With almost 5000 downloads of VPT 5.1, I am happy to announce that the next version of Video Projection Tools, VPT 6 is now available.
VPT is a powerful and flexible video projection tool that does much more than just mapping.
What´s new in VPT 6.0
A completely new graphical interface making it even simpler to position, scale and distort the layers.
32 layers (previously 16)
mesh distortion with variable-sized control grid.
a completely rewritten cuelist making it even simpler to create transitions and to build complex sequences. You can now also send osc formatted commands directly from the cuelist.
crop-scaling of sources.
increased syphon support with two syphon (crop-scalable) inputs as well as syphon output support (mac only)
a DMX module has been added, with support for Enttecs usbdmx pro interface, enabling both control of VPT from DMX light consoles, or the possibillity to control dmx devices from VPT.
VPT still supports mac and windows, and it is still free. However, I have added the option for contributions through paypal:
VPT 6 is made possible through the support of IMAL in Brussels and Atelier Nord in Oslo.
IMAL offered me a one month residency in april to give a VPT workshop and to do an exhibition.
Atelier Nord has supported me twice this year: First they hosted a workshop as part of Oslo Lux in January which ended up in a VPT 5.1 release, and in june they gave me a week residency to write documentation for VPT 5.5 which instead turned into intense development of VPT 6.
So hosting workshops and inviting me to residencies is another way of supporting my work.
