I'm currently working on a project where I will be utilizing projection mapping to design for a stage performance. I'm hoping to create some reference images for my plans in Vectorworks but am having problems projecting an image. I initially tried putting a texture on a thin extruded object and giving the texture some transparency. I then placed another solid non textured object in front of that, to serve as a screen, and then put a light behind the transparent textured object. However contrary to my expectations the light just shines right through the transparent object with no regard for the texture. I have done some research, and though I have not found a solution to my problem I've seen mentioning of RenderWorks and RayMaker. I'm not familiar with either of these terms or programs but I have a feeling that my problem is related to my lack of knowledge in these areas. perhaps I don't have something installed or my software is a bit old. however if someone could give me some advice on how to achieve image projection I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
