I’m planning to do a videomapping-show with live music the end of august.
I’m quite new to the live rendering thing but I’m already in love with the idea.
Now I would like to design a tool/network that looks like the image I added.
So the idea would be to have some base-ops (banana-tops in the image to make it more clear) with inside of them a network that creates live visuals. (so they would have a movie file-out)
Those ops I would send to some kind of selecting tool (which could be a switch-comp I guess?)
after this, the selecting tool would send the images to Resolume trough a syphon-out.
Now my questions are:
- Is this a doable idea, considering I have a laptop that is quite powerful but still, there would be 3 images being rendered + Resolume would be working in the same time?
(I work mostly with tops, which is good for rendertime)
- If this is not doable, I could have 1 syphon out, but ofcourse I’d prefer 3.
- Also, I’d like to know how I could make the base-op render only when it’s selected? In the Touchdesigner interface there is a cross button on the bases, which turns them off. Is this a button I could possibly connect to another op? The button is shown in the second image.
- If this would be possible and would take less power of my computer, do you think I could use my girlfriend’s laptop to render something too and send this over a VPN to my computer?
Thanks a lot in advance!
