Big news from Izzy HQ…. Isadora 2.1 Some very nice additions here to expand on the already amazing version 2.0:

Isadora v2.1 adds several new features to Isadora v2.0, and addresses bugs in the previous release. Highlights of the new features include:

  • More Flexible Video Routing: Isadora v2.1 allows GPU video to be routed directly to multiple stages at the end of the rendering chain.
  • Improved native Black Magic Video capture integration provides low latency video capture and output.
  • Many Isadora video processing actors have been enhanced to offer highly efficient GPU processing while retaining their classic CPU functionality.
  • Newly added FreeFrameGL (FFGL) effects offer additional video processing options
  • Global variables allow easy scene to scene communication.
  • New patching shortcuts speed up common tasks when connecting actors.

Isadora Art Gallery Interactive.


I have been working on a nice little project at work. I’d rather not say too much about it just yet as it’s a bit of a secret.

But it’s basically a push button interactive that will use a webcam and Isadora. Its stand alone and fully automated. Here is a glimpse of it from the back – if you are a techy like me then you always like to see the ‘guts’ of the piece.

A 32″ samsung LED TV has been used. A standard 2015 mac mini, a HD Logitec webcam, the amazing Makey Makey original board with a commercial grade push button. All houses in a custom made frame.

I will take some more pictures and probably some video once the project is complete.

Here are a few images!

3D Lines and the 3D Renderer actors. *updated*


This shows you some nice ways of using the 3D line actors and 3D renderer actor – which is pretty new.

Previously the 3D actors have been like projectors; meaning they are the end of the line before the video goes out to the stages. But now you can turn the ‘destination’ setting to renderer and it re-directs the video to the 3D renderer actor.

So…. this opens up a lot of possibilities!

Enjoy!

*UPDATE* (July 2017)

The 3D Renderer actor has since been replaced with the Virtual Stage Actor.

See attached file as a demo.
