[ANSWERED] TouchDesigner to Isadora - multiple NDI outs?
Hi all - working on a show that's using TouchDesigner piped through Isadora to project some particle systems and audio-reactive stuff. We've got TouchDesigner on a PC, and Isadora on a Mac, connected over Ethernet and sending/receiving NDI signals. Isadora's NDI watcher sees the NDI input from TouchDesigner, but my designer has multiple NDI outputs he'd like to send, and Isadora currently is only able to see one/whatever was last opened. He basically wants to cue through the different outputs in TouchDesigner, with each Izzy cue pulling from a different output. I will admit to not being as experienced with TouchDesigner, so I was wondering if there were something I could do on the Isadora end of things to make that possible - or if it's some programming that needs to happen within TD. Any advice would be much appreciated!
it's some programming that needs to happen within TD
It's this. If he only outputs one NDI stream at a time from TD, there's only one NDI stream for Isadora to pull in. If he's outputting multiple NDI streams at the same time from TD, you can use multiple NDI Watcher actors in Isadora to pick up the individual streams.
Each stream in TD will need a unique name/id
As my colleagues already touched on. Each single stream would need their own unique ID.
