software etc

hydra a live coding browser based video synthesis system
signal culture apps a variety of video processing applications (osx and windows 10 only)
r_e_c_u_r an open source diy raspberry pi based video sample player and processor
d_e_t_o_u_r an open source diy raspberry pi based framebuffer video delay and processor
vector synthesis library for vector synthesis in Pure Data
vsynth a video synthesis system for max/msp
software oscilloscope
the book of shaders just a fantastic intro to coding fragment shaders and also check their github for a lot of useful shader utilities
video_waaaves a software based video mixer plus framebuffer that also works as a chaotic synthesis system ​(full disclosure I wrote this program and it is a work in progress)
