|Date:||27 Dec, 2014|
The mapping toolkit is a series of tools for creatives, to create visual content for projection mapping. It’s comes as a pack of patches / modules developed with vvvv.
MAPPING TOOLKIT – 2D A tool to animate vector files (svg format), and simply produce visual content in realtime. Points, lines and polygon animations are available.
- install vvvv and its addon pack (vvvv 45beta33.3 32bits recommended)
- download MAPPING TOOLKIT 2D, unzip in the vvvv folder.
- run the app.
- Select your svg file in the drop down list. Files are located in the content/ folder
- play with the sliders and buttons in the GUI window
- use the output for live projections, or use FRAPS to record the output.

Please let me know if you're able to install and run the program (gui and render on different threads). Any feedback will be greatly appreciated :)
Yep it works on different threads (open it with batch file) No performance issues (58-59 fps) Delaunay it doesn't works on my side...it might be miss a bang on 'update' pin
Tnx for sharing
Made an account to say thanks. You mentioned this in a thread on facebook. I was the noob that Steve was asking for help for. Works for me perfectly.
Cool, beautiful work.
Yeah the delaunay doesn't work on my side either.
and I can't seem to get the batch file to work, so I Open the master + simple gui to make it work. but once it is running it looks so cool.
Love your Projection mapping work and thanks for this toolkit.
Thanks guys, working on a fix for the triangulation now !
Hey tsiwt did you unzip the folder in the vvvv root ? I'm curious to understand why the batch doesn't work (you won't get good performances if gui and app are started manually..)
The patch works perfectly. Thanks! I try to create my own .svg files(with Inkskape or the svg editor from google) but I can't see them in the patch. Do they have to be special .svg files or have some kind of setup?
Thanks Joanie, It works real well. @Patxi7, The SVG and jpg files has to be the same size.
works fine! 2 years since pre-alpha. thx joanie!
hi i think inkscape svg file have no line object. only path object. i have done one draw with every tool and look on xml editor from inkscape and always are path except on rectangules that apear rect could be this posible or i am in a mistake?? thanks
well i think inkscape work anly with path and rect object in xml.no lines no poligon no circles :D.
now i will try with another open software like freecad...if some one knows another for generate svg files that works properly with this tool,just suggest me, please.
thanks!!!!i like this toolkit so much:D
Woooww coolll, thanks @Joanie_AntiVJ
it works for me, thanks a lot :D
I have been playing with this and noticed that in order to get both the polygons and the lines to be drawn you have to manually create the polygon and then draw each individual line on top of the polygon again.
Since doing this for a mid/large amount of polygons is a bit of a pain, I went ahead and created an application that will, based on an SVG file containing polygon elements, will automatically create all of the perimeter line elements for each polygon. (Real time saver)
The app was created using .Net 4.0 and can be downloaded from a zip file here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tk6olwigx0wf0yy/The%20Simon.zip?dl=0
If anyone wants the source I can upload it to github.
Just select the input SVG file, type in an output file name, and hit the "Create Lines" button.
Note: If you are creating your SVG files in Illustrator, make sure to uncheck the "Responsive" option in the "Save As SVG" dialog so that width and height attributes are properly added to the header element, otherwise the toolkit will not load the file.
