This laboratory is a wide introduction to Vjing and projection mapping with the aim to explore the possibilities of live video and visual scenography using real time rendering and video mapping.
During the 4 days workshop, the participants will be introduced to the live performance possibilities of softwares such as Madmapper, VDMX and Syphon Recorder. Also we´ll explore and experiment with live video cameras, Kinect and sound interaction to expand the audiovisual experience.
The aim is that the assistants can defend themselves in a real environment. And to reach this, the last hours of the workshop, we ́ll organize an open doors session to show our creations the last hours of the laboratory.
For this occasion, we have the support of Garagecube and VDMX. Garage cube will supply us with a full license of the Madmapper and Modul8 and Vidvox one of VDMX software for every student that will run for one month without restrictions.
+ Computer: Mac (recommended Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.8 or newer) MadMapper 3.0 support windows system from windows 8.1 (not VDMX)
+ Video adapter into VGA or HDMI.
+ Optional: MIDI controllers, beamer and webcams.
Madmapper 3.0 is a simple but advanced tool for video mapping projections and light mapping. It was created to spend more time to focus on creating your content, and making the experience of mapping textures to physical objects in real time, than solving technical issues.
Madmapper 3.0 includes the possibility of adding shaders, materials and generators to each surface. This open a huge door for real time mapping.
VDMX is one of the most powerful and flexible software system for real time video. Based on a modular configuration, it allows to create your own user interface depending on your necessities. So nothing will be needless in your patch.
Also, a built-in audio analyzer translates any sound into light and movement with intelligent selectivity for volume, frequency, instrument and dynamic response.
Support many media types including QuickTime Movies, Hap encoded files, ISF / GLSL, Flash, HTML…
Syphon is an open source Mac OS X technology that allows applications to share frames - full frame rate video or stills - with one another in real-time. That give us the possibility of connecting several applications to suit your needs (Madmapper with VDMX, Modul8, Resolume…; Quartz Composer, MaxMSP, openFrameworks with MadMapper or VDMX; Madmapper with After Effects and many many more…)
