I don't know very well the VJ scene but it looks to me the best tool so far ;) Good work !

Nice, but what I've found so far:
- Loading a texture doesn't work when effects are running. the window blocks.
- Microphone input is good, but choosing the input would be even better...

rzr vote.

- Open music file also blocks the application.
- Some preset show something, but are really dark. The faders do nothing.
I'm on Windows 7 x64 here with a Radeon 5650M and recent drivers btw.

No visuals for me just black screens :(

Does it support anything other than screenspace effects?

Nothing wrong with screenspace effects!

oh and hello xt95 to razor!

@raer : just downsample the resolution (like 1x1) when you want open a file/texture .. I will fix that on a future release ... and you can load a mp3 if you want ! (the blue button in the left on the red button !) The faders do nothing -> depend of the scene !

@71M : what is your CG ?

Don't want to complain. Nice project and all! It just has some problems for me that make it unusable...

just downsample the resolution (like 1x1) when you want open a file/texture

I don't quite get what you mean. Is this about the "effects too dark"?

and you can load a mp3 if you want !

No. I can't. The application blocks (the browse dialog is unusable, the application can only be force-closed via the taskmanager). Same with loading textures...

Some suggestions:
- Only show faders when there's a parameter in the shader. You can scan the shader code and show the appropriate amount of controls.
- Add comments to the shader code containing a name for the parameters that you can show in the GUI.
- You seem to be able to run 2 instances of effects, so you could as well implement crossfade between them.

FYI: You need a beefy GPU, people. Integrated crap won't cut it...

@raer : ok ok, thx for the report ! i will fix it soon !

the browse dialog is unusable -> try to downsample the resolution in the visual manager before open something !

k. Btw. Tried it on a Nvidia Quadro 600 with 297.03 drivers and got nothing but 3 black screens...
added on the 2012-12-21 11:54:10 by raer raer
Really interested in this as I am working on something similar. I'm getting three black screens though. Well.. two black and the one in the middle I can make go white with the black/white slider. Do I *need* a MIDI controller to get anything out of this, ie: to select scenes?

I'm using NVIDIA GT650M btw.

Win8, GTX 260 - exactly the same results as Evil Paul.

Cute attempt (no bugs here, though no doubt they're there). Now try again in order to make something actually usable in any way :)

Hey.. it also turns out that, over 24 hours after I thought I stopped using the program, it still had a process (VisualLiveSystem.i386.exe) running in the background and taking up most of one of my cores...

Can't recreate this bug, but thought I'd let you know
added on the 2012-12-22 21:15:01 by evilpaul evilpaul
Doesn't work on Win7
Nvidia 9800 1GBvram.
2x 2.9 ghz + 6GB ram.

Well well ... I'm really disapointed, seem not run on any Nvidia hardware ... i will fix that the faster i can :/ I'm sorry for losing your time and thx everyone for your reports !
added on the 2012-12-25 02:06:05 by Anat Anat
wanted to give it a chance but ... doh, you should notice users it is pretty alpha stage...

xp;gf quadro1500fx, - black fx screens, hangup while requester for audio file is open.

win7:gf 9800gt - black fx screens.

i think you should start with setting up a bugtracker, forum etc. people will help you pinpoint some (many:) issues.

i am always interested in seeing scenerelated vj tools (eg neon), evilpaul, i guess youre next to show something?

u2: no it is not the best tool and apparently yes, you dont know vj scene ;]

someone got it working?
added on the 2012-12-25 06:40:49 by comankh comankh
under win7: can't load image while loadint texture for fx.
looks like long road ahead.

Installed it in my Win7 64Bit, started the program: I see a "turntable" (?) with a rotating cube, but everything else freezed. I could not click anything (even not the taskbar or start menu), the system showed no reaction anymore. Ctrl-Alt-Del allowed me to open the task manager and kill the process.

Well, it doesnt work here.

tried on a third config (win7, quad, 9500gt), same results. shite, I would say it's ver 0.1 not 1.0 ... xt95, you wrote about visuals you come upon live shows - even if they're sometimes fugly vid loops they actuallly work.

win7x64/nvidia660 - doesn´t show a picture, and is far from responsive as well(even its file open dialogue is affected)
added on the 2013-01-14 01:01:06 by T$ T$
ok. finally found a machine which runs it flawlessly. limited set of effects, awkward postprocess window (and the gui in general). while it reacts smooth (when you'll finally found config able to run it) it is really hard to treat it like standalone vj soft unless you want to bore the audience to death. might be a starting base for GLSL coding/vj experiments though.

Wondering if someone get it working, seems it need some work, but good idea.
