Stupid Ableton Live Video Tricks

Post by sleep » Fri Feb 01, 2008 8:51 am

Using live clips and MIDI controlled locators to control animations simultaneously while a set is playing (separate track for locators), using a hacked Live skin to create trails in those animations:

using MIDI locators to jump between images/movies; using chains to select images based upon midi note velocity:

Pointless, yes, but it was fun. And it saved me from dropping money on Modul8 (modul8 IS awesome, tho).

I'd be interested to see how you set this up in Live. Any vids of your process in Live?

Great technique! I use it to control lighting, as well as Arkaos video and remote pan/tilt/zoom cameras. It's even more powerful when you toss in MIDI effects, virtual MIDI buses, dummy clips, and Follow Actions.

Use Live MIDI to control just about anything MIDI-controllable.

Sometimes you gotta think outside the box...
