The teaser video from Werther & Werther, my latest theatre lighting design with Arnold.
A simple way to control a moving head with a finger to be used as a follow spot…
Hand skeleton is captured by Leap Motion sensor and sent to Max6 via LeapToOSC.
Max6 scales signal and creates DMX frames which are sent over ArtNet to a Martin Mac600 moving head through an Enttec Open DMX Ethernet box.
A Korg NanoControl is used to control other parameters (like dimmer or colors).
Special thanks to Mano BOURCART and Alexandre GOUJON who helped me to setup this experiment.

Some short video samples of what is possible to do with a camcorder, a projector, some screens and Isadora for effects and mapping.
A camcorder captures some details on stage.
Its output is directly sent to the computer, processed in an Isadora patch and mapped on multiple screens on stage via a single projector.
A simple way to control Led Pixel Mapping using paint…
The black paper sheet is filmed by the camera and the video signal is acquired by a Max6 patch which downscales images to obtain a 4x16 pixels matrix.
RGB values of each video pixel are translated in DMX to control the light pixels of the 4 led tubes.
Any video signal (live or pre-recorded) would have worked, but the paint seemed more fun!
Yesterday, I took some B&W photos during a walk in Paris, testing my new Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 lens.
I recently looked for a way to import video footage using XDCAM EX codec in Premiere Pro CS6 for mac.
When I tried to import these files, I always had this error : “codec missing or unavailable”.
After some hours of googling, I found an article that solved my problem and may be useful for you too : http://www.jonathangrubbs.com/journal/pro-quicktime-codecs-no-fcp/
You just have to download ProApps QuickTime codecs, to unpack it and to copy QuickTime components to the right place.
Have fun !
First try of video control with ReacTIVision…
The setup includes 3 fiducials on a glass table with a camcorder below, a computer and a TV…
The camcorder films the 3 fiducials and transmits images to computer.
ReacTIVision analyses images to detect positions and orientations of fiducials and transmits them via TUIO protocol to PD, which makes a bit of scaling and transmits formatted values to Isadora.
Isadora plays 3 videos at the same time and moves them according to the values received from PD.
There is some lags and loose of tracking : I think that’s because my hardware setup (table + fiducials + camcorder + light) isn’t very optimized…
