Resolume 2 on the iPad! AVAILABLE NOW!

Postby bart » Fri Apr 01, 2011 10:46



Oh yes, you read it right. Resolume 2.41 is now available for the iPad!!! Mix clips the way you were used to from back in the day, on your o so shiny mobile touchscreen.

When you think about it, it actually makes you wonder why it took us so long to get it together:

1. Resolume 2.41 was made for 1024x768 resolution screens, which just happens to be exactly the size of the iPad display.

2. Resolume 2.41 doesn't use the GPU as much as Avenue, so even a device that doesn't have a modern GPU like the iPad can run it.

With the recent release of the iPad 2, we now can let the dual cores handle the work. And this makes things fly like nobody's business. That's not to say R2.41 iPad Edition won't work on the first version.

The cool part of this (for us geeks) is that we did not rewrite Resolume 2 to run on iOS, ooh no that would have been too easy. We looked at the Win32 API calls that Resolume 2 makes and we wrote a partial Windows emulator that runs on iOS so normal Windows programs can run on the iPad and iPhone. This concept is similar to WINE on linux and could theoretically be used to run other Windows on iOS too.

Check out the teaser video, and then head over to the iTunes store!

what is the likelyhood of something like this coming out?

this is neat. i'm always looking for ways to add good-quality, random-access loops into my kit. and the size of an ipad is right as an add-on

i don't have an ipad (or any idevices) but this makes me want one.

tech questions....

is this more like a low-resolution (320x240) ipad novelty or a 640x480-to-1280x720 quality loop playback device?

does it process at different resolutions (like on the pc) or is it preset to only process at a specific resolution?

some good info on what kind of performance one can expect on an ipad2 would be great.

what codecs should the media be formated in? picvideo .avi files? or mjpeg .mov? do the same rules apply on prepping clips?

what is the price? (i don't have an idevice to check out the app store with) i would be getting an ipad2 specifically for res2.4 so more info would help me understand if it is worth the investment.

"There never was much hope. Just a fool's hope."

So how did you guys pull off this video?
Is that a video file playing back on the iPad?
Is the iPhone running airplay to the Apple TV?
Great work!!
