Un sistema per facilitare la raccolta di disegni e creazioni da parte del pubblico.
Qtter è un sistema che permette di definire, all’intero di un foglio di carta, delle caselle in cui inserire scritte o disegni.
Il sistema è poi in grado di rilevare il foglio, digitalizzare l’immagine e restituire in forma utilizzabile le singole immagini di ogni rettangolo.
qtterA TouchDesigner patch to detect images from a paper sheet
Qtter beta 0.1 by Simone Murtas
web: www.amartist.it facebook: simone "simplo" murtas amartist multimedia
This patch extracts parts of a paper sheet and converts them in cropped TOPs to be used as you want.
It was inspired by the work from @Owen Lowery. He made an installation of moving puppets for childrens. 2D characters are animated by Kinect and childrens can draw their avatars on a paper sheet, each part on a rectangle (head, body, arms...) The sheet is then inserted in a scanner and the patch cuts the rectangles and biuld the characters.
This project is intended to create the image to be printed and the system to detect and retrieve the rectangles using a simple webcam (or other live image sources) and placing the sheet in front of it.
You can define all rectangles size in a simple TABLE, the system will automatically cut them from the paper sheet. Detection is based on the TOE qrCodeTracker by "pdubost" link: https://forum.derivative.ca/uploads/short-url/oThaZRwiV2VD5YHw3M92JEfltoK.tox Forum reference: https://forum.derivative.ca/t/recognize-moving-qr-code/3291 https://github.com/simplo/qtter
TO BE DONE 1) compensate horizontale deformation (x rotatoin of the sheet on the camera plane) evaluating difference in size between upper and lower QRcode 2) line guides on the screen and positoin detection in real time to be sure the image is captured at maximum size 3) use a better webcam (4k?) or drive a reflex camera 4) integrate kinect camera to cut parts of real body and face

E’ stato pensato per installazioni interattive che permettano al pubblico di interagire fornendo il proprio contributo. Ad esempio, i bambini, possono disegnare i propri personaggi che poi vengono animati durante uno spettacolo.
Ispirato al lavoro di @Owen Lowery.
