  • wonderfull! 
  • amazing, no, lo siguiente!  :-)

  • This is amazing. Will it be seen in any other software via syphon or is it a closed signal?

  • Hello @Skulpture,

    No, it's not Syphon : this plugin is only available for Millumin.

  • amazing indeed, 
    any chance you make a photoshop version, Philippe ? 

  • Hello @eMTv,

    Not sure. Please create an idea on Uservoice : it helps to keep track of user requests, and see if other people are interested.

  • yes good work! 
    but I don´t understand which is the utility or improvement in the mapping general workflow, if  you can do the same, a live fullscreen output of your AE composition to the projector, directly from AE without any extra software, plugin o whatever...
    with all respect, of course...because if you don´t konw it, this plugin would be absolutely necessary, but seriously..  to have the same... it´s only a shortcut directly from AE
  • Hello @indavideo303,

    This plugin is very helpful because it can connect After Effects with Millumin, a software that have all the facilities for videomapping : perspective correction, warping, masks, surface spliting, ...
    It's a bridge, not a

    Watch this video, and try to do the same only with After Effects : you could probably do some simple contour-animations, but I doubt you could do more ... Let me know.

  • Hi Phillipe.  Would it be possible to save the sample file as a CS5 version? I cant open your CS6 file!  Awesome looking plugin, I thing Indavideo has missed the point completely!
  • Hello @empyfree,

    You can redownload the ZIP file : I put a CS5.5 version.
    By the way, if you could convert this CS5.5 version to CS5 version (from menubar, click on "File" then "Save as ..."), I could add it to the ZIP file (unfortenatly, I only have CS6 and CS5). Please send it to if possible.

    Thank you. Philippe
  • Cheers Phillipe, I'll have to wait for somebody else to create the lower version!  I cant open the CS5.5 version either!  Cheers for trying. 
  • Hello @empyfree,

    You can create your own project, and you'll be able to use the After Effects plugin as well !
    The project is just an example with contour-animation, light-effects, ... Nothing very special ...

  • Hi Philippe

    I'm not sure what I did wrong.  T T 
  • Hello @OrsumP,

    Did you create a composition in After Effects, so there is something to output towards Millumin ?
    I tested it with After Efects CS5, and everything is ok.

  • Jumped into using this plug-in for a job. Very efficient once getting the hang of the workflow. Great for previz. I don't have to render a clip several times over to see the results. Nice work.
  • I love it !!!! Great function!
  • hi there!

    i can't open after cs6 on millumin, the plugin is there and doesn't show on millumin inputs...and i have the comp. in after like you said before...what am i doing wrong?  maverick osx
  • Hello @invader,

    Be sure to use the lastest version of Millumin. What version do you use ?

    Best. Philippe
  • @invader If you buy the plugin, I can guarantee it will work. Stop cracking things 'Filipe Pereira'.

  • hello, Pwhat folder should I paste the plug-in Effect, extensions, format? thanks
  • Hello @mogwat,

    Please download the zip file (see the first post above), then follow the instructions in the "Readme.txt" file.

  • This is super-usefull, thanks a lot Philippe.
  • Wow, is it a big step to do the same for apple motion?
  • Hello @franzschuier,

    We don't have experience in Apple Motion, so it won't be quick and fast. But feel free to submit an idea on Uservoice : it helps us to keep track of user requests, and see their popularity.

  • Hi, it's only for mac?
  • Hello @speedacidrain,

    Millumin is Mac only, so yes, the plugin for After Effects also.

    Best. Philippe
  • Philippe,
    Hello--is this also available to windows?
    Thank you.
  • Hello @powfag,

    The answer to this question is just before your message.

  • Hello @ilyaorlov,

    No, this plugin is for Millumin only.

  • Hi, I'm an After Effects user, and ran across your software on AEscripts. I just finished a projection mapped show done entirely in AE, and I was excited to find a new tool to make projection mapping easier.  I downloaded your sample files, and I am a little confused at what extra utility is gained here over using just After Effects for a single projector pre-rendered projection mapped movie.  I can do the slicing and perspective correction directly in AE using a precomp and ccPowerPin.

    It looks like nice software, and I can see how some of the interactive features and multi-projector edge blending would be useful.  Does it have a free player to display your projects, or do you need to install a full version of the software on a display machine?  Maybe you could make a video targeted towards AE users functionality that we can't get using AE?


  • Hello @mwoods,

    Of course, you could do everything with After Effects, but you would have to do all the mapping with ccPowerPin (probably not the best tool for videomapping) and render the whole comp. What if your projector moves a bit ? You would have to render everything again. Big difference with Millumin that can compose in real-time.

    Anyway, everybody has its own workflow, but in most situations, a specialized videomapping tool is needed. Think about theater, opera, museums, events involving human beings or with sequences, ...

    To reply to your second question : no, there is no such free player. Sorry.

    Best. Philippe
  • Hi Philippe,
    I have AE CC on my mac and I have the trial version of Millumin. I have downloaded the plug in for AE and I did copy the plugin to the Plug-in folder of AE , and I went through Readme text but still I can not see the AE in the input part of the Millumin. Can you help me with that? Thanks
  • Hello @gelar,

    You have to create a composition, so After Effects would render a first frame for Millumin (needed for the detection).
    Also, be sure you followed all the instructions in the video.

    Best. Philippe
  • Thanks Philippe, it worked.

     I have another question. Iv found this tutorial for madmapper
    is it possible to use millumin instead of madmapper in this way that they have explained to map the building (photo-base)? 
  • Hello @gelar,

    Yes, it's possible : mapping and warping work the same in Millumin.

    Best. Philippe
