i bough a Mac air mid 2011 , because of the relation power-size-prize , every day im more happy!
i never use a mac before, until octover 2011, well lion, its, nice … but we all miss vvvvv
solution: bootcam, partition, seven 64, vvvv, works like a charm, but i´m a little bit addict to lion, at least on this hardware, but i miss vvvv
a friend show me vmware fusion 4.0.2, vvvv on the virtual machines works excellent, but i have 128gb ssd, i don’t have space for lion, tools, bootcamp partition and also another 6gb for another virtual machine, but with vmware i can boot my partition that its already installed, so no extra espace needed, ( well 2gb for the “ram” of the virtual machine) and i was amaze how it works
i can have like another “space” or “desktop” with my vvvv working, render windows its not gray, and i do full screen on my second monitor and have vvvv working on full screen ( not at the same time, well yes, but the render node will be gray if you have it on unitiy mode and a render on each display )
you can work on lion and have ONLY the window of you vvvv patch working
i think this ( by far ) is the best option for a mac user to go into vvvv
my second question was " what about usb devices, midi controller, kinect? wiimote ? ", well, vmware let you chose on wich machine you want to “connect” your device, i was able to run kinect without any problem
wiimore can work with osculator, and send osc messages to windows, ot it can be connected with bluesoley taking the Bluetooth hardware into seven, and use the wiimote plugin
this open a new world of options, the network interface works, you can send osc messages from lion to mac, connect modul8, composer, and vvvv , all on the same machine, and when you need more power, just restart on bootcamp and thats it!
im uploading a video to show how it works i will post it here in a few minutes, mac users, processing users, modul8 users, please check this out!!!
in a few minutes i will upload the video with all the set up working
