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.
This blog is about Resolume, VJ-ing and the inspiring things the Resolume users make. Do you have something interesting to show the community?

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. Comment »
