Here we combined two of our favorite things, shaders and the superformular.
Originally discovered by Johan Gielis as a generalization of a superellipse, the superforumlar allows you to create interesting regular or irregular organic looking shapes.
You will be teleported right into the center of Gängeviertel. A district of the city of Hamburg, Germany occupied by artists. With the help of photogrammetry, we scanned parts of this inspiring graffiti covered environment. Explore the magic of this place by reapplying color with your spray can and discovering hidden symbols with your flashlight. Each symbol brings you to a new part of the district, when you activate it.
You can play it for free on the oculus store.
In the first step, we created an animation via Processing, using flowfield simulation, on the basis of a source picture.
The animation was then exported as video and used to animate texture in Unreal Engine. These textures were then combinded with skeletal mesh animations, particle effects and post processing shaders, to create the final animation clip.
