Dome design

OK, this should be fun. We are going to investigate and figure out how to apply design and  motion to a dome. In particular, planetarium domes. Funny, we just happen to have a big planetarium dome on campus just waiting for your creative/design efforts.

How do we go about this? What do you need to know? What do you already know and is it transferable into this venue? We will find out.

Some initial info about dome design.

  • Photography and video: is better if shot using a fish-eye lens. Photoshop/AfterEffects conversions can work but composition in a flat photo and video is different than when shot for domes.
  • You will work in a square/round space.
  • Add more items as we discover stuff…
