Visual Division – XBox Kinect, Quartz Composer, Synapse, Syphon & Resolume Avenue 3

The 3 Windows shown here are Quartz Composer (top left), Resolume Output (top right) and the Synapse wireframe window (bottom middle).

A little info on the tools and software used here:

Xbox Kinect – This is a product developed by Microsoft for the games console. It’s a hardware, camera based way to interact with devices by movement.

Quartz Composer – A bit of apple developer software used to create and manipulate animations using OpenGL.

Synapse – The software used to act as the “drivers” for the Kinect hardware. Very, very clever indeed! You can get it for Mac and PC here:

Syphon – Allows you to take video from any supported software and feed it into another. Nice! In this case, it was used to take the rendered output of QC and feed it into Resolume.

Resolume Avenue 3 – The VJ software used to apply effects and mix video in realtime.

For more info and videos, I will be posting a tutorial here soon.
