I brought this issue up with Lynn and he very kindly recompiled a set of FFGL plugins with the previous IDs to that we can have a drop in replacement that will not require rebuilding our show files :).
That's really kind of him!
@mwasser - thanks for the information - it looks like this might be a good option - i shall investigate your links and report back. i use SoundJack for realtime audio - its worth checking out if you want a low-latency, high quality audio stream to a specific IP.John
@bonemap -- I haven't read your thread yet, but we figured out that AirServer takes possession of the screen on the computer whenever the iDevice's screen is rotated. The solve for this is to lock the screen orientation on the device.@barneybroomer -- Setting the iPhones into Guided Access mode is essential to avoid the screen getting locked out or the app getting closed by touching the Lock or Home buttons. Guided Access also allows you to disable parts of the screen on the device which the performer might accidentally touch and cause the app to open a display you don't want to appear.Regardless, if possible I recommend training performers on how to use AirPlay and Guided Access. In our process the performers were a quite overwhelmed by it, so that burden fell to our diligent ASM. However, if your actors comfortably understand how Guided Access and Air Play mirroring work, they can easily reestablish a lost connection.
@Maximortal @DusX I did it, it works really fine. I used the pluguins that are in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Spout to NDI\FFGL folder, I located them in the ffgl folder of isadora and I put the Processing.NDI.Lib.x86.dll in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Isadora. The order of lanching the apps is crucial, thanks a lot! I will continue studying this very interesting software.
switching to cat6
Just to reiterate the use of cat 6 cable and to add that if your cable is running through a theatre grid or near other cables that could produce interference it is my experience that shielded cat 6 cable is a good idea. I got a local av company to make up a 40 mtr shielded cat 6 cable for this purpose. It was not cheap but I have been able to hire it back to the theatre a number of times for other shows because it reduces so many issues when using video extenders through their 'noisy' grid.
@LucieDance the easiest way (no code and no lib install at all) to get Kinect info on mac is to use synapse http://synapsekinect.tumblr.co...It will pass all the coordinates through OSC. Nimate can be quite annoying to install, here it's already packed in the app.
