Isadora 2.0 - Responses and Reactions from the Community



  • Filled out the form.

    Although its not my daily software of choice as I'm a programer myself and don't need video i do use it for education and some theatre / dance work. Im interested to see the mapping because a previous theatre project did not have the cash in the budget to buy isadora so we used my mac for the show using my mad mapper . Possibly i can convince the company this is what they need ;-)
    Ill upgrade because £60 is cheap in the grand scheme of things and it doesn't matter if you use it a lot.
    I know of companies in the UK that have the same perception of stability - some i have worked with using Isadora for 18 months on major projects and others that use QLAB instead.
    Adding in javascript is a good call - I'm really interested to see the new SDK/API . 
    For me, if i want to use video playback/video effects on the gnu its easier to use Isadora than code using processing and shaders, however once you start to want to blend the two - performance on the machine is critical and this is where i personally have been let down even using top grade mac pro at the time sat on rock solid Snow Leopard. Mavericks has messed a lot with usb webcams especially macam drivers and ps2 cam in Isadora (and other software too so tis not just isolated) so understand the problems with architecture and frameworks changing and the constant battle to ensure what worked yesterday still works today - let alone add new or improve on existing features.
    Look forward to trying it out.


  • ps. What Graham did at Glasto looked mega.



  • Just wanted to add my congratulations and deep thanks for everything Mark and the team are doing and how they are doing it. 1k thanx!

    CONGRATULATIONS MARK AND THE WHOLE TEAM!!!!!!!!

    I LOVE THE NEW SEXY ISADORA'S DRESS AND THE NEW FEATURES!!!!! I'LL UPGRADE FOR SURE IN ALL THE PLACES WHERE I TEACH AND GIVE WORKSHOPS. AND ISADORA WILL BE THE CENTRAL PIECE OF SOFTWARE IN THE DANCE AND NEW MEDIA LAB I'M SETTING UP IN MY NEW JOB AS AN ASSOCIATED  PROFESSOR IN UNIVERSITÉ DU QUEBEC A MONTREAL (CANADA).
    ISADORA 2.0 YEAH!


  • Joke or error? Am I the first or the only one?
    Tonight, impatient about this so expected new jewel, I take a look to the forum, then to the Pre-realeases page of the website and what do I see? The 2.0.0b1 available!!!!
    I download it, nervously install it in a fresh folder, run it and... A splash screen telling me " Welcom to Isadora 1.5" !
    No, no... Probably a mistake... I click and  discover a very familiar soft  looking just like the 1.5.3f28... No new feature, no fancy dress...
    Before starting to cry I check the "about" menu wich is telling me 2.0.0b1 !!!
    ???!!!???
    And the save function is not disable while I did not upgrade... I am for sure in front of a 1.5 pretending to be a 2...



  • same to me.
    after weeks and weeks of waiting can't stand no joke.

  • Dear All,

    The pre-release version of 2.0.0b1 does not include the 2.0 features until you purchase the upgrade.
    In addition, I do not yet have a demo version of 2.0 that allows to you try the new features. That's coming in a few days.
    Users with an existing license can download and use this version, and all the features they currently have (e.g., Core Video upgrade) will be there. But the new stuff won't appear until you purchase the upgrade.
    I'm sorry if this transition phase is a little confusing. We wanted to increment the version number to 2.0 because we're letting those who have joined the early adopter program purchase licenses now. We want the copy they have to say 2.0.
    I'll have added a note to the pre-releases page about this to clarify make things clearer.
    Best Wishes,
    Mark

  • I purchased as well but I still have not being able to see it... renamed old version app and folder, reinstalled, same result, crashes immediately :-(



  • @Mark: Question about 2.0 upgrade non-USB licensing: is this going to be the good old 3 licenses per year deal?

    Thanks.

  • no problems with upgrading.

    congratulation to Mark and crew,
    Luka  


  • @bruper,

    Do you by any chance have "v002 Screen Capture" installed? It seems to have a problem with 2.0\. Another user was getting the same crash, uninstalled  "v002 Screen Capture", and then everything was fine.
    Please check for this.
    Otherwise, file a bug report and **compress (please!)** a crash report and send it to us as a bug report.
    Best Wishes,
    Mark


  • Dear All,

    Just a small update. I was hoping to process the remaining early adopters tonight, but I am stuck at a hotel in Copenhagen with an internet connection that is only barely useable. I will be back home in Berlin tomorrow, and will be processing these orders starting at 10am or so. Those of you who are waiting can expect to see your upgrade notices then.
    Also, for those of you who got 2.0.0b1 -- there will be an new build tomorrow fixing some things that the first batch of early adopters found. It will be 2.0.0b2.
    Thanks for the patience
    Good Night,
    Your intrepid leader,
    Mark


  • Rest intrepid leader!



  • @eight: to answer your question about 3 per year: yes. ;-)

    -- M


  • Do we need a 2.0 section in the forum?



  • @mark: YES, IT WORKS, it was in fact "v002 Screen Capture" Thank you very much!! by the way, in the bug report page there is not yet a 2.0 selection possibility, I wanted to do it yesterday but then I choose not to, to avoid confusion
