Ghost Steps – Ghost footprint projection

Posted by Chris

Ghost Steps

Today we have released the Beta version of “Ghost Steps,” a web-based application that will allow you to create sequences of ghostly footprints that can be projected on any surface.

With this application you can have a ghostly apparition walk up your wall and across the ceiling, or wind through your creepy graveyard scene.  Once your projector is setup you can quickly plot where the ghost will walk.   You can even have the footprints move around obstacles, or start and end at specific landmarks.

A full overview of this application’s controls and interface can be found here.

Many of the features we previously planned on adding (saving and loading sequences, triggering the sequence via key-press or a timer, custom colors, and different footprint styles) have already been added.  We will continue to update this application with bug fixes and new features based on your input.

This application is still in Beta, and its functionality will continue to expand based on our testing and guest feedback.

 Please let us know what you think!

    This is a fantastic idea. Very well thought out. The features you are going to add are exactly the ones I was thinking about. The ability to save a sequence as a video that could be loaded and run from a pico projector would be perfect. Very nice job!!!

    Thanks Samster!  Many of the top requested features have now been added.  This application is still in beta, so please help us out by reporting any issues you may have or features you would like to see in future builds!

    I love your Ghost Steps, thanks for putting it together!

    I’m trying to figure out how to make it actually function as a projection, without all the numbers on the steps and parameters and such showing.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks in advance!!
