I’m not sure if we are re-inventimg the wheel. Currently in our DMX community a discussion on Laser simulator is held, i.e. to simulate a DMX controlled laser device with a beamer. At least in small rooms with fog you can get impressive results.
Because I couldn’t detect a corresponding patch (except a bezier patch) I tried to implement a tool by my own as v4 beginner. For trying you need an ArtNet sender. The description of DMX channel functions is on right hand side of the patch.
Any hints? Is there already a tool or a reusable patch?
@ henny: thanks for this hot tip. It was possible to make a vvvv-clone of that nice tool within one hour - also for me as absolute beginner in vvvv! The clone even contains some goodies :)
This demonstrates the great capabilities and efficiency of vvvv.
Remark: I omited the ArtNet interface, but this is given in the patch above.
@karistouf: Of course, you have different behaviour for laser and beamer. But the laser has only one point, the beamer has lots of points - thus you can reach great effects nevertheless with the beamer. Try it with my LaserSimClone :)
hi franck ! this is a funny patch and yes this is beamer!
dont know if you would reach the laser effect. we need a frequency of flickering very high …
completely agree with you that video is a lighting tool and your beamer is beautifull ;-)
what is interresting is you artnet node inside the first patch.
its meeting my strong preocuppation of cues stacks for vvvv.
i mean using dmx controllers and their memories system to pilot vvvv without accidents of patches ( dmxC or schwz, or whatelse) … thruth preset sending and transitition over dmx…
finally dmx is a good way to remote and stock cues…
