Playing with Projectors

For my bare series.

Cajsa Lilliehook recently put one of her light projectors on marketplace for a bargain price of L$50. She had done a tutorial before about creating your own projectors, but I am so bad at that kind of stuff, I can barely even rez a box. So when I saw that she put it up on marketplace, I quickly picked one up.

It’s fun but can be a bit tricky, so here’s a few steps that might help you out before you rez and start playing with it.

  1. Make sure you have your shadows enabled and your local lights on. You’ll find that all in your graphics settings (Me > Preferences > Graphics)
  2. Make sure your background is not full-bright so you can see the shadows once you have the projector rezzed and running.
  3. The projector is transparent so I checked highlight transparencies before I rezzed it so I could see it properly (Advanced > Highlighting and Visibility > Highlight Transparent)
  4. I rezzed and positioned the projector so the light was shining on me, however I felt the light was a bit too strong so I edited the projector, then checked edit linked, and clicked on each piece of the projector separately while playing with some of the settings in the “features” tab. In this tab I reduced the intensity a bit, and played around with Fall-off and FOV. You can play with it till you get it to your desired lighting, it’s so versatile!
  5. This works best in a darker windlight, so make sure to set yours at midnight to see it well. For this picture, I used my Onyx setting that can be downloaded from my windlight settings page, it’s in the 10 pack of settings.
  6. Before you start clicking pictures, remember to go back and uncheck highlight transparencies and then click away! (Advanced > Highlighting and Visibility > Highlight Transparent)

That’s about all you have to do and you can create some very dramatic lighting, plus it’s fun to experiment with! Cajsa has a great little notecard that comes with the purchase that has all of the information on it as well.
