It's time for a Dubassy Triple Whammy! Yes, you read it right, the stock master pulls a hat trick. No less than three releases to make sure you get your fill. Techie LED wall filler with MagicNumbers, disco party ammo with HeyMrDJ and just downright hilarious with GrandpaDJ.

Another week, another Resolume update. Version 4.1.6 fixes a problem with OSC on Windows and solves a few Flash oddities. Hit that download!
Every day I try to make my fake smile just a little bit fakerrrrrr.
Everyone that's been around in the generative scene for a bit, knows VVVV can be used to create amazing realtime visuals.
But as with any generative software, doing a whole 12 hour show by noodling your output together was not something for the faint hearted. You knew it wasn't that hard, but could you really be bothered patching up that front end and putting in those blend modes and warping effects? Of course not, you'd rather focus on the fun parts.
Enter Elio, a prolific VVVV user who was fed up with Syphon envy and decided to take matters in his own hands: http://vvvv.org/contribution/directx-freeframegl-bridge
He has mastered the black art of sharing DirectX textures to OpenGL.
What that means in normal people language is that you can use his plugins to render your VVVV output straight in Resolume, without the need for additional screen capture workarounds! Like a live camera! At 58 fps! Which is awesome!
Read more about it in the link above, or on the thread on our own Res forum: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=10334
Add to this the recent plugins by Trypta that allow for sharing video between Touch Designer and Resolume and all of a sudden, the Syphonless part of the world does not look so bleak anymore ( Cinder/oF people, it's time to step up to the plate! )
Show us the fun stuff you're doing with these nerdy setups. We love a good nerd session. No comments »
We love making Resolume but sometimes ...
We released version 4.1.4 just 2 weeks ago but it introduced a bug in Arena which caused erratic DMX input behavior. This is now fixed in version 4.1.5.
Please download and resume normal operation. No comments »
There are currently over 7 billion people on this planet. 99.99999% of those have never heard of Resolume VJ Software. Most likely they never will.
Still we're plodding away for you, the 0.00001%. Because you matter to us. When we look up to the sky at night, we're not humbled by seeing the context of how small everything actually is. Instead we're thinking of new ways to improve your workflow or how to squash that one annoying bug.
When the sun burns out, we'll be there illuminating the darkness with bright pixels flying past at 60fps. With your help, we'll light up this world with massive glowing screens.
Resolume 4.1.4 adds new features and stomps on critical bugs. Free download
on the site, full release notes below.
Also we updated The Manual to a new format. It's now easier to find things online, and more importantly it's also available in Spanish, Chinese and Japanese. High fives to Carlos, Antonio and Haruka-san!
And of course huge thanks to all of you, from the bottom of the hearts of the whole Resolume team!

Calling all visual chefs!
Live visuals are a lot like 3 Michelin star cooking.
It's one thing to prepare a decent meal every night. It's another to serve up fresh recipes and new taste sensations to 1000s of patrons every night.
Even if you grasp the idea of turning on an oven or sautéing your onions, there's still a lot to be learned from the 3 star chefs at Resolume HQ. After all, they made the whole darn kitchen.
So come join us for another workshop session at the visual kitchen at Resolume HQ. We'll be serving starter VJ courses, projection mapping main dishes and sweet live performance desserts.
We also serve lunch.
27th to 31st May 2013 at Res HQ.

Which is the best Midi controller for Resolume? If we had a penny for every time we are asked that question, we would be
sipping caipirinhas developing Resolume on a sunny beach island resort.
But now we can finally answer it. This one!
This is a prototype of the upcoming custom Resolume controller that we have developed together with Akai.
It’s got full support for the Midi protocol, but the truly great thing is that it also has video feedback. The buttons are custom OLED buttons, that receive video data via OSC. So you can actually see what’s playing, and see a preview of your clips, with the active clip in full motion. Thumbnails are even updated in realtime when effects are applied.
All this OSC is actually controlled by the processor of an AR.Drone helicopter. After Bart ’accidentally’ broke ours (by landing it upside down from a first story building), we found out its internal motherboard actually runs Linux. We took this out and put it in the Midi controller with our own custom Linux distribution on it. This allows the controller to receive pixel data wirelessly with little to no delay.
We truly believe that this is the future of controllerism!
//EDIT April 2nd//
So to prevent people from sending emails asking about this controller two years from now, here's a little making of shot. Check out that duct tape action.
So yes, it was a hoax. Hope you all had a good laugh about it, and see you next year 14 comments »
