MadMapper: The Video Mapping software!

MadMapper is a simple but advanced tool for video mapping projections and Light mapping. Take a projector, point it at a physical volume like an object or an architectural element, and then map an image onto it.

MadMapper was created by artists for artists, you spend more time to focus on creating your content, and making the experience of mapping textures to physical objects in real time, than solving technical issues.

MadMapper is also built around the idea of sharing video content between applications. with Syphon a Mac OS X based framework, any application that uses Syphon server can be used a video and light mapping source in MadMapper.

MadMapper also allows to manipulate lighting fixtures (such as LEDs) using MAD_Light,within the same unified environment.
