I have loads of different styles for birthdays and other occasions, I've also built up quite a big collection of named birthday drops, they used to be all available free for users on these forums but for some reason every time I put a visual up I was targeted by someone higher up and the visuals used to disappear, but they never took down anyone else's offerings.

When V8 was released I closed down the Visual Shed forum after running it for vdj users for a number of years thinking I'd just offer visuals here, to cut a long story short I offered a complete 4th of July pack for users and that disappeared also after a couple of days. So I offered the same pack to another DJ software for their users and they had the complete opposite attitude towards the pack, they made a separate page on their site for the visuals and sent out an email to all their users informing them of the free visuals for download, now that certainly perked up my pecker... lol

Anyways, if you need something made let me know and I'll see what I can come up with for you completely free of charge, lots of the guys from these forums still contact me for individual stuff not just for birthday names but for weddings and other occasions, just try and give me as much notice as you can.

Oh, I will be starting Visual Shed back up again when I can get some spare time.

Cheers Groovin, in the end I thought whats the point, whoever did it would never leave there name so no reason could be found as to why. They must have thought my stuff was crap and were saving users from being traumatised... lol

I suppose if they hadn't been removed I wouldn't have contacted the other dj software where they are so much more enthusiastic on using them, bit of good Karma my way for a change, lol.

Google results show it's simply "For She's A Jolly Good Fellow".

Fellow in this case not meaning a male, but a friend, companion, colleague etc.

A sampler feature I'd love to see is a trigger mode that would allow you to play a sample and select another sample that would start after the first sample completed (or better yet, start on the next measure) as long as they are assigned in the same group. Kind of like some of the live performance software out there.
I can't imagine that would be difficult, but I'm not a programmer either.
For me, that would make VDJ a total DJ/Live Performance solution for what I'm dreaming of doing.

I'd love to be able to resize a group of video samples versus going through and doing them 1 by 1.

Example,

I have some animated logos that I run in the bottom corner of my screen, after resizing 20/25 its he's very time consuming.

The ability to resize a group of video samples.

If the sampler is played out via a empty deck can the current sample bpm be shown/used by beat aware fx,
I can just load a track at the desired bpm , but the times I forget the default 120bpm sounds a mess,
an actual beatgrid would be great but just the bpm is an improvement.

Volume level should automatically be set to the playing deck. Crazy that it needs to be link to just one deck or master volume.

In the sample editor, there is a knob labeled 'Transparency'. But this is a bit of a misnomer, as it specifically performs a chroma key based on the color you select with the eyedropper. This is great for certain video samples with dark backgrounds and such, but not ideal for others.

Adjusting the sample volume performs a 'fade' or dissolve of the video, however it is intrinsically linked to the audio level of the sample. There are times you'd want to utilize that video fade to make your clip translucent, but keep the clip volume all the way up.

Could you do one of two options?

1) Unlink the sample volume from the sample fade and make them individual sample variables you can adjust independently. Perhaps with an option to link them if you want.

2) Add a switch or drop-down to the sample editor to change the type of 'Transparency' from chroma key to dissolve. If you set it to dissolve and save it at less than 100% then that would effectively be the maximum level of opacity for that clip when you have the volume full, but would still allow it to fade further when you lower the sample volume.

You could always use a video with actual transparency - for example using HAP + Alpha.

Hi, nice feature in VDJ 8.

1) Also I want some settings "fade" for overlay video clip. Now is only possible to "volume" trigger, which isnt, what I want.
2) Move video clip (not stretch) in screen, for example, if I have logo, I need to align to top right corner..TellyMedia works ok, but there is some limitaion - setting of layout align of media is global, I need separate of each video clip.
3) Better chroma key - green / blue is not always remove properly
4) Add filters to separate video clip in sampler - for example I want greyscale for logo clip, boom auto for dance clip

Thanks

You can already resize and reposition individual video samples in the sample editor :)

This is hard to see, I will admit that.

I actually didn't take the time to read the manual and didn't even know I could that for about a year, lmmfao!!

Since you mentioned TM and it's limitations I am responding here even though this is wishes for sampler. I have included a couple notes about transparency and image scaling as it applies to the sampler and maybe should be looked at.

TellyMedia has been a building block for audio and video for a long time. The focus for TellyVisuals has been on text handling and layout. The libraries used for TellyMedia can now do most everything that TellyVisuals can do but these abilities are not surfaced in TellyMedia and won't be. TellyVisuals will take on audio, video, slideshows, and the sort of thing TM does in addition to what TV does now.

TellyVisuals puts things in containers called panels. Every panel can be sized, moved, have images, color, borders, transparency. You can have as many panels as you like. Panel images can be a file image or the VDJ Video. So you can resize the VDJ Video or give it other attributes. TellyVisuals is evolving into what I call NTV. New TellyVisuals and is pretty stellar so far and is taking a long time. Main challenge is going to be able to surface the power in an easy way. Some of it will need to be script-able by you to get the most out of it. Trying not to run on about things.

A simple TellyVisuals layout that contains and animated gif in upper right, an image being rotated by TV in lower right. The silver surfer video being played by VDJ, and a transparent video overlay (BLUEMARK) being played by TellyMedia. The sampler plays HAP alpha videos with alpha but does not seem to play the more common formats with alpha that contain alpha.



I shut down TM and made the panel that is showing the VDJ video larger. The image for every panel has scaling modes like aspect, stretch, mirror, etc It appears the sampler can only stretch the image unless I am missing something.

@locodog

that's sampler script is something I would love to try.

work in progress my friend, I've got the variable logic working and I've had to use a long way round to get the sample to switch off, I'll pm you once it's proved and maybe staff can give me a pointer to avoid the long way round [posted in 8.2 technical], [only got 3 samples set up like this at the moment I'm wanting 45]
