We just completed the second week of Interactive Multimedia Art and, already, our projects are exciting. In the software program, Max MSP, we used Vizzie modules to create a video mixer. The “FOLLOWR” module sends data from an audio file to affect a video “XFADR,” so the final output pulses with the music. The audio track is from a previous Color Theory assignment and contains the song, “Autumn,” by Per-Olev Kindren.
The critique presentation was projected while I used the computer control panel to adjust the projected video. Since then, I have added loading objects to preload videos and set sliders with saved presets, for a more automated video mixer. The YouTube video is a behind-the-scenes Camtasia screen capture of the mixer control panel.
