    Best way to manage loops and background?

    by jdenommee » Thu Mar 21, 2019 4:50 pm

    Hello everyone!

    I'm new to madmapper and I would like two know what is the best way to manage multiple videos over the course of a show.
    I have a two projector setup with a single video split over theses projectors( one side left of the video and the other right). The image manipulation makes it very easy for me to install the projectors and screens. I have to play many video loops (around 30) over the course of 3 hours but I find it a little hard to toggle from one video to another.

    Has anyone an idea of how to do this easily? I'm on the Windows version. This is for a kids skating show. I joined a picture of the setup.
    I want to be able to go from (loop 1) to (loop stand-by) to (loop 2) etc.

    thanks

    JD

    Use scenes or cues. Check in MadMapper menu Help / Scenes & Cues documentation
    Or our video tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QS-tww2YEM

    Hi,

    I just find the cues and scene to be a bit counter-intuitive. If I could, I would use a Syphon base player but unfortunately, I'm on PC.

    Scenes and Cues is not the simplest feature in MadMapper but when you understood it, it solves a lot of situations !

    you don't have Syphon on pc indeed, but instead you have Spout
    If you really want to try out a player

    still, like matt said scenes and cues is the best option for your project and a really great tool once you master it!
