C.V.A.


CVA stands for Clair Voyance Audience, and it is a MIDI controllable real-time 3D abstract imagery program. I didn't have much luck figuring it out in the past, but there now is an English manual available, link below.

Genemagic CVA+

The next generation of software from the developer of the original CVA, Genemagic, is now available.

Since this software has just been released, and is Japanese, there are not any current English instructions, so I'm not positive on all the features.  However, from what I gather thus far, the new version lets you create or import textures, either stills, or .avi/.mov digital video files, then map them on objects and manipulated in real-time, controlled by MIDI
