Welcome!
Toys For Theater introduces Nyno 1.2, video broadcasting application for performing arts.
We wanted Nyno 1.2 to be simple and efficient as a stand-alone application, but also open to external control such as MIDI and
Art-Net.
The Mac and its inertial trackpad and Syphon capabilities stands out as the ideal platform for our application.
Some features of Nyno 1.2 are specific for theater, such as the indexation of background colors on major makers filters or the
supertitles generator.
Everyone though should benefit from its features in their own environment.
Also, we wanted Nyno 1.2 to be affordable, so as to make quality video broadcasting accessible for all.
Enjoy your reading.
Nicolas Barraud & Ph.Montémont
System requirements:
Apple Macintosh with Intel Processor. Models older than 2010 should be avoided.
Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.x) at least.
For real time video, we recommand the fastest processors, the maximum RAM available and fast hard drives (7,200 rpm or SSD).

Getting Started
Create a folder containing all necessary media, i.e. images and sounds.
Files are ordered alphabetically in default settings. To bypass this, just add a number at the beginning of the name of every element
(here: 00, 01...08). 64 elements maximum. Then:
➊ Browse toward Media folder...
➋ Render is stopped in order to
accelerate the uploading of
Thumbnails.You will have to click
here at the end of the upload
process.

Then...,
Thumbnails ("Vignettes") are updated. Click on a Thumbnail to feed Player A. In Nyno 1.2, ⌃-click to feed player B
You might have to configure the Trackpad data reception:
- On a MacBook Pro (Mac OSX Mountain Lion), choose "Apple Internal Keyboard/Trackpad" and element #6.
- On a MacBook Pro (Mac OSX Snow Leopard), choose "Apple Internal Keyboard/Trackpad 2" and element #6.
- On a MacBook, choose "Trackpad" and element #6.

Controllers
Nyno 1.2 features two sorts of controllers:
Jog Wheel:
Click-and-drag to the value to increase/decrease it.
The triangle becomes red or the box becomes white.
You may also click and then type a value directly from the pad. Press Tab (⇥ ) to
deselect the Jog Wheel.
For this kind of Jog Wheel, please type  et  to
increase and decrease values...
Click-and-Drag within the Fader to increase/decrease the value.

Controllers
All controllers can be managed through the Two Finger Trackpad, with or without inertia.
Place the pointer on the tactile zone, which becomes red to indicate that it's now commanded by the Trackpad.
Trackpad control
If you press ⌥ continuously, the tuning gets more precise.
If you click on the tactile zone, it becomes yellow and gives an initialization value. This is an easy way to put yourself back in
position.
Clic: initialization
Controllers of players A, B have additionnal features:
If you press ⇧, any command will apply to both players in same direction, no matter which player you were using.
If you press continuously ⌃+⇧, any command will be active in both players in opposite directions. Fine tuning with ⌥ also
works with these keyboard shortcuts.

Smooth MIDI & Art-Net data
You will find the HiTester utility in the "Ajouts" folder located into Nyno-Files. It will make the identification of your Mac's Trackpad
features easier.
MIDI controllers must be connected to the Mac and started before the lauching of the application.You will find in the "Ajouts" folder
in the download archive the configuration files of Korg NanoKontrol 1&2 and a SysEx for Behringer's BCF2000.
Smooth allows interpolation between integer values of incoming MIDI or DMX512 streams. This function should be tested before use.

Zoom operates from 0. to 2.55. 1.00 is the native size of the image.
You should rather use UYVY mode which is notably faster for playing HD media. For media with a transparent background, you should
use ARGB for a correct management of the Alpha layer:
➊ ARGB...
➋ UYVY...

Players A & B
Local Apps using Syphon* may send or receive video streams directly from the Graphic Card & Open GL. Emitters are called « Servers»,
receptors are called « Clients».
Players A & B are clients. Nyno’s embarked digitizer is a server. Since the same application may contain several servers, one should inform
Nyno 1.2 about choosen App & server:

Title generator
The Title generator is always at the front.
Browse to your text file
How to make your title file:
The file should be a simple text: ".txt"
You might have to modify it as the "," and ";" signs cannot be read directly.You will have to put a backslash before them: "\," and "\;"
A word processor will easily search and replace all these elements.

The sequencer allows to create up to 999 « Cues» for a temporized restitution. Most of parameters are recorded. Time may vary
between 0.1 and 25.5 seconds. One may delete current cue or insert at current Cuelist position. One may overwrite a Cue. Once
authorized, one may save/read the whole project to/from disk . Keyboard shortcuts allow to manipulate Sequencer commands even if

Sequencer
The Sequencer may be controlled via Flexcom with MIDI or Art-Net. Nyno 1.2 may also be controlled by any LightRegie120vf, local or
distant, via the COM* Network. In the case of several instances of Nyno 1.2 to be controlled via LightRegie120vf, the « VF Address»
concatenated to the word « nyno» allows to access a specific instance, as seen below « nyno5». The word « nyno» with no specific
address routes the message to all instances.
