Update from Mr Lublin

Pro Tip: Put that composition in your VDMX assets folder under ‘plugins’ and add it to your project as a plugin instead of a layer.


Here is a new way to get multiple individual layers from VDMX to MadMapper.

You can grab demos of both pieces of software here.  http://vidvox.net/  http://www.madmapper.com/

This uses a custom qcfx i have created that allows for up to 9 layers to be sent to MadMapper.

First you will need to download the vdmx_multi_to_madmapper.qtz from the downloads page

Note there is 2 versions to download a standard 4:3 version and 16:9 version.

First click in the help menu and select Open Assets Folder In Finder

Navigate to the qcSources folder and copy in the vdmx_multi_to_madmapper.qtz

Open VDMX and create 10 layers.

In the Layer 1 Source window click use source drop down menu and select QC Source>vdmx_multi_to_madmapper.qtz

Set the Main Output window resolution to a suitable size for your output.

You should now see a selection of drop down menus in the layer source window.

Now in the workspace inspector select Layers 2-10 and click the Hide button in the Layer Composition window for each layer.

Add your media to Layers 2-10.

Go back to the Layer 1 Source window and use the drop down menus to select your layer.

You should now have your 9 images positioned correctly in the main output window.

Add a Syphon Output plugin and select Main Output.

Open MadMapper select the VDMX Output and start making quads.

  1. this is really helpful, but I cant find the open assets folder, where i have to click the help menu to find this option? thank you

    • Because MadMapper can only receive a single Syphon feed at any one time. So you need to send all your content you want mapped in a single Syphon Feed.

      Hopefully future update will allows multiple feeds although this may increase the CPU/GPU overheads too much.
