I think that's a great answer! Thank you! Just to re-state and make sure I understand...I've included a screen shot to make things a little clearer...
The final project is a "wall" of animated elements (in the screenshot, the large b/w animation) with a number of smaller quads that will contain portrait images (the smaller square color images). This piece would be at a festival, and there would be an on-site photo booth that would send the photos to a folder, which would then in turn populate the photo booth images in these quads. So, people would be encouraged to stick around, watch the piece change and wait for their image to pop up. Ideally, there would be two people operating the piece: one to run the camera, and another to work MadMapper.
So, if I read you correctly, if the projector resolution was 1920 x 1080, I'd want to shoot at least at 1080 x 1080 to ensure good image quality, even if they are downsampled. Does downsampling larger images take a lot of processing power, i.e. do I make any gains by trying to keep the image sizes as small as possible or does it not matter?
Also, if I can sneak another question in here...I have noticed that new images added to image folders do not populate if they are already running in MM. Would live updates to folder content require a Syphon-based object or am I missing something?
Thanks so much for your help!
