While noting that there are numerous tools to choose from to handle certain tasks, combining the pair of Photoshop with Apple’s QuickTime Player would be enough to implement environmental projection on a building, with light on the building’s corner.

In beginning any project, though, Oliszewski emphasized the need to account for the size of the space that one would be creating content, as that is “the size of their literal frames.”

While he discussed the plethora of Adobe products that suit many needs of a designer, beginning with Photoshop, but not limited to that program, including the use of Illustrator or After Effects, he also spoke positively of the use of tools such as Final Cut Pro or Avid, as well as Sony’s Vegas Pro, available for PC.

From there he spelled out the difference between codecs and “wrappers,” in that a “wrapper,” like a .MOV file can consist of more than 200 different codecs, so when noting you have a .MOV file to a designer, for example, it offers little idea of what sort of a file the movie actually is, since the codec could be something like QuickTime H.264 or ProRes.

Upon leaving that session, most of the next six hours were visiting with different representatives at the wide array of booths on the exhibit hall floor. Whether it was seeing the Crimson series projectors up close in the Christie booth or seeing the expansive Elation booth, with an array of moving lights and LED wall technology, there were a number of impressive products for attendees at LDI to get a closer look at, with the benefit of various demos or displays.

Shortly after the exhibit floor closed after its first day of being open on Friday around 6 p.m., excitement moved outside to the LDI: Live Outside Concert, with rapper Mike Xavier being the opening act of the concert which ran for about three hours immediately outside the convention center.
