MadMapper Demo has some limitations:
The following features are disabled on the Demo Version:
MadMapper Standard license is a single user based license.
We offer an additional machine authorization as a spare license in case of a problem during your performance or if you prepare your work on a computer and use another one for your performance.
The second license is not meant to be shared with someone else (leasing or reselling madmapper without permission is strictly prohibited)
Ensure that you are connected to the Internet to activate your license. Also ensure that your license is compatible with the version of MadMapper you downloaded on the MadMapper your space page. It’s possible that you need to purchase an upgrade to run the latest version of MadMapper if you bought MadMapper before January 2017.
About the Remote Reset :
With MadMapper 1.5.1 and above, You need to create Video output surfaces given the number of outputs of your video card(s). This is why your output Screen appears “black” whereas you can see an image on the preview output window.
Here’s how to proceed to enable video outputs:
With MadMapper you can use a camera as a source in put.
You can use any FireWire / Usb camera for live feeds, as long as it is supported by QuickTime. We can’t recommend any specific one as we have not tested all firewire cameras on the market.
For the Spatial Scanner you can use the FireWire camera as well, but the quality of the scan will be very poor so it is best to use the Canon EOS DSLR cameras.
In order to use the Spacial Scanner function of MadMapper, you’ll need either a QuickTime compatible Firewire camera (with a video digitizer) or Canon camera models that are compatible with the Canon EDSDK version 3.6
You can find the list of supported cameras by Canon EDSDK on this page:
You may also use Firewire based video camera recorder however we do not recommend this as the image quality provided may produce a low quality scan.
We highly recommend that you try the demo of MadMapper to make sure that your hardware is compatible prior to purchasing the software.
Unfortunately the GoPro camera is not a FireWire QT camera, only QuickTime compliant cameras ( with a QuickTime video digitizer) and Canon EOS framework based cameras can be used for the special scanning feature.
In MadMapper 1.7.3 and previous versions
ArtNet universe addresses have two parts, a Subnet value which is the lower 4 bits (0-15) and a ‘universe’ value which is the upper 4 bits (0-15) , which means you have up to 16×16. Use the Subnet and Universe to Compose the universe ID.
For instance universe 1 will be noted as 0:1 in artnet, 15 as 0:15, 16 as 1:0, 17 as 0:2 etc.
The Decimal to ArtNet Path port table page will help you to setup the Arnet universe
The Enttec Mk2 DMX controller is a USB device and MadMapper supports only one universe per USB port. If you need to support multiple universes, use an Artnet DMX controller.
Yes, starting with version 3.1, MadMapper is able to export recorded DMX sequences to the miniMAD.
Please check out video tutorials to see how to record DMX sequences.
