    I am looking to do a cheap & cheerful video mapping show this year and have been looking at a few youtube videos on the subject, I am interested in what software is being used and how people are finding it?

    I have been looking at MoviePlus X6 which seems reasonably simple to learn and not a bad price, there are many others with more features and prices to match but I would like to stay with the easier route.

    Any comments would be appreciated.

    Cheers Kev

    I did have a look at that one too, another is HeavyM.

    Will the mini presentations be available for viewing?

    Well I bit the bullet today and had a bit of a win in the process, the software was 25% off on the website so yah hoo!!

    http://www.serif.com/ has the voucher code JUNE25 MoviePlus X6

    I paid NZ$71.24 instead of the normal NZ$94.99 so pretty happy with that.

    I have also had experience with "MadMapper". Good peice of software for all the Mac uses out there. I managed to run 6 projectors from my Mac Book pro. I was running the internal hdmi port, a thunderbolt hub with multiple vga adaptors and a usb3 dvi graphics card. I also really liked being able to plug in my canon 60D and take scans of the surface and the projectors, I could see a representation of the angle and depth of various surfaces. Was an awesome solution!
