Can anyone recommend a good reliable and robust remote clicker that I can use with Isadora? You know the thing, that you use to remote control powerpoint presentations. A forward and back button and an integrated laser pointer. The one that I've been using for the last couple of years has just embarrased me in front of an audience for the last time....
@dusx Thanks for your answer. It is a student who is using Isadora to pass images in this show, in a very simple way. He tells me that they closed Isadora by mistake a few times during the show. I haven't seen the patch yet, once I see it I'll see what I can do to avoid it.
Just made a new test with "Monitors using separate space" and it is working good (see the pictures). I could use 3 stages with three different screen (2 Monitors and a projector connected to the Apple TV)+ the screen of my MacBook and the films were running on the 3 screens.
I have been able to run Isadora on a Mac Studio (M1Max). I am still trying out a number of Isadora scenarios on the machine. I have been impressed by the ability of the machine to support multiple video outputs natively, for me - this is the primary reason for choosing the Mac Studio. I have tested the multi video output options with (so far) up to 6 projectors + control monitor, and with two simultaneous Matrox TrippleHead2Go devices. The machine has remained quiet and it has operated beautifully.
When using the Mac Studio I did notice a limited selection of video resolutions were supported compared to the AMD GPU’s in previous Macs. I installed SwitchResX to see if additional resolutions could be set. However, it did not appear to have any effect on available resolutions through the M1Max chip, even though the utility appeared to define more.
The availability of USB A ports, HDMI out, Ethernet, and audio out, make it much more direct when connecting peripherals.
It has nearly as much connectivity as the legacy trash can Mac Pro but that is about the closest comparison in terms of I/O support in a Mac for some time.
I tested Isadora in Rosetta mode with the OpenNi add on. I could not notice any performance loss. Although, I experienced consistent freezes on the OpenNi video and interface node using a Kinect V2.
The machine is compact and therefore is going to offer portability - perhaps again similar to the trashcan Mac Pro.
I am curious to how the machine will perform over time. It may be prone to sucking in dust and that may effect thermal performance.
hello, we need to feed in artnettimecode to a obsidian control nx1. the software on that console is onyx. it is also able to receive midi or smtp timecode, but not this console. so we need a stable sender app for this. and isadora is nearly perfect in every case, but it has to learn artnet tc, please.
I got the "Mixed Format Media Warning". Thanks for introducing this warning and to make clear, that not all video files are in the best format. Unfortunately, I always struggle to find the best codec and container for video files on Windows.
It would be nice to have an option, so that Isadora automatically converts the video files in the best format for using the files in Isadora. It would be ok when I have to say Isadora, which files I just want to play forward with normal speed and which files I want to do special things like playing backward and so on.
Since Isadora is able to read all these files and do the uncompressing and decoding in real time, it is maybe also possible to let Isadora convert and save the files to an optimal codec and container beforehand. With the optimal file format for Isadora, much performance can be gained.
