Snapshots

Your projector can take a snapshot to show you what it can see. This snapshot is critical because it allows you to align what you create with the real world.

 

Taking a snapshot is very simple. However, make sure you have already calibrated the projector in its current location before you continue. Otherwise the snapshot may not be accurate.

 

How To Take A Snapshot

1. Load the project you will be editing either by creating a new one or loading an existing one.

2. Hover over the projector menu in the top right and select 'Snapshots (Smart Background)'

4. Wait a few moments as the projector takes an image and uses it's calibration to map the image to the projection region.

5. When the snapshot is complete it will automatically be loaded as the background for you current project.

You can now create your project and see where your creations will wind up in the real world.

Saved Snapshots

The last five snapshots taken on a projector are automatically saved and can be accessed in the 'Saved Snapshots' dropdown of the snapshot overlay. To activate an old snapshot, simply click on it. It will be loaded into the project.

You can permanently remember snapshots by hovering over a saved snapshot and clicking the checkmark icon:   mceclip6.png. This will preserve the snapshot no matter how many additional snapshots are taken by this projector. You can also download a snapshot to your desktop by clicking the download icon: mceclip7.png
