Im currently working on a little system to do this sort of thing. A fully scriptable modular engine that offloads all hardwork onto the graphics card leaving the CPU free to do all sorts of hardcore model generation (And with a gig of high speed RAM and an Athlon 64 behind it all its surprising what you could generate). Also found its possible (on an Athlon 1800+) to get 6 videos streaming of harddisk with simple additive mixing (there is so much spare graphics time available that far more hardcore 2D convolution filters are possible).

I'm a long way off getting it going though ... just don't have the time. But im redundant from the end of february so may have a bit of spare time :Wink3:

I'm looking for some software that you can 'mix' films just as you would mix music, what's the best way to do this on a pretty good vaio?

youd have to rip the film from a dvd or something, and then convert the bits you want to avis or movs and then you could mix the files using a vj app..

I don't know anything about this field, but I love visuals and think they really make a difference to a good party/gig.
I'm in a psychedelic funk band (called Jaberwok) and we gig in and around Oxford and London. We have a guy that puts up his fluoro paintings behind us, but have no projections as yet. If anyone's interested in trying out their ideas, practising, or indeed joining us more full-time, then let me know (PM is fine). We would contribute from any money that we made on the night.
We've got a good gig coming up at 93 Feet East on the 6th Feb in aid of the Tsunami Earthquake Appeal. A nice venue if anyone wants to try it out.

Hey Rorymonster
I mix video images together to create trippy visuals,also using a video camera to create feedback effects,subject matter includes nature shamanism psychedelia heaven and hell,
love to do backdrops for bands of a psychedelic nature,spent a few years in Oz with these guys ww.paganlovecult.com running projections and magic,check it out,maybe some of you have met them,lucky peeps sitting under the shade of an acacia!
i am in the Uk for the summer at least and am interested in work in london or bristol and festivals etc,I am willing to do some stuff very cheaply as i sell my hand blown glass pipes and stuff when i'm gigging,

If you or anyone else is interested drop me a pm

anyone know of a freeware VJ app? resolume looks the don, but somewhat out of my price range. not too bothered about loadsa fancy features - just wanna give it a go..

if you go to the resolume site you can download a fully functional 14day demo - when it expires just download it again - easy!
