New in Luz Music Visualization Studio

Luz hotness, fresh out of the oven…

New Beat Monitor

The beat monitor now shows which beat you’re on, filling up bars as you go 1,2,3,4-clear-1,2,…

Here, we’re half way through beat 3 of 4.  (Of course the number 4 is configurable!)

New Three-Pane Studio

Added a director view, for a total of three (left to right):

  • selected actor(s)
  • selected director(s)
  • output preview

The three views match the first three tabs, for a satisfying symmetry.

How to Get It

No packages yet, sorry!  Ubuntu users can get Luz like this:

  1. sudo apt-get install bzr ruby1.8 libgtk2-ruby libglade2-ruby libgtkglext1-ruby librmagick-ruby1.8 libcairo-ruby libsdl-ruby1.8 libgems-ruby1.8
  2. bzr branch https://code.launchpad.net/~ian-mcintosh/luz/trunk luz
  3. cd luz
  4. ./luz_editor.rb

Then prepare to feel like a caveman picking up Photoshop for the first time.  We badly need some instructional videos.

    I’d love to see some tutorial on Luz. Some screenshots I’ve seen are really cool .. can’t wait to create stuff like that myself.

    Could you please make some more example sets to play with?
