I’m feeling productive tonight but don’t quite want to take on any coding projects, so I thought I would write up some thoughts that have been running through my head on performance, VJing, and user interface.

Joshua Goldberg got me hooked on VJing when showed me his app Dervish and gave me source code to its Max/MSP/Jitter patch back in 2001 or so – before I knew anything deep about Jitter at all. Dervish was a real eye opener for many reasons, but most importantly If it was not for him, […]

CRT emulation

These images are not taken from an image of a CRT screen, but are synthesized entirely within Quartz Composer.

v002 Movie Player FFT analysis

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

v002 Movie Player with FFT Audio Analysis Demo from vade on Vimeo. A user suggested I add audio analysis to the movie player plugin. Turns out Apple has some pretty easy APIs to add FFT analysis to your QT movie playback code, so I implemented it tonight. Its a bit rough, but this is nice […]

A question of quality…

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

Update: I’ve re-tested Resolume with the latest available update – 3.0.1 at the time of this writing, and some results have changed: So there was a question on the VDMX forum regarding output quality of various VJ softwares, and questioning which is best. I decided to do a little test of Resolume Avenue, Modul8, VDMX […]
