The API for the table:
- Next week we will have an API.
- It will have a corrected camera view, with a callback that is called every frame.We will first try it in Java, and we shall see if it's fast enough. If not, we'll go over to C++.
- We will set up a way to do the warping for calibration.But we will also provide a way for you to do your own matrix correction.
- One task for an interested student:Get the JoGL version of my renderer writing to a P-buffer (so that we can post-distort it).
Denis Zorin has also graciously permitted us to play with his Responsive Workbench.
Second hour of class:
