Gorgeous AV Production by Bob White

Occasionally, a certain project will catch your eye. When you start watching and listening, you find yourself drifting away for a few minutes. The acoustic and the optic will blend together to one beautiful harmony.

Such a project is Intermittently Intertwined by Bob White. Take a moment out of your day, and watch this in HD with some good speakers.

We were even more amazed when we found out that the video above is actually created in realtime. It's not often someone is equally talented at music, motion design as well as coding. So we had to find out more about the project.

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.

Resolume 4.1 Released!

We rarely are as excited about an update as we are about this one. Resolume 4.1 comes guns blazing with new additions to the arsenal, and shows everyone there's a new sheriff in town. So strap on your boots and put on your cowboy hat, because here we go!

By popular demand we added masking and cropping to the Advanced Output of Arena.

Also you can now route layers directly to slices, saving composition real estate and generally making your life easier.

Syphon is now natively supported on MacOSX. No more mucking about with 3rd party plugins. Just enable it via the preferences and check them thumbnails!

You can drop the bass like Paris with the new AV example set by Dan Wise.

With the new Layer Router you can now create a clip that takes the input from any layer below. For instance you can take layer 1 and and display it again as layer 4 but perhaps smaller or with a different effect. This is also really handy to create picture in picture compositions. Because the world needs more picture in picture effects.

This is a long wish come true. Like, over 10 year wish come true. Ever since Composite Station, we wanted to have a Japanese version of Resolume, and now that dream has finally come true. Konichiwa, Resolume-san! Thanks to the Projection Mapping Association of Japan.
