This short video tutorial includes some simple tips for easier and smoother transitions between clips, and better synchronization between external audio and your VJ loops. For better BPM sync results, your loops should include some action each second or half-second.
As you might already know, Resolume is one of the best choices when it comes to video projection mapping, however, it has some limitations when dealing with real-time visuals generation; maybe because of it, the Syphon/Spout texture sharing option is always there. In other words, why to create plug-ins and keep them updated when we can take advantage of another software's capabilities? So, we have an efficient and stable VJ application at hand with endless possibilities when integrated with the third-party software.
In order to create better VJ loops, you can integrate Blender with After Effects by using the Adobe After Effects Exporter add-on. In this way, you can easily mix your 3D scene with your favorite AE plug-in. Although I use Particular, you could use any other plug-in, including Mir, Form, TAO or 3D Stroke. To achieve loopable camera animations, the Follow Path constraint is a good option, then you just need to add a bezier circle, deform it, and use it as target object. If you use Particular, it is important to modify the Visibility parameter to remove unwanted particles from your loop.
People love tunnel VJ loops and the feeling of immersion they cause. What better tool than Mir to create amazing tunnels! In this short tutorial you are going to learn how to easily create a tunnel loop with Trapcode Mir. Download the source file: example.aep
