Re: Video mixing using MIDI

Thanks everyone! 

Per, using an assistant would be helpful, although coming from a town of 120,000 means that those kinds of individuals are VERY difficult to find. Especially one with existing gear. 

I've sent out some messages within my community to see if I get any responses from music and video aficionados here locally. 

Mark, will Resolume work on the fly? It seems like items would have to be recorded / lined up beforehand.

Looking like I'll have to go with software, as let's face it - I'd enjoy not adding more dead weight to my rig. 

As for the cameras, maybe I'll just wait for Google Glass! That would at least be a classier version of a miner's helmet webcam type thing!

Hello jean-Paul,
just to say that Resolume would be a good solution for the manipulations you want, and very easy to manage : you plug your usb cams, they appear in the soft (as an image or a video), you select the midi command you want to trig one or another (as in Live).

Objet: Video mixing using MIDI

Hey everyone,

Does anyone here have any experience or know of any ideas on how to mix video content in a live setting using a MIDI controller? Here's my vision:

As a live loop artist ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdZRqF2taZI ), I've always wanted to have cameras (GoPro or otherwise) attached to me/my guitar/my other gear so that people in the audience could see what I'm manipulating from my vantage point. I was hoping to have a minimum of 3 cameras running, attached to a projector that would then display those different angles to the audience.

What I'd like to do is be able to control which camera angle is 'selected' on screen, preferably with my feet. It'd be great if I could manipulate other audio hardware devices too using the same MIDI signal, so that I could essentially trigger something like playback of a certain layer while simultaneously switching the camera from angle 1 to 3.

Take this idea one further, and incorporate some basic lights into the mix.

So, any ideas for something that could be used to switch between cameras for live video projection? My preference is for hardware since I don't trust laptops. Not particularly interested in effects and/or other visual manipulations either, but wouldn't turn them down! Thanks!
