Continuing on with my work based around shaders and panoramic projection (read the making of ‘Temples’ ).  In this this video, rather than animate the camera / spherical projection manually in After Effects, I made the camera purely random and generative, by adding noise() expressions to latitude, longitude, rotation and zoom.

Here’s a still of a panoramic frame..



also, here’s a final frame from the video – it’s more to show the detail unfortunately lost in Vimeo’s compression.  There’s a lot of fine, fast moving detail which is sacrificed.

Zio Beta Menus & Guide

October 31, 2009

Happy Halloween, and have a look at Zio which I’ve finally ‘finished’.  It’s just about to go to the beta testers, and then I’ll double check everything once more, build in the in-app purchase function to unlock the full program (it will come as a free app with a couple of presets for playback only), and then submit it to the App Store next week.  It will be for iPhone and iPod touch OS 3.0 and later, and will be around $5 to buy.

Below is the instruction guide which will be in a scrollable window, so forgive the long jpeg.


Zio Beta Testers Needed

October 15, 2009


My iPhone application Zio is near completion and I should have a Beta ready for next week.

I was planning on using, but thought I’d throw out the line here to see if anyone would be interested in helping me.  The app needs tested on all devices, iPod touch, iPhone 3G, 3GS etc, and played with a lot for any bugs or suggestions on improvements, and everything possible to help get it past the Apple review process.

If you’re interested either drop me a line or goto the Zio forum I’ve specially created for Beta testing and register there.  Once the Beta is ready you’ll receive further instructions on how to obtain an ad hoc version.

The forum will also be home to users of Zio to talk and discuss about the program and create their own galleries of Zio art.

So hopefully if I can get a few testers I wont need to use, and in return I can give you a free version of the app, a credit, and hopefully work together again on any future projects I might have.

Zio – Demo video

August 31, 2009

Well we’re almost there, I’ve got most of the features in place for my iPhone app ‘Zio’ – an interactive visualiser based on my generative animation system used in Music Is Math, The Nest That Sailed The Sky etc.

Presently you can change most of the branching and shading and can easily navigate with dragging/pinch zoom and rotate.  You can pause the animation at any time and still interact/move around, and also save pictures to your photo library.

The interface is just a temporary one at the minute for testing, it will be redesigned and probably have twice as much features seen in the demo – including particle motion and trails and the ability to tweak the underlying math and algorithms.

This demo is a screen cap of the iPhone simulator – at times the frame-rate is jerky – but actually runs okay on the real device! (don’t know why that should be).

I’m taking a short break for the minute and off to Austria this week to pick up my award.
