Live mixing video captured via a Canon DSLR camera connected to my computer via USB. Using ExtraWebCam as the camera interface, 3 different camera resolutions are listed in the Live Feed section of Isadora. It is then a simple matter of using the correct actor in Isadora to allow you to feed the live video as past of your video composition.

Using only native Isadora shape elements, freeframe fxs and logic (more on this later HERE)..
This video uses real-time collision detection to control a number of display attributes.
You can see both the Orb change in color and size when the collision between it and the floating Rect is true, as well as; the Rect it self changes.

Using a custom midi controlled Isadora show, I triggered and mixed a series of pre-developed real-time video composites. The show was designed with one common element between all scenes, a additive red bar that would pan horizontally to the rhythm of the music.
I used this red saturation as a trigger for 2 DMX par cans with red gel filters, that would activate anytime the color the corresponding side was within range.. giving the effect of extended projection reach.. or at least a larger stage space.

Media Installation

A long dark hall connects 2 dance floors. Its a Halloween party, and creatures slowly flow down the hall. A mix of laser, UV, video, and amber light organically fills the space.
 I just completed this installation a couple days back. It incorporated control of 3 DMX fixtures (1 being a 12 channel blue laser), live video capture, live video analysis (color levels, and intensity), generated video layers, and custom pre-rendered/mixed footage.
Before I say much more about the installation, I just want to thank the Suma crew for getting me involved. As always you are great people to work with.

If you are like me, you are still using a windows machine and are becoming frustrated by the massive number of new Mac applications for VJs, and you are wondering what is available for your windows PC. I am going to try to pull all the best windows video and interactive development resources I can find together in one place, I have come across some great tools during my search for a windows equivalent to Syphon, I you know of one PLEASE let em know.

liveDraw-releaseV03.JPG

Here is a little drawing tool that uses video feedback loops to create sustained images, inspired by a patch/post I came across in the Isadora forums, this tool combines a number of units from my soon to be released  Video SYSt3m.  I will be expanding on this drawing tool to allow variable mapping to match other modules in the SYSt3m framework. In the meantime this tool includes an FX module that can have the variables controlled/mapped to data from the LFOs. Simply activate the LFO, select an output channel, and enter that channel number in the chan column beside the variable data row (V1 etc.) I would love to get some feedback on this data mapping method.
