Edge blending / masks
benju last edited by
I am currently also playing around with soft-edge-blending possiblities to edge-blend two projectors with Isadora. Until now, my approch was using alpha-masks/ramps, which works so far, but it's not really handy and I am also afraid of getting a nasty brighter or darker center on the overlap as I cannot control the gamma curve this way.
Are there any news about the best practice on edge blending with Isadora?
I am developping the patch on a pc, but the final project will be running on a mac. So a solution which works for pc and mac would be the best. Unfortunately this also means I cannot test the Quartz-solutions, but If this is the best/only reasonable approach, I will be able to borrow a mac from somebody for the preparations.

Hello,Read this old discussion... Will be great to edge-blending two projectors directly with Isadora ( and not have to tinker ). It seem to me not a creasy possibility for professional software at this day

Thanks Skulpture. I appreciate you doing that. So with this file I should go through Blendy and Madmapper to do the edge blend. Also what do the fader actors do in this setup?
You had "Control Watcher" actor linked to each individual projectors intensity - presumably so you could fade each in/out each output? This does the same thing in essence.There are a few options really. Edge blend seems to be the common method for the time being.You need to send this out via a syphon output.

on a production in february i fell in love with Mapio - granted it was a bit of a pain to do back then since I had to do a work around to get mapio to work inside quartz (it was more a plugin than a stand alone application) so I was doing Isadora > Syphon > Quartz with Mapio output.But mapio 2.0 lite is out and mapio 2 pro will be out soon... looks like you can just syphon right into mapio 2.0 and use that as the final output interface to do mapping/edge blending/cropping/warping in some kind of ready intuitive way. Anyways I will probably be going that route for the remount in the next few months.http://visution.com/mapio

It can also be used as a FFGL plugin! @Mark, that's potentially very exciting for our future!

Hello all,SEB actor is not working for me, so I went hunting through the wide web.I've tested Millumin, Blendy, Mapio2lite.After that, I jumped on this thread: http://www.vidvox.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=5863&p=21811&hilit=edge+blend#p21811I downloaded the edgeBlend-01.qtz which is intended to work with a TripleHeadToGo, and I modified it to blend for a Dual Head to Go.I will test it with 2 projectors tomorrow.Attached are the QC comp.Hope they can help.Regards Loïc
Thanks @lpipoz :)
