Isadora 2.0 - Responses and Reactions from the Community


    Wise decision making by Mark and the Team!
    I am a believer!

  • i'm still processing the new information.

    it's not often i'm part of the conscious evolution of something so big as isadora.
    i think the main thing for me is that it works for you @mark.
    i'm happy to see where it leads.

  • I have had so much value out of Isadora over the years I think I'm way overdue another contribution to its future development.

    Really agree with the move.

  • Good news, I am just evaluating my gearbox again this summer.

    Did you do any testing on 4K playback with the Hap Codec? 
    If not I would happily test (I have loads of footage/2 different 4K Display setups, a blackmagic 4K input converter Box & 2 4K 60Hz capable macs)

    So happy it's out in the open. It's hard keeping secrets. I just want to say publically - thanks Mark. You work so damn hard, we all know you do, but I have the privalage (along with others) of seeing a little more than most. Isadora 2.0 is going to be amazing. It will really put isadora on the map. The mapper is incredible and when people see it and use it they will see why you/we have spent over a year developing it. Get ready everyone.... These are exciting times.

  • Sound exciting...

  • Thanks Mark,
    I love your software, I'll buy the update with no problem.
    I just can't wait to play with the new beast : Isadora 2.0 !


  • bello!


  • Spreading the word. Very exciting :)
    Isadora changed my life back in 2001.

  • Beta Gold

    I'm on the same page with Primaldivine and most of other used. My first isadora course as a professor on Isadora was also in 2000 on Isadora 0.7 I think... Happy almost birthday to 2.0!!

  • How much? for the new fee. looking forward ......


  • HAP support, SPOUT, and particularly javascript are very interesting developments.

    Wondering, will there be a demo version for 1.0 users interesting in upgrading?
    Looking forward to a reasonably well explained api for Javascript. Are you using google V8?
  • Izzy Guru

    The demo will remain the same; meaning the new release will have a demo you can test.

    I am 98% sure about this but please wait for the **official** statements from Mark on the said date.

  • That's great news, indeed! Looks very promising.

    I'm still not sure if I will buy the upgrade but I perfectly understand that all this hard work needs to be rewarded.

  • Finally the world gets to be excited for this huge step-up for Izzy!!!

    I am so happy for you, Mark. Thank you for all the amazing hard work that you've done, and still working away. We support you 100% without a doubt.
    This is a big news for the new media art world. As you're integrating even more powerful features that some of the popular softwares might even just provide one of them, and most of them have a much bigger team developing it!
    It will be worth the upgrade for sure. Even just knowing that we won't need to use additional mapping software and just do it within the new Izzy, it already save us money and so much trouble as well. 
    big ups,

  • Mark,

    I have the number 32 licence… not paying any upgrade since then, You deserve a contribution for your work!
    Thanks, Jacques
  • Beta Platinum

    Going to pay for the update for sure. I had the pleasure to work with the pro version for my last project in february. The mapping features, edge blend, etc are really great. Isadora really changed the way of my artistic work. Thank you Mark, Jamie, Graham, Gavin and this great community for sharing your knowledge.

    All the best from Vienna,

  • i'm remounting a show next year and i was thinking i'd have to spend €360 on a MadMapper license to speed up the mapping that i originally created in Isadora. I'm very happy to pay for an upgrade to be able to do this within Izzy. Nice one Mark.

    a lot of people ask me why Isadora remains my weapon of choice. its Mark's commitment to developing it, and the supportive nature of this community that keeps it firing on all cylinders.
    many thanks,

  • Congratulations Mark!

    The mapping feature sounds like a great integrated element.  Currently, I have been integrating the MadMapper system and have been very happy with the program.  However, there is currently an issue that only two full screen video feeds can sent from Izzy/Syphon to MadMapper.  If the included Izzy Mapper allows MORE than the current multi-stage ceiling limitation of syphon-madmapper,and is as easy to create mapping,  that would be a value that would make anyone doing mapping upgrade!
    Looking forward to working with v2

  • Psyched!!! Seriously, the quality of support and the upgrades that have already been provided in the past 3 years I've been using Izzy would be worth an upgrade fee already. Really looking forward to this Lukas
