[ANSWERED] Mirroring iPad Display for Live input (Drawing on iPad)
I am a big fan of Isadora, even though I probably don't use it to all its potential..
I have a question: I would like to capture drawings made live on an iPad by a performer in Isadora to project then on screens and combine it with further footage.
If possible wireless.
I was able to do so via EasyCast, OBS virtual camera, but if possible I would like to reduce the amount of softwares running during a show.
Could someone help me out please?

Probably 10 different ways to do this, Since I'm have a lot of hardware at my disposal I chose hardware.
3 iPads airplaying to 3 Appletvs. converted to SDI then inputed with 3 Magwell SDI to USB converters into my trash can Mac. So 3 live iPads with 4-6 frames of delay, and everything is Isadora.

I’ve done this exact thing. There’s an app called Airserver that lets you mirror an iPad display to your Mac over airplay & output that through syphon.
I’d recommend drawing on procreate on your iPad as it has a mode where it only mirrors the canvas, and not the toolbars etc.
Thanks so much for the responses!
@craigw I would always prefer the hardware option, but I don't have much on my hands. Sounds like a reliable setup though..maybe in the future once fundings are better :)
@timkelly I will try Airserver, maybe the computer likes it better :) Thank you also for the procreate app tipp!
I can also verify that AirServer works like a breeze. If you need any help feel free to reach out / post the question on the forum.
