Projection Mapping (Maya)

This Project Mapping consisted of taking our adaptation which we created for the ToonBoom animation and putting it into maya to create a 3D effect. This meant creating planes using the Polygons within maya and projecting these images onto them. Unfortunately maya has a slight bug when trying to project transparency automatically so for every layer you have to add this effect yourself by editing in the hyper shade. This took some going as you had to do this with every layer but I got there. After you had done this you had to add depth my extruding the landscape so it gave that 3D effect. I think I didn't do enough of this as it isn't as clear as it could be that it is 3D but you can get a sense as the angle changes.

Here is a screen shot of it being test rendered within maya.
