@fred I can see how that would be convenient for many things. I'm less than a month into learning this, so everything is new.
I'm still having trouble getting the mouse wheel to control the zoom. It doesn't seem to deal well with feedback loops. I want to get a value, add the scroll wheel delta, and put it back in that value. But even watching for triggers, I haven't gotten it to work cleanly. Seems to add the number a bunch of times in a loop.
For now, I'll just use right-mouse-down with vertical position for the zoom.
So I have left-mouse-down to drag the box around the screen and right-mouse-down to change the zoom. It's working well enough, but it seems kinda hard to get the mouse wheel controls to do what I'm looking for.
@woland yes! thanks, it's pretty much the same idea of using a TripleHead right? I'll try this
Yes, sort of. Making it one big video really helps things stay in synch. You may run into issues if your aspect ratios differ though. This method is also excellent when you're trying to edge-blend content across multiple projectors.
I have been a long time fan of Isadora and have only just come back into the realm of it due to a new job. I do appreciate the effort and advice I have received. It has been very helpful and has made me look good to a lot of people...:)!
publish the blend mode (transparent, additive, opaque) for elements of IzzyMap mappings. At the moment, it seems the only solution to have multiple blend modes for one mapping is to make separate copies of this mapping and manually change the blend mode for each. However, if one has encapsulated the mapping in a user actor so that it can apply to an entire show, one must manually copy and paste mappings back into the other blend mode versions, and manually change the blend mode again.It would be amazing if we could just use an input parameter on a scene by scene basis to use the same user-actor-contained mapping with different blend modes.
you're welcome. i use the Video Fader into Multimix combination regularly - often linked directly to the slider channels of a Korg NanoKontrol. the slightly confusing thing about it is that at zero it lets the video stream through, but at 100 its fully faded across to the background colour, so i tend to swap the MIN and MAX values so it works more like a hardware mixer.
No problem. About four years ago I spent three days going absolutely mad trying to figure this exact issue out. The forum pointed me in the right direction and now I include this step in all the shows I make.
@dillthekraut That looks brilliant. All these suggestions look great. It took a while for responses to come so I didn't realise anyone had responded but I've just finished touring my last project and started on the one with the interactive walls. I've got a lot of tech and experimentation to begin but this is a fantastic starting point. I got a kinnect for £8 and a webcam and am away from home for 2 months so I'll have a play with those then try out the Pi/Arduino/touchboard suggestions in the new year. I'll share my progress.
Team viewer works with mobile devices as well so you can control your desktop with a tablet device. This is great for pairing a MBP and iPad for example. The other thing about Team Viewer is it allows remote desktop over the web and that makes it popular for providing direct support and intervention for clients and collaborations such as monitoring an installation computer.

I use TeamViewer to give private Isadora workshops via the web, (with Skype or FaceTime), so folks can use my license to save their work. It works fabulously. I can show them things, and they can control my computer while working in the Patch.
