    They all suck, basically :)

    I can't remember asking for programs that are trying to emulate a DJ-setup, but only with movies instead of records.

    I'm not looking to become a master vj. Just looking to add a different feature to my show. I was hoping one of these were good enough to do the trick.

    Possibly ALL of them are able to get you introduced...

    I suggest you give resolume a try, it's pretty good for simple video mixing.

    neuromixer micro-review

    I had a play with this on a newbie VJs PC laptop, and an experienced VJs TiBook.

    Both had the same ugly, unintuitive interface.

    Both ran *really*slowly.
    On the PC, it was a pain to set up the output window on the second monitor (no dual screen option).
    Both have really nice chromakey, but thats it.

    Absolute dog mate.

    Go and download OpenTZT.

    OTZT

    OTZT !!

    the only software I use on a live show.
    for me it's the best, it takes some time to get used to, but once you have.... you'll never want to switch to another app :)


    peace


    did I mention it's free? ;-)

    Will check out your guys options. Does anyone know how to do output from a laptop to a 42" plasma. Everyone is telling me that it will look like crap because of resolution. Is this true or can it be somehow overcome.

    Have to say OTZT is much more a VJs app, with Neuromixer being more for DJs that want an AV mixing software, both are free and have great user communities (yes I am a little biased ;) )

    BTW Fullscreen and VGA, I don't see you guys on the OTZT sourceforge user list... why not head over and get more involved :)

    Still would like to know if pluging directly into a plasma television via a pc or laptop will look good or will it have a pixel type look to it? Plus does anyone have the link ot otzt.

    depends the res your running @, the scaling your comp is doing, the scaling in the plasma, etc....

    Neuromixer runs @ 320x240, for efficiency reasons..... there is a single deck version of Neuromixer that I think runs higher, but then you would need 2 comps and a video mixer...

    There is a 640x480 version of OTZT but it still has a few small bugs were working on.

    Only way to decide if it looks good enough for YOU is to check it out yourself, don't take other ppls word for it.... some ppl are resolution nazis, some ppl you can tell them its 640x480 when its really 320x240 scaled nicely and they won't know the dif (eg. most ppl).

    Test and learn.....

    As for an OTZT link.... try using your research skills and look for OpenTZT online ;)

    otzt

    morph, i've been xtremely busy lately and I've had several computer crashes the last couple of weeks. I've been dying to test the latest release and get a little more involved on the sourceforge list but.... 24 hours in a day just ain't enough ;-)

    btw, I'm in OZ next year, maybe you want to meet & greet & mix?

    peace

    morph, found it already before you posted didn't realize otzt was opentzt. Anyways, I would love to load a bunch of software onto my lappy but don't have alot of room and don't want to crash lappy for audio reasons. I will probably try otzt doesn't appear to take alot of room and has had good reviews from what I can tell.
