Fragmenter is a realtime animation app to make moving images, built around a unique looping animation engine. You can make abstract kaleidoscopic animations in seconds, or make longer animations, bringing to life your drawings. Fragmenter‘s live-drawing features make it a perfect tool for a vj with drawing skills. You can also sync the animation with music and make videos that have an unconventional hand-made look.
Main features of the last public version:
- cross-platform: working on android, windows, mac
- symmetry modes to make easily kaleidoscope/mandala animations (Lite mode: limited number of symmetries)
- realistic pen emulating pressure or in case of capable device (e.g., thinkpad tablet, samsung note) using real pressure info of the pen
- fast animating engine
- multiple layers, with three different functions (background, loop and infinite layer)
- save/load layers (Pro version: 9 slots per layer, Lite version: only 2 slots per layer)
- adjustable pen size, pen color, pen brush, background color (Lite version: 10 colors only, less brushes)
- video tutorials
- phone, tablet, hd compatible
- minimal permission requirements, no ads
I am Balázs Keszegh, the person behind Longtitle Productions. Currently the focus is on developing Fragmenter and the game Ikonomikon. To develop Fragmenter and other stuff I use Gideros, a very friendly open-source cross-platform SDK.
For more info see the Longtitle Productions homepage.
Miracle is an art collective without which Fragmenter wouldn't be what it is. Also, Longtitle Productions is a small subset of Miracle. Various members of Miracle are using Fragmenter in live performances, in particular Diego Verastegui and Benjamin Efrati.
