...since we're terribly behind schedule regarding the release of a new website for vvvv.org (and we know that it will still take a while), we've created a preliminary site at:
This is mostly so that we can provide people who are new to the world of vvvv with a simpler entry point to our universe. You'll see that the site focuses mostly on vvvv gamma, which makes most sense for new people to explore. Obviously the existing vvvv.org remains our main portal to share news and updates with everyone. We consider visualprogramming.net a temporary landing page for vvvv gamma.
If you're old enough to remember, there is this thing called electronic mail (short: e-mail). In a classic retro-move we've also recently started an e-mail newsletter which you can sign up to from that page. Scroll to the bottom and find it in the left corner. Signing up will give you peace of mind to not miss any happenings around vvvv. Typically one mail per month.

Once again on short notice:
vvvv heads are meeting for a show and tell with drinks. Everyone is welcome! This time we have presentations by:
We'd also love to hear from you: If you have something to show or talk about, please do so! Bring your projects, demos, works-in-progress and show us what you're patching with!
If you feel like, please rsvp on our Gettogether page!
Should be from around 20h30 Berlin time or a bit later...
Just in time!
Only a whopping 6 years and one and an half months after its first mention during Keynode 13 and to the day exactly 5 years after the release of the The Humble Quad Bundle, you can finally hold it in your own hands. Not exactly as the full release we had planned but as a preview:
To our own surpise we couldn't finish all the things we had planned to release today. Most notably the "windows executable export" didn't make it. We know this is a bummer, but we want to get this right and it just needs some more time.
Apart from that we figured there is no more need at this point, to keep it to ourselves. It is definitely good enough for a preview, definitely good enough to gather some feedback to incorporate into the final 1.0 release for which we take some more time to finish our plans. So let's have a look at what we got:
Besides staying true to its nature of being a an easy to use and quick prototyping environment, vvvv is also a proper programming language with modern features, combining concepts of dataflow and object oriented programming:
While for now the number of libraries we ship is limited, the fact that you can essentially use any .NET libary directly mitigates this problem at least a bit. Besides there is already quite some user contributions available in the wip forum and here is what we ship:
To accommodate for the fact that from now on we essentially have 2 products, we added two main categories to the forum:
The existing question, feature, bug, general sections were moved into vvvv beta, and the vvvv gamma section got its own question, feature, bug and general sub-sections. Note that by default the search is constrained to the category you're currently viewing. When you're using vl in beta, still feel free to ask questions in the beta forum. We'll handle that.
Head over to this forum section to watch some video tutorials:https://discourse.vvvv.org/c/tutorials
We've previously announced the upcoming pricing model for vvvv gamma, which we're currently refining and we'll update you on changes to it soon.
Until further notice, the previews of vvvv gamma are free of charge but due to its preview-nature we don't recommend using it in commercial scenarios yet.

Where Kraftwerk Berlin, Köpenicker Str. 70, 10179 Berlin, Germany
Latent Being is the new site-specific installation by Refik Anadol,
pioneer in the aesthetics of artificial intelligence.
The work responds to the cathedral-like concrete vastness of Kraftwerk,
a former East Berlin powerplant. Visitors will walk through the four-chapters of the immersive,
interactive environment, in which data relating to the city,
the architecture and the visitors will be transformed into hallucinogenic,
large-scale LED screen paintings. By using a cutting-edge deep learning algorithm
to create this interactive AI-human constellation,
Anadol challenges our perception of ‘space’ and our relationship with AI machines.
vvvv looks back on a history spanning almost 20-years of wonderful projects. Many are the first of its kind and have influenced and defined trends in creative coding, digital arts, projection mapping, and interactive installations.
Over time we've become so familiar with all of this, we forget that many people aren't.
To address this, we proudly present our first showreel:
This video is even safe to share with your friends.
See credits or Vimeo description for the full list of projects.
Thanks to everyone and happy projecting. We'll probably do this again next year.
It's been a while since the b38.1 release. But finally we're getting ready to release an update to vvvv beta. Here is the release-candidate, meaning it has all we wanted to add for beta39. We only want to give you a chance to test this with your current projects so we have a last chance to squash any new bugs, you may encounter.
Here are the highlights of the upcoming release:
If you're also using VL already, good for you, because here you'll find even more goodies you will benefit from:
Besides those, it is important to understand that with VL you also have access to numerous more libraries that have been released recently. A lot of new packs these days come as nugets. For an overview, see VL packs on nuget.org and you can use them all in vvvv beta, via VL...
So please give this release candidate a spin and be sure to report your findings, preferrably in the forum using the "preview" tag, or also just by posting a comment below.
Previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in September 2019
So another month passed,
and the promised executable export from vvvv gamma is still not available. Bummer, but all we can say is, this is not how it was planned! We got caught up in a few things. November it shall be, most definitely...Still be sure to always test with the latest vvvv gamma preview which we're continuously updating. Also the first 3 beginner tutorials are now available:
and besides those here is a growing playlist of HowTos. Hope this can finally get you started proper.
Also we're making good progress on our way to integrating the Xenko 3d engine with vvvv gamma and we've announced an official partnership with Xenko.
On the beta front we have a release candidate out. We're very happy about your feedback that helped us get rid of many buggers before we call it a release. As of this writing we're quite positive this can now happen soon.
Teaching Patching happened and it was great! You can watch the whole stream to hear interesting accounts of people involved with teaching vvvv. On day two we got to talk more about how we could take this further. Current developments are organized on github...
And if you haven't seen it yet, a short video documentation about the last edition of the NODE festival was just released. Good reminder of the cozy time we had there:
A lot is happening this month, save those dates:
