Is there any way Screen Sharing could be used as a source? It would make mixing between two Modul8 licensed computers really simple. Regardless of lag and other stuff, just having a second laptop as an external source using a cat5/6 cable alone and using the built in screen share software in mac would make it a million ties easier than setting up a Matrox capture device, a firewire capture box, a firewire screen capture hack, setting up VLC, or getting a wireless capture... I mean, it seems so plug and play-ish. Also, the Screen sharing app does an awesome job at keeping the quality adaptive... I can play movies sent in 1920x1200 pretty sharp, and artifacting is barely noticeable depending on what it is you are trying to achieve. Once it has a signal running and a steady connection, it runs smooth and lags just as much as a Matrox Mxo2 mini.
Has this been done before? Can it be done with Syphon? Am I crawling up the wrong tree? I could be terribly wrong and be going off on something that can't be done because of passwords and stuff in order to get a screen share signal... But it could make my job so terribly terribly easy.
Thanks, Much love
