Project

Define a full project with content, 3D stage and video mapping pipeline

Compared to usual compositing, Smode projects introduce on the two following new concepts:
  1. Show Contains all the video content of the project Read More : This is where all the video content is stored and corresponds to a composition with multiple outputs (think for example at multi-channel audio)
  2. Pipeline Define how video content is processed in a project Read More : How the video content flows and gets processed through the project till the final outputs
Those two concepts correspond to the content creation side and the technical side of the project.
But, first of all, let's see how to create a new project.

Project creation wizard

To create a new project, click on FILEMenu for Opening, Saving and Closing operations > "New project"
This gives the choice between three creation wizards: Minimal , 2D pipeline and 3D pipeline .
The Minimal wizard creates the simplest possible Pipeline Define how video content is processed in a project Read More , which consists of a single Content Map This section describes how to set up your content maps and use Content Area Read More , directly linked to the video output.

The other two wizards help creating more complex projects faster, but note that they are not mandatory: it's possible to construct whole projects from scratch using the Minimal wizard.
The 2D pipeline wizard will help you create a large screen composed of multiple video outputs. This wizard is convenient for simple mapping in which 3D video mapping is not necessary.

The 3D pipeline wizard is useful to create a video projection 3D mapping setup. It gives options to directly create Video Projector Virtual video projectors of Smode stage, used for real life mapping, usually directly connected to the Outputs Read More inside the Stage 3D modeling of the real-world video setup Read More of the project.
To learn more about Smode projects, either go to Show Contains all the video content of the project Read More , or Pipeline Define how video content is processed in a project Read More .
Specific project construction scenarios are detailed in Smode How To guide for Project creation!.
