Along with VDMX we publish several free utility applications for the macOS that are generally useful for VJs and other video professionals.
The AVF Batch Exporter is a simple, free / open source transcoding tool for macOS that can be used to convert multiple files to the specified output codec settings in a single export session.
When creating new ISF based generators and FX for use in VDMX or other supported applications, one of the most useful tools is the free ISF Editor.
We’ve all been there: you’re in the middle of a gig, and someone asks you if you can do something “like the classic winamp / milkdrop / geiss visualizer thing”. For a lot of people, visualizers bundled with MP3 players were their first exposure to music visualization, and that’s had an important and lasting influence on what we all do. ProjectMilkSyphon brings back this classic goodness.
Powered by the awesome Giphy search engine, a Mac VJ with an Internet connection can now instantly pull tagged GIFs from a huge online library and use them directly in their favorite Syphon enabled video application.
BlackSyphon is a simple, free utility that makes it possible for any Syphon enabled software to efficiently send and receive video streams to and from Blackmagic Design hardware devices such as the Intensity Pro, Intensity Shuttle, DeckLink series, MiniMonitor / MiniRecorder, and UltraStudio 4k.
NDISyphon is a simple, free utility that makes it possible for any Syphon enabled software to efficiently send and receive video streams to and from other applications over a network using the NDI® protocol from Newtek.
Provides a simple interface for browsing available OSCQuery servers, displays their OSC node hierarchies, creates UI items for endpoints that advertise their type, and sends OSC data to the remote server when the UI items are used.
A simple app that makes it possible to use OSCQuery Protocol with applications that only support basic OSC receiving. This works by loading a template JSON file that describes the OSC namespace of another piece of software and directs clients to send their messages to the proper place.
A simple app that makes it possible to use OSCQuery Protocol with applications that only support MIDI input. This app can receive OSC messages and converts them into MIDI that gets sent to a specified destination app. Allows for creating templates (JSON files) to describe a set of MIDI receivers that are published via OSCQuery Protocol. This app can also be used to load in an Ableton Live Set file (.als) and parses them for potential any MIDI receivers. An address space is automatically created for each discovered element and the app serves as a bridge, converting OSC messages into the MIDI messages expected by Live.
