Koala 0.5.1

OK. I’ll have to think of something else than this blog for Koala. I’m coming up with small improvements and new versions all the time.

Here’s Koala 0.5.1

- Keyboard shortcuts for video triggering
- Changed the buttons for the effects
- Fixed a bug with the audio sensitivity. It used to default to zero, now the default value is 1

Koala Is Out

I’ve been working on a custom VJ-software for a couple of weeks and now I have something to show you guys. Meet Koala.

Pretty simple app really. Made with Quartz Composer and Interface Builder. There’s no fullscreen option, yet. I’m working on it. The keyer is based on Sam Kass’s composition.

This a very early version. Things are not looking or working right, but you can test it if you want to. This should be pretty stable, but I take no responsibility in what might happen if you use this. So, if your computer explodes, turns into dust or starts wearing skirts, don’t blame me. I don’t have any time for manuals or such. It should be fairly straightforward, but if you have any questions, comments or bug reports you can contact me via email: matti.niinimaki “at” gmail dot com

Works only on Mac OSX 10.4 ->
