Couple of questions.



  • Hi everybody,

    I'm a newbie with Isadora and practicing with the demo version for about a month . I've been through all the mark's tutorials which are very helpful, but I still have a couple of general questions. Sorry if this questions has been already treated in the past.
    _ Isadora is controllable via Dmx but is there any actors to send or receive  Artnet protocol ( which is basically Dmx over ethernet) ?
    _ Can Isadora  be synched with timecode (SMPTE or MTC) ?
    _ I use Isadora on a mac but I tried it on windows too, and I noticed that  there's some actors ( 3D smoke for instance) which are not available on the mac version. Is there a reason for that ?
    Thanx for your answers.

    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    _ Isadora is controllable via Dmx but is there any actors to send or receive  Artnet protocol ( which is basically Dmx over ethernet) ?
    You can use Quartz Composer tools for artnet: [http://kineme.net/product/ArtNetTools](http://kineme.net/product/ArtNetTools)
    And to control DMX you need to use something like a LANBOX or ENTTEC; more info on the recommended page here: [http://troikatronix.com/support/recommended/](http://troikatronix.com/support/recommended/)
    _ Can Isadora  be synched with timecode (SMPTE or MTC) ?
    You can sync them via OSC but not directly with SMPTE or MTC. There are a few custom MTC actors floating about but more for show control not timing in a linear fashion.
    _ I use Isadora on a mac but I tried it on windows too, and I noticed that  there's some actors ( 3D smoke for instance) which are not available on the mac version. Is there a reason for that ?
    Mac and PC use different frameworks and Mark does his upmost to keep them the same. 3D smoke isn't actually supposed to be publicly available I think it slipped through the net from one of Marks shows :) if its working then you are lucky ;)
    Core Video actors are mac only and based around Quartz Composer which is mac only. You can't access them on Windows.
    Hope this helps for now :)
