Resolume to MadMapper connexion tutorial

This tutorial will teach you how to connect Resolume Avenue to MadMapper.
First, you’ll need the Syphon FreeFrameGL plugin,
that will allow you to share video frames between Resolume Avenue and MadMapper.

If you don’t have it yet, go to Syphon site and download the plugin.
Direct download link is SyphonFreeframeGL plugin

Then copy the plugins (syphon Client and Syphon Server bundle) into your /Resolume Avenue/plugins/vfx folder
which should be located in your Applications folder.

Launch Resolume Avenue and load up some media files.

Go to the Effects section of Resolume and select the Syphon Server effect

Drag the effect on the Composition Effects section of Resolume,
under the Video Effects.
Eventually rename the Syphon server to something like “Resolume to MadMapper”
This will automatically publish the Resolume output.

Launch MadMapper and go in the Media tab.
You should see the “Resolume to MadMapper” listed under the Syphon section of MadMapper.
Double click it, and Resloume’s output will automatically appear in the Input view of MadMapper

Now it is time to make some primitives in MadMapper.
Click the Surface tab and click the Triangle icon.
This will create a Triangle in the output, letting you select which part of the Resolume input you want
to display on your newly created Triangle.

Eventually, repeat the procedure to make more triangles, or press Command+D to duplicate to currently
selected triangle.

Once your mapping setup is finished, minimize MadMapper and go back to Resolume
to start playing live.
Yes, live video-mapping !

  1. thank you for easy lesson ;)

  2. is it only for mac?

  3. How do I got the final output from madmapper, I cant get the fullscreen view


    • Francois Wunschel Says:

      you need to have a secondary display connected. MadMapper will detect it.
      If you don’t, the output can only go on your main screen, but not fullscreen !

  4. I dont find the plugin :( 404 ERROR ):
    A link? Thk for all !
    See you

  5. Cool!! Is it possible to have more than one compostion on madmapper form resolume?? or is it just limited to one? thanks!

  6. I mean on composition in ‘surface 1’, another one in ‘surface 2’…and another layer maybe in surface 3…

    something like in this video for module8:


    • Francois Wunschel Says:

      yes you can, using the same principles.
      scale each layer, put them side by side, and publish the whole output to Syphon…
      et voila !

  7. syphon aint working on my resolume.. I keep geting a white screen. Ive looked for older versions and tried pretty much has to be something simple no?

    • Francois Wunschel Says:

      simple, indeed. for me it worked out of the box.
      Did you try to ask on Resolume forums ? (I’m not a resolume expert)

  8. VDJ Kool Fx Says:

    I was trying to apply some effects by dragging and dropping it on the Video effect section…when i go to madmapper by double click on Resolume to Madmapper, but i cudn’t see the effect that i was applying…why i cudn’t see???

  9. I have the demo of Resolume 4 and I can’t find the Syphon option. Is this because I only have the demo version? or does Syphon only work on Resolume 3?
