Although there were no posts for some time, many things have happened since then. Fragmenter got a plethora of new features, these are the most important ones:
There were important updates to the Fragmenter homepage as well:
Last but not least there were many events featuring Fragmenter, check out the recording of a recent concert at Mediawave 2019, with music by Bey.Ler.Bey and visuals by members of Miracle:
Our biggest news is that in the latest version of the desktop versions of Fragmenter finally it is possible to show the animation in another window, which can be set to fullscreen on a second monitor or a projector. So finally there is no need for additional software when using Fragmenter on a live event.
Also, we made an Artists section on our homepage to make it easier to find out more about the artists who work extensively with Fragmenter. Diego Verastegui, the first artist included there, recently made a cool compilation of his work made with Fragmenter:
We are past the exhibition about Xenoxenism, here you can have a look at a short video documentation, where among others you can see people drawing upon their faces using a modified Fragmenter:
On 2017 Oct 7 Miracle will present the exhibition Xenoxenism in Paris. It is centered around Xenoxenism and features an interactive work called XenoFragmenter based on Fragmenter that modifies and merges the image of the people in multiple stages. Have a look at the test session that happened earlier in Budapest:
On 2017 Apr 30 Rhodes Tennis Court will give a concert in Kisüzem (Budapest), animating live with Fragmenter. The concert will be in the scope of the Ukmukfukk Zinefeszt 2017, check out their page for the rest of the events.
We want to share with you how Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) is perfect to project portions of a Fragmenter window. This is probably the simplest and most effective way to hide the menu and other technicalities from your audience during a live Fragmenter event. With OBS you can even mix your Fragmenter drawings with any video, another vj app output or anything else you can imagine. Highly recommended to use with Fragmenter.
There were also new events pushing further the limits of Fragmenter. First, check out this Miracle production with Diego drawing with Fragmenter:
Check out the latest music video made by Diego Verastegui for music by Rhodes Tennis Court. It is nicely showcasing how cool stuff you can do with Fragmenter.
Meanwhile, our Media section is constantly updated with new videos, see e.g. Diego Verastegui animating:
But that's not all. Now that the desktop versions of Fragmenter are working, I've added two great new features (and more interesting things are to come). Note that so far these features are not publicly available, contact us if you are interested in using them (on android, windows or mac). The first is the possibility to use various brushes. The second is that now a running Fragmenter can behave like a remote control for another Fragmenter running on the same computer or even on the same local network. This way finally it's possible to give live presentations where you don't need to use the buttons and other controls on the projected Fragmenter but on another screen/another computer/phone etc., so the menus don't distract the audience anymore.
Check out a short demo made by János Hardi using the remote control feature. You can also spot the new brushes:
