videoprojectiontools, the powerful and intuitive Max/MSP/Jitter-developed Mac and Windows tools for projection mapping, just got a nice update. The new version has OpenSoundControl (OSC) support – and yes, despite the “Sound” in the acronym, it’s really more like Open … Control. Max is not required to use the patches; they’re standalone.

Yet again we see some advantages of using OSC:

The implementation so far for OSC includes preset and cuelist access, and layer fades,pos x and y, scale x and y, and videotracks selection from the individual sources.
With OSC you can now sync several computers and trigger presets from a OSC-able application (which can run as a background application).

Head to the site for downloads, tutorials, and documentation to get you started.

Video projection tools

  • I have made a new manual for the Videoprojectiontool, documenting the latest improvements including cornerpin keystoning and OSC support. There is also a slightly modified version of the application, v3.1c, with some bug fixes and increased OSC support.

  • I am happy to announce the new version of VPT for osX and Windows xp/vista with lots of new features:

    16 layers (previously 8 )
    2 live sources (previously 1)
    8 A-B mixers (previously 0)
    greatly improved MIDI and OSC capabilities
    enhanced interface
    monitor preview for 2ndmonitor (single screen, matrox 2x or 3x),live camera.
    lot´s of bug ?xes and more ef?cient code.

    And as always, it is free.

    The sourcecode is also included, (GPL 3 license)
