotwoods, sebl


All the goods for:

  • Calibrating cameras
  • Calibrating kinect<>projector
  • Calibrating camera<>projector
  • Taking graycode scans in 2D and 3D (triangulated graycode scan)
  • Loading kinect<>projector calibrations into VVVV for live 3D projection mapping
  • Loading triangulated point clouds into VVVV for pixel-for-pixel 3D projection mapping onto scanned surfaces

Thanks to Simon Hänggi for getting all the files together at the end of the workshop and making this ZIP.


  • Visual C++ 2013 x64 Runtime
  • Kinect Runtime v2.0 v1409 (aka Kinect SDK)
  • BlackMagic drivers (either Camera drivers or DeckLink drivers)

All prerequisites can be downloaded from:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_S1z3_AWMRSfmhrRDd1ZVYtY3lPUW5TR29XbDZ2Q1pVYWFrSXZMTVRkZmxsSF82ajlBTDg&authuser=0.

Future versions shouldn't need Kinect or BlackMagic drivers, but the one packaged here does.

you may need to install Blackmagic Camera utilities to make Rulr work.
at workshop there was v.2.0.1; one may get any of more recent instead :: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/family/professional-cameras

// just checked that without these Rulr throws exactly same error

guest 10/05/2015 - 11:31

Yeah that's done it, thanks Eps... ditto Princemio!
