- VJing using Quartz Composer (30 Nov 2013)
Quartz Composer is a node-based visual programming language provided as part of the Xcode development environment in Mac OS X for processing and rendering graphical data. Due to it’s lightweight implementation, and ease of integration into VJ software like VDMX, Resolume, CoGe, and custom tools like Quartz Composer Performer, QC has become a staple of the VJing community.
- DVJing using Live + VIZZable (28 Nov 2013)
Yesterday I talked about VJing using VIZZable and Live, mainly concentrating on the new features in version 2.1, notably the ability to trigger video clips in session mode. Recall, previously video clips could be arranged only in arrangement view. However, with the new [clipPlayer(audio)] module, video clips can be placed on Live’s clip slots, and triggered like standard audio clips. Moreover, these video clips can be edited and warped, again as per normal audio clips. Following from Zeal’s video in which he demonstrates this, I wanted to mess about with this new feature, and see how viable it would be for live performance.
