KlakSyphon is a Syphon plugin for Unity that allows sharing frames between applications with minimum CPU/GPU cost.

The most important feature of KlakSyphon is that it supports Metal. You can use Metal on Unity to utilize the GPU features and, at the same time, use Unity in combinations with other Syphon-enabled OpenGL applications, like VDMX or MadMapper.

System Requirements

  • Unity 2018.1
  • Metal graphics API
  • MacOS 10.12 Sierra

KlakSyphon only supports Metal; It doesn't support the OpenGL (GL Core) mode.

MacOS 10.11 El Capitan is also supported, but some Mac models (iMac/MacBook with NVIDIA GPU) have problems with required functionalities on it. 10.12 Sierra is safer choice to support wider range of devices.


Download and import one of the .unitypackage files from Releases page.
