Arkaos VJ, the multimedia authoring tool, has been updated to version 3.0, adding support for full video streaming as input via a new tab on the visual database window. Input options include USB, FireWire Webcam, and an acquisition board.
ArKaos VJ offers a way to edit and manipulate a visual performance while it’s running. Targeted to VJs, DJs, installation and event artists, as well as businesses, the product lets you create live visual animation, using existing image and movie files. And you can add different real-time effect types and sequences. Arkaos VJ is compatible with Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.x.
In addition to the full video streaming support, version 3.0 has new transfer modes, 32-bit rendering support, higher resolution (1024×768), seven new effects (Contrast, Filters, improved Plane, Infinite Zoom, Color Rainbow, Delirium, Rythmix), a new interface skin, a complete redesign of the visual info dialog, and more. Upgrades from previous versions are US$169; for new users the price is $343.
