Livid Union v2.5 transforms your computer into an all-in-one live VJ software mixing studio with hundreds of effects, live video inputs, audio aware effects, and complete MIDI integration just to name a few features. The video mixing software gives you the tools you need to create, mix, control, perform, and record cutting-edge visuals in real time. Livid Union expands your creative possibilities so you can forget about expensive hardware rigs and confusing equipment.
Livid's video engine allows for instant manipulation and control of multimedia content. Utilizing hundreds of built-in effects and support for FreeFrame effects, movie triggering, live feed manipulation, advanced modules, MIDI learn, and countless other performance enhancing tools, Livid Union turns your computer into a complete VJ mixing studio.
The video mixer software reshapes the process of creating video content and saves you valuable time by allowing all effects processing and content placement to be done on the fly. Replacing the traditional time-consuming timeline and keyframe approach, which can take hours (if not days) to render, Livid Union's effects and clip placement can be done in instantly and saved to disk. This approach opens the process of video production to an exciting world of experimentation and creativity. The intuitive and flexible interface provides a platform for ideas to come to life.
MIDI integration is at the core of Livid Union. Clips can be triggered and cued with MIDI notes, effects can be mapped to sliders, knobs, wheels, and just about any device that sends MIDI data. Easy MIDI learn functionality makes mapping control to a MIDI device a breeze.
Over 100 Effects for Real-time Manipulation
Livid Union has hundreds of effects that can be applied in real time to produce totally unique compositions. Effects can be manipulated with the keyboard or mapped to MIDI controllers for greater precision. Easily save effects into presets for future use, which can then be run individually or in combination with other effect presets. Experience infinite variations on a single image with just a turn of a knob. Union 2.5 now supports the open-source FreeFrame effects plugin system, adding the possibility of hundreds of new effects.
Instant access to Over 4,000 QuickTime Sources
Using the Clip Grid, thousands of QuickTime clips can be triggered and controlled on the fly, for effortless mapping and organization of your entire multimedia library for real-time performance. You can use the movie players to control the playback, speed, direction, cue points, and BPM of your clips.
In addition to Union's two-channel video-mixing interface, you can now add up to four more video layers to your composition. Waveform visualizations can also be added to your video output and controlled through a sound input or audio file.
Full Mixing Studio
Union brings together the processing power of personal computing with powerful software to create an all-in-one video-mixing studio. Union replaces expensive hardware and antiquated technology to allow your creativity to smash through any technical roadblocks.
Elements are "plug-ins" built to extend the capabilities of Union and can be developed by you using the supplied (SDK) Software Development Kit. They can be used to make custom effects, interface controls, and media sources to integrate into Union's output.
Manipulate Live Feed
Use up to two live video or camera feeds via FireWire. Manipulate the live source with real-time effects, keying, mixing, and 3D mapping.
Tired of keyframes? Union software lets you record all your creations to disk. You can use faders and knobs to create real-time effects and record it to a high-resolution QuickTime movie. Union is a great addition for motion designers, editors, and graphics artist's arsenal.
Soundtrigger and Tempo
Union's built-in Soundtrigger allows you to map effects and trigger files using a sound input or audio file. BPM Sync allows you to synchronize video clips to a central tempo, and set multiple cue points for each video. Union's BPM Synch feature allows you to synchronize your external MIDI and other source devices seamlessly.
Automate entire performances with this unique module. By randomizing frequently used settings, The Automator allows Union to virtually play itself. Great for automated show control and video jukebox functions.
Alpha and Chroma Keying
Add key source colors and luminance instantly into a live feed or play movies on top of one another. Union lets you pick your values by simply clicking on the output and controlling the transparency with the twist of a dial. You can also use blue or green screens like special effects houses to place your source against a completely different background or environment.
Alpha masks or transparent shapes can be added to the output, either for unusual compositing or blocking out parts of the image. Source files for the mask image can be still images or QuickTime movies. The Top Mask feature allows you to mask the final output, perhaps most useful in creating non-rectangular projections.
