To create a realistic sound design, audio panning is a must. This video describes the process of panning an audio cue from the left channel to the right within QLab 3, thereby creating a “doppler effect” of a police siren passing by.
This is one of the instructional videos from the supplemental website included with my textbook “QLab 3 Show Control: Projects for Live Performances & Installations.” To find out more about the book, click here http://www.amazon.com/QLab-Show-Control-Performances-Installations/dp/0415857570.
Projection mapping is the projection of imagery onto 3-dimensional surfaces (often irregularly shaped) and manipulating the image output in such a way to make this surface appear to be a flat one. This process is complex, costly, and time-consuming technology. Of course, this means that everyone wants it for their project and it is now quickly becoming ubiquitous. This video has made its way around a lot of different circles, and for good reason. Not only does it beautifully illustrate projection mapping, but shows a new possibility of incorporating projection mapping with robotics to create moving mapped imagery. The results speak for themselves. Enjoy!
The video link above is one of the instructional videos included with my textbook “QLab Show Control: Projects for Live Performances & Installations.” It walks you through the process of creating a Fade-In for a Video Cue. The book releases on November 11th, 2013. From now until that date, I will be offering up promotional goodies on this blog. Subscribe to keep in the loop!

This is a great video created by the American Theatre Wing featuring some amazing designers in Scenery, Sound, Costumes, and Lighting. I have had the pleasure to work with David Gallo and participate in his Broadway Scenic Design Master Class and can say that he has some great thoughts on approaching a design. A wonderful watch for anyone interested in design and A MUST for theatrical design students.
Design is one of the most powerful of human inclinations as it gracefully combines together two concepts: teamwork, and serving others. No designer ever truly works alone, and the purpose of design is to serve a function for the end-user. Whether designing a product, an image, or an idea, the designer’s role is problem solving through creativity. By its very nature, design transforms creativity into a tangible outcome – linking thought with action. This video covers a wide array of British designers who shaped the world through their designs and received the Prince Philip Designer’s Prize for their work. Enjoy!
