motion dive .tokyo

A pioneer of visual art software in Japan, Digitalstage first released its motion dive software in 1998. motion dive takes an unique approach by taking two visual sources, and then mixing and switching them in a DJ style performance. After hitting the VJ scene in Japan, with its direct and simple interface, it eventually spread to other cities of the world. motion dive works on both Windows and Macintosh platforms.

DJ Style Visual Performance

Just like taking two music tracks and fading them back and forth, scratching or adding effects, the idea is the same on the motion dive. Use the smooth A/B Fader to alternate between channel A and B, scratch the clips rhythmically with the Scratch Buttons, and use the Control Knobs to control color EQ effects and the BPM. Selecting video clips are quick by dragging and dropping them to the A and B output channels, or by using the large dial and channel buttons on the console.

Wide File Support

motion dive can import QuickTime movies and most picture formats from digital cameras. It also supports AVI and MPEG files, as well as Macromedia Flash contents. It can even playback AIFF/WAV/MP3 audio files on the computer’s hard disk. To get you started right away, motion dive comes with a video library created by several top professional VJ artists.

Picture: JPEG, BMP, GIF, PICT, PNG, PSD, TARGA, TIFF

Audio and Visual Collaboration

With motion dive, you can play and remix the visuals along to the music, and then record and playback your visual performance as one piece of artwork. For this bundled package, motion dive can receive MIDI messages, therefore you can connect an electronic instrument to the console, and perform the music and visuals at the same time. For instance, you can program your music and your clip sequences on a separate sequencer, and control visual effects from your instrument.

V-LINK for Complete Integration

Its also compatible to EDIROL/Roland V-LINK instrument such as Edirol PCR series (PCR-30/50/80/M1/M30/M50/M80/A30) MIDI keyboards, and Fantom-X series keyboards, MC-909 sampling groovebox, SP-606 sampling workstation for triggering video clips and controlling effects. By activating the V-LINK function on the instrument, pre-programmed settings are called up for instant integration with motion dive. Custom parameter settings can also be done in the V-LINK mode on the instrument. This is the future of the new visual performance art scene!
