Thanks, looks really interesting... some of the work produced with bagnoise's sampler (http://www.adt.org.au/proximity) seems quite spectacular. Some similarities with the Uncles & Angels show I have been working on, described in an earlier post, but I did not go via Quartz... looking forward to checking the looper out.
I'm sure I did have Load Save All Settings When Starting/Stopping Video Input turned on but I will double check; to be honest I created the patch on ym machine and transferred it over to the 'show' machine so perhaps its not selected.
In the list it comes up with very possible combination of input size/format with PAL/NTSC; it seems PAL/NTSC are not separated. I will take a screen shot later.
I am working on the machine later on today so I will see how it goes.
yet another update: so something that started as a video capture glitch (still not resolved) has turned into an even bigger problem:
The live video feed shows a black picture unless the force aspect ratio is unticked in the live capture settings box.... this means that the resolution of the live feed is 720x576, and there is therefor a drag on the image. Needless to say that capturing has now an even bigger glitch and the video has an even greater drag....
The compression setting is jpeg.
I remember having a very similar problem last year that was resolved by ticking the Hardware Accelerated Rendering box....which I cannot find on this newer version. Does it make sense to uninstall and re-install and earlier version of Izzie for the time being?
Having a similar problem except I disagree with the answer above.
I have 2 firewire DV devices connected to a single bus. Different models of camera, plugged into a firewire hub and then into the computer QLab will happily display both of them though, so I can't see how its an inherent firewire design flaw. Why can't Isadora show me both inputs? Is there a work around other than buying some USB hardware?
Now I just need an iPhone so I can try it myself. Will try to come up with one here in Berlin so I can give it a go.
P.S. Does anyone know if this app will work the same on an iPad with a camera? (Don't have that either, but might be easier for me to get a hold of it.)
Ha... yeah. I'm sorry you guys, I just haven't had time to focus on this (which I'm sure is silly and simple to fix.) I'll try again to see what I can find out.
Thanks for the reminder.
as mentioned you need the kinect power adapter to connect your Kinect to your computer. The connector that the kinect has may have thrown you off as it kinda'a looks like firewire, but it is not. it's a proprietary connector that plugs into its xbox360 port.
If you need to connect it to a computer or an older xbox360 unit, then you need to use a Kinect power adapter, which will provide a USB connector in addition to powering the Kinect. the power adapter is sold separately
I just tested the patch on my windows machine with a 1920x1920 image.
I tried a few different settings configs and can't get it to play smooth.
It is inconsistent as to when and how the stutters occur, but they are there.
Please keep in mind: when multiple videos are being mixed together, they follow the rule set by the "When Combining Video" setting in the Video Tab of the Isadora Preferences. If this is set to "Scale to Smallest Image (Faster)" then all of the images will be scaled to the smallest resolution of all the videos being fed to the Multimix actor.
In other words, if you had three videos – 1920 x 1080, 720x576, 320x240, the output would be 320x240\. This means that the 1920x1080 video, for instance, is being scaled down to 320x240 -- this can be very heavy on the CPU.
You will get much better performance if all the videos are the same resolution.
When you send the video to the Stage using a Projector actor, any scaling is done on the video card. So this is very fast.
Hopefully that makes things clearer.
OK -- it is a kind of bug, but one that is easy to solve. In the receiver patch, you have defined
in the Stream Setup window. These are Isadora's pre-defined OSC inputs. Isadora should not let you use them in the Stream Setup window -- and I will change to code to prevent this in the future. But, if you clear the Stream Setup list and run your patch again, I think you'll find it works.
For a very easy installation, there is airbeam, a little iPhone app sending image and sound to your PC, using syphon to connect in Isadora, a little delay with a rough image, but cheap and reliable, good to test thinks.
