Here we go,

this is vvvv beta40, combining the coziness of vvvv beta with the latest version of VL - the self proclaimed "future of visual programming".

Highlights of this release:

  • A fix for working with Spout and DX11
  • Update to the latest version of VL

Through the integration with the latest version of VL, we're now again on par with the VL version that comes with vvvv gamma. This means that with vvvv beta40 you can now use the same latest versions of nugets, that you can use with the vvvv gamma 2020.1.x series.

Why should you update? Because this gives you access to the latest developments on these libraries:

  • VL.OpenCV
  • VL.Audio
  • VL.MediaFoundation
  • VL.Elementa
  • VL.Devices.RealSense
  • VL.Devices.Astra
  • VL.Devices.Kinect
  • VL.Devices.Kinect2
  • VL.Devices.AzureKinect
  • VL.Devices.Nuitrack
  • VL.Devices.LeapOrion
  • VL.Devices.WinTab

and so many more.

To learn how to install nugets please consult this documentation.

EDIT 18 02 2021:
Replaced beta40 with beta40.1, because an issue emerged that made the installer of beta40 to fail under certain conditions. So beta40.1 is exactly the same as beta40, except with the installer issues fixed.

Evvvveryone,

is happy, that we're finally looking at a candidate for beta40, which will ship with the latest and may i say greatest integration of VL to date that is 2020.1.4!

For the latest changes in VL, please consult the vvvv gamma series 2020.1.X changelog.

Most notably this gives you access to all the latest goodies that are popping up as .NET nugets lately. Yes, we're still missing a convenient overview of those, but meanwhile a search for VL on .nuget.org gives you an idea. Still wondering how to use those? Watch this tutorial on How to use Nugets to find out.

So please test this against your current projects. Make sure that everything is running as expected. If not, please leave a comment below or let us know in the forum.

Hello everyone!

We are pleased to announce that from now on VL language design ideas will be specified in public.
This allows you to see

  • which areas we identified to work on (quests)
  • what ideas we came up with to fix those issues (proposals)
  • which proposals got favored over other proposals (decisions)
  • which proposals got moved onto which milestone

But it also allows you to join forces with us. Since in the end, it's all about your patches, we appreciate your feedback.

We decided to start clean: For now, we didn't throw all our language ideas into this repository. In its current state, we only see issues that came up in the last days, so the selection of issues is quite incomplete. Other ideas that might be more important and didn't come up in these days will eventually make it there as soon as they come up again.

We'll address quests by you or us with proposals that might be fresh or have been around for some time. We'll try to communicate different approaches and the pros and cons. And we'll try to single out very few issues that are just too promising to not having a shot at. Changing the language is quite hard, so expect an insane ratio of proposalsThatSoundNice / featuresComingSoon.

We were quite impressed by how this was handled by the C# Language Design Team. So we copied the approach.

Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between the language and ways of expression within the language. You just search for a way to address a certain problem. How would I structure my patches? We'll allow these so-called design patterns to be discussed in this repository as we want the language to be able to follow well-established ideas on how to solve certain types of problems. Here is an example.

But for now: Welcome to the club! \o/

Because why not,

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

Again no real highlights 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!

Previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in April 2020


So where were we...

...right, we just released vvvv gamma 2020.1.3, the 3rd bug-fix release. Before that, we saw some impressive work by idwyr, ravel and andresc4 at the last worldwide meetup.

And all the time we're still heavily concentrating on VL.Stride, where we're making good progress and hope we can have at least some more demos out soon, before, obviously, we can't wait to give it into your hands. Meanwhile, the best way for you to prepare for its arrival is to make sure you feel comfortable with vvvv gamma. For which we have prepared a series of:

If those are not enough, be sure to not miss the weekly vvvv gamma therapy sessions run by domj.

But VL.Stride is not the only thing that is cooking: The last weeks we've also put a lot of effort into providing first-class support for depth cameras: Kinect v1, Kinect2, Azure Kinect, Orbbec Astra, Intel RealSense, the Nuitrack API and the Ultraleap Motion. Expect a separate blogpost and non-prerelease nugets for those soon...

Next step according to the roadmap is improving networking...

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.

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.


Christine Meyerhofer & Nils Weger

Location: Frankfurt / Offenbach
ravel & phlegma
https://christinemayerhofer.de/https://nodeforum.org/people/nils-weger/

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.
