Weâ€TMll need Modul8 2.6.2 or better to do this tutorial.
Launch Modul8 and import 3 different clips.
To simplify this tutorial all of my media are 320 x 240 pixels (4 by 3 ratio).
Go to /Preferences/Preview Panel
and set the preview ratio to 12 by 3 (which is 3 times 4 by 3).
Assign your first clip to the first layer. Enable â€œNormalize,â€ so
that you wonâ€TMt have to mess with the scaling, Modul8 will adapt it for
Make two more layers, and repeat the same procedure. Place all the layers in a row:
Go to the preferences again, under the Misc tab, and set the Syphon output to 960 by 240 (which is 3 times 320 by 240):
Using Modul8â€2s post colorization controls lets add some color to help distinguish between the quads:
Now send Modul8â€2s output to MadMapper by enabling the Syphon output (Command-Y) and then
In the Media tab, double click â€œModul8 Main Viewâ€, which should be listed under the Syphon section.
Modul8 output will automatically appear in MadMapperâ€TMs Input view.
Since my Modul8 composition is very horizontal, Iâ€TMve switched the
viewing orientation by click the switch icon (Command-Shift-O):
Now load a background picture to test the mapping setup. Go to Menu/View/Change Preview Background and load a suitable picture:
Go to the Surface Tab, and make a Quad primitive. Adjust the portion
of input to be displayed on the quad in the Input View, and adjust the
Quad positioning and perspective in the Output Preview:
Repeat the operation for the 2 other sides of the cube, each time selecting a different portion of the Input Media:
You now have a different footage on each side of the cube.
The procedure can be repeated for a more complex setup, while
tweaking the flipping option of each quad, to give a more complex look:
