The live video performance tool of choice gains new features:
Fine tune how compositions react to specific sounds. Isolate frequencies using the Sound Analysis Configuration panel and turn sound into movement.
Open yourself up to controlling lighting and other stage production tools, or expand your existing control of the stage into video.
We created several basic modules that you can download from the GarageCUBE online module library to get you started. For stage designers you can use the DMX Layer Fixture module to control Modul8 using a light desk.
If you are completely new to DMX and want to control lighting using a MIDI controller you can use the new Midi2DMX module.
Up to 4 live video feeds
Incorporate several view points using multiple video cameras and mix them together as you would any other media within Modul8.
Import/export MIDI and key mappings
Start every new project with a familiar feel by quickly incorporating the controls that serve you best, or share your Midi/Key mappings with your friends.
Quickly create a slide show by dragging a folder from desktop that contains images and dropping it into the Modul8 media set. Incorporate new images or edit out ones you don’t want on the fly by simply removing images for the folder.
An essential feature for most compositing tasks, blend modes allow for artistic experimentation with any image based media. Furthermore the implementation of these blend modes is very efficient, requiring very little CPU usage, so your frame rate does not suffer when your creative juices start to flow.
Wacom tablet support
The Painter module responds to pen pressure allowing you to add a natural, lively feel to your video performances.
