I have been hearing more and more about VVVV. If you are a fan of Processing, then you’ll surely be a fan of VVVV. The results are amazing, both the screenshots and videos, it is worth a look for its inspiration alone. And if you’re interested in a visual programming interface for real-time video creation, this is a fascinating software:

vvvv is a toolkit for real time video synthesis. It is designed to facilitate the handling of large media environments with physical interfaces, real-time motion graphics, audio and video that can interact with many users simultaneously. vvvv uses a visual programming interface. Therefore it provides a graphical programming language for easy prototyping and development. vvvv is real time. where many other languages have distinct modes for building and running programs, vvvv only has one mode – runtime. vvvv is free for non-commercial use. Commercial use requires a license. Get the latest version from the Download section.

Download VVVV here. And you can scope out the interface screenshots here. And check out the software features through their propaganda here.
