    Sorry for Confusion

    I thought Boris was not around anymore. My comment was surprise to notice Boris was commenting. I had assumed some Bank or Pharmacutical company had hired him to lead their Python scripting division.

    You guys make me happy and your software is the best!

    Beta report

    by gmint » Mon Sep 10, 2007 12:05 am

    OK, so I know this isn't too much of a report, but here it is anyway:

    I'm primarily a DJ. I use M8 maybe 6 times a year to VJ, but I use it much more to run a LCD sign on my DJ system. So, basically I just have like 2-3 clips that loop all night long which I change up once in a while. I leave M8 running in the background with Traktor running in the foreground (for me to DJ on). Anyway, I ran it last night for roughly 5 hours and it performed fine. No apparent memory leaks or anything like that. Like I said, I know it's not much, but I just thought I would put in my report.

    first impression: 2.5.5 Beta

    by Emendi » Mon Sep 10, 2007 8:10 pm

    OK.
    i tested the new beta version last night and here is my first impression:

    Very stable, working smooth and the new features are great.

    The new module - "set media by name (layer)" - is great for my opinion.

    preserve alpha rocks! :)

    the color picker is a great add, now it's very easy to control the color section by mouse.

    i cant see where the other new module come handy for me (the "auto pilot" modul - cant remember the real name right now) maybe for D J's or something like this...

    i haven't noticed any major bugs or problems but I'll keep updating as soon as i found one...

    thats it for now.

    I had some problems with modul ROBOT VJ. when active RUN is left in way blur without any possibility of restoring.
    also gives the following error:
    Runtime erro in "ROBOT_VJ_V28 testing" (periodicalEvent) at line 146

    if filterDict = {}:


    in order to restore everything I have to reinitiate Modul8 and to open a new project.is very inestable.

    set media by name logical record,color picker, works well.
    the other addons i need to testing more.

    ROBOT VJ is made only for testing Modul8 not really for using it on production.
    You can found a file log on your home use directory you can send it to me at the support with a small report.
    Thanks,
    Boris.

    logical record + mask(global) module issues

    by pablosanz » Mon Sep 24, 2007 1:52 pm

    hi

    I´m working with the new beta of modul8 and I have a feW technical problems... logical record just doesn´t work (I´ve posted here about that : http://www.garagecube.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1813 ) ... and the Mask(Global) module has an strange behaviour... for instance, it doesn´t change always the clip when I click on them, and sometimes the mask remains in the output when I turn of the "Show in output" button and even when the module is deactivated....

    is this happening to any of you aswell?

    looking forward to hear comments about this... thanks!

    Hi guys,
    Last night I tried the new 2.5.5 beta and it crashed 2 times in a 4 hour gig (I tried the matrox triplehead2go digital).
    In the 1st crash modul8 stopped completely as well as the full screen image. In the 2nd “crash” I had a preview image in my laptop but no output image in beamers. As a note, I just used PNG files (1024x768).

    Now, 2 wishes for the next modul8 version (in a module or in the modul8 interface):
    1st- it would be nice if one could apply in the same layer at the same time 2 or 3 transformers (matrix, patch, particles or others future transformers).
    2nd- audio input by frequencies.

    Think about that.

    all the best,

    olim.

    Hi Boris,

    I have a macbook pro core 2 duo with 2.33ghz and 2gb ram.
    I was using PNG files (up to 12KB) in 4 or 5 layers at same time. All files were reacting to the sound input (Auto Move + Auto Scale).
    I had applied for each layer a different Transformer, filter, scale and rotation.

    Hope this help.
    thanks.
