(update: VPT 5.5 turned into VPT 6 before it got released, and can be expected very soon)
I am busy finishing the upcoming release of VPT 5.5, and wanted to share a few of the new features.
One major addition is the possibillity to perform mesh distortion to each layer, giving you even more flexibility over the projected output.
The control interface gives you control over each point in the mesh.
Syphon is becoming an important tool for sharing image data between applications on Mac osX, supporting more and more applications (there is now a more or less working Processing implementation as well).
VPT already impemented syphon-in capabilities with version 5, but with version 5.5 there is more:
You can record the output from VPT using the Syphon Recorder App.
You can use different parts of the incoming Syphon image data in different layers: Using your favourite syphon-enabled application you can tile your output so that VPT split up the single syphon source into multiple sources.
For instance, if your syphon-app sends out something like this:
VPT can either use the whole image or split it up into four individual layers:
There are plenty of other improvements, which will be covered when it is released.
For VPT 5.5 I finally get the possibillity to make proper video tutorials, as Atelier Nord has generously offered me a one week residency to do this.
Expected release date: mid-June.
As always, free (with the possibility to donate).
btw, about 3500 people have downloaded VPT 5.1
