• I'm just starting to learn to use Isadora.  I'm trying to connect it to a knock off makey makey, which only connects to the arrow keys.

    Is there a way to trigger short video clips by hitting an arrow button?

    Also, can you make the same button trigger different videos each time you hit it?

    For triggering videos with the arrow button you have to use the "keyboard watcher" actor. Assign the arrow key to the right to add 1 to the float counter and the arrow key to the left to subtract 1 to the float counter. This way you can cycle through your videos. To assign the arrow keys to the "keyboard watcher" actor click into the black field of the "key range" input. Type a single quotation mark (') on the keyboard, then click on the right arrow and again a single quotation mark ('). Do the same on a second Keyboard watcher for the left arrow. You will see an empty space between the quotation marks, but thats fine.
