We knew Resolume could be used for creating content. We filled a few hours in the early morning just playing around with lines and solids ourselves.
But we had no idea about how far it could be taken. You took us on trips to strange and awesome places of geometric meditation. Others went to dark and scary lands of broken glitch and thunderstorms. Some of you actually brought back postcards of landscapes filled with wonderful creatures.
It was amazing. Best of all, because the .avc file had to be shared, it was a great learning experience as well. If you want to know how a particular look was achieved, you can just download the comp and see for yourself.
Next time somebody says Resolume does not have enough effects, we can just point him or her to this thread.
But of course you all want to know who won, so here are the winners:
First place: "Comp Entry" 1 by Liam_Blend
We would play this on any screen, at any party, at any time. It's got everything a clip needs: detail, color, contrast, depth, rhythm and lots of black. We wonder if it makes coffee too.
Second place: "Sad cosmic" owl by VJ Biolume
Because sad cosmic owl is sad. And cosmic.
Of course there was so much good material to pick from, so here are the honorable mentions:
"2colortech" by dirtyjohnlv
This was our favourite for a big part of the competition. Bold, energetic and full of contrast.
"Cosmic interference" by digital:snot
The first one that made us open the composition and check how it was done. Always a good sign.
"AKIBA NE-ON" by nkgw-a
It's interesting that glitch was considered cutting edge and avantgarde not too long ago, but now it's almost old-school. We like old-school.
"TEST 04" by VJ Granda
VJ ammo that will kill on any screen. Boom! Headshot!
"Mhlzhn21" by mahlzahn
Mahlzahn deserves an honorable mention if only for the fact that about half of the entries in the comp are his.
"Generative visuals" by aleksey notkin
This one made us doubt if it was actually made in Resolume. Even after the comp was uploaded we're still not exactly sure how some of it is done.
"8-bit avatar generator" by cosmowe
If you're over 30, you have a soft spot for anything 8 bit.
"Resolume contest" by Rebeloverlay
Spencer is disqualified because he already is the best selling artist on our label and he gets his arena serials for free anyway.
"Silent Light, Wholly Light" by J Benj
Bart swears that this video is filled with big morphing Darth Vader faces. We don't see it.
"Contest2" by SHQ
We had a few landscape entries, but the paper boat made this one complete.
Congrats to the winners, and a huge "thank you" to everyone who participated. You're amazing people, that's what you are.
A superb compo folks and I'm (hoping to be the first) to congratulate every single entry for teaching me so much more about Resolume then I thought I knew. Some of the chaining of effects I clearly had not even considered!
(can we now have presets in Resolume please guys?!).
All I now have to do is clear my diary for the next month and dissect each and every AVC file (thank you all!) and great work Liam!
Wow thanks resolume There were loads of worthy winners there! I think collectively we've blown all previous expectations of what the software can do. I wouldn't have even considered turning up to a gig without my HD full of clips before this competition, I might accidentally on purpose leave it at home next time!
Thanks again to the resolume guys and i look forward to putting something together for the shop.
Congrats to all winners and again thnx to the team for pushing us to give the best!
And for myself, a minor but important thank you to the post of Eyesupply, he showed me the way of using the effects the right way which I'm using them now! So thank you!
