VJamm Blueprint 1.0.1 - Freeware

A VJamm Blueprint 1.0.1 egy könnyen használható és ingyenes VJ program PC-re. Töltsétek, próbáljátok, esetleg írjatok róla!

VJamm Blueprint is an intutive yet powerful visual improvisation tool, designed with live performance in mind.
It is an ideal tool for the VJ (Video Jockey) who wants to produce un-rehearsed visuals to accompany a DJ or band.
Our goal when producing Blueprint was to empower the performer to play and synthesize visuals in realtime with the same ease as an electronic keyboard player can with sounds. The feedback from people who are now using the software is encouraging - many have found themselves rapidly absorbed in the creative process, producing compelling, original effects simply by exploring the available settings.
VJamm Blueprint has been used in the field by working VJs throughout its development, and incorporates ideas and lessons learned from hundreds of hours of live performance. VJamm Blueprint therefore has many features of key importance to live performance: live video inputs, rock-solid playback, fast triggering, multiple video outputs etc....
However, VJamm Blueprint can also be used to generate source footage. Complex effects can be played with in realtime, and rendered out at the touch of a button when they look right. Video editors can save hours generating material this way.
Although VJamm Blueprint has been aimed primarily at the silent VJ, since audio is supported, it can also be used for Audio/Visual (A/V) performances. This is a field in which VJamm Blueprints partner application, VJamm Pro, has a well established reputation.

SplatBox, the VJ app, on Microsoft Surface

Kevin Kennedy öt éve dolgozik a Microsoft Surface csapatában. Érdekkes alkalmazással foglalkozik, a neve: SplatBox. Ez egy VJ program, amit WPF-ben írtak. ( Hogy ez mi, ne kérdezzétek, mert fogalmam sincs. Ha valaki tudja, felvilágosíthatna bennünket! ) A megvalósítás még eléggé kiforratlan, de nagy lehetőségeket rejt magában.
Kevinnel Eric Havir készített interjút.

" Kevin Kennedy will have been with the Microsoft Surface team five years in January. On the blog, he's brought you How Creating Surface Apps is Different, parts one and two. You can see his intro too. It's hard to get developers out of their offices and on the blog sometimes, so I went to Kevin's office this time. We took a look at his application called SplatBox. It's a VJ application written in WPF. The design aspects are fairly raw, but it's full of possibilities. We walked through the app in the video below. "

Addictive TV Remix

Danny Boyle "Slumdog Millionaire" című, január 9-én bemutatásra kerülő, nagy érdeklődéssel várt fílmjének remixét készítette el az Addictive TV. ( A mozit már jelülték a Golden Globes-ra és az Oszkár jelölés sem kizárt. ) Az biztos, a remix remek!
" Meticulously sampling the film for its vibrant sounds and images, and reconstructing them into this fast-paced audiovisual remix mash-up, Addictive TV give Slumdog Millionaire their unique treatment.
Danny Boyle's forthcoming "Slumdog Millionaire" - which opens January 9th - looks set to be a big hit. The film, already nominated for the Golden Globes and tipped for the Oscars, tells the story of a kid from the slums of Mumbai who gets to go on India's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?". "

Off the Wall (VJ Cuisine & DJ ChocoMel) at Paradiso, Amsterdam

Ma egy rövid riportot nézünk meg VJ Cuisine-nel és DJ ChocoMel-lel Amszterdamból: kik ők, mit csinálnak, hogyan csinálják, stb.


" Off the Wall is an audio-visual crew comprised of VJ Supreme Cuisine and DJ Mel. This Dutch duo first joined forces in 2004 to create an urban eclectic show that mixes and mashes up all kinds of found footage from across the decades.
Mel has DJed at events across the Netherlands, while Supreme Cuisine’s visuals have been used at gigs around the globe – and, having known each other since the 1980s, they’re also pretty good mates.
So click on now to catch up with the guys four years down the line… In this clip, Off the Wall can be seen and heard shaking the house (as well as the pop, funk and hip hop) at the SEEN visual music night, held at club Paradiso in Amsterdam.
Here, VJ Supreme Cuisine and DJ Mel explain more about their collaboration, the night, and how they go about performing live, DVD-DJ-style. "

B Seite Visual Arts Festival - Visualist Party in Manheim, Germany

Bár a mai bejegyzés egy fesztiválról szól - aminek van magyar vonatkozása is, mint a végén láthatjátok :) -, némileg kapcsolódik a tegnapi cikkhez is, mert szó esik benne a QC-ről és tartalmaz pár QC címet is.

" How do you put on a great festival for visualists? Ask the crew behind B Seite (that’s B Side, for the native language of us current and former British Empire subjects). Visualist and Quartz Composer guru Shakinda (as seen previously in free tutorials here) was there, and reports back:
Last weekend I was over performing and giving a quartz composer workshop and the most excellent B Seite festvial, Pixelschubser and his team had put a fantastic amount of effort into a very inspiring program…. It was shot on a movie mode of a digital stills camera so excuse the quality and sound!
It looks insanely hot. If this doesn’t make you want to start throwing some eye candy-filled visual parties and workshops, nothing will. I know we can get our geek on just like the Germans (well, I have at least a few drops of German blood, and a German surname).
Viva la visualist revolucion!

B Seite / B Side Vj / Visual Arts Festival Mannheim :: Shakinda podcast from shakinda on Vimeo.
David, aka Mr. Monkeypresso, was also at Manheim’s B Seite visual fest. He sends along some documentation of his live set, which made use of some visual tools of which we’re already quite fond:
a small demo of my latest live visuals what i did in mannheim, at the great bseite festival. I used here for first time my soft. developed in quartz composer. Thanks for all who helped me in this (Kineme, Vade, Memo and more). And thanks for Benjamin Jantzen for the festival.
For some of those Quartz Composer Mac resources, see our previous story:

And you might want to specifically check out CDMo contributor vade’s own Cocoa/QC projects:

Plus of course the Kineme plug-ins and tutorials:

And the always-awesome Memo Akten, with lots of eye candy and still more QC resources:

Qartz Composer Tutorials ( Workshop )

A Qartz Composer az OSX moduláris programnyelve, mely remekül alkalmas vizualizáció létrehozására és együttműködik minden QC fogadására képes VJ app-pal, mint pl a VDMX, CoGe, stb.
Bár a kezelése egyszerű, de azért elég absztrakt gondolkozást kíván, ezért kis segítségűl itt van pár oktatóanyag:

" As the first in what should be a series of Quartz Composer/VDMX tutorials, it shows the basic steps of how to make a ball bounce to the beat of the music.

Quartz Composer/VDMX tutorial no 1: The bouncing ball from goto10 on Vimeo.
The Quartz patch used is available here

Second installment of the series, showing some limitations of the technique used in part one, and a different way to sync visuals to the beat.

Quartz Composer/VDMX tutorial no 2: The bouncing ball, part two from goto10 on Vimeo.

Possibly the most perplexing concept to wrap your head around in Quartz Composer is the iterator. Iteration in code is pretty straightforward (think “for” loops), but while it’s powerful in a patch, it’s conceptually a bit of a challenge. So it’s great to see Kineme (makers of great QC plug-ins) making sense of it in this tutorial:

Tutorial on Iterators from Christopher Wright on Vimeo.
Shakinda has a look at getting your visuals grooving to the music:

Cinesthesy 1.0 - AudioVisual Festival

" Last month saw an amazing lineup of European visualists performing in Créteil, Paris for the Cinesthesy 1.0 festival.
If you missed the live streaming of this event, or would like to see some of it again, you’re in luck! Les Pixels Transversaux have been posting entire performances (as well as “extracts”) to Vimeo:

SATI@CINESTHESY 1.0 (EXTRACT) from PIXELS Transversaux on Vimeo.
Sati (full version) give a performance which runs the gauntlet between minimalist soundscapes and muted tilt-shift photography, to techy tracks featuring animated vectors and motion design.

WILDBITS (Pierre Mersadier) @ CINESTHESY1.0 (EXTRACT) from PIXELS Transversaux on Vimeo.
Wildbits (full version) puts together 3 acts of beautifully composed 3D feedback effects and crunchy audio.
You can see the full performances and, being hosted on Vimeo, they’re also available for download and later viewing or projection at your own private Cinesthesy night!
It really is fantastic to see live events expanding to include streaming and further public documentation. Especially for AV performances, it’s a no-brainer to take the feeds going to the PA and projector and capture them for later dissemination, and the additional cameras and touches of live video mixing really bring the event to you.
More Cinesthesy performances will be posted in the future, so keep an eye on Les Pixels Transversaux on Vimeo for further viewing. "

Now on the Nintendo DS: OpenSoundControl

" Úgy néz ki végre tényleg beindult az elöregedett MIDI protokollt lecserélni tervezett OpenSoundControl (OSC) szekere. Egyre több szoftver szintetizátor, videós/VJ alkalmazás és standalone/plugin fejlesztőkörnyezet támogatja.
Most egy igen combos potenciális felhasználói tömeg, becslések szerint több mint 84 millió júzer használhatja immár az OSC-ot, ugyanis Tim Wood fejlesztésében megjelent a Nintendo DS-re is, a DSMI fejlesztői környezet/library kollekció keretében. Ezzel a tollat markolászó fejlesztők számára nyitott az út a nagyfelbontású protokoll használatához és rajta keresztül a számítógépes alkalmazások vezérléséhez.
További infók és letöltés Tim Wood weboldalán. "

" Big news from the homebrew Nintendo DS scene: OpenSoundControl is now supported, thanks to a community contribution from Tim Wood. That means you can drag your stylus around and send high-resolution data straight to software running on your computer. From the DSMI site:
OSC is an emerging standard for exchanging music control signals that is much more flexible and modern than MIDI. For example, OSC can directly communicate via network, so the PC-side DSMI server is not required.
fishuyo also made a nice demo with a Kaoss pad and sliders of the new OSC capabilities. It comes with a pd patch that is a nice little synth. Check out the demo’s source code! OSC is really easy to add to your application. And it’s the future! So, get libdsmi v3.0 now!
Add this to controller apps for the iPhone/iPod touch, and it’s easy to turn your mobile device into an additional controller. (Think an easy-to-add X/Y pad, for instance, that you can plop on that blank space on your keyboard.)
Full details:

I got lots of requests in our holiday guide survey for tutorials on Pd and tutorials on OSC, so – be sure you’re going to get a Pd + OSC tutorial!
For the record, this opens up OSC to as many as 84+ million units of hardware. (and that’s before you decide you want to get the new model just for the color red) "

+ Promo - upcoming gigs, releases, etc:
Recently The Japansese Pop Stars have been in contact with me about doing some Video Mixing for their new tracks and possibly working with them to help develop a Midi synched Audio Visual show for their Festival season in 2009 which will span over most of Europe.
You can see my list of upcoming gigs at myspace.com/dvjchristians
+ Type of work you do:
Im an audio/visual artist, I think the real power comes from merging the two forms together. I have two resident slots in Northern Ireland mostly visual stuff, but im preparing my AV set which I will start performing in the new year.
I also run Audio Innovation, a production company that specializes in audio production for radio stations and audio imaging for live DJ sets.
In the past I have released my dance music productions through a Belfast based label called Soul Tech Recordings although im now working with a new producer called GMX, So our new productions will be coming out under a different label.
+ Your team and what people generally do (even if you’re solo, you usually work with certain people frequently - how does that work?): My VJ stuff is mainly solo work, however as previously mentioned I have now teamed up with VJ Shakinda. We call ourselves The VJs, in the new year we could be taking over Irelands biggest club, Lush in portrush. Which is getting fitted with a 20foot by 15foot LCD screen.
+ Best gig: Its hard to name one but highlights of this year have been Miami Winter Music conference in march, playing with Ronnie Size and Reprazent live at Electric Picnic this summer was also a lot of fun and The main stage at Planet Love festival in Dublin also in summer, and winning the Edirol European VJ Challenge in London was a real thrill.
+ Most random thing that ever happened at a gig: Having to hold an umbrella over my gear in the q-dance tent at the planet love festival in Belfast (it can get very wet over here in Ireland J )
+ Non-VJ stuff you do: Producing music and currently im working on a BBC radio documentary for BBC radio ulster.
+ Who you’d love to work with in the near future: Coldcut =)
