I´m planning a dance performance that uses a top camera like a live input to madmapper and been mapped and projected in screen at the same time. I´ll use a good mac pro (not the new trashcan, too expensive for that
) and I have 2 main doubts, maybe someone can help:
- I need a good image, since this top capture will be zoomed and the scene itself is full of colors and lots of movement. I just can have minimal (or none I hope) lag cause it´s a coreography. My first camera choice was an Canon EX1 or EX3 but it looks like a very expensive option. Had anyone use a good HD camera with an HD SDI output cheaper (but trustable) than that?
- I was looking for a good capture device to bypass the signal to madmapper. This external ultrastudio - not the 4K, the express model - looks very good (http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/product ... olt/design
), but some people believe that an internal PCI device probably will have less lag than an external device. Anyone has experience about that?
Thanks in advance!
