Max (Wikipedia) Max is a visual programming language for music and multimedia developed and maintained by San Francisco-based software company Cycling '74. During its 20-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists for creating recordings, performances, and installations. The Max program itself is modular, with most routines existing in the form of shared libraries. An API allows third-party development of new routines (called "external objects"). As a result, Max has a large user base of programmers not affiliated with Cycling '74 who enhance the software with commercial and non-commercial extensions to the program.

Video Mapping Software: 3d Projection Mapping I’ve been intrigued by the idea of 3d projection mapping/video mapping for the use in live shows in public outdoor spaces and in smaller venues as well. It’s generally known for big outdoor venues and live shows: some of you may have seen Amon Tobin’s show ISAM. But these guys from France, Pierre Schneider and François Wunschel, created a 2 person show called “Euphorie” on a much smaller scale than Amon Tobin’s bewildering experience. Check out this clip of fluorescent light guitars: Two different projects, both different kind of shows, but I like that they’re both designed to tour and to be shown before a live audience. I was also able to find an interview with the creators of the show ‘Euphorie’, who are better known as the founders of the company 1024 architecture.

Tandent Lightbrush: engineering an image One of the more interesting new products shown at SIGGRAPH 2012 in LA was Tandent’s Lightbrush.

But first some lines about another program, vvvv: The last few months I have spent some time working with vvvv, which is a graphical programming language similar to max and pd, but with a few distinct differences. First of all, it is windows only (It is based on directx instead of opengl), which is the main reason why I haven´t used it before. The vvvv developer´s attitude is that it is better to make the program as good as possible on one platform rather than trying to make everybody happy. Second, it has a clearer focus on 3D than max/jitter.

Video Projection Mapping Blog by HELMUT BREINEDER (mbox.de) For the recently re-opened Danish Royal Jelling National Museum m-box.de realised a projection mapping installation for the institution’s mythology room (assignment and creative lead: Art+Com studios).Across several levels, outsized roots of the Yggdrasil tree – a legend in Nordic lore – served as projection surfaces for images, text and animations that bring the Viking mythology to live. Here, twelve essential tales from the realms of cosmology, magical items, crossing realms and Ragnarok are staged across three trees using a combination of illustrative character animations and abstract motion design. Switches between themes and areas are underscored by atmospheric colour changes of backlit rear panels spread across the entire room.m box fleshed out the Art+Com storylines and brought them to life with details, designs and animations.
