Next week we’ll be projecting on the tennis ground of the BNP Paribas Tennis Masters, in Paris / Bercy.
So it was time for some improvements to our Tetra.Tennis custom application.
This year we’ll go with Particles, thanks to our ParticlesWarFare QC plugin (available for download), and we’ll run the show through MadMapper – our custom Video Mapping software.
Hope to see you there.
Here’s a snapshot of the on-going app:

Tetra.Tennis 0.30

I’ve been working today on the new Tetra.Tennis UI.
Currently using BGHudAppKit.framework – as pointed by Vade, thanks mate !-,
for a uber-friendly HUDstyle interface.
The software is still in dev. , but allows so far to control video and strobes,
all via manual controls or MIDI sync.
The strobes will finally also be controlled by Fred Viktor’s drum kit, live of course.

As stated earlier, we’re currently developing a cute little software to drive the Tennis Masters stroboscopes array.
We’re currently controlling everything through Midi, which is then translated into DMX signal internally.

Here’s a snapshot of the software in progress.
