Hi,

congratz on the software! Really good work. Downloaded and did some basic test. For now i use VPT http://hcgilje.wordpress.com/vpt/ to map in combination with Resolume and Quartz Composer.
But the option to load an .obj is a really, really good idea! Also the soft-edge feature looks amazing; Haven't tested this yet with projectors but on screen it looks very good.

Would really love to use it in mappings but i lack 2 (in my opinion offcourse) things:

Syphon on the output: It can grab syphon servers but it's not able to be a syphon server? This could be great for backup. I do mappings and record the output with the syphonrecorder. than just play the content from another computer or even dvd as backup. It would also be possible to load it into other syphon-compatible softwares as quartz and resolume...

Second but not if the software could act as syphon server: i mostly need more than 10 meshes f.e. if i have lot's of cubes i want to be able to map more than 10 without having to spread the content (texture) on to more then one square.

Nevertheless: really really nice! Development goes on?

Thank for you for this feedback. Development certainly goes on. I was thinking putting the project on github, which would facilitate a collaborative effort. But I intend to wait until I have made it run on Max6 as well.

Once it works on Max6 then your Syphon request should be rather easy to implement, if it can be implemented without perfermance penalties for those that dont need that feature.

On your first request: There is a workaround, you could create all your cubes (or squares?) inside one mesh (with blender for example). or spread them to 4 meshes so you can use all four available texturechains. But you will be limited by the 4 textures available - VPT doesnt know this limitation as far as I remeber.

If its only squares you want to map, then VPT might be the better tool, unless you wanna use softedges because your squares are getting bigger and bigger and....

To wrap it up: Further development of this tool heavily depends on the sort of support I get for it. Until this point, all I wanted to do is to keep my awkward prototyp out of the drawer and shape it up to face the needs of the world. What comes next really depends on others...

cheers

Streaming Syphon is now a fixed feature in MWServer since R004.
