Text-Attack: Real Time Resolume Text

This vj loop lets you add any text to Resolume Avenue in real time --control resolume text font size, letting, tracking, alignment, and more! This vj loop lets you use sliders or MIDI hardware to set font sizes, font align (left, right, or center), font styles, letting and tracking in your Resolume text display. Show any text such as DJ names, shout-outs, or branded messaging on-the-fly and in real-time! Some font sets (but not all-- fonts are a major headache) include special characters as well as accents such as "Á, É, Í, Ó, Ú, Ñ, Ü, á, é, í, ó ú, ñ, ü, A ó, ò, ñ,ç, ¿, ß, ¢, £, ¥,&, ©, §,Â".

Some of these loops feature "typewriter" style resolume text, where the characters appear one at a time, as if it's being typed. Don't like black text on white boxes? These loops also feature a "toggle B/W" function to get plain white text on a black background-- perfect for compositing!

    • Hey SirGio, I’m afraid I can only support the most current version of Resolume avenue/arena, since there’s been so many bug fixes to the platform since Version 4.0 If you have a legit version of Resolume, there’s no reason you can’t upgrade for free however 😉

    • Yes– but you have to make sure you have the newest Flash plugin as well as the newest version of Arena. There’s a known bug on El Capitan for mac where all the flash plugins render only the red from the RGB values

    • Hey Alan,
      To use with Resolume, load your .swf file into your deck like you would any other movie clip .mov file. Open the “variables” or “text” window, and use the slider controls to change color, movement, or text.

  1. Hi there. Can it write text as it typed, like any text editor? For example, I want to type ‘Hello’, so when I type ‘H’, I see ‘H’ on the screen immediately, without confirmation? And after typing ‘e’, I see ‘He’ and so on… There is no such example in your demo video.

    • Unfortunately the way Resolume handles data input it only loads the text when you hit “enter”. That would be a cool function, however– I’ll see if I can come up with a workaround for that.

      In the meantime you can use the “typewriter” plugin to give the appearance of “typing” in text, since it makes one letter appear at a time.

  2. Hello i use Résolume 5.0 on windows 7 , when i put the swf on clip , the clip <window's become black , and i don't see any "variable" or "text" ( sorry for my english )

    • Hello Leopold,
      sorry you’re having problems with a plugin, I’m happy to help troubleshoot.

      Be sure to make sure that you have the most current version of the Flash plug-in installed on your machine– go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/. to download the most current version. Keep in mind that there can sometimes be issues with Resolume not being able to support a newer/older/current version of Flash– check the documentation for your version of Resolume for more information on playing Flash loops, and which version of the Flash plug-in that it supports.

      WINDOWS ONLY: You should also make sure that the Flash plugin SPECIFICALLY FOR INTERNET EXPLORER is the most current as well– for some reason Resolume really likes the IE version of flash to be the most updated.

      In addition, make sure that your version of Resolume is the most current– many bug fixes can be accomplished by having the most up-to-date version.

      If you still are having trouble, send me a screencap of the Resolume environment as well as your system specs and I’ll see if I can spot anything unusual.

      • It’s ok after i instal pluggin flash to internet explorer…i realy don’t understand why but it’s cool . Thank you very much !!!

    • Unfortunately loading system fonts at runtime is not something that the plugin is capable of. It’s an often-requested feature, so we’re looking into it.

  3. Hi the realtime typwriter always repeat the text when I write some more text to the box. Is there any option to turn of this kind of loop?
    thx

    • Hello Balázs, there’s a toggle button in the controls that says “Auto-Retype”. That will allow you to either loop the text or have it play once and stop.

    • If Resolume is crashing while you’re running Flash loops, be sure to make sure that you have the most current version of the Flash plug-in installed on your machine– go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/. to download the most current version. Keep in mind that there can sometimes be issues with Resolume not being able to support a newer/older/current version of Flash– check the documentation for your version of Resolume for more information on playing Flash loops, and which version of the Flash plug-in that it supports.

  4. Hi There,
    Thanks for your help. I have just looked the video cards. In the bios there were a switch options between the two video cards I had. I disabled and now it works perefectly. However when the autoretype function is turned I write something the typewriter is working good. But if I want to add some other words to my text I have to load whole text again. Do you have any solution for not to load whole text after adding other words?

  5. Hi Everyone,
    Is that possible to buy or get a Multiline text swf which is embedd all fonts that I have. I have already bought this swfs but what I actualy need is that. Please if you have sand it to me, thx: kovibali@gmail.com

    • Short answer is that pulling native fonts from a Resolume plugin is quite tricky due to Admin access restrictions. PM me using the contact form and I’ll see if I can help for your particular use-case.
