Frissítések

Két fejlesztői team is frissítésekkel jelentkezett a napokban:

VDMX 7.40b

VDMX5 was created from the ground up to meet the demands of realtime video performance. Built around a robust data processing architecture it was designed to be used with whatever hardware - or software - you've got available. VDMX is a software based, media processing environment that lets you achieve stunning effects in real time. By linking together and controlling VDMX modules, you build your own virtual video studio, which is equally adept at event production, post production and motion design.
Following in the footsteps of audio software trends, video software and hardware are now fast enough to compete with expensive hardware boxes for doing real-time SD and HD mixing and FX processing. Using your Macintosh, you can achieve astonishing results that are infinitely more flexible than dedicated hardware, for a fraction of the cost. VDMX not only saves you money on hardware, but also saves time. Because of its real time architecture and a control design which encourages creative exploration, you can count on VDMX to get better results faster than working with timelines.

INSTAL·LACIÓ “RETROALIMENT-ARTE”
La retroalimentació és una tècnica utilitzada a la música moderna per crear diferents tipus de sensacions auditives. El mimetisme que experimenta actualment la imatge en la seva relació amb la música fa que pugui adoptar formes menys definides i conceptuals que combreguen més amb el so. Amb la utilització de tres projectors i una càmera dirigida cap a les tres pantalles cream una retroalimentació visual. L'efecte és parescut al que experimentam en un d'aquests ascenssors a on hi ha dos miralls enfrontats, la nostra imatge es repeteix fins a l'infinit. Els espectadors es converteixen en part de l'obra creant-la en temps real i es diverteixen veient-se transformats i deformats pels efectes i colors de la instal·lació.

Message in the bootle 2 (Sziget 2009 - második benyomások)


Szóval a második nap...
Kis változás pozitív irányba: koncerteken egyre több a vizuál, de a reklám falak nem kímélik meg a szemünket a már unásig ismert képektöl...
És a negtívum: a Sziget Sajtóiroda által kiadott pass és VIP kártya feljogosít, hogy bárhova mehessek és felvételt készíthessek, kivéve a Medusa sátrat, a tulajdonosa szerint... a tömegben normális uton bejutni nem tudtam, sajtósként meg nem engedtek be, így bármennyire is seretném, nincs róla egyenlöre kép.
Most egy kis hangulat régi Fatboy Slim zenére.

Message in the bootle (Sziget 2009 - első benyomások)


Tavaly panaszkodtam, hogy kevés a vizuál a Szigeten - ellentétben az utóbbi évekkel, mikor néha a Szárnyas fejvadász Los Angeles-ében éreztem magam -, most tele van led falakkal a tér, de... a legtöbbön csak jobb-rosszabb reklámok futnak. Szomorú!
Volt, ahova a tömeg miatt tegnap nem jutottam be mire végre vetítettek, volt ahova nem volt kedvem már elmenni... Koncerteken nem láttam vizuált, de nem is tudtam mindenhol ott lenni... Ha valaki látott és esetleg megörökítte, ossza meg velünk!
Most egy rövid kis hangulat, Quick Cut verzióban, zenél az Oi Vai Voi. video

Matrox MXO2-Mini review for VJs. Uncompressed HD mixing laptop to laptop.

Matrox MXO2-Mini review for VJs. Uncompressed HD mixing laptop to laptop. from vade on Vimeo.
Learn out how to get Uncompressed HD out of one laptop, into another as a video source, through your VJ software of choice.
The Matrox MXO2-Mini is a fairly cheap HD video digitizer meant for post production/editing usage, but the fact that it supports HDMI 1.3 means it should be able to handle RGB DVI input as long as its a valid 'real' video standard frame-rate and resolution.
Using a laptop that has an Express Card 34 adaptor slot we can finally mix in HD with real HD sources, using whatever Quicktime compatible software we want.
This video shows you how to set up the MXO2-Mini, some of the issues it has with being a bit testy, issues with the Express Card adaptor slot on the Mac Book pro, and setting up Avenue, Modul8 and VDMX for HD mixing.
The MXO2-Mini should work similarly on the PC/Windows side of the equation so applications like VVVV and friends should see it; however I was not able to test this as I don't have a Windows XP Bootcamp partition set up.
This video also features me nerd-ing out and cursing, and generally making an embarrassment out of myself.
The MXO2-Mini retails for around $450 US.
Pros:
*) MOTHERFUCKING UNCOMPRESSED HD MIXING FROM LAPTOP TO LAPTOP.
*) Lets you also grab HD via component, and older analog S-Video and composite sources.
*) Works for editorial/post production workflows as expected
*) Really lightweight, portable and small.
Cons:
*) Very finicky, as the video shows. Hopefully this can be addressed with software & driver updates.
*) Express Card 34 on Apple machines can be a bit touchy. Curious how alternatives handle this.
*) Need a really hefty video card to handle multiple effects at HD resolutions. This can crush your FPS fast.
Im honestly unsure if Im going to keep the MXO2-Mini. It's *so close* to being perfect but the fact of the matter is I really don't want to plug in at a gig and have to jump through hoops to get it working, only to have the Express Card get popped out because of a gentle nudge and be forced to reboot. The other issue is, as an Apple developer/Quartz Composer user and being tied to OS X, the next machine Id have to get would be a 17", as the 15" Mac Book Pros no longer have an Express Card slot. I mean, Id *much* rather have a SD card reader, because reading SD cards was absolutely im-fucking-possible to do before we had built in card readers.. right?
So so close, you can taste it. Its coming; portable, usable, cheap HD mixing.

Koolik Visuals (Detroit, MI)

Ma a detroiti Koolik-kal ismerkedünk meg.

" Im a live video artist living and working in Detroit. I work primarily with video/film to create experimental images by manipulating my footage and all kinds of found footage. My "style" can best be described as a blend between the sensual, organic, and psychedelic - i like to take people on journeys of the mind when they watch my mixing. "

AVIT Kežmarok 2009, Review




Itt egy kis beszámoló at AVIT Kežmarok 2009 fesztiválról Lucy Benson tollából és blogjáról.

" From July 23rd-25th the inaugural AVIT ‘License To Screen’ VJ Festival descended upon the somewhat unsuspecting Slovakian city of Kežmarok.
The event was the first Central European VJ festival organised by AVIT and the emphasis for the weekend was firmly on developing a network of exchange and support between artists from East and West European countries. The event had originally been scheduled for 2010, but some last minute factors saw it take place this summer, meaning a short, sharp learning curve for the organisers and a host of unexpected technical difficulties. This led to the festival being branded a ‘beta’ version of the event to be held next year. Nevertheless, for three days workshops were run, artists met, shared, jammed and the majority of performances took place more or less as scheduled.
Each day of the festival kicked off at noon with workshops and artist talks, followed by evening public performances in the city square and all-night VJ jams at club Herña; an endearingly seedy club situated in the bowels of Kežmarok Castle and looking somewhat past its hey-day (nothing describes the passing of time with quite the same poetry as a broken-down disco floor with only three illuminated tiles)...."

Dance

Drop Crossing from HOMEMADE on Vimeo.
Performance dansée avec dispositif interactif temps réel de captation de l'image et du son (30 minutes).
Dans certains états de conscience, l’être humain fait l’expérience d’un autre corps, un double de lui-même, dans lequel il vit des expériences diverses, le plus souvent sans contrôle. Parfois, les deux états du corps sont ressentis simultanément.
Captant la danseuse avec une caméra, la performer-video transforme l’image en temps réel pour la lui renvoyer et ouvrir le dialogue. L’image, fantasmatique, fait perdre à la danseuse le contact avec son propre corps, tout en la ramenant constamment à sa propre perception : la proprioception est constamment remise en cause. La dynamique de la réplique visuelle a plusieurs origines qui s’entrelacent, le mouvement induit par le corps dansant, celui induit par le geste vidéo et celui porté par le geste sonore.

" (excerpt from DJ Magazine 2007 vol.4/no.52)
'LOTTEZ is a surprise new entry in the Top 20, hailing from Alkmaar in the Netherlands. While relatively new to VJing, she made her mark by winning 2006's Red Bull VJ contest, which has given her wings into the international scene.
A music lover, LotteZ seeks to move her video work towards an ultimate synergy between music and visuals. To achieve this goal she has worked with DJ's, dancers, poets and even an opera singer on previous projects.
Now you can find her gigging frequently in clubs around Amsterdam and Utrecht, and also at the Utrecht literary festival.' "
