VDMX Tutorial: Animate Parameters with LFO

Video Thumbnail

This VDMX tutorial goes in-depth with the LFO plugin and how you can use it to animate any parameter. We explain what an LFO waveform or curve is in regards to animation, how the LFO interface works, what standard curves are available to use, ways to customize your own curves, and how to automate parameters with LFO waveforms.

We show the results of assigning different waveforms as data sources to effect parameters and provide suggestions such as which curves may work best with certain parameters. There are three practical examples we go over: looping a zooming logo with the Cosine waveform, creating an infinite looping Kaleidoscope effect with the Ramp curve, and using the Random waveform as a data source for glitch-based effects.

Live Visuals Session // 101516

Video Thumbnail

The live visuals in this session consist of generative clips from our Resgen series for Resolume. Clips were triggered on the fly and included some audio reactive versions. Behind the scenes, some adjustments were made using the built-in Dashboard controls to alter the clip prior to displaying in the Output Monitor. Most clips had minimal blending and alpha channels were used to separate the layers. The glitchy polygon visual was tweaked live, adjustments to the size and rotation were made with the music.

Live Visuals Session // 090516

Video Thumbnail

These live visuals were composed using a mix of hand-triggered effects and BPM synchronization. The top layer of thin cubes had the blur effects and random video playback set to BPM. The pixelized lines on the second layer had its color effects set to BPM and both the geometric explosion and directional flipping was done manually by bypassing the effect through improvisation with the music. Lastly, another geometric layer was placed in the background using some noise effects for extra texture.
