Create Visuals with Resolume and Win an Arena License!

Post by Joris » Fri Feb 01, 2013 16:08

Update: Thanks everybody for making this the best thread ever on our forum! Competition is now closed and the winner is announced here.

We love generative visuals. Besides the endless options during live performance, the creative process is different as well. There's something very satisfying about tweaking a parameter and immediately seeing the results. You can get into a creative flow that is not possible when you're stuck waiting for ram previews or play blasts.

We love it so much, we made the CalculatingInfinity loop pack from scratch using nothing but the built-in effects and sources of Resolume. To spread the love we thought we put together a little contest to go with it.

To participate, all you have to do is fire up Resolume and go crazy with the sources, effects and blend modes. Make combinations that you didn't think were possible. Stack effects as high as wedding cake to make something totally new out of that Solid Color. Flip the order of the blend modes and see what comes out. Above all, have fun with it!

Don't think it's possible? Don't know where to start? Here's a tutorial on how to make some tasty content from scratch:



The only rule is simple: you can only use the built-in effects and sources of Resolume. No still images, videos or webcam footage.

Record your output, upload it to Vimeo or YouTube and post it as a reply on this thread. Don't forget to Include your .avc as a zipped attachment.

Amaze us. First Runner Up walks away with a brand spanking license of Avenue. The Winner walks away with Arena and gets to release his or her work on the label.

Now go and make us proud!

Drop Shadow??

This should be fun. The first few hours of my nights are always playing with different effects

Yeah this is a really cool Idea. Going to be good to see what people have done.

Can you use version 3 or does it have to be 4?

Why, would you post a distraction like this, nearly half the shows I do these days are from pure internal, is there a limit on effects to be used as well? ie only the standard collection of Resolume effects and sources?

It, kind of rendered a little clunky, might have to revisit in studio for a better copy but at least it's a start to the comp, I plan to put together a couple and post in one AVC once done
