LiveBlox: Controls, blox and pipelines.
Familiarize yourself with the controls and blox to utilize the power of LiveBlox.
This is the workspace in LiveBlox. To get the most out of LiveBlox it is important to familiarize yourself with some of the controls and how it works. You can drag and drop the elements (blox) into the workspace. Then connect them together by following the mapping colors.
02. more controls
More controls and features you should familiarize yourself with.
Elements or what we call blox, is many lines of codes that does a specific task. They can be connected together by following the colors. For example red goes with red and blue with blue. As an example, a camera block would capture video from a webcam and if this was connected to a face detect block, all faces on the video stream would be detected. This could then be attached to a section that plays out a message, such as “hello” whenever someone’s face is visible on the camera. This is a simple example, but portrays the concept.
A pipeline is blox connected together. You can connect the blox together as many you want and mix audio, video, computer vision and much more to make the pipelines.
05. record video
To record video is a very easy process. You can add effects, transitions and much more.
A container allows you to build custom blox. You double click on the blox to go inside of it. There you can build a pipeline, this allows you to keep your work organised and neat.
07. inside of containers
Inside of a container. This is the same procedure as the rest of LiveBlox, drag and drop the blox to make a pipeline. You also need to add inputs and outputs. You can add multiple inputs and outputs. To go back to the previous workspace, go up a level as shown in the screenshot.
08. custom blox
Up a level, your custom blox is now ready to connect up with other blox.
09. building blox
You can just drag and drop the features, controls and the layout you want into the blox.
10. "trippy colours"
Now you have built your own blox. You can save it and use it as you feel fit.
11. connect it together
Continue to build the pipeline of your choice.
12. GUI builder
The GUI builder is a great feature in LiveBlox. It allows you to build tools/apps and then export them as a standalone application. Let’s say you have made a pipeline that you often use, but you would like to just use only that application with not using too much of the CPU you can open the app you made without starting up the whole LiveBlox system.
Here is the standalone application we just made. Now we can use this application without starting up LiveBlox.
Audio is a big part of LiveBlox.
You can analyze audio, resample, synthesize, conversions, timestamps and much more.
LiveBlox has spout support so it can be connected with other piece of software’s that also support spout.
