Interface

 

Morph Pro interface has four main sections: Preview, Browser, Mixer and Module View.

 

Preview

 

Preview Display

 

Displays the preview output.

FPS Display

 

Displays the current frame rate of the output. By default, Morph follows the Vsync settings of the active GPU.

 

Browser

 

Displays the available media modules. Media modules can be FFGL Plugins, Clips, Spout and NDI sources each with its own tab.
Modules can be loaded by dragging and dropping them onto a mixer slot.

 

Mixer

 

Mixes the loaded media modules together with all of the loaded effects applied. The output of the mixer is shown in the Preview section. The mixer contains a Toolbar and mixer Channels.

 

Toolbar

 

Always contains a MIDI button to allow mixer controls to be mapped to a MIDI controller, a list of MIDI Maps that shows a list of available MIDI maps currently available and the Lock button which locks mixer controls.

MIDI

 

This button is used to program mixer controls to a MIDI controller.

MIDI Maps

 

This dropdown is used to show any MIDI maps currently available for the mixer. You can switch between any MIDI map simply by clicking on the up or down buttons next to the dropdown.

Lock

 

This button is used to lock the mixer controls.

Channels

 

Contains the project’s mixer channels. Each mixer Channel contains a Control Stack, Source Stack and Effect Stack that are used to adjust the output of the channel and add, edit and remove media modules.

 

Control Stack

 

Contains the channel Enable button and the Level fader.

 

Enable

 

This button is used to enable or disable a mixer channel.

Level

 

This fader is used to adjust the Opacity Level (alpha) of a mixer channel.

 

Source Stack

 

Contains the channel Source Slot.

 

Source Slot

 

This slot contains the Source Module of a mixer channel and only accepts Source Modules.
By default, a mixer slot is empty and contains no controls. Once a media module is loaded onto a mixer slot, the target slot will update to display module controls.

 

Slot Controls

 

Mixer slots loaded with a module, will have basic module controls to View, Bypass or Close the module.

 

View

 

Shows the module, including its parameters, MIDI maps, presets and information in the module viewer.

 

Bypass

 

Bypasses the module in the mixer. This can be used to preview what the mixer output will look like without a particular source or effect and is useful for making quick changes in a live setting.

 

Close

 

Closes the loaded module and resets the mixer slot back to an empty state.

 

Effect Stack

 

Contains the channel’s group of Effect Slots.

 

Effect Slot

 

Each Effect Slot contains an Effect Module of a mixer channel. An Effect Slot is identical to a Source Slot with the exception that it only accepts Effect Modules.

 

Module View

 

Shows the controls supported by a media module loaded onto a mixer slot.
A media module contains a Toolbar and control Parameters.

 

Toolbar

 

Contains all of the functionality that a media module supports including the MIDI button, MIDI Maps dropdown, Presets dropdown, Info text display, Render size controls and the Lock button.

 

MIDI

 

This button is used to program module controls to a MIDI controller if the module supports MIDI control.

 

MIDI Maps

 

This dropdown is used to show any MIDI maps currently available for the active module if it supports MIDI programming. You can switch between any MIDI map simply by clicking on the Up or Down buttons next to the dropdown.

Presets

 

This dropdown is used to show any presets currently available for the active module if it supports presets. You can switch between any preset simply by clicking on the Up or Down buttons next to the dropdown.
