Rutt-Etra FOR ISADORA 3

Please Donate if You Use This Plugin!   This emulation of the legendary Rutt/Etra Video hardware video synthesizer would not exist except for the creativity of Bill Etra, who passed away in 2016.  He was survived by his partner Roz who is disabled, lives on fixed income, has no surviving family to help her. (Learn more about Bill and his partner Roz's story  here.) But, right now, you can make a difference in Roz's life by making a donation to help support her via this PayPal link maintained by the plugin's creator Vade. Please contribute to the memory of a true pioneer.   >>> Click to Donate <<<   About Rutt-Etra   The v002 Rutt-Etra plugin by Vade is an emulation of the legendary Rutt/Etra Video hardware video synthesizer created by Bill Etra and Steve Rutt. It modulates the scanlines or points that make up an video stream based on the brightness of the source or of another video stream. The results are beautifullly complex as was the original Rutt Etra. Here's an example of an eye modulated by the Rutt Etra plugin.     There are quite a few inputs on this plugin, and you should make sure to experiment with them all. But the most important when you're beginning are as follows:   • draw-mode: controls the method used to draw the modulated image. • z-extrude: the distanec that the scanlines or points that make up the the original will be modulated based on the brightness of the displace image. (If no video stream is coneccted to the displace input, then the source image is used to displace itself) • z-translate:  How the image is translated towards or away from the 3D camera along the z-axis. The  z-translate should generally be negative; otherwise you may not see the image. If you don't see an image, the first thing to try is to make the z-translate more negative. • wire frame size: The thickness of the scanlines or points used to render the final image.   Installing   • This is a 64-bit plugin for Isadora 3 only.

Features: - Full access to every knob, slider, and set of buttons. - 2 way communication allows the use of the built-in LED button lighting. Setup: - Place the user actor in your Isadora scene. - Set the 'port IN' and 'port OUT' inputs of the user actor to the Midi ports you wish to use. - Setup Isadora to use the same ports. Open Midi Setup and set the corresponding I/O port numbers to interface the Korg nanoKontrol2

MidiLearn

The midiLearn user actor locks to the first midi signal coming in and shows on the output side what type (control, note on/off) was triggered. In January 2010 Graham Thorne (aka Skulpture) started with the first MidiLearn actor that simply took the first note ON and locked it to that note. This encouraged me and I expanded its features with a reset function, control detection, switching between note ON and OFF etc. We both hope you have fun with it.

Grapher [PUBLIC BETA]

This plugin is in public beta.   Do not use this plugin in a mission critical situation until the public beta tag is removed!   Grapher displays one or more numeric values on a moving graph for easy visualization. This plugin might be most useful to teachers who are helping others to learn about Isadora. Grapher was created by Isadora's creator Mark Coniglio specifically for his workshop "What Do We Do With the Data?" at the Isadora Werkstatt 2019. If you anything is unclear about these instructions, or if you have an problems using this actor, please let us know by making a post in the forum. One of our team, or one of the members of our awesome community, will be there to help.   Instructions: Remember, you can see helpful instructions for any actor by mousing over the actor's inputs or outputs and seeing what appears in the Help View at the bottom right of the main Isadora window. But here is a quick summary of Grapher's inputs and what they do.   Try Out the Grapher Actor Let's start with a simple example. 1) Connect a numeric input to 'value 1' input – you could use the output of a Mouse Watcher or a Wave Generator actor to give this actor a try. 2) Connect the 'video out' to a projector and Show Stages to see the graphed output. You'll see that the value received at 'value 1' is being drawn on to the graph, and that the graph slides to the right as time passes, as you might see on a heart monitor or chart recorder.   Set the Vertical Range: The vertical range for the graph is set by the 'range min' and 'range max' inputs, which default to -100 and +100. If you're using the Mouse Watcher, you'd want to set 'range min' to 0 so that Grapher's range matches the range of the Mouse Watcher. If the value you are receiving is small (e.g., -0.1 to +0.1) then you'd want to use those values for 'range min' and 'range max' so that the representation of the signal fills the entire graph vertically.   Set the Time Scale: The amount of time represented by the entire width of the graph is set by the 'time scale input, which is given in seconds. If you want to see the last 20 seconds of data in the output, set this input to 20.   Working with Multiple Values: If you want to graph multiple values: 1) Set the 'values' input to the number of values you require. 2) Additional 'value' inputs to which you can connect other values will appear below 'value 1' 3) You will see a line for each 'value' input drawn in graph. To see this in action, set 'values' to 2 and connect the two outputs of a Mouse Watcher to the 'value 1' and 'value 2' inputs. Usually, when you are graphing multiple values, you'll want to set the 'color min' and 'color max' inputs to two different colors so each line in the graph will be a different color. For the greatest variation, pure red and pure blue are a good choice for these inputs. If you do this, the first line in the graph will be red, the last line will be blue, and the lines in between will show equally spaced colors between 'min color' and 'max color'.   Other Parameters: The 'line size' controls the size of the lines drawn in the graph, while the 'grid lines' and 'grid size' inputs allow you to draw equally spaced divisions on the horizontal axis. The 'width' and 'height' inputs determine the resolution of the output image, which is usually sent to a Projector actor but can be passed to any Isadora actor that accepts video input. You can enter any values you like here to control the aspect ratio and resolution of the output graph. We've found the default 1280 x 720 work quite well.

This encouraged me and I expanded its features with a reset function, control detection, switching between note ON and OFF etc. We both hope you have fun with it.

DX – morph Color

A simple but fun User Actor that RGB fades the output color into the input color. It features a switch for excluding the alpha value from the fade in cases where you want a consistent opacity. Use the 'smoothing' input to adjust how quickly the RGB fade occurs. 0 = instant, 1= never (default 0.95)

DX – Live10

Live 10 offers a flat-dark Ableton 10 inspired UI. Actor links are made more high contrast when selected to help with complex patching.

DX – graphicPlacer-ZoomCalc

Very useful for outputting graphics at actual size by setting the Projectors zoom to match the size of the image in relation to the target stage. eg: place a small image on a large stage without it being scaled to match, and animate its position with the position inputs of the Projector. The image shows a 256 x 256 pixel image being placed on a 480 x 270 pixel stage. For pixel perfect scaling the zoom needs to be set to 94.8148

Rutt-Etra FOR ISADORA 3

Please Donate if You Use This Plugin!   This emulation of the legendary Rutt/Etra Video hardware video synthesizer would not exist except for the creativity of Bill Etra, who passed away in 2016.  He was survived by his partner Roz who is disabled, lives on fixed income, has no surviving family to help her. (Learn more about Bill and his partner Roz's story  here.) But, right now, you can make a difference in Roz's life by making a donation to help support her via this PayPal link maintained by the plugin's creator Vade. Please contribute to the memory of a true pioneer.   >>> Click to Donate <<<   About Rutt-Etra   The v002 Rutt-Etra plugin by Vade is an emulation of the legendary Rutt/Etra Video hardware video synthesizer created by Bill Etra and Steve Rutt. It modulates the scanlines or points that make up an video stream based on the brightness of the source or of another video stream. The results are beautifullly complex as was the original Rutt Etra. Here's an example of an eye modulated by the Rutt Etra plugin.     There are quite a few inputs on this plugin, and you should make sure to experiment with them all. But the most important when you're beginning are as follows:   • draw-mode: controls the method used to draw the modulated image. • z-extrude: the distanec that the scanlines or points that make up the the original will be modulated based on the brightness of the displace image. (If no video stream is coneccted to the displace input, then the source image is used to displace itself) • z-translate:  How the image is translated towards or away from the 3D camera along the z-axis. The  z-translate should generally be negative; otherwise you may not see the image. If you don't see an image, the first thing to try is to make the z-translate more negative. • wire frame size: The thickness of the scanlines or points used to render the final image.   Installing   • This is a 64-bit plugin for Isadora 3 only. You can get the Isadora 2 version by clicking here. • Unzip the download and open the folder for your platform (i.e., Macintosh or Windows) • Choose Help > Open Plugin Folder > TroikaTronix Actor Plugins to open the external plugins folder on your computer. • Drag the plugin to the TroikaTronix Actor Plugins folder opened above • Restart Isadora 3 The source code for this plugin can be found on GitHub.

MidiLearn

The midiLearn user actor locks to the first midi signal coming in and shows on the output side what type (control, note on/off) was triggered. In January 2010 Graham Thorne (aka Skulpture) started with the first MidiLearn actor that simply took the first note ON and locked it to that note. This encouraged me and I expanded its features with a reset function, control detection, switching between note ON and OFF etc. We both hope you have fun with it.
