This is an example of the live oil visuals I've been exploring this year. I use an LED lightbox with an HD webcam fed through VDMX to apply digital effects on an analog visual source. I use mineral oil, rubbing alcohol and liquid acrylic oils pressed between two pieces of clock glass to create the visuals. At shows I also run a master mix from the soundboard into an audio interface to drive animation parameters in VDMX. The resulting effect is a lot of fun to watch.
