Livid launches Cell VJ app
Livid Instruments has put out the premiere edition of Cell, its real-time VJ software. Users can loop, reverse, scrub and change the speed of clips, and insert a variety video effects, such as trails, warping or an 8mm filter. Manual control is possible through a mouse/keyboard combo or a MIDI controller, which can be mapped to trigger virtually any command as necessary. Alternately, Cell can be almost entirely automated by pre-arranging clips and transitions. The program comes with 36 videos for $100; Livid is selling more collections of 36 for $30 apiece.
