New Footage Releases: Alice in Pixelland

Somewhere, over the rainbow…

Sometimes finding the right content to fit the mood seems like following a never ending yellow brick road. You feel like you have to fight of flying monkeys and douse green women in water. All the while surrounded by dancing midgets in some sort of munchkin land.

But with these new packs it's going to be piece of cake to defeat wicked witches east, north, west and south. Just click your heels and say: There’s no place like home.

You can call Laak a wizard, because, because, because…. Because of the wonderful things he does.

Schneefeld will get you, and your little Toto.

You can find Mikkel in a land you have heard of, once in a lullaby.

Onwards! To 4K and Beyond the Infinite

Club3D is a hardware company that, aside from making AMD and Nvidia graphic cards, make a lot of useful adapters, dongles and gadgets. For instance we’ve been using the Club3D USB to DVI dongles quite a bit to add an extra highdef output to a laptop setup.

So when we heard that they make a dongle which can extend a single Displayport output to 3 Displayport outputs, we just had to order a few units for testing. We simply can’t resist a fancy new dongle.

Here’s the nitty gritty on this little gadget.

Reactive Visuals Using Only Resolume, Tutorials to Boot

A while back we had a whole thread on making visuals with Resolume. So we already knew it was possible.

But to see a whole music video based on the concept is still taking it to the next level. Coming to you courtesy of Masanori Yamaguchi (aka Reelvision), this wonderful piece of minimal glitch design manages to walk that elusive fine line: reactive without becoming repetitive, visually interesting without becoming cluttered.

Perhaps best of all, he's not afraid to share with the rest of the class.

Resolume Update 4.1.8 & Happy 2014!

Here is the first Resolume release of 2014! Version 4.1.8 fixes a few critical bugs, and the Mac installer is now signed with our Apple Developer ID so it will install without complaining on Mac OS X 10.8 and 10.9. We are still working on a few fixes for 10.9 Mavericks but those require a bit more time and will be released in version 4.1.9.

Hit that download, then read the short releases notes:

[FIXED] Crash when setting autopilot for individual clip and switching to non-empty deck
[FIXED] SMPTE delay causes weird jumps around the 1 (and 2 and 3 and...) minute mark
[FIXED] Arena doesn't remember DMX Preferences
[FIXED] Clip menu does not always work for active clip
[FIXED] Crash on shutdown with windowed output

Happy New Year Everybody!
