Fulldome – Gates Planetarium

Fulldome Video Projection

I have worked on a few interesting projects with Gates Planetarium at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science involving the fulldome format.

Here is a Cinema 4D File I created which allows for rendering out the hemispherical images required for use on the dome projection. It essentially uses a mirrored reflection system and camera rig to output square images which are distorted spherically.

This video was created using the DomeCam file:


A short one man play directed by Laura Cuetara at the University of Colorado Denver, Department of Theater Film and Video Production. The piece above was created for the play which took place in the Gates Planetarium. Students from Bryan Leister‘s 3D Motion Design Class as well as my 3D Motion Design Class also created 3D pieces which were projected during the play.

Here are is a short introduction piece I created for the play (sound is roughed in for timing only).
