  • You need to have something before each projector/display with at least two inputs and one output. For example, you could use a Blackmagic ATEM TV Studio feeding each projector/display. Connect the respective outputs of your Mac Pro’s to two of the …
  • Question about sync for @Millumin: If we are doing a widescreen show with projector output requirements which exceeds the available outputs on a single machine (like a single screen that is four 4K projectors blended), what is the recommended metho…
  • @Millumin That is a very, very interesting solution. Would have never gone down that path. Perhaps this approach should be described in the docs as it is very useful but obviously has very low "discoverability". For those reading, Philippe has creat…
  • @russildi You could use an EDID manager between the projectors and the triple head. It would appear to the TH2GO that there is always a display connected, even if the displays/projector are powered off. I think putting the manager between the TH2G…
  • Yes - there is no help file in the current version of Octopus and it isn't inherently obvious how to use. Here are some general tips:You can use Octopus on either the local machine or across a network. Make sure you know the IP of the machine(s) you…
  • @Millumin - Forgot to attach the file. Here it is.
  • @Millumin Similar to your attached project, but my main focus is on the relationship between the two side screens and the center screen. I've updated and attached your project to represent the pixel space in question and added a pair of screens flan…
  • @Millumin I have posted an idea on Uservoice which can be found here https://millumin.uservoice.com/forums/114535-millumin-s-ideas/suggestions/19547458-interpret-udp-commands-as-osc
  • @antoineM @Millumin Thank you for the information. We will investigate with Wireshark and compare the workflow of sending OSC over UDP to just doing straight OSC from Octopus to trigger the X20 and Millumin. I will say that it would be excellent if …
  • I suppose we could use additional canvases in very much the same way WO uses virtual displays. These canvases could be assigned to Syphon and re-ingested where needed onto the main, single canvas. The downside is that there is significant video dela…
  • @Millumin Yes, I am referring to stage tiers as described in that article. specifically: "Panning large images sideways on the main center area, or on the side screens, will make those images intrude on the adjacent display areas. That’s fine while …
  • I can second Octopus. This is a great tool for making advanced triggers for all types of scenarios involving Millumin as well as almost any other device. If you need to always sync them together you can setup Millumin "B" as a backup/sync to Millumi…
  • I think the issue here really arises when we are talking about projecting a rectangular video onto a trapezoidal mapping surface. Imagine that the video file is a bunch of circles - they aren't going to be circles anymore. I don't see how slice edit…
  • @antoineM The mapping approach is certainly one solution to the problem described by @Trigg. The issue I can envision here, in a corporate environment, is that applying media to a mapping surface does not allow to maintain aspect ratio. We would nee…
  • I am aware of the advanced layout usage. The issue is that there is no way to ensure accuracy when rotating a display. Much in the way that layers can be rotated, we need to be able to rotate an output while otherwise maintaining its dimensions/aspe…
  • Just tried this on a MacBook Pro and, quite wonderfully, Millumin is able to look at the head as eithe one big output or discrete outputs - great!
  • I'm also heavily interested in this option and would like to know if anyone has any data regarding total system latency from capture card to output? My thought on hardware would be a Mac Pro with dual FirePro D700, a PCIe thunderbolt expansion chass…
