Union 2.5 VJ software

Nearly one year after its previous major release, Livid Instruments has introduced Union 2.5, an update to its all-in-one live VJ software mixing studio with hundreds of effects, live video inputs, audio aware effects, and complete MIDI integration. Livid's Union offers controls to create, mix, control, perform, and record cutting edge visuals in real-time. Version 2.5 brings audio aware effects, freeFrame support, multiple cue points, advanced Sound Trigger with filters, waveform display, BPM Synch with rate adjustment, a new Caption module, and four additional video layers. According to the company, Livid's video engine allows for instant manipulation and control of multimedia content: it offers hundreds of built-in effects and support for FreeFrame effects, movie triggering, live feed manipulation, advanced modules, MIDI learn and countless other performance enhancing tools.

The software allows effects processing and content placement to be done on-the-fly. Replacing the traditional timeline and keyframe approach, Union's effects and clip placement can be done in real-time.

The software costs $300 and is available as a Universal Binary for G4-based Macs running at 1.5GHz or faster. Upgrades are $75 for existing Union customers.
