this is not so much a QC-ciip but an example to coding illiterates (of which i'm a proud member) of just how easy it is to start using joysticks, PS2-pads, steering wheels, whatever in VDMX. I have this clip running in the background in QT player, and it converts the HID input signals to MIDI, then sends it to VDMX. i then use regular MIDI detect to pick up on the signal within VDMX.

this example uses a logitech attack joystick, but it could be anything. 

it's not much, but i felt i had to give something, anything, to this community from which i've snagged to much code :)

Great

It is a great thing. But I didn't get it completely. So can you post its detail information. If I will know this then it will be great for me. Thanks in advance.

Alternative Method

Good work!

As an alternative, you could also use the new custom QC plugin functionality of VDMX to create a plugin to bring in values from a QC HID patch as data sources directly in VDMX, without the need to convert them to MIDI first (though this could also be handy for other things).

There's a post about it on my blog

You can also download the QTZ from the Box.net widget on the blog. The file is named
