Has anyone here toyed around with making their own music videos and/or live visuals? If so, what software/hardware/other fun stuff do you use?
I've put together a simple-ish video to go along with my live set. Only ever used it at NEDS 2019, but now that I have my own projector, I'm hoping to break it out a little more. The only software I have available to me right now is the windows movie maker 2012, which is hot garbage as far as they go, but you can get some sorta-kinda-alright looking stuff out of it. Once I get around to upgrading my PC to windows 10 I might get openshot.
I've also been playing with basic stop-animation, done in a super-rudimentary fashion. Basically drawing and tracing stuff on notecards, taking photos of them, editing them to "fit" each other, and stringing them together in movie maker. It's a bit of an arduous process, so I doubt I'll utilize too too many of them in visual right now.
I haven't done any myself but I've played a couple of shows where we had an old school liquid light show. You shoot a projection of layers of colored oil swirling around in liquid with an overhead projector. It's super cool in conjunction with psychedelic music.
