dbCinema is a graphic synthesizer and langu(im)age processor I wrote in Adobe Director. It produces amazing still images and knockout real-time painterly cinema. Click here for an introductory video that shows you how I use it. If you're interested in using the PC desktop version of dbCinema, drop me a line at jim @ vispo.com.
Chris Funkhouser: "In its ultimate form, dbCinema is wildly versatile, elaborately participatory, and produces high-quality patterned art on a consistent basis. dbCinema's animations actively flourish. Compiled images perpetually emerge, simultaneously preserved and layered on the screen. Andrews gives us a refined stage where viewers use 'brushes' to adjust minute details, such as the speed of geometry or the background color, and establish important parameters. The 'brushes' devised by Andrews inscribe profound kinetic elements into dbCinema projections, enabling viewers to create and configure what happens on the screen."
Videos of dbCinema in action are screen recordings of dbCinema sessions I've done using the desktop version of dbCinema.
