Playing two different videos on two separate projectors

Postby manumagic » 30 January 2018, 10:02

We love using sweetlight for our shows. We introduced videoprojection (front stage) two years ago using the video line in Timeline : perfect.
We would like now to improve our system with a second videoprojector (at the rear, backstage) to develop mapping effects on our stage set.
Is it possible with sweetlight (two video lines)? If not, what would you advise us ? Thanks in advance.
Our system details : MacBook Pro, D512, Sweetlight

Sorry but our software is not able to play two different videos simultaneously.
We (support) presently do not see any easy solution for that.
We hope some other users could bring some tips.

You could trigger a second sequence of videos with Resolume Arena thru DMX. But you would maybe/probably need a second PC/Mac: Resolume is CPU hungry... even more so when you use output mapping. It's also a great software to work with, but it's not free... at all !

I agree with Luc,best bet would be to do some kind midi triggering on another device.
An easy way possibly. Set up another computer with sweet light and send a trigger to it from the main sweet light to play a video. Set a macro that triggers both the 1st video then the trigger for the other computer’s video.

Good luck
