By now we all have figured out that analog video connections are not the way forward. Being limited to SD resolutions is just one thing. Those of you that ever tried to do a pixel mapping on a LED wall via a scan converter and an Edirol V8, you will know that pixel perfect digital connections can be better than free beer and pizza under a hot shower.
Trouble was that up until last year, there was no hardware mixer available that could mix between two digital sources. None that a normal person could afford anyway.
This blog is about Resolume, VJ-ing and the inspiring things the Resolume users make. Do you have something interesting to show the community?

Guest column by Prashant Yashpal from Activ8Media in India....
Kitty Su is a popular nightclub in New Delhi, India. For its first anniversary on 18th August, 2012, they wanted to add a visual experience to their club. They called upon their trusted partner Most Technical India, who in turn called us, Activ8Media, to create a video/projection area for the club.
This month's release is all about thinking outside of the box and finding new ways to create or project content.
First up is a new artist on the roster, Primal Eyes, who spent many a late night re-inventing the VJ standards, using stencils and a spray can. Nothing but lovely fuzzy texture feels on UrbanFuzz.
Then we have the second release from Muzencab; Cuboid who takes his eyewarping skills to the next level by creating content that you can map to any surface you like.
And then we witness the birth of the Son of Fermion in FermionReturns, the second installment of analog techno magic from Netsliders.

This months' releases showcase three very different packs, each with a very distinctive style. And that's the way we like it. Experience an acid flashback to the prehistoric age with AcidCaveman by VJ Hummer, get itchy in places with WormParade by Beeple and get run over by the impression that RoadKill by LucidHouse makes on you.
We're very happy to welcome Beeple to the Resolume footage label. If you do not already know, Beeple is Mike Winkelmann, a graphic designer from Appleton, Wisconsin, USA. His short films have screened at onedotzero, Prix Ars Electronica, the Sydney Biennale, Ann Arbor Film Festival and many others. He has also released a series of Creative Commons live visuals that have been used by electronic acts such as deadmau5, Taio Cruz, Tiësto, Amon Tobin, Wolfgang Gartner, Flying Lotus and many others. He currently releases work on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint. For more examples of his work, visit beeple-crap.com

We're very excited to bring you a guest tutorial on how to use the wonderful Tagtool for iPad as a source in Resolume, using the magic of Syphon.
But before we dive in to the techy goodness, you may be wondering what Tagtool is. I'm glad you asked!
Tagtool is a wonderfully fun application for the iPad, which allows you to unleash your painting skills, and animate and play with the result, all within a simple and intuitive interface.
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.
