Fractals without a computer - can this be done w Resolume?

Check out this video:



Basically copy the output from a camera to three projectors, and point the camera back to the screen. It generates all sorts of amazing fractals.

Shouldn't it be possible to do this in Resolume? Create three instances of a video camera generator, put them on the canvas, and stick a feedback in there?

I've tried, and haven't gotten too far - I'm probably misinterpreting how the feedback generator works.

Yes, this occurs whenver you point a camera at its own capture feed. Ideally you would want a dedicated monitor for this feed, otherwise if you use a projector screen as the feed then you may have to cover alot more distance when moving the camera around. Alot of what you see is usually the monitor and all the stuff around it, and sometimes whats on the screen if your feed isnt fullscreen, but if you just shoot a fullscreen feed without anything else in frame then you will get nothing.

This is a documentary from the 70's describing in more detail how this works. Neat stuff.
