We spoke with Marino Cecada, an italian visual designer who has been doing some out of the box work for various pop and rock acts. Where most rock shows visually rely on simple live camera registration, Marino uses Arena and some custom FFGL wizardry to take things to the next level.
This blog is about Resolume, VJ-ing and the inspiring things the Resolume users make. Do you have something interesting to show the community?

This footage release contains the work by three artists that each have a very unique approach to creating content.
Joris does it with code. His Plexus FFGL plugin comes as a bonus to the loop pack created with it.
Muzencab does it extreme. He explores the limits of visual perception and then goes well beyond them.
And VJ Hummer does it retro. As usual, he's rocking the bold graphical style that he does so well.
Do you like stringing apps together like they are sneakers? Do you like the wonderful Syphon framework, but don’t have a Mac?
Then rejoice. Thanks to the efforts of Lynn and Robert Jarvis, there is now an easy way of doing exactly that.
It's called Spout.
Suddenly FFGL effects are popping up left and right. From Oleg Potiy comes this wonderful triangle blend mode. Guaranteed to get your visual sets certified by the international hipster community, ready for posting as gifs on Tumblr.
Because we were into triangles before everybody else heard about them.
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.
