    Hello I just installed VPT 4.1b5 on a macbook pro 13″
    It runs but I cant see anything.. Ive tried activated the layers, but nothing..
    It shows that the file has been dropped in but I do not see the file…
    Also the camera does not to work either.. Am I missing something? is there a master switch somewhere.. I read manual several times now and there doesnt seem to be any mention of this issue,, Any advice?

    there is a master switch just above the yellow reset button.
    You also need to turn on each source. If you click in the small monitor window next to the source you should see video/live input. If you don´t see a live input open the settings to check if your livesource can be found. If you don´t see your moviesource, make sure you have actually selected one of the files from the drop-menu.

    And, remember to check that the layer you are trying to show your source in is visible (fader up, color something else than black).

    hope this helps!

    Thank you so much for the software. I am trying to set up a video installation using matrox triplehead2go with a film that is in 3 parts but I want to play them simultaneously. I have loaded and can see them and can play as I want them in the mofo window, but I do not know how to make them start at the same time.

    Also, I have yet to connect to the system of projectors, but from reading other info. it seems that I drag the mofo window over to display and make full screen and them it will toggle onto 3 projectors?

    Thanks again for all.

    Hi there!

    Amazing program!

    Is there a way to open the program using Max/Msp, instead of the application itself? I would love to see behind the scenes on what you did to get some of the functions. I see all of that template and examples, but they are only tiny fractions of the entire thing.

    Any idea if it is possible to view the whole patch in Max?


  6. hcgilje Says:

    the sourcecode for VPT 4 is available, VPT5 code is currently not available, but might be at a later point.

    Hey mate, really looking forward to using the software cause it looks great and seems to be the software I was looking for.

    I just downloaded and ran VPT6. As soon as it’s started it becomes terribly slow, like using up all internal memory it can find, and that’s when I’m not even doing anything.
    I’m using Windows 7 32 bits.

    Any idea what I am doing wrong?

  11. hcgilje Says:

    Hi, please post your problem on the VPT forum so other windows users can assist you to get it working. It´s also good to mention what kind of graphics card you have, which version of quicktime etc.

    I was going to nervousvision to ask about detail instruction of implementing DMX. I would like to see a tutorial or white paper much like those you have concerning lfo, midi, osc.

    Please Help!

    I really want to use this program but I am have a number of problems that I am not sure how to fix/

    Currently I am using version 5.1 when I try to open the program I repeatidly get a warning about “the program can’t start because jitlib.dll is missing from your computer” how do I fix this?

    Secondly, when the program finally open the projection window doesn’t appear, instead it simply says “jit.pwindow”. I have tried downloading the recomended version of quicktime but I’m not sure what to do now.

    Please help!!!

    Hi HC,

    Can you tell me whether VPT will work with ARTNET?

    It’s a great tool by the way, thanks.


  16. hcgilje Says:

    currently only dmx for the enttec device on osx is working. In theory it shouldn´t be so hard to implement artnet but it´s nothing I am working on.

    Great program, minimal requirements to use vpt 6 on windows?

    Hello hcgilje
    Thank you for your work on the VPT software! A fantastic program
    I am working towards an art installation that is taking place in empty spaces in Aberdeen city centre and finding your website and blog has been really valuable.
    I am currently trying to find a way of synchronising two video sources through the vpt interface and wondered if you had a solution for this? Is there a way to ensure that both start looping at the same point.
    Any help appreciated

    Hi hcgilje,
    VPT is an awesome program and I’m having a lot of fun with it!
    I’m trying to send OSC commands via UDP protocol from a program written in C# using VisualStudio. The setup and send code is:

    string IP = “”;
    int port = 6667;
    byte[] packetData = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(“/presetnext”);
    IPEndPoint ep = new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Parse(IP), port);
    Socket client = new Socket(AddressFamily.InterNetwork, SocketType.Dgram, ProtocolType.Udp);
    client.SendTo(packetData, ep);

    However VPT isn’t detecting any OSC commands when OSC IN is being monitored. Any ideas to make this work? Any reply is greatly appreciated!

  21. hcgilje Says:

    This is a question for the forum:!forum/vpt-forum
    vpt receive port is 6666

  22. ChrisV Says:

    Hi, I tried 6666 but it still isn’t receiving. Is there anything else I need to do on VPT’s end? I’m pretty sure the code should work since the code is quite straight forward. Any reply appreciated.

  23. Craig Mustard Says:

    I just upgraded my computer, and now i am receiving an error code from the system error…. u891000714:vpt7.exe stating that my QTCF.dll is missing…
    im not code or program savvy, but i did just download quicktime for windows as i thought that is what i needed to get a response from the program, but nothing seems to work…

    Ill post this to the forum, and hopefully i can start using this program… i do many applications and have a wedding this week… any and all help is greatly appreciated!!!


  24. Craig Mustard Says:

    Ah man… i just realized this computer is running Windows 8.1…. am I really just out of luck? Is there any way to make this work?

    Hello, I have a situation here, I just got a laptob that has windows 8, I tried to install vpt7 and I got this message: “the program can’t start because MAXCRT.dll is missing from your computer” I have installed other software to this computer and had no problems, this is the first time I see this message, if anybody has any information on this, I will really appreciate it, as I would really like to have the vpt7 software as a tool for the projects I need to make! thanks!!!

    hcg: I’m just getting started in higher-end VJing and music-paired projections, but I must commend you on your generous efforts. Artists understand the need for excellent tools, and we all appreciate when they come our way without needing considerable financial outlay. You’ve touch many artists who have reached and helped thousands and thousands to enjoy a wide variety of visual expressions. You really are one of us. Thanks again.

    This seems like an awesome program, but is it possible to bridge video output from other programs.
    I saw the live connection to a camera in the manual, but I use Virtualdj (playing music videos) and would like to use this easily to set up my screen on different walls etc.. ?
