This looks great!

Any chance you could share these 2 nodes as I can only see them on git hub and don't know how to compile them.

Node not installed — Make Mesh with Values (co.parabox.mesh.make) Node not installed — Get Mesh Values (co.parabox.mesh.get)

Thanks a lot!

Still really struggling with this. I just can't get it to work perfectly, I can get all the keyframe data and appear to be reading it in vuo. The ball just keeps bouncing around and I don't know why. Argggghhh

Hey Jaymie,

Thanks for getting back to me. I've literally been trying to get this to work all day, I'm close but somethings not quite right and I'm not sure what it is. I'm thinking it's something to do with the different coordinate systems between After Effects and VUO but I'm guessing.

PICTURE 1+2 I've shot some 30FPS footage on my iPhone 6 (FOV 73degrees) to test with. I've taken it into after effects and 3d tracked the footage. That's given me some keyframes for the cameras positional and orientation data. I've managed to copy these keyframes and have built 2 csv files for the positional and orientational data :) I've also marked a null point (white circle) on the floor in my footage and copied its AE positional data so I can put my vuo object in its place.

In theory I should be able to replicate the same scene and camera motion now.

PICTURE 3 In vuo I've brought my clip in I've added an object (wireframe sphere) into the scene and positioned it in the same place as my null in after effects. I've fetched the tables and and linked them to a vuo perspective cameras position and rotation and made sure the items in my list are running at the 30fps (same as my footage).

For some reason it's just not working quite right, the balls floating and I'm just not sure why? If anyone has any suggestions or can help make this work I'd really love to know. I've uploaded all my files (clip, csv, vuo and AE) if anyone fancies the challenge.

Much appreciated, Mario

@marioepsley posted a new Question, “Bringing tracking data into Vuo

Is it possible to track a shot (footage) in another program and then bring that 3d camera path into Vuo? I'd really like to composite some of my vuo compositions into some footage I shot and was wondering if I could match up the motion. Any workarounds welcome.

The other day I stumbled across these great images (attached). Each image is of a really beautiful intricate object and in the top left corner they seem to have the parametric equation associated to each object.

My question is, Is it possible to recreate these structures using the Make Parametric Grid Mesh node? If so would it then be possible to assign custom inputs to the parameters?

I see a really beautiful audio reactive sculpture set being generated from this if its possible. Any help welcomed. Safeness&Greatness Mario
