Floating Tunnels by bonemap

Floating Tunnels by Bonemap is an Isadora 3 video user actor macro. It is a recursive pattern module, as the name suggests, it generates a representation of a floating tunnel. There are parameters for colour (hue range), sine and pulse frequency. It accepts video texture so a PNG example file is included that is optimal. It has a background colour parameter that can be on or off. A sample patch is included.

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)

Circular Path by bonemap

Bonemap's Circular Path is an Isadora 3 user actor that provides the X and Y (vertical and Horizontal) coordinates to describe a circular path. The parameters include Reverse, Radius and Rotation Frequency. There is also an example patch that demonstrates the user actor.

DX – DMX Universe – Enttec compatible

DX - DMX Universe - Enttec compatible, is the easiest way to output DMX data. This actor will work with an Enttec compatible usb serial output device. This User Actor support upto 512 DMX values (1 DMX universe). The included demo file is built around outputting to a simple 5 channel Par Can. It shows a few tips and tricks for working with DMX and the Matrix actors. I am happy to offer support via the forum.

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.

Rutt-Etra 32bit

Bill Etra passed away in 2016. He leaves behind long legacy of pioneering both video art and video tools, including the Rutt/Etra Video Synthesizer, which this plugin created by Vade emulates. Vade sends all donations he receives via the v002 Rutt Etra web page to Jim’s partner Roz. She lives on fixed income and has no surviving family to help her, so every donation made via Vade's page makes a big difference in someone’s life. (You can read more about Bill & Roz at Vade's page: http://v002.info/plugins/v002-rutt-etra/) Instructions - MacOS and Windows versions are included. - In Isadora 2, (v2.6 or later), choose Help > Open Plugin Folder > TroikaTronix Actor Plugins to open the external plugins folder on your computer. - Open the folder for your platform, either Macintosh or Windows, for 32bit plugins (Isadora 2 only!) • On MacOS, the path for 32bit plugins is: /Library/Application Support/TroikaTronix/IsadoraPlugins • On Windows, the path for 32bit plugins is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\TroikaTronix\Isadora Plugins - Drag the contents into the plugins folder you opened above. - Restart Isadora 2. The source code for this plugin can be found on GitHub.

DX – Rustbelt

Rustbelt was designed to be well suited to working in a dark space. The interface is dull except for the elements that you need to see. Actor links are made higher contrast when selected making complex patches easier to work on.

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

Pay me Actor

This is a funny but somehtimes usefull User actor: Sometimes you help people out and write a quick and dirty patch for free so they can test there idea. But you don't want them to tour with it and earn money from your work. Than this actor is perfect. After a set time on all the screens a text will appear. If they still want to use it they will have to contact you to get rid of it.

Countdown to Date

You can select any date in the future and start a countdown in days, hours ,minutes and seconds or in years, days, hours, minutes and seconds. This user actor was made with JavaScript.

DX – Korg nanoKontrol2

This user actor is the simplest way to use a Korg nanoKontrol2 midi controller with Isadora. Works with the default midi mapping that comes pre-installed on the controller. 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.

Usage: In Serial Port Setup, select your DMX device from the device pull-down for one of the available serial ports. (refer to the device documentation for specific settings. Often the defaults will work fine) Set the 'serial port' input of the actor to match the port number you setup. Enable the serial ports via the Communications menu option 'Enable Serial Ports' Any incoming DMX on channels 1-32 should now be output (DMX values range 0-255)
