In this chapter, we will prepare the Modulo Kinetic Designer for the calibration.

Create your Project Folder and copy the media

  • If it is not already done, download the media kit.
  • Copy the entire Project Folder TUTO-AUTOCALIBRATION-DOME
  • Go to the D:\drive, create a folder, then paste the Pattern media you downloaded

Then, start the Modulo Kinetic Designer application

Configure the V-Node Outputs

  • Go into V-Nodes > Remote settings
  • Then, force the EDID and create the EYEFINITY of your V-Node server

Create a new Show

  • Save your show file to the folder 01_SHOW
  • In the Media window, add a folder named 00_PATTERN. Then add the media Dome_pattern_polar_4096×4096.jpg

Add the V-Node, create the Render Surface, add Outputs

  • Add a V-Node, give its IP address
  • On the Editor Tab, define the OUT information to 5*1920 = 9600×1080
  • Create a Render Surface with the same size of our media, which is 4096×4096

  • Select the V-Node and assign the Render Surface just created to it

  • Add 1 output to the V-Node and change its MAP dimensions from its default value 1920×1080 to 4096×4096

Indeed, each video projector needs to MAP all the Render Surface content to perform the calibration.
To save time, you can copy/paste this output and just rename it and change the OUT x/y values for each projector.

  • Add the pattern media to the timeline:

  • Perform an ONLINE action by pressing Control+O. This will get the V-Node ready, and display the pattern on each projector:

We are now ready to start the autocalibration.
