A fine night it was, we came ready to record hours of original material. These are strong 4 minute segments, suitable for online viewing. Performance visuals are a challenging form to document, as they are embedded in the vibe and momentum of the night, the chemistry between the artists and the crowd, the scale of the live projection and the mass of a big sound system. The fluidity and indefinite duration of a performance is also impossible to convey in web videos, compressed in scale and klipped out of time. But, like photographic documentation of sculpture or dance, you can hopefully get a sense of what we were up to.
I was playing SD downsamples of my 1600x800 8:3 klips, and SinR8 was digitizing the mix via a DAC into his hackintosh.
VDMX beta 7.4.5 gave off a little weirdness, when an interface window refused to update itself, but playout was unaffected. Very few gremlins for such a deep, expandable performance software, but they do like to appear at the venue for some reason.
These A/V segments are all straight, no realtime effects or audio reactive inputs, just like I used to do it in GRID.
