I purchased an annual license of Madmapper, the Projection control Extension, and even got 1 mini-mad to test before purchasing more for the other projectors in our permanent installation.
I had high hopes for Madmapper and really went head first into making this powerful tool work. I’ve watched over 50 tutorial videos, read all the documentation provided, poured through the Garagecube / Madmapper forums, searched the web, but have not found the answer
Here is my issue:
We have a projection mapping show on a building with music. I want to trigger scene changes based on key parts and words of the music. I want to make sure the music and video are in perfect sync or you lose the magic.
I also want to use the scheduling feature of Madmapper so the show will play on schedule during evening hours in the month of December.
The only solution recommended in the forums is to use an external tool such as Vezér OR to create small video files with the music embedded and let the timing go by the length of the video clip. The video clip solution is suuuuper choppy and does not chain together to have a smooth playing of the music, so that is a bust, Vesér is complicated and I am not sure I will be able to take advantage of the madMapper scheduler so that is will reach out and also play and time my auto files.
I would love it if Madmapper just had a place to lay down a music track and allow me to place Scene triggers at any keyframes along the music path.
Since it does not do that, I am at a loss on how to play a projection mapping show in perfect sync with 3 songs and transition scenes at precise key words in the music.
Please tell me I am missing some obvious steps so I can keep my investments in Madmapper and keep using this awesome tool.
Your help is appreciated.
