MadMapper 2.5 beta 5 is now available to all #MadMapper BETA registered users. Check the beta program newsletter. Thanks to extensive tests and your helpful feedbacks we added a lots of improvements to MadMapper and the #miniMAD.
+ Added Image Folder player
+ Added Text Generator & Grid Generator
+ Canon: updated to EDSDK 3.5
+ Added Image Folder player (plays a folder of image, where you can add /remove files dynamically)
+ Added vertex noise shader on 3D Surfaces
+ Added “New project from Video Wall template” to create a video wall (that you can export several synced miniMADs in a few steps)
+ Movie synchronisation over the network: connect the miniMADs on the same ethernet network to synchronise them automatically (including media change, pause, restart, playback mode, audio mode, image display time)
+ Mesh-warping support on Quads
+ Brightness / contrast per surface export from MadMapper + individual and global control in miniMAD: press Blue to switch to the next surface
+ Movie restart function by holding the down button on the miniMAD
+ Whole surface moving using the miniMAD buttons
+ Faster control point selection by holding yellow & blue buttons while in mapping mode
+ Media selection using 1,2,3..0 keys on the USB keyboard
+ Improved overall performance
+ Improved control modes status display (coloured outlines)
Export to miniMAD:
+ Added video file cropping to the visible part on the selected projector resulting in better overall performance and quality on the miniMAD in addition to avoiding manual video file cropping when using synchronisation
+ No more media scan at opening or when inserting the miniMAD SD-card ... See MoreSee Less
Casey J ScalfI have so much respect for all of the work you put int this tool. But we haven't used any of the new stuff ebcause it's BETA. The supossedly stable version still crashes enough to be of actual worry. I understnad innovation but I would really apprecaite stability since this is a tool used for legitimately million dollar productions.6 days ago · 1
Valeriy SoprunovI can't complete registration. Because that... I try it in Chrome and Safari. Nothing changed. How can I got the Beta in another way?6 days ago
CultureHub Mappathon© is a 2-day projection mapping marathon workshop. The students will create a projection mapping object, learning the latest projection mapping techniques and technologies.
The projection mapping technology can turn almost any surface into a dynamic video display. Specialized software, Modul8 and MadMapper, are used to create animation, warp and blend projected images, so they fit perfectly on irregularly shaped “screens”.
DAY 1: Basic
• What is a projection mapping?
• Making visual contents using Modul8.
• Projection mapping with MadMapper.
• Introducing new features: Multiple Inputs, 3d Surfaces with realtime lighting and shadows, Fast Playback Engine, SVG import to animated lines
DAY 2: Making a Projection Mapping Installation
• Exercise & Producing a Projection Mapping Installation... See MoreSee Less
CultureHub LED Mappathon
CultureHub LED Mappathon is two day workshop where students will learn basic knowledge of Projection Mapping technology to map LED lights.
Our exercise will be choosing right types of LED light, recognizing how the video contents map and control LED light, and creating a simple geometric LED lights structure to take away using MadMapper 2.5 Beta with new features, Surface Shaders and more. We also will be showing GarageCube's new LED light product, and more advanced LED light structure demonstration during this workshop. All students will receive a free 30-day full access of Modul8 and MadMapper.
DAY 1: Basic
• Introducing New MadMapper 2.5 Beta
• Basic knowledge of different LED lights.
• The principles of LED Mapping with MadMapper (DMX / Artnet).
• How to connect a White Flexible LED Strip, a Power Supply, a USB DMX controller, a LED DMX drive to MadMapper.
• Learn how to make a LED Mapping using MadMapper.
DAY 2: Making a LED light Installation
• Exercise & Designing a simple geometric LED light installation controlled by real-time video.... See MoreSee Less
