I’m a newbie on this forum as well in the whole Blender scene. I’m am a graduate student from The Netherlands who is working on an exciting graduation project. The project will be an interactive urban projection.
The idea we want to realize is some sort of an 3d interactive experience projected on the wall of a big building. The building consists of several blocks which we want to like they come out of the building.
Something like the movie you see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h3D6dCLAeo
Now, We know how to achieve this with 3dsmax or Maya and Pre-render the whole movie. But we want to make this idea interactive. So we have to work with real time 3d rendering. As we found out that Blender has a strong game engine that can render real time, we are wondering if it’s possible to produce our idea with Blender.
Here is a visual of our idea.
So when the user clicks on a certain block on the touchscreen, the projector will project an realtime 3d rendered cube on to the building and it should look like that the specified block is coming out of the building.
We allready tried to project a pre-rendered 3dsmax cube and it looked great! But as 3dsmax can’t render real time, this isn’t going to work out for us.
So our question is: Is it possible to create 3d animated blocks in Blender that are rendered real time? And will it look realistic enough, like the shading, lightning etc.?
Lots of thanks!
