Processing / routing video coming from Ableton Live

Apr 25 2012 | 2:08 pm


Does anyone know if there is a way to process the video playing from Live’s arrange view? I would like to be able to, for example, control brightness/contrast, or customize the video window, project in a circle-shape rather than square, and more stuff like that. I’ve searched the forum and found some older posts, like this one – Soundflower for VIDEO:

Haven’t found a solution yet though, and thought that I’d blow some life into this discussion again. Wouldn’t it be grrreat to be able to tweak the video from Ableton?

There isn’t, however you can use jitter i your max for live devices and play video back from within Ableton Live with whatever effects you want.

Last time I checked video in Live was really basic. Much more useful to do it all in M4L/Jitter, as t3mpuser says. You can then also use jit.netsend and syphon to send stuff around, if needed.
