Just when you think it cannot get any better,

here is the second bug-fix release for vvvv gamma! Available for download and purchase. Now!

I don't think this one has a highlight other than fixing a few nasty buggers. So be sure to update, there shouldn't be a reason not to. If you disagree, please let us know in the comments here or in the vvvv gamma forum.

For the full list of changes, see theLog of Changes.

Happy patching!

We got Kat! A visual artist using vvvv since 2012 for interactive installations, VJ, Real time graphics and video production. Last 4 year I was also working as a vj in clubs/festivals and developed my own tool for vjing using WPF and vvvv. I will show the inside of the WPF project and vvvv patches to demonstrate how both communicate together, using midi controllers and OSC.

Travelling to severals music festivals and building light sculptures for dance floors inspired us to develop this light control software. Many years of experiences in live performing helped us to create this modular interface optimised for generative visuals.

Next to texture based animation you can work with 3d geometry in virtual space to create visuals on LED light matrices. This technique is very efficient by adapting to new light set ups and is giving a great room perception. The live performance interface is based on the Runtime Model by dottore model-runtime-editor-design-pattern. For the Show to luminale 2020 we integrated the timeline Tilda by nsynkhttps://discourse.vvvv.org/t/vl-tilda/17644 and created the light show „Binärtransformation - digitized life“https://www.luminale.de/projekte/digitales-leben

Unfortunately we didn’t had any visitors at Luminale 2020 thanks to corona. So we are waiting for the next change to build it up again.

Andres is a vvvv user since beta23. Rather than an artist he defines himself as a Maker. With a background in graphic design and electronics, he uses vvvv as a tool for all kind of hardware interactions, VJing, and professional work. He will show us a few of his projects and experiments made with vvvv, from fun electronics projects, dmx and pixel mapping, drones + shaders, vjing, and interactive lasers.

Here is!

The first bug-fix release for vvvv gamma is available for download and purchase now!

The highlight of this release is the updated helpbrowser which makes it even easier to find help. It now allows you to search for terms across all different types of help content.

Searching for a term now shows you available content across all types of help

Want to know more about the different types of help the helpbrowser is offering? Here we're trying to follow the excellent suggestions we found in: The documentation system. A must-read for anyone interested in the topic of documentation!

Just a quick heads-up!

Everybody's favorite gray book has moved to a new location:

No change in content or structure at this point. Still a lot to do...

As you can spot in the top-right corner, we also have a Change Log section where we're keeping track of the changes and releases of vvvv gamma from now on.

Ovvvver and out.

Building a game from scratch

Host: joreg

Once you're familiar with the basics of a programming language you need a little challenge. Building a game from scratch is usually a good way of diving deeper. Games have all the aspects of proper applications. They require you to handle user input, manage the game logic, maybe keep a high-score or save a state to disk so it can be recalled the next day.

So in this webinar we're going to build a simple game and along the way get familiar with how to structure the different components of applications.

Previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in March 2020


Here we are now,

vvvv beta just got a bugfix 39.1 release. Nothing big, just getting rid of some annoyances and preparing for the upcoming beta40 which will include latest VL!

We're a month after the initial release of our revvvvolution in visual live-programming. We got some nice feedback on Hacker News, noobusdeer and yar are running a weekly series (in Russian) about it, domj started a therapy session for it and i believe that all the webinars we ran so far were quite well received. This is why we have some more upcoming:

It seems the initial release of vvvv gamma also runs quite stable so far. We haven't heard of any showstopper buggers, which allows us to already prepare the upcoming releases. We've outlined our next steps on the roadmap page.

Most heavy lifting at the moment is happening towards wrapping VL.Stride into an easily usable 3d engine for everyone. Still hard to make any predictions regarding a preview release, but we hope to at least be able to show some progress soon.

So you see, we're far from bored...In case you are, here are two things for you to watch:

And finally, if you need a vvvv specialist or are one yourself, check out this new listing of vvvv specialists available for hire.

A couple of updates

helo evvvveryone,

this is vvvv beta39.1, a bug-fix release. It does not yet include the anticipated update to latest VL, which we save for upcoming beta40. We just want to get another stable version out before such a bigger update that including latest VL will mean.

Remember that via VL you have access to many more goodies. Here is a convenient list of VL nugets that work with this release. To learn how to install nugets please consult this documentation and then use these commands to install them:

Nugets requiring a specific version to work with beta39.1
(To use the latest version of these nugets you'll have to wait for upcoming beta40 or use gamma2020.1)

 nuget install VL.OpenCV -Version 0.2.141-alpha
 nuget install VL.Devices.Kinect2 -Version 0.1.45-alpha
 nuget install VL.Devices.Realsense -Version 0.1.7-alpha
 nuget install VL.GStreamer -Version 1.0.18-gadcd7f95e5
Nugets that do not require a specific version, but still the prerelease flag:

 nuget install VL.Audio -pre
 nuget install VL.IO.M2MQTT -pre
 nuget install VL.IO.NetMQ -pre
 nuget install VL.2D.DollarQ -pre
 nuget install VL.2D.Voronoi -pre
 nuget install VL.Animation.ParticleSystem -pre
 nuget install VL.ColorBlender -pre
 nuget install VL.ColorThief -pre
Nugets that have a proper release already and thus don't require the prerelease flag:

 nuget install VL.DBSCAN
 nuget install VL.StringExtensions
 nuget install VL.2D.Simplify
 nuget install VL.InfluxDB

If you have other public nugets that you tested to work with this release, please post them in the comments below!

Vadim used vvvv+shaders as a weapon-of-choice for ~10 years, doing high profile VJing/videomapping/installations for living (teaming with antokhio, idwyr, vux, etc. for studio projects. A few years ago he switched to the neural networks, using vvvv now mostly for integration and/or simple extra tasks. Vadim will show few examples of such usage (spout/osc integration, image pre/post-processing), as well as some key findings and achievements in general


Natan Sinigaglia

finally dottore will present the current status of VL.Elementa


Here is the plan: We'll be using again a video-conferencing platform for moderators and presenters and will be streaming out to evvvveryone via youtube and possibly other channels as well. Updates on how to use the back channel will be given. Live stream link will be provided here!

helo evvvveryone,

we're preparing for a vvvv beta39.1 release and here is a first release candidate. As you'll see in the change-log it is a rather minor update with only fixes. It does not yet include the anticipated update to latest VL, which we save for upcoming beta40. We just want to get another stable version out before such a bigger update that including latest VL will mean.

Remember that via VL you have access to many more goodies. Here is a convenient list of VL nugets that work with this release. To learn how to install nugets please consult this documentation and then use these commands to install them:

 nuget install VL.2D.DollarQ -pre

This is my talk at Ircam earlier this year, where I tried to introduce vvvv gamma to an audience not necessarily familiar with vvvv but most likely already with the idea of visual programming. Given the fact that Ircam was the birthplace of Max and PD which are still both in heavy use there.

In 25 minutes I tried to give a glimpse at vvvv by focusing on four things that I believe make it shine:

  • Loops
  • Multithreading
  • Object Oriented Patching
  • Extensibility

Also I pretended that it is completely normal to already have a 3d engine with it...

For talk description and recording of other talks see: https://medias.ircam.fr/xcc0abe
