FreeJ aims to be a digital instrument for video live sets, featuring real-time rendering of multi-layered video and chained effect filtering directly on the screen. FreeJ treats every video source as a layer, making then possible to dynamically apply on each a chain of filters, loadable as effect plug-ins and easily customizable. 
Layers are planned for rendering of analog video input, digital movie files, image bitmaps, sound scopes, texts and eventually more. FreeJ is being developed in the hope to provide the GNU community with a free, modular and highly customizable application to perform video live sets, based on a GPLed framework that lets anybody implement his own filters concentrating simply on the dsp algorithm developed and furthermore to combine them over any supported layer.
