Credits: Geometrica Studio , Zeos ,FFMpeg4vvvv.


This series of patches forms part of a video mixer project im working on,
i tried to create them to easily integrate in any project, all modules have a minimal GUI,and are optimized for performance, hope people find it useful.

  • GridVideo : Allow to select Quicktime movies with vj style in the folder you choose.It includes a ffmpeg powered thumbnail generator to make things easier.
  • BPM Tap : Simple Tapper.
  • Audio Tool : Complete audio analysis with Hysteresis tool and range selector.Awesome response at the speed of sound.

at the moment there are several modules planned for release soon:

  • LFO.
  • Spreader.

    Vj Racks 1 - BPM Tap. just tap BPM button

Nice idea. This BPM tap just miss a reset button, to reset the beat on time with the music.

downloading right now!, tnks!

@lecloneur : the bpm resets itself every 4 taps so if yo start tapping with the beat it will get on sync

metrowave 13/04/2013 - 22:45

Nice job...

lecloneur 14/04/2013 - 12:15

@geometrica, yes I know but it just that if I don't want to tap but just reset the beat on a snare or on the bass for example. Need to tap once on time but not tap the beat again, well this is how I made my tap bpm. Good job anyway, looking forward to try the others modules I see on the screenshot :)

@geometrica, no news about the release of Vj Racks patches?

geometrica 27/06/2013 - 17:35

hey buddy, im quite busy right nowwith work but i can tell you that im still developing more and more modules to use them, the next release will be a grid video launches for quicktime movies, and lfo, a three layer blend system,
i will upload as soon as i can,

newemka 12/07/2013 - 08:42

Good! Thank you! I was expecting such a tool :)
I've just tried the gridvideo, unfortunately i don't manage to generate the thumbs.
Once i've pressed the Thumbs buttong in GUI, the create thumbs progress bar fill itself very fast then no thumbnails are displayed or created.

geometrica 12/07/2013 - 09:54

you must select a correct folder where the videos are inside, it only works with mov extension by now, it would be nice to know if it works for the rest ... i tried in different machines without any problem.
It should be a problem with the videofolder you select pretty sure.
try it and tell me about it.

newemka 12/07/2013 - 12:00

You're right! I was suspected my video folder too. I've created a new folder and added some videos in order to try. It works good! Now i have to figure out why didn't work with my original video folder, maybe there's something to see with the folder attributes..

szbz216 19/08/2013 - 07:56

could it works with sounds visualizing? If it works then how to? Please give me a hite,I try to workout in Resolme but the sounds visualizing doesn't work.

geometrica 19/08/2013 - 12:53

big up geometrica!!! saludos desde Barcelona

Hi@geometrica!I think maybe @szbz216 means that how can we gets max of value from audio tool via realtime fft analys.

Element 07/12/2013 - 17:29

Hi, maybe a dumb question: the thumb creation works fine, but I can't get the videos playing(tried with the helppatch). What do I have to do to?

esnho 24/11/2014 - 18:41

Hi, I've added a simple preset tool, it needs some graphical improvement but is a rapid mod I've done for my personal necessity.
How can I send you?

geometrica 26/11/2014 - 22:29

Sure, send it to alvaro.martin@geometricatudio.com to check it out!
Actually preparing some more tools for vjing.
