The eXo music visualization engine is fully hardware accelerated build with OpenGl. It features a 2D procedural texture generation unit and a 3D scene description. The eXo visualizer is a plug-in for iTunes running on Mac OS X.
Here a few interesting facts about the eXo visualizer:
- Uses XML to load description, so itÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã??Ã?Â¢?Ã??Ã?Â¬Ã??Ã?Â¢?Ã??Ã?Â¢s very flexible
- Has a mathematical parser to evaluate expressions for all behaviors (particles, colors, waveform...)
- Can load 3D shapes in the XML description
- Has a full modular 3D shape synthesizer, really fun to explore!
The visualizer comes with about 40 different scripts that will run randomly. ItÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã??Ã?Â¢?Ã??Ã?Â¬Ã??Ã?Â¢?Ã??Ã?Â¢s also possible to select them manually through the preference dialog or using keys.
