My image got stretch marks
When playing back content from my 3D camcorder, if you aren't wearing shutter glasses then the result is pretty blurry and bland looking. After putting on the glasses, the scene jumps to life. So while putting together a sample photo to promote how it works, I wanted to superimpose a better 2D image, and stretch it over the existing image of a screen in the photo. It had been awhile since I've done anything real with math, so I took a half hour and figured out a couple equations to do the mapping, ......

Welcome to my blog, largely about .NET development using C#, but also about video, algorithms, SQL, Javascript, and other geeky subjects. To introduce myself, I'm an ASP.NET developer for a large financial institution, and enjoy all things code. Having a complete passion for the bits and bytes buried deep in every device we see around us, let's get this blog started on the right track with three articles with full source code! Two about GDI+, and one about reflecting on assemblies. Creating GIFs ......
