Masking Video onto Object


#1

Hello, has anyone figured out how to mask video onto an object and get it to stay placed on the object?

I am trying to put a video on a 3d object in an art gallery; and then have the video stay attached to the object when the user moves around.

Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Hi @mecostanza,

Thanks for your question :slight_smile:

From what I understand, you are trying to track a video experience to an object within an art gallery?

This is definitely possible but the quality of the tracking would really depend on the target image (3D object) the experience is linked to. We do not recommend tracking to 3D objects that are curved or have glossy surfaces as this will have a major effect on the stability of the tracking. We have a great video that explains what makes a good tracking image, so be sure to check that out!

In the case that you have explained, you will have to bare in mind that a zapcode will need to be present for the user to scan to initiate the experience. This will have to be either on the object or within the gallery itself. Then once the zapcode is scanned the experience will then appear and the video will be tracked to the target image (3D object).

Hope this helps, please let us know if you have any further questions on this matter.

Thank you very much! I will experiment with better placement on the art pieces and see what we can achieve.
