VDMX unfortunately doesn't have this feature built-in, but fortunately has beautiful integration with Quartz Composer - allowing me to build a quad warper in QC using a GLSL vertex shader, which should be super fast.
Also, around the 4:30 mark you'll see me masking the video on the box in the back. This is also using a custom Quartz Composition which allows 4 point mask creation. Usage is almost identical to the QuadWarper, but instead of warping the image it just applies a mask, or you can invert the mask and it cuts a chunk out. You could do the same by creating new layers, grouping, using as a layer mask etc. but its a a bit more hassle I think. Using the QuadMask is a lot quicker and you can put multiple QuadMasks on the same layer to draw more complex masks.
Aldeburgh Music is an organization based in Suffolk, UK working with musicians - both professional and just starting out - to help them reach their full potential by providing them with the time and space to discover, create and explore - as well as providing inspirational scenery and a rich musical heritage.
The New Music New Media / Britten–Pears Programme offers advanced performance experience to young professional musicians in the inspiring surroundings of Snape Maltings, home of the Aldeburgh Festival founded by Benjamin Britten in 1948.
This is a demonstration of the different signal modes I added to the Mac OSX Wiimote midi driver - WiiToMidi.
None of the demonstrated signals use the IR sensor so the user has complete freedom of movement (can swing in 360s), stand pretty faraway from any received, computer etc. - and the Nunchuk also has the same position, velocity, orientation etc.
In this previous post I mention creating data-source plugins or processing existing data-sources for VDMX using Quartz Composer. Well the specific example I've given in that post isn't that useful, simply does 1-x^2.
This is a little test using GLSL in Quartz Composer 3.0, and controlling via VDMX. All happening in realtime and completely audio-reactive with no post production or timeline animations etc. The potential is humongous and very exciting!!

Who needs autechre when you have a bunch of mad girls!
P.S. I have hours of footage of this if anyone is interested :P
