    Some suggestions for.... V3?

    by Akira » Sun Jun 12, 2005 4:06 am

    Hey guys,

    What a top update this is... It runs much smoother on my G3, seems you have been doing a lot of work on the optimization, and the new features rock.

    I've got a small suggestion that has to do with movie loop settin (in/out points)...

    would be good that the MIDI functionality for the Out marker would be relative to the in marker. This would make movie cue looping much more precise (without the need of having to use high res MIDI)

    Also would be good to move the loop section to anywhere in the clip, that means that I could have set some sort of loop inside a media and then maintain this timing but cut another section of the media. This should be MIDI-assignable too, of course.

    Anyway that's all from me now ;) cheers and thanks!

    The body is not yet cold but I will add to the pile.

    I would love the ability to import and export layer sets. I have a handful of Mod8 files and would love to be able to take certain comps, save them out, and import them into a new or existing file.



    Also, track mattes. Nmmmmm, track mattes.

    It should be possible to create a module to "save" your settings in a layer and name it to reuse it after... I'm planning on creating one like that if possible

    Yes it's pretty easy :-)
    -You can use this simple code to put all settings from a layer to a dictionnary.

    #SNAPSHOT of my source layer
    preset = {}
    for key in modul8.getValue('direct_keywords',0) :
    if key[:10] == 'ctrl_layer' :
    preset[key] = modul8.getValue(key,0)

    -And this code for apply the dictionnary settings to a layer :

    #change the layer parameters
    for key, value in preset.items() :
    if modul8.getValue (key,0) != value : #chage only if the target is different (faster)
    modul8.setValue (key,value,0)

    I use It for the new 'EQUALIZER' module ...
    Sorry the 'TAB' doesn't into the forum :-( also check the module for the true code... and good luck...

    the in/out bar adds a lot! ;)

    i might suggest a marker on the bar, to show the current "play head position"

    you could combine the knobs with the bar, and make them two sliding
    arrows above it.

    Being able to record sound with video would help make Modul8 more than just a live performance tool!!

    found the right topic page for this:
    absolutely a stunning piece of software..
    i think could be useful more softness -and/or a decimal dynamic meter- in the first sector (slow) of speed controls (find a good slow motion of things it's hard in less than one millimiter) and would be nice too a "Reset All" button (better if reset to last saved).
    Thanks.

    ... maybe in v3 some random point function on the particle engine...
    :shock: .. kinda like trapcode's particular plugin..
    the way i'm doing this now is to have multiple layers of the same with an
    time offset..

    i'm working now on this very nice project(vj set) using modul8 .. where i have
    compositions that are traveling from left to right (in an endless loop) ..
    a sky..some buildings..more buildings in front .. characters .. great app..
    u can fake depth and so on .. only this particle thing is stoping that small
    detail to make it perfect...
    the fake 3d camera module is a nice addon ..
    the app made my imagination go wild .. i think the solution since i have a
    V4 is to buy another powerbook and go crazy .. can i sync 2 pb via midi ? ..

    also ..* i'm a novice in this big world of 010101* .. any tips for some
    smart sync with ableton live ?

    :arrow: respect to the swissminds !! i will come in january at the festival.

    Depends.
    Movie playback time wont be synced with two machines (ie you wont get two machines running differnt loops for exact equal times, unless you can fake it by syncing the BPM modul to the same MIDI trigger for both mahcines...hmmm) but you surely can affect two machines at the same time with MIDI commands. Iv've done this controlling two machiens with one Edirol PCR30.

    With Ableton, I do it thorugh the use of two computers, one for Ableton and one for modul8

    Let me know how it works for you ;) MIDI latencies aside, I think it should work pretty well!

    Yes! I use mostly long clips and this would help immensely.

    Cheers,

    (That anon. was me, I forgot to log in.)

    Yes, it would make it easier to find the perfect loop points...
