    The history of the Apple ecosystem is one of platform stability that is unique amongst computing platforms. A primary reason is the lack of platform fragmentation [lots of versions] that other platforms suffer from.

    As a software developer on the Mac OS X platform, we are forced to update our developer environment by Apple to the latest operating system version. As the first released version of illumin8 was built using the latest dev environment, it is impacted by changes that Apple has made to their OS that render it incompatible with older versions of Mac OS X 10.12.

    Going forward, we will make past releases available and the user will have the choice to maintain a configuration that it runs on. We will release patches when possible. The primary factor will be the compliance and compatibility requirements that are established by Apple.

    I just purchased a new Ipad for XMAS, It will have OS X 11.0
    Can I use Illumin8 on this device?

    • Hi Richard,

      illumin8 is currently only available on Mac OS X 10.12 & higher. Your iPad uses Apple’s mobile operating system iOS. We will soon announce when the iOS version of illumin8 will be available.

      Best regards,

    illumin8 allows you to apply live and customizable transformations to your webcam feed and most image and video files. From the moment the app starts, simply select the media type you want to start with to select your file or camera of choice, or go right to the sample image included with the application to start applying effects.

    As of this writing there are two different effect sets that can be accessed via the amber appearance button and blue scene button. Selecting either will present the user with an initial batch of effects that they can preview by playing with via selecting the thumbnails and adjusting the provided modifier sliders (note: not all sliders are hooked up for all effects yet, see FAQ for more). MindAptiv plans to continue to iterate and expand on the initial set of transforms offered in this version of illumin8 to include more varied and unique effects over time, as well as the ability to apply more than two effects simultaneously.

    The appearance set of transforms applies a transformation directly to the incoming media, while the scene set applies a final effect to the entire creation, including whatever appearance effects are currently being applied to the user’s chosen media. Users can save screenshots of their creation and slider settings via the export button in the player controls area of the screen and crop out their creations for later use or sharing. The ability to save just the transformed media as an image or as a video clip is forthcoming and in our roadmap for future updates. The effects of transformations can be cleared for each category using the “hide-visibility” eye icons below each effect’s thumbnail from the main transform screen. Like a certain effect, but want to change the source? It’s as easy as selecting one of the media source icons at the top of the page to open a new image, video or camera.

    illumin8’s media processing pipeline is also actively resampling all incoming media assets to match the native resolution of the user’s display hardware using a variety of algorithms and recipes to upsample lower resolution media for more modern displays.

    1. Upon downloading illumin8, double click the .tgz archive to extract the illumin8.app build.
    2. When first running illumin8, you will be presented with a message saying that the app is from the web, select “Open” to go ahead and launch the application.
    3. On the first run, the app will also ask for permission to use the mic and webcam, granting these permissions allows the app to transform your live webcam feed(s) on the fly.  If no camera/mic is detected these pop-ups will not appear until the build is launched with said devices connected.
    4. After addressing the dialog boxes you will be greeted with the illumin8 home screen.  Congratulations, you are ready to play with this initial version of MindAptiv’s first product!

    I’m running illumin8 on mac using vmware, in windows 10 environment, and it runs extremely slow. what are the base requirements for running illumin8, cpu sped, amount of memory, etc?

    • user says:

      Hi Gerald,

      My apologies for the slow response to your question. The base requirements for illumin8 are certainly higher than desired. We will be releasing a new version in Q2 that will sense the capabilities of the device it is running on and will auto-tune the runtime generated code. The result will be a major drop in base requirements to run illumin8. Please standby for notification of the upcoming release with our “Maestro” technology implemented.

      Thank you for your interest in illumin8.

      Best regards,
      Ken
