previously on VL: VL Midsummer Night's Dream

helo evvvveryone,

here is to inform you of recent updates in VL land. We're still in feature-mode as we have a few things that we need in the first release even though they are quite advanced and a typical VL user will hardly come across them. Still, we figure, a few of you will be interested in:

The Process Explorer

The avid reader of this blog and tester already knows that a stateful patch (aka data type) in VL can be used in two different ways:

  • as a single node: we call that Process Node for now
  • as a series of nodes represending the types individual member operations

The process explorer is supporting the first of those cases in that it allows you to define the order in which operations will be called for a Process node. The simplest example of where this is interesting is when you patch a node like the FlipFlop which has a Set and a Reset operation. For the case where in one frame both of them are called it is important to specify which of them takes precedence. This is what you can now do in the process explorer by simply specifying the order of the individual operations. In addition it allows you to specify for some operations to not take part in the process at all by unchecking their indicator and to show (or not) a State output pin on the node...

Prioritizing the operations of a FlipFlop

Again: this is a rather advanced topic which the casual vl user will hardly ever come across. Still having this feature improves the pro-users lives and specifically the vl core library of nodes makes of course heavy use of that feature.

More changes since last report

  • a series of fixes are in place for connection handling
  • pin order of operations is now x-based by default but can be changed manually via the signature
  • context menu is now only on rightclick (was on marquee selection)
  • the IOBox Inspektor is drawing a bit nicer
  • middleclick "jump to" now focuses the targeted operation after the patch was opened
  • you can now use the mouse thumbs-buttons navigate back and forth
  • there's a new girlpower: girlpower\Curves\SplineTree

All this and more availble now in latest alphas.

Next Steps

Same as in the previous blog-post apply + we're hoping to reach a feature-freeze soon. We basically have one bigger rework to go that is supposed to make everyones lifes easier. In short: right now in VL when you create a new patch you need to decide beforehand between making an Operation, a Class or a Record. Those are all new concepts that are not so simple to explain to someone without any programming background. That is why we're now working on a workflow where this is not the first thing someone has to understand...nuff words, you'll see when it is done..

If you want to get started right now, here is what you do:

Diving into VL

If you want to let us know that you like anything you just read...we're always up for a comment or even a flattr:

Who sunep
When Thu, Oct 13th 2016 - 19:00 until Thu, Oct 13th 2016 - 19:00
Where School of Creative Media, Run Run Shaw Creative Media ,City University of Hong Kong, 18 Tat Hong Avenue, Kowloon Tong, Hong Kong, Hong Kong S.A.R., China

MOTORSAW aka Sune Petersen (sunep) DEUTERIUM audiovisual live performance.

DEUTERIUM is a live improvised AV-performance where video is generated live with digital video feedback. The resulting image is then sampled and translated straight into audio. This flips the usual relationship between audio and visuals. This way audio is directly reflecting the image. For this performance MOTORSAW has developed an instrument that allows for live improvisation and exploration of the expression and relation between audio and video.

Free Entry

previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in August 2016

helo again,

after another month of heavy patching and coding it is time again to get an ovvvverview of what happened recently:


big one first: we're supahappy that vux updated his DX11 pack, see directx11-0.7-update which comes with smaller contributions also by sebl and gumilastik.

other updates:

there are new contributions for DX11:

Volumetric Spot Light by mburk

and the obligatory teaser by unstoppable mr.microdee fbx-sceneexplorer-teaser


there've been a couple changes to the website:

  • we updated the infos on Coordinate Systems and Using Addons
  • there is a shiny new page about Curves
  • the flickr import is working again (posting to the vvvv group on flickr imports to the vvvv.org blog)
  • contribution pages now show the category (plugin, module, effect, ...) in the topleft corner
  • blog, forum and contributions got an introductory text


Phyxelbots by Menglin (Ariel) Wang and Somya Chaturvedi

The Phyxelbots project by students of the Interactive Architecture Lab also comes with an extensive documentation of the project: http://www.interactivearchitecture.org/lab-projects/phyxelbots


this thursday i will assist tonfilm in his Rapid Prototyping for VR workshop at the lovely Retune festival in berlin. hope to see some of you there!

What the VL?

oh glad you asked, big time! all is back on schedule. please first read our vl-midsummer-nights-dream update and then: so you can now follow our daily progress again using the alpha builds and we're very happy about feedback in the alpha forum at this stage.

we're now hoping for a beta35 release including VL as a first class patching language around new-years. all the bigger concepts are in place and we're now already giving them a second spin looking at ways to improve workflows for you (ie, spare you some clicks and the need to understand every technical detail to get things going). there'll be blog-posts with updates as we progress..

ovvvver and out. anything missing? please add it in the comments. have a good patch!

Who tonfilm, joreg
When Thu, Oct 6th 2016 - 10:00 until Thu, Oct 6th 2016 - 16:00
Where GlogauAir, Glogauer Str. 16, 10999 Berlin, Germany

A detailed workshop on the possibilities of vvvv for creating VR experiences. Within the # Immersed Narratives track of the Retune Festival 2016 in Berlin.

Workshop Contents:

While you are fresh in the morning, we'll start with a condensed ~1h presentation that gives you a comprehensive overview of the current VR hype, including:

  • available hardware and platforms and how they compare
  • technical challenges
  • emerging standards of software and interaction design
  • software development challenges

Then we'll have a look at a few popular VR experiences to see what they do right and we'll discuss the different concepts.
After this inspirational part we will learn how fast and easy it is to setup a simple 3D VR scene with vvvv's OpenVR pack and develop a quick prototype of a VR experience in real-time. Here you can come up with your own ideas or we find a little project everyone likes. Due to limited hardware access we will work in small teams of about 2-5 people.

During the workshop me, joreg and dominikKoller will be there to assist you in case of patch emergencies.

Tickets & Info:
