Question - Creating Fulldome using Apple Motion
- I am exploring using Apple Motion ver. 3.x to create content for
dome projection. I'm wondering if anybody else is using Motion
and if they would be willing to share any caveats that they've
I have only recently begun using Motion to create effects for in-house
full-dome projects. While it is a very powerful tool, it can take
considerable rendering time for even the smallest scenes.
In particular, I find the particle generators very useful. We recently
created quite a nice batch of asteroids that stretched from horizon to
horizon, in a long band. Using the rules associated with particles, they
react to each other and each has it's own motion. We are using two
dimensional asteroid images, and breaking all kinds of laws of physics in
the process, but the effect is quite nice. Eventually we will replace the
2D images with various 3D models.
