I can confirm it. I have updated to OSX Mavericks two day ago and have used MIllumin for our new videomapping project. It works flawlessly as I am used to.
Millumin + Milluplug + Enttec USB Pro Mk2
As I wrote last week - I got my Enttec and I started to solve my "millimun&light" vision. ;) Idea is very simple - to create complete audiovisual show (projection, audio, lights, lasers, ...) and manage it from Millumin (with connections to other apps).
Short description HOW I am using Millumin till now:I am used to create project mainly for company events - so my type of using MIllumin is starting from simple "media manager" and growing to video mappings and interactive shows. It means 1-5 layers in dashboard, 3-20 columns in dashboard and sometime a composition (and output to 1-3 "projectors or LED screens"). Each column is dedicated to some part of the event (visitors are coming to event, starting show, animated backgrounds for PIP, intermezzo, ...). No VJing or similar types of use.
What I want to achieve:Ad lights which will work in sync with individual videos in my project. (I need to mention - I am TOTAL amateur in any lightning solution, so at first I do a bit research and I tried to learn about DMX protocol, lights, lighting consoles, software solutions etc. )
Based of your suggestion and your tutorials I made my first testing setup which covers my future needs. After my research I decided to don't manage lights directly from MIllumin/Milluplug but to use specialized app for DMX controlling and use Millupug to "remotely" control this app.
What I have used:MacBook Pro Retina 15Millimun 1.34MilluplugEnttec USB Pro Mk2Korg nanoPAD2QLC+ROBE ROBIN® 600 LEDWash (4x) ------Millumin - simple project with one composition (one layer with video) including named cue pointsMilluplug - three plugs to listen OSC messages from cue points and send OSC messages to QLC+ (I dint manage listening OSC messages directly between Millumin and QLC+, all cue point seems to QLC+ same ... no parameters with cue name - so just for this workaround I used Milluplug)QLC+ - I created 3 very simple light scenes with intelligent heads from ROBE (green light to one direction, red to other direction, yellow strobe to celling)KORG nanoPAD2 - just to easily manage MIllumin dashboard (MIDI mapping of columns) And thats it. :)July 2013
As you have recommend to me I have ordered Mk2 (from yesterday I have it in my hand) and I borrowed one intelligent head (Robe LedWash 600) for testing. Till now no luck with Milluplug but I can't find event some useful and cheap software for manage DMX light. I will write to you separate email with description what I want to solve with Millumin and DMX lights. :)
It looks really amazing!
Is it possible to use it with ENTTEC USB PRO Mk2? (I just want to decide which model to buy from ENTTEC website).
Just if you plan to use six Full HD beamers and you create 11 520 x 1080 stage and put on it six FULL HD videos (or something like this) you will not be able to make it without dropping frames (even on very powerful Mac)
If you are fine with lower resolution for output to each monitor you will be for sure fine. I will be testing my MacBook Retina with Tripple head DP + HDMI output and has 4 HD or maybe FULL HD output. I will let you know if I find some limitation.
Hi Philippe and Vincent.
I just bought new BMD - Ultrastudio Mini Recorder. It works fine with OSX and Millumin. :) I have tried three different inputs - iPad2 over HDMI (720p 60fps - works), Panasonic P2 over SDI (1080i 29,97fps - works) and Canon 550D over HDMI (no chance to get it works with BMD). Tomorrow I want try Panasonic GH2 hacked over HDMI - so I will let you know. (and in couple of days I will have GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition - so next try)
My configuration is MacBook 15 Retina, 255 SSD, 16GB RAM - so there is more solutions to get source into Millumin on Mac with Thunderbolt. And Mini Recorder is even very cheap. ;)
I try how is the performance - three played layers, rotated, scaled, masked and slightly warped with mesh - all containing one input from Panasonic P2 1080i. Performance is great.
P.S. Philippe, can you send me your mini-app, please? Just to compare with standard configuration.November 2012
Phillipe, have you try some of external Blackmagic card to put it as live layer in Millumin? Blackmagic has introduced new ultrastudio mini recorder and mini monitor and I would like to try it with Millumin in some future project. LukasOctober 2012

Great work! Setting of number of mesh parts is exectly what I was looking for.June 2012
Hi. I just have tested Matrox triplehead2go DP on my MacMini - which I have bought just for use with Millumin ;) unfortunately my MacMini is with Intel HD 3000 (Mac mini Dual-Core i5 2.3GHz/2GB/500GB/Intel HD3000/OS X Lion) and I am not able to play two 1024x768 videos flawlessly. :( of course neither three videos.
I setup matrox screen to 3072x768 and render out composition of three videos into one MOV output. Even this file is not played well.
Does anybody have macmini with HD3000 and some experience with more HD videos played simultaneous?
