HeavyM on Kickstarter !

HeavyM on Kickstarter !

HeavyM is an intuitive projection mapping software, it is currently running in beta version. It allows the creation and projection of visual animations with great facility, in order to be projected on real surfaces with a projector. You can also use your own video contents, the software will adjust them automatically to your settings.

Before the beginnings of HeavyM, our dream was to do projection mapping, sadly we did not have the skills in infographics and motion design. Nevertheless, we were experienced in programming, that is how we came with the concept of a software that would generate animations adaptable on any volume configuration for us.

After developing a first Beta version, with which we had lots of fun, we decided to share it with you, for free. A large amount of you had downloaded this first version, and we did not expect such enthusiasm. Today, your energy is pushing us towards concentrating on HeavyM’s development, in order to create a tool corresponding to your needs. This campaign is crucial for HeavyM’s growth, now we need your support so we can go even further and develop the most awaited features. Let us all join today so we can create the greatest public community revolving around projection mapping.


With Thunderclap, you allow to publish a message on Facebook or Twitter the June 17th, announcing the campaign’s halfway point.

Thank you for relaying the information to the greatest number and make the HeavyM’s community even bigger !

It’s really quick & simple :

– Press « Support with »

– « Add my support »

– « Allow publishing »

– And that is good, everything is 100% secure

Thank you again 🙂

GoodBye Arkaos grandVj

After more than 10 years of using Arkaos GrandVj, Today I decided to give a new dimension to my visuals set-ups..

Thanks to the great offer from Resolume for the black Fridays, I could buy me a Avenue licence for 50%.

Happy Thanksgiving 2013! 50% Black Friday Discount

When we first started working on Resolume, VJ’ing was an underground culture. VJs were people who loved to do what they do, who just loved to drag projectors and computers around, show after show, weekend after weekend. If there was any form of payment, it was often just a crate of beer which doubled as a « desk » to put their laptops on.

Since then we’ve seen the scene grow to heights nobody could have imagined back then. Huge LED screens now take up the stage designs of every music festival. Projection mapping on custom geometry is a staple of the DJ booth in every club. Around the world, visual artists are setting fire to every room and facade with beautiful glowing pixels. Some of the people playing from that beer crate 15 years ago are now flying across the world in private jets accompanying superstar DJ’s.

We should never forget who we are and where we come from. So this weekend we give thanks to the old people that have pushed the visual arts to such great heights. And to the new people that will continue to push it in untold directions. We love the path we have walked together with you for almost 15 years now and we’re curious to see where it will take us in the future.

Thank You!

This weekend we offer 50% Thanksgiving discount on everything in the shop! All licenses (including educational), upgrades and footage.

This is your chance to stop using that cracked version or to upgrade from Avenue to Arena for half price!

Offer ends on Monday midnight CET. Add your products to the cart and you’ll see the discount applied


GrandVJ 2

Here’s the all-new, improved GrandVJ 2

GrandVJ 2 comes with a new interface, making it even more user friendly and straightforward, while integrating new functionalities in it.

Download Upgrade Info


Play. Mix. Perform.

GrandVJ 2 - Mixer Mode

Manipulate, trigger and mix video clips with sound, animated text strings or live cameras in much the same way as mixing music to create a spectacular audiovisual show. GrandVJ can mix up to 8 layers with a vast library of video effects, transitions and sound driven visual generators.

The A/B crossfading mode with independent preview makes it incredibly flexible to perform live, and the Browser Preview feature lets you preview visuals, effects, transitions and sources before sending them to the output, just like a DJ previews his next track in his headphones.

Works with all setups

GrandVJ 2 - Synth Mode

GrandVJ runs on both PC and Mac and accepts all common video and image formats. Its intuitive interface lets you turn your keyboard into a super controller for zipping through the functions. Need more? GrandVJ’s learn mode makes it a breeze to set up any MIDI controller and with support for the network based OSC protocol you can even control GrandVJ with an iPhone or an iPad. Hook it up and start the show!

VJs & Musicians reunited

ArKaosConnect VST plugin

The ArKaosConnect plug-in allows GrandVJ to receive sound and MIDI from any audio sequencer compatible with VST plug-ins, running on the same machine or on another machine on the network. Incredibly easy to setup, the plug-in configures itself automatically!

For VJs, ArKaosConnect enables a new level of interaction with Musicians.
For Musicians, ArKaosConnect makes it fun and easy to add a video track to compositions during live performance.

Easy as 1, 2, 3,…

GrandVJ 2 - MIDI

GrandVJ is very easy to customize to each user’s preferred setup. The interface can quickly be modified to fit individual needs and preferences.

Mapping MIDI controllers with the new learn mode is easy as pressing keys on your device but you can also import predefined presets for the most common MIDI controllers.

Can compose with Quartz

GrandVJ and Quartz Composer
On top of all this, Mac OS X users can mix Quartz Compositions (.qtz files) as Sources with all their other visuals, but also as Effects, with GrandVJ automatically mapping the composition inputs as effects parameters.GrandVJ comes preloaded with a set of great Quartz Compositions from selected Artists, you can easily find tons of other .qtz files out there on the Web and of course you can use your own compositions created with Apple’s Quartz Composer, which makes visualization possibilities in GrandVJ practically endless..
