Jumped into using this plug-in for a job. Very efficient once getting the hand of the workflow. Great for previz. I don't have to render a clip several times over to see the results. Nice work.November 2013

Checking out Milliplug. Interface is very clear and I am looking forward to integrating it into a forthcoming show I am working on.
Unfortunately for the moment I am not able to trigger a light using a cue point.
- The ENTTEC USB PRO is working because I can run the test from Milliplug- I do notice that in the settings panel of Milliplug there is no status for the device, just a brief text explanation- There is a problem that when running the test in Milliplug that there is no simple way of turning off the lights within the software. I end up needing to restart the computer or probably do something else fancy to shut the lights off
I understand that the software is new and I also have to add that my knowledge of DMX is still within the realm of the theoretical, so bare with me if I am missing something.
Perhaps the problem is because I am using the 64 bit version of the FTDI driver?
Any feedback will be extremely welcome.July 2013
When Vezer is out it will be possible to keyframe points using MIDI or OSC. It's release is imminent.July 2013
Tested this within my limited capacity, and right away there are two problems that prevent this from working:
- Konkreet performers nodes have a limited value range, 0.0 to 1.0. so I can map the center of the node to move the layer but because of this limitation it just.... moves..... a..... little.... teeny..... bit. This could probably be aided by running the message through OSCulator and somehow adding a multiplier
- With the corner points, the millumin keywords for them combine both x and y together, and Konkreet keeps these two values separate for its nodes
So my little dream has now burst into tiny pieces.
I guess it's time I start to learn how to become a programmer so I can make my dreams come true... that or get into permaculture. :-pJuly 2013
I figured I could customize the heck out of it, but I don't anticipate Rob making such changes for something as specific as this. I have access to Lemur for iPad and may end up recreating a template with that. But first it's time to have 'fun' with Konkreet.July 2013
Thanks for the response.
I understand about the mesh points. That makes sense given the UI limitations of TouchOSC.
I actually find the controls for this quite awkward. After lifting the finger off of the surface of the iPad the point will sometimes jump erratically. Of course it is OK to be able to get rough positioning down and then fine tune with the incremental buttons, but even that is kind of awkward.
This is from experience working in the field on a project.
I will attempt to test out using Konkreet performer as I find that moving the points is smoother and the problem of the 'jumping' that I have outlined above is somehow not a problem. Konkreet performer aslo has interpolating between different 'shapes' via presets, although this might be kind of a gimmick. Still intriguing to try it out.July 2013
