Tim Gruchy, The Lab & Arts South Australia
2 Day Workshop by Tim Gruchy
A workshop based around Isadora software. More than a program it is an object oriented programming environment designed by artists for artists.
The workshop will be in Isadora software (https://troikatronix.com )
More than a program it is an object oriented programming environment designed by artists for artists. It is very easy to learn and suitable for beginners through to experts, an ideal platform for creating interactive multimedia projects and any audio visual requirements including multiscreen display and 3D mapping. When the program license is no longer active it is still a runtime module, fully functional but with no ‘save’. This means any projects made whilst the license is active can still be used in playback at any time
Workshop Participants to bring:
- Participants should bring their own laptop or computer ideally a second monitor also, though not essential. Computers should also have a webcam, either inbuilt or external.
