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

Important License information

If you would like to add the autocalibration module to an existing setup, please contact our customer service and a specific license dongle can be sent to be added to your system.

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.
