    Hello @Digimoto,

    Yes, Millumin is a turnkey application : it can work alone, or you can mix it with other softwares through Syphon.
    Did you try the free trial-version (no limitation during 30 days) ?

    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.

    Hello @CitizenCaine,

    Thank you the idea.
    However, the very first step would be to provide a version that supports all the Kinect correctly (including the 1473 model). Then we could study your idea.

    In the meantime, you could use Synapse : there are some tutorials on their website, especially how to share the Kinect result via Syphon (for this, yes you will need Quartz Composer).

    Hello @fob67cry,

    Also, please note that you could use "mapping" keyframes in compositions, or use the mini-application MappingPresets.

    Hello @fob67cry,

    Sorry for now, it is not possible.
    But feel free to create an idea on Uservoice : it helps sus to keep track of user requests, and see their popularity.

    Also, you could write a small script to handle this : please have a look to the developer-kit, where there are nice examples.

    Hello Lyno_leum,

    Thank you.
    To copy and paste just the mapping properties (position, scale, mapping, warping), click on the menubar on "Edit" then "Copy Mapping only". You got similar options for masks and effects.
    You can also copy and paste one or many layers (select multiple layer by maintaining SHIFT).

    "Copy layers" (that target a layer) is a different concept, but very useful for mapping. I suggest you to watch this tutorial (there are some more to learn Millumin).

    Hello @Akinetic,

    I'm sorry but I'm not sure to understand your problem properly ... You seems to describe 2 different problem.

    First one : Epiphan or AJA card not recognized as online.
    It's probably a driver issue, or maybe another application is already using the cards.
    Also, I sent you via email, a Millumin version that fixes a problem with Epiphan card (multiple card support, to be release in the next update).

    Second problem : input from Keynotes is not smooth (or got latency).
    This problem should be the same with other application on your Mac. With what application did you test ? Quicktime ?

    Hello @thyeks,

    As written in the first message : "Only Kinect 1414 is currently supported. Kinect for Windows and Kinect 1473 are not."

    Hello @tama,

    MilluPlug saves the configuration only if Millumin is activated on your computer. The configuration is saved in OSX Preferences : be sure your Mac does not clean up Preferences at startup.

    Keep in mind that MilluPlug is an application from the labs : it is a simple and
    easy-to-use application, but not always suitable for complex setup. If you have a lot of plugs (more than 30), the application may take a few seconds to start up. Why not trying the developer-kit
    (look at the nice examples) to built a short and efficient script to
    control Millumin via MIDI ?
    We are working on an integration of MilluPlug in Millumin, but I cannot give you a date. Sorry.

    Thank you for let us know this problem.
    It will be fixed in the next update.

    Hello @vincent,

    For technical reasons, the compositions got premultiplied transparency in the dashboard : in brief, the transparent zones of a composition, appear more transparent in the dashboard.
    This is something hard to change, as it implies to change the core render-engine, but we should provide a fix in the next months. Thank you for your patience.

    Hello @fusion,

    If you think it's a bug, please send us your QTZ file on contact@millumin.com
    The parameters of a Quartz Effects should not be reset, even after changing the current media (the blue cell).

    MilluPlug is an application from the labs : it is a simple and easy-to-use application, but not always suitable for complex setup. I guess you should use the developer-kit (look at the nice examples) to built a short and efficient script to control Millumin via MIDI. Trust me, you will save a lot of time.
    To finish, MilluPlug will be included in Millumin, but I cannot give you a release date for now.

    Hello @fusion,

    This is the expected behavior : every QTZ file in a media-cell has its own parameters.
    I guess you rather want to create an effects. Two solutions
    Create a Quartz effect (there is already a Shift-RGB effect, similar to what you wanna achieve)

    Use the standard "Color adjustement" effect, and assign MIDI control via MilluPlug

    Hello @sangmi12,

    Yes, you can move an activation to another : simply deactivate a computer, and activate another one. More info on this post.
    If you change your drive, please deactivate Millumin before.

    Hello @tomaever,

    The "Animation plug" does not send a message on every frame, but every 1/60 second, so every 16ms.
    I'm sorry but MIDI BPM is not planned for MilluPlug, but you could create an idea on Uservoice : it helps us to keep track of user requests, and see their popularity.
    However, you could create your own mini-application : please download the developer-kit, there is a lot of example in different technologies.

    Hello @rolandino,

    This is not a bug : Millumin automatically stops the Blackmagic device when not used. So as soon as you go to the next column, Millumin stops then restarts the Blackmagic device. So the short black frame.

    Indeed, a solution consists in having a Blackmagic instance in an hidden layer.
    However we have planned to add an option "keep it hot" for the Blackmagic devices : you can vote for this idea.

    Hello @vincent,

    Yes, it's the same for the effects.
    On the short term, no improvement in this direction is planned. On the long term, we might consider this, but I cannot guaratee it will come for sure.

    Hello @vincent,

    I'm sorry, but you cannot control a layer that is inside an embed-composition (a composition in the dashboard, or a composition in another composition).
    In brief : only the layers displayed in the list, can be accessed via OSC.

    Hello @PPHHMM,

    You can display a preview, even if the layer is hidden : open the "Time Panel" on the right of the dashboard, then select "Live Thumbnail".
    You can also use an external app such as BlackSyphon.

    Hello @CitizenCaine,

    An effect containing a blur can be very ressource-consuming. I guess this is the reason why your computer is getting slow. For the rendering, Millumin and Quartz Composer use the same libraries.
    Also, the crop in Millumin is always rendered last, so that's why it's not working in your case : you should include your crop directly in your Quartz composition.

    Hello @olgv and @CitizenCaine,

    You can simply adjust the "speed" to strech the movie. However, yes, this is not like Twixtor that reconstructs frames.

    Hello @CitizenCaine,

    Millumin already uses the SDK from Blackmagic : you should see an Epiphan icon in the library when connecting your device. If not, please contact us on contact@millumin.com

    Hello @stef31270,

    I tried 2 Zotac on a MacBookPro Retina and it works. The resolution was 2x 3840x1080, as this is the only resolution supported by the Zotac (at least officialy, maybe this can be tweaked by SwitchResX).

    Hello @CitizenCaine,

    Thank you very much for the comparison. Very interesting.
    By the way your "recognition problems between the connected DeckLink-, Epiphan-, UltraStudio- and AJA IO XT cards" could come from a conflict between Blackmagic and AJA cards.
    In the AJA installer, you should have been prompted about such a conflict. However, I don't know exactly where this conflict occurs. We're working on AJA native integration in Millumin, I hope it would solve this conflict.

    Hello @Batchku,

    This solution should work with such streaming server (as they can grab a camera, even a fake one as the iGlasses one).
    For the rest, I'm sorry, I don't know more.

    Hello @sangmi12,

    This is the behavior of Millumin : when reaching the end of the board (last column), it goes back to the beginning (first column).
    I guess you need to remove all your empty columns (starting from column-8). To do so, click in the menubar on "Board" then "Remove empty columns".

    Hello @Batchku,

    A software solution could be to use iGlasses :
    - use "Syphon Out" with Millumin
    - grab this Syphon server as the input of iGlasses


    - grab the "iGlasses" source (shown as a webcam) in your webcaster.

    Hello @jacquelin,

    (sorry but I've to reply in english, so other people can understand)
    On OSX, the path are case sensitive : "graphics" is not the same as "Graphics".
    Please check that you have the file "Auto-color.qtz" is located at "/Users/username/Library/Graphics/Millumin/Auto-color.qtz" (where 'username' is your user name).

    Hello @TheColourManager,

    Sorry, no documentation as Monomal for Millumin is an experimental project.
    The Monomal pages are somehow similar to the version for Modul8.
