Hi everyone,

I am looking for some beta testers. If you like building graphics and can test the output over NDI then you are a strong candidate. The app is windows based, 2d paint and animation software that sends a real time NDI feed and can save file sequences, avi's and mov's. (in limited formats that will be expanding). Think After Effects meets Windows Paint. Powerful, but easier to use? I'm not there yet with marketing or even price but am closing in on release.

Please message me if you have the time to play.

Thanks,
Mike

The link you sent had "..." in the middle of the URL. I just guessed at what was there and was able to download it.

Mike,
If you still need beta testers, I'd be glad to help.

I am, a new build is up that addresses the issues found so far. I will private message you

New Build is up. Same download link. This addresses grey screen on some resolutions with different windowed shortcuts in the start menu.... NDI Input and multi output support hopefully by end of week! Theoretically we could send 99 NDI outputs (1 for each layer) Anyone know how many outputs can a system reliably send? Depends on the network I guess? Any other factors? (CPU/RAM?)

If it is just a single frame, then 99 outputs probably isn't an issue. But if it is video, then about 8 to 10 is what is supported over a 1Gb Ethernet link for 1080i type video.

I'm willing to help beta test if you need another set of eyes.

New Forum (http://www.panamndi.com/) is up for getting involved and answering questions about Panamation NDI. Again, this tool is for those who wish to create or modify their own graphics either live or pre-production to be brought into vMix or any other platform.

I scratched my head when I saw the word Panamation in your post. I have heard that before somewhere in the past... then went to your forum and read a little and then was Holy Crap! that's how I know it. I was big time Trinity user. So I of course used Panamation often. Great to hear you breathing a little life into the old code. Shoot me an email if I can be of assistance. Looking forward to seeing what all you come up with.

Hi Vinh, I sent the link to download to your email. NDI input to the telestrator app is now working! Little bit of tuning needs done but check it out! Workspace Properties Panel / SRC button

Beta Testers, a new version will be posted tomorrow night. Improvements are:

- Faster frame rate for NDI input when drawing in telestrator mode.
- Discreet NDI output option for each layer (up to 99).
- General bug fixes

Regarding content, I am thinking of splitting that into a separate installer to keep the app installer size down (under 20 mb vs. 200 mb and growing)

Thoughts? Feelings? Any particular content you'd like to see added? Emoji's? More lower animated thirds?

Hi Mike, send me a PM if you still need Beta testers. I'm definitely intrigued since we use NDI all the time!
