GPU Movie Player to 2 stages



  • @matttennie, @jhoepffner

    In the new build, which are are very much hoping to have out at the end of April, we will provide an option to solve this problem. 
    In the meantime, let me just say that you can make a gigantic preview stage -- whatever resolution you like -- and just move it to the bottom of the screen or somewhere out of the way. Even though you can't see the entire stage, it will still work to send the information to Syphon, etc.
    Best Wishes,

    great news!



  • Mark, Fine to hear it!



  • Mark (and others...) I've had a problem yesterday trying to use a dualhead analog matrox and I feel this is linked to this thread : I had connected it to two beamers and setup the preferences in OSX and in Isadora as suggested in the manual. When I am in the finder, I can take a window and take it to the second display to show it on one or the other of the beamers, depending on the 'left half' / 'right half' setting. But when I output the corresponding stage, there's no way to use the two beamers, I can only output on one, the second one stays stuck on a generic finder picture. That looks like a bad fullscreen management. Where am I wrong ?
    My setup mbp i7 2.3 ghz 16 Go OSX 10.8.5 on SSD



  • @Stephane_Morisse,

    I don't believe this is related to the above thread.
    If you are using a Dual Head 2 Go, and assuming the Dual Head 2 Go appears on display 2, the Preferences should be set like this
    Stage 1: Place On = Display 2 - Left Half
    Stage 2:  Place On = Display 2 - Right Half
    Is this how you have the Preferences set?
    Best Wishes,

    @Stephane_Morisse 

    The matrox basically upscales the video and makes the video *think* its going to one output. What it really does is give you a huge 2560x1024 resolution. **Not** two 1920*1024 screens. So you have to use the settings as Mark said above as the computer will only see the Matrox as one big screen. In Isadora you have to basically chop the video in Half which Mark has cleverly coded to do. 


  • @Mark : don't have the matrox for a few days but I think that's the way you describe the settings in the manual and so I think I tried this. Going to check this as soon as possible.
    @Skulpture : I had a look in the manual of course and set up Izzy like this, using left half and right half...



  • Dear All,

    For anyone reviewing this thread, the next release of Isadora will allow texture based video (vid-gpu) to be sent to any stage. This should alleviate some of the issues with getting video where you want it. We're testing this release now and trying to get it out as soon as we can.
    Best Wishes,
