What happens when a bunch of artists, architects, programmers and engineers come together? A burst of creation with a dollop of technology. Minimal yet complex. Simple yet amazing. This is what Litewerkz is.
Formed by students who met at the Singapore University of Technology and Design, Litewerkz is a newish design collective- with lots of vision. Gradually growing from indoor static installations to outdoor dynamic installations, they have worked at developing themselves by welcoming new members and perspectives, every year.
This blog is about Resolume, VJ-ing and the inspiring things the Resolume users make. Do you have something interesting to show the community?

Yaaaas queen! Finally! Alley 2.0.0 can now convert your video files to DXV.We've made it ridiculously easy so your files are off blazing in two clicks, using super fast super multi-threaded super power. Of course, you can also fine tune your blend with presets and power user tricks. Check out the workflow and all the options in this Alley support article. Alley will always be free, so make sure it's part of your swiss army toolkit.
16 Bit DMX Input
You can now assign a DMX shortcut as 16 bit. Resolume will then automatically use the selected channel for coarse and the following channel for fine. Lampies will understand all the words in that sentence. Thanks Maarten!
Way Faster Adobe DXV Exporters
While we were working on Alley, we gave the Adobe DXV exporters a speed boost as well by making them multi-threaded. The more cores you have in your CPU the faster it will be.
Gl!tchy Tǝxt No More
We squashed the glitched out characters in the Text Animator and Text Block for good this time. No more weird looking text. Although the glitchy look was kind of awesome.
Grey Output Flash on Startup?
We all love a good flashy flashy, but thanks to the logs sent in by Brandon Little, Ozaer Faroqui and Thomy Hoefer, Resolume keeps a low profile during startup again and does not flash a grey frame in the output anymore.
Pasting effects would result in an extra Transform effect that couldn't be removed. Now I have loved Transformers since I was a little babbie in the eighties. I even kept loving them when Michael Bay took them and CGI'd them to death. But this many Transformers was a bit much even for me.
The interface, onscreen help and manual are now disponible en Español, in Deutsch verfügbar and 有中文.

As we tend to our alien garden, we start to find patterns everywhere. We experience glitches in our reality, as the bugs take over. And I for one welcome our new insect overlords.

Get Pattern 3 by Unit44
Now I am no math scientist, but I am seeing a pattern here.
Imagine you are driving (top down, of course) along a pristine coastline.
The wind in your hair, the world at your feet. The sun is setting, the ocean is that perfect blue. The salty air is filling your lungs up with freshness.
You smile coz life is perfect and as you muse out into the water, you see this:
Let's go on a journey of exploration and discovery. Explore this worlds' mythical tribal cultures with Laak's Ethnik 2. Go beyond this word and explore alien alchemy with Julius Horsthuis' FractalGold. And explore inner space with Video2000's zen-like meditations on minimalism Cont.
Get Cont by Video2000
A minimal pack for the maximum of the effects.
Get FractalGold by Julius Horsthuis
Fractals look different every time you look at them. Like looking at yourself in the mirror.
Get Ethnik 2 by Laak
Start packing, cause we are going on a journey!
The 6.1.0 release is a major point release, which means we added a big feature. As we announced a few weeks ago, we made it a lot easier to sync a prepared video set to the audio coming from the DJ.
If you work with a DJ that mixes on a Denon setup, you can sync every video in Resolume to every track on the players. You can read all about that in the manual. Suffice to say, this will make banging out those DJ intros and special show moments a piece of cake.
We also have a handful of bug fixes. If you're using multiply a lot, make sure you peek the warning below! Otherwise, just hit that download.
Multiply Mixer Warning
We fixed the jump cut when ejecting a clip from a multiply layer using a transition. The multiply blend now works the same as in Photoshop. So far so good! This also means that when using the multiply blend in combination with content that has transparency, the visual result will be slightly different, also in existing compositions. If you prefer the old look, you can disable the alpha channel in the content.
Hotfix! September 20th.
The Opacity fader of a layer was not working correctly when it was playing a SMPTE synced clip. Fixed in Arena 6.1.0 rev61231. Simply download Arena 6.1 again to get this latest revision.
