For my algorithmic animation final, I wanted to capture the beat of the music to visualize its video in a different way. I mapped sections of the video to individual particles that then reacted with each other and fft data to provide an interesting effect. I have three different ‘modes’ within this exploration that automatically switch at regular intervals.
Throughout the process, I thought this could be developed into an interesting tool for music video creation. I would create a gui interface that allows a user to easily upload their own source video and audio footage. I would also want to create a way for users to add multiple videos to mix up their footage.
