I work both ways as you suggest, static mapping has its advantages, but I personally feel the flexibility to move between slices on alternative screens, especially whilst working with extended ratios and multiple projections is something VJs will be expecting from their chosen software packages. Laptops and projectors are becoming cheaper, faster and with the processor power we are all used to this multi projection mapping approach can become a standard, it would be great if Resolume can take a lead and be one of the first to act fast on new features that Vjs are requesting across the board and on most other VJ software forums.
Arena 4 seems to propose for it all to be within the one package and the extra price expresses a leaning towards a more advanced set up / for performers who would rather not be continually looking towards add-ons to improve their workflow ( madmapper imappio etc.)
I for one have already paid for my Arena upgrade, I am interested to see how it may develop and if suggestions are taken seriously by the resolume crew, I will be fast to act on introducing it into the various media arts departments I work alongside.
