@mark Thanks Mark. I downloaded GLC_player but wasn't immediately obvious how to edit the file. I'll have a look at Cheetah3D. Your file worked fine anyway so, as always, one has to decide what to spend limited time and effort on without disappearing down a rabbit hole!
It is a really powerful feature. One thing to be aware of is that turning On the User actor, triggers the INIT function of all contained actors. This is actually very useful, but can be confusing if you are not aware. I suggest using the User Actor on/off within the user actor as a way of seeing the INIT occur (note. you can copy this actor to the main scene patch, and force the re-INIT of all actors as well... super helpful)
I was curious about the idea, if there is MiniDP to DP adapters, shouldn't it work the other way around as well?! So here is just some Adapter fun 🤪; If you already own a USB-C to DP adapter, you could go with this DP to miniDP adapter (No garantie that this realy works 😜).
I have had better experiences using the Blackmagic design codecs (included with their video capture software - free).
However. At 5 mins you will likely hit the Avi containers max filesize... This will truncate your video.
I would use OBS to record a Spout feed from your stage. This would record realtime, so you patch needs to run smoothly in real-time. The nice thing about this approach is it off loads see work from Isadora, so you have more cpu space to use.
This was resolved via the ticket system. In the current release of Isadora, if you have some special characters in the file name, eg / \ | ? * ", then the capture actors won't work correctly. This has been fixed in an internal beta and thus this won't be a problem once we have a new public release.
