nice work Scott! i particularly liked the bit where the people walking changed speed depending on the sound.

thanks sandyb! :guinness:
i have to be careful about which vids are temporally effected by the sound, something work and some don't. the first clip i'm not so sure works well as it just looks like the frame rate is struggling, but the "atomic march" ladies works pretty good.

What do you use to get the music to affect the video? Max + Jitter?

hey felix! nothing so complex, i remember giving the demo version of max a whirl a few years ago and i was all :confused: and :eek:

its quartz composer for all the visuals, the newest version (it comes as a part of the developer tools (xcode) with Mac OSX) has some awesome patches in it and its stability is second to none.

before starting this project i tried a few VJ apps like VDMX, Modul8 and one other whose name slips my mind. none of them had the stability nor the processor efficiency to do what i wanted. then i tried Quartz and the interface has a modular patching metaphor (eg want something to oscillate back and forth in 3d space? plug a LFO in to the Z position of a sprite) and it is just so goddamn efficient, i can run up to four layers of video, some animated graphics and have ableton live running an instance of absynth, all the effects i want AND be recording to disk and my MBP doesn't miss a beat.

so to get the video reacting to the sound i put in a audio-in module, followed by a math (to bring the audio in numbers up or down) and patch it into the external timebase parameter of the video clip (thats a bit simplified). i also set it up so i can modify the amount of effect with the midi controller.

the only thing its missing is its ability to record video to disk, so the recording process is a bit convoluted but for videos at 640 X 360 it works ok....

Oh man, I've got to try that! I've already got the dev tools installed...I always figured that "a graphics program" was going to be way over my head.

It actually kinda sounds rather Max-ish but for video (so Jitter-ish?). I definitely am going to have to play with this as well. :sb: :sb:

hey everyone, thanx for your kind words & support, it does mean a lot :sb:
there are heaps of tuts out there for quartz do some googling and you'll be an expert in no time!

@Chris - the next one will be a DarkVisionMedia exclusive i promise! this one was supposed to be it but i got carried away and it turned into 20mins on me
:eek:

thanks for the vade info andreas! i grabbed his plugins, the screen capture one might be an answer to my capture issues... will have to do some testing... and the blur looks like fun, its always been a hungry effect but this might make it interesting.

thanx again everyone :love:
