Re: NDISender - Performance

Re: Multiple spout outputs

The easy way to do this is to have two separate things happening in your Magic scene -- one on the left side, one on the right. Then in Resolume you can crop the Spout input to use either the left or right.

Re: Supported 3D File Formats

Unfortunately the code for 3D model loading is open source and it seems to occasionally have bugs like this.

.obj seems to be the best.

Re: Magic Frequency Range

Magic will react to any frequency that is in the audio. Since 44.1kHz audio contains every frequency from 0 until 44.1kHz/2 = 22.05kHz, then yes, less than 1Hz will be in there.

I guess I was wondering why you asked before just trying it out ;).

Re: Trouble playing back Audio files loaded into the Player

There are some known issues with certain external sound cards.

Does everything work normally with the internal sound?

It's a reasonable request.

There is a Feature Requests forum in case you hadn't seen it.

Re: NDISender - Performance

NDI is much slower than Spout. NDI should only be used between different computers. On the same computer, always use Spout.

Re: Videofile CPU overload

If the CPU is the constraint, then you should try re-encoding the file with a different codec. The one that is the most CPU-efficient, especially if you have a fast SSD drive, is called "Hap": https://hap.video/

Re: Does anyone use this with OBS

I strongly recommend that you use Spout (Windows) or Syphon (macOS) to connect to OBS. It's much more efficient than generic screen capture.

Re: From Magic to Synesthesia, then back to Magic to mix sig

The SyphonServer module (in the post Sadler linked to) is the correct approach here. I can't remember the last time we updated it, so if it doesn't work with your version of Magic, please let me know and we'll fix it.

Hi, we don't offer discounts to "add" an activation to an existing license. You would just buy another license from our web site. Please see https://magicmusicvisuals.com/forums/vi ... 327#p10423

Re: No output in the Magic Window

Windows 11 isn't an issue; Magic runs fine on it.

Maybe try doing Help > Reset All Settings.
