I have a question. I’m planning to do an interactive installation which will start on afternoon. So since I will use a projector I worry about the brightness. The guy offers me 4.000 lumens, 6.000 and 10.000
should I use 10.000 or I can do it with 6.000 or 4.000?
Plus at some point it will get dark and I will use a Kinect in the installation, is it going to affect the tracking?
The projection wont be big…just a wall probably 3 meters by 3 meters…6 o clock on afternoon in Cyprus…here it gets dark at 8…so I have two hours of daylight…If I can start at 8 I will…but if I have to start at 6 that means I need to figure out how to project in daylight…
well in short, you can’t project in daylight, at least not with anything approaching reasonably priced projectors.and 3 by 3 meters is, if using a 4by3 projector illuminating 12sqm which is relatively big in daylight… depending on if it is in the shade or the sun.
Yes at night it would be very fune, depending on what other light is there.
What I did was to simply test when the light was good for the projection to start, which in my case was when the sun was 4 degrees below the horizon, and then use Sun (Astronomy) to know when to turn on the projector.
