Audio Visual "Swiss Army Knife"
VJ™ 1.0 Professional is an Audio Visual Performance
System and studio tool. The Vector Vj Visual Performance
Engine software can be used stand alone or with the
addition of a tightly integrated hardware Human
Interface Device a.k.a. the CommandPost.
design of this system is optimized for spontaneous creation of
visually exciting graphic mixes and then displaying it to the
audience all within the same session of running the system. The
program monitors each display a different visual media file and
serve to portray what effects are applied. The program monitors
also serve to allow a quick and intuitive way to grab the layers
of content and activate them for manipulation.
At the core of this system is a specialized set of utilities,
which allow the artist Independent and precise control over the
properties of each media layer. This includes Time slider, X
position, Y position, Z position, Scale, Red, Green, Blue, Alpha
Level, Pitch, Roll and Spin. Having this level of fine grain
control over each layer of your composition provides you with a
staggering number of possibilities and permutations.
The Motion Lab is a one of a kind motion synthesis and
automation laboratory. The Motion Lab controls Automation and
functionality and can be likened to that of the flying-faders
found on audio mixing consoles in high-end recording studios.
With the Motion Lab you have the ability to apply Sinusoidal,
Square and Saw Tooth – Wave based Automation. This Automation
can be applied to each and or all of the sliders for each and or
all Active Layers independently! It is essentially like having
48 extra sets of arms and hands to mix with, that lock into the
beat and never get tired.
If you can imagine each of the above described sliders as an
instrument in a “Visual Symphony” then perhaps the motion
lab can best be described as the conductor in that Visual
Symphony. Thus each instrument "plays" a different
effect upon the visual space with its rhythmic pulse in sync
with the other instrument through the beat synchronization
feature of the Motion Lab.
Because of the efficient way Vector VJ handles these
permutations, you will have the freedom to rapidly explore,
enhance, and leverage your new and existing media in ways you
never imagined. By performing this on the fly recycling of your
media, Vector VJ can substantially improve your overall media
With Vector VJ’s palette of real-time manipulation tools,
interesting and beautiful visual compositions can be quickly
constructed and delivered to your audience up to five levels
deep, depending on system health, performance, ram and available
Robo DJ and 3D Sound objects
is the audio tool set for creating a "sound"
foundation for visual compositions in Vector VJ. This panel
allows the creation of an mp3 play list and the assignment of
sound objects to any layer(s) of choice.
The sound objects are assigned by selecting from a list of mp3
objects, then clicking on any one of the five jewel buttons,
representing the layers just below. The leftmost jewel button
will assign the sound to layer one, the leftmost program
monitor. The lower half of the panel is a list of mp3 music
files. To play a music file, select it in the list and then
click the “play” button, a vertical blue bar on the right
side of the mp3 player panel shows the progress of the song. The
song is almost over when the blue bar height is near zero. The
Dwell slider determines the duration of time over which the
music cross-fade occurs.
