Holopainting is a combination of the Light Painting, Stop Motion and Hyperlapse technique to create three dimensional light paintings.
We didn't want to use computer generated images, so we built a giant 3D scanner out of 24 Raspberry Pis with their webcams. These cameras took photos from 24 different perspectives of the person in the middle with a delay of 83 milliseconds, so the movement of the person also was recorded.
After that we spent endless hours cutting out each photo, so we would have the person on a black solid as background. We then made a hyperlapse around a light painting artist who painted each of the photos we took before according to the current position of the camera. As a result the hyperlapse circulates around a three dimensional light painting. We felt like painting a hologram, so we called it a holopainting.
This is our graduation project for our university.
Thanks to the University of Applied Science St. Pölten (fhstp.ac.at) for supporting this project.
Thanks to our client HOERBIGER (hoerbiger.com) for letting us use one of their old facilities to do the holopainting.
Thanks to the FFG which sponsored the Raspberry Pis, Webcams and wires to build the 3D-Scanner.
