I'm using 2x christie pro+750 and a Sanyo PLC XF47 15k for the taller building.
It's about 150-200 feet to the side buildings and about 300 to the center one. It's been a challenge to make it visible because of the street lights, surface color and texture and the really busy scene at the intersection. Hence the high contrast B/W treatment.
I have more photos and info here [http://liviu.stoptime341.com/?p=1717](http://liviu.stoptime341.com/?p=1717)
there are on this week - worth coming to see! There is a good chance The Crackle might go to Berlin at some point later in the year - fingers crossed - would be great to meet people there again.
review of Through His Teeth
geek notes - am using a late 2011 mac mini, and a single £500 short throw projector (inFocus126ST), plus a load of cctv cameras coming in via mixer to canopus ADVC 110 and an EZcap / videoglide.
have made some nice little user actors and bits that I'll see if I can tidy them up and share :)
this is a performance in Berlin that I have been working on for the past while. We use Isadora for all the video and audio playback.
Say hi after the show, and we can have a drink at the bar. (The piece is in German and isn't translated for those non-German speakers).
My colleague and I are developing a performance piece that explores the socio-political issues of visibility in the experimental performing arts in Europe today.
Our format is a kind of parody structure of the Lecture Performance genre which in the piece itself, works with interactive video and sound, extensively.
We have performed developing iterations of this project in Dusseldorf. In the fall we will be developing it much further.
We are looking for a person **well-experienced with Isadora** to be a part of our creative team in the fall period -- who can participate in developing this project into more complex territory. Building patches, finding interesting solutions and artistic proposals to complex sequences, etc.
Working dates in Amsterdam TBD. Performances are scheduled for November in the Het Veem Theater Amsterdam.
The **Video Processing Designer is a compensated position**. Must be available to work in Amsterdam in a hands-on way with the Co-Creators of the piece, in the fall.
Our project is funded by German and Dutch public sources.

Some users have discovered a bug that appears only with Mac OS 10.9 (Mavericks) where pictures loaded into the Picture Player do not fully draw. (Usually only part of the image is drawn; the rest is black.) This seems to only happen when certain settings in the Preferences are not set to the default. If you are experiencing this problem, please go to the Video tab of the Isadora Preferences and check the "Default Resolution" setting, as well as the "When Combining Video" setting. This bug only seems to happen when the default resolution does not match the resolution of the pictures, and the "When Combining Video" popup is set to Scale to Default Resolution. The problem only occurs occasionally. It is not consistent. For an immediate workaround, do one of the following: 1) change the default resolution to match your pictures 2) scale your pictures to match the default resolution 3) change the "When Combining Video" popup to "Scale to Largest" or "Scale to Smallest." I am currently searching for a permanent solution to this problem. Finally, I generally would not recommend using "Scale to Default Resolution." When you choose "Scale to Default" in the "When Combining Video" popup menu, the resolution of every video, picture, or generator (e.g. Text Draw) is forced to the resolution specified by the default resolution. This is a "brute force" solution -- Isadora may actually run more slowly depending on the source material. A much better way would be to organize your media so that it is a the right resolution in the first place, and to use the "Resizable Bkg" actor as a input to generators (like Shapes or Text Draw) to explicitly control the resolution.
