The video below is documentation for a live video compositor project developed in collaboration with James Moore. I was the sole As3 programmer on this project. The AIR app takes advantage of FFMPEG to allow videos uploaded to the system to be broken down into frames and also to render out (render out is still in development). FFMPEG was accessed via the native process functionality of the air runtime environment. The overall installation was setup using a matrox Tripple head running 3 projectors. The project is a lot bigger than it looks in the video.
I really enjoyed the collaboration with James. It was nice to take a back seat in the decision making and just concentrate on how the application would be coded.
The left projection functions as a media viewer allowing the user to browse through files in the assets folder. The center screen allows the user to edit the content before it is played back. The edit choices are stylised and restrictive to fit in with the overall aesthetic of the system which is based around a minimalist grid. The right side projection shows a playback of the video being edited with the changes appearing in real time.
