Live Multimedia Generation Resources

Resources for tools that can be used to generate live audio-visual experiences.

Many can also be to generate “subsets” of their full capabilities- e.g. static images, or 2D animations.

Visual Development Systems

  • Pure Data (PD): “…Pd is used to process and generate sound, video, 2D/3D graphics, and interface sensors, input devices, and MIDI.” Pure data is more focused on audio; see Music/Sound/Audio Resources
  • vvvv: “vvvv is a hybrid visual/textual live-programming environment for easy prototyping and development. It is designed to facilitate the handling of large media environments with physical interfaces, real-time motion graphics, audio and video that can interact with many users simultaneously.”
  • NodeBox family: “…enable designers to automate boring production challenges, visualize large sets of data and access the raw power of the computer without thinking in ones and zeroes.”
