The HTMLTexture (EX9.Texture) node is now based on version 3 of the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) and available for testing in the latest alpha builds. Thanks to MESO for sponsoring the update.

The update to CEF 3 brings the following features:

But there're also some new limitations we came across in our first tests:

  • Mouse flickers in flash files - see http://www.magpcss.org/ceforum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10688 - will probably never be fixed because of deprecation of NPAPI.
  • Our transparent flash example doesn't work anymore - and didn't find a way yet to get it working again. This is probably related to the mouse flickering mentioned above.

We encourage everyone to test the node and report issues as usual in the alpha forum.

ascii donut. again.

helo patcherpeople,

nothing fancy this time. basically exactly the same as before only that scratch better. Ah one fancy thing there is actually: the new helppatches for Renderer (EX9) and DX9Texture (EX9.Texture) plus some new girlpower\Graphics\DX9\Texture patches. Check em out. Gorgeous.

If you're new to beta 32x you should also be advised to skim the previous release notes: vvvv45beta32 not to miss anything.

And note that you still have the privileged opportunity to be among the first 10 people in the universe ever to flattr vvvv. Think ahead, this may later be a crucial point in your résumé..

have a good patch,
yours devvvvs.

it seems the only two new thing this time are:

  • Button (3d Quad/Mesh Multitouch) modules by motzi
  • SysLog (Raw Join/Split) nodey by sebl

also again have a look at the previous release notes: addons45beta321

When Thu, Jun 5th 2014 - 20:00 until Thu, Jun 5th 2014 - 20:00
Where saasfee*pavillon, Eschenheimer Tor 4, Frankfurt, Germany

A night with Alex McLean & Kate Sicchio.
Dance Performance, talk, live coded music

1) Performance "Sound Choreographer <> Body Code"
2) Talk
3) Live coded music (feat. Alex McLean & Matthias Schneiderbanger)

"Sound Choreographer <> Body Code"
by Kate and Alex

The dance performance ist a collaboration between Live Choreography and Live Coding, creating a feedback loop where the diagrammatic choreography react and reconfigure live to music, and where the dancer represents instructions in the code, which the live coder tries to edit in order to create the music. The result is a resonance through movement, perception and language, influencing one another in a live composition, forming a whole system.

Alex McLean is active across the digital arts, including as one third of the live coding band slub, co-founder of the TOPLAP (http://toplap.org/) live coding movement, generative dance music promoters Algorave, and he is research fellow in human/technology interface at ICSRiM in the School of Music, University of Leeds.

Kate Sicchio works at the interface of choreography and technology. Her work includes performances, installations, web and video projects. She has presented research at many conferences and symposia and has given artist talks at places such as Times Up (Linz), The Creative Data Club (London) and the EU Commission (Brussels). Her PhD focused on the use of real-time video systems within live choreography and the conceptual framework of 'choreotopolgy' a way to describe this work.

Matthias Schneiderbanger is an electronic musician, sonic artist and composer with min foucs on live coding, staging of electronic music, sound installations and contemporary music. He is a member of the live coding laptop ensemble Benoît and the Mandelbrots.

Free entrance, be on time! See you in Frankfurt. We hope you can make it.
