eMotion is a tool for creating interactive motions of objects for live visual performances. Electronic motion seems often artificial, synthetic... well... in fact it does not convey any emotions. By defining new rules to create movements, eMotion is a new kind of software made for visual live animations. As it is based on real world physics law, all motions seems natural, full of emphasis. It allows to manipulate different kind of objects like still image, videos, text, drawing. Targeted mainly for theatre/dance performances, it can be used in broader situations.

ENG:

The program is interesting and lends itself t the trial. I use the system and motion with OSX 10.7 Lion and is unstable. Often closes especially if I write a text and not active ever since the new file menu and then to create a new document I have to save out of the program and reopen it. I hope Adriem be so kind as to put a new version for OSX Lion and I'll be happy to contribute financially to its work

ITA:


il programma è interessantissimo e si presta lla sperimentazione. Io uso e motion con il sistema OSX 10.7 Lion ed è instabile. Spesso si chiude specialmente se scrivo un Testo e non si attiva mai dal menù file il new e quindi per creare un nuovo documento devo salvare uscire dal programma e riaprirlo. Spero che Adriem sia così gentile da porre una nuova versione per OSX Lion e sarò felice di contribuire economicamente la suo lavoro

When you try to use the program eMotion 0.6.5.5, after show the interface, the programs says: "This eMotion version is out of date
Please check the website to download a new release". The same trying in another computer.
It's not posible to run this program and there aren't a new version here or on the eMotion website.
somebody knows how I can try this application?
Thanks!

Adrian, Great work, but hard to approach, even for experienced operators. Clearly there is so much possible. I would recommend some simple 3 minute screen captured tutorials reinforcing the usability and operational overviews.

It looks amazing. As well as performance art there are several other uses. Perhaps you could mention, for example, animating title sequences at the beginning of your description, in order to encourage readers to investigate further? And if you had Flash output, it would be good for creating animations for websites.

I just uploaded a new demo video : http://www.vimeo.com/2515709
It's demo of some possibilities using eMotion with a wiimote in IR mode (à la Johnny Chung Lee). The mac version of WiimoteWhiteboard by Uwe Schmidt is used to transmit the multipoints informations to eMotion via TUIO messages.

eMotion is a tool for creating interactive motions of objects for live visual performances. Electronic motion seems often artificial, synthetic... well... in fact it does not convey any emotions. By defining new rules to create movements, eMotion is a new kind of software made for visual live animations. As it is based on real world physics law, all motions seems natural, full of emphasis. It allows to manipulate different kind of objects like still image, videos, text, drawing. Targeted mainly for theatre/dance performances, it can be used in broader situations.

Main concepts : eMotion is based on objects (like particles, text, drawing strokes, quartz compositions). The creation of motion in the program is laid on a physical model, aka physical forces that are applied to the objects. The forces can be created by using �movement brushes�, or by defining a relation between a controller and a set of objects (for example a wiimote and some text). The objects are organized in layers, and each object can have his own sets of physical rules. The evolution of the physical rules along the time can be recorded in the script window. A script is the only way to record/save your animations.

To summarize:
  • physically based animation rules
  • multi representation particle system
  • layered behaviour
  • scriptable
  • incredibly smooth
  • support multi inputs interactions including Wiimote + nunchuk, sudden motion sensor, wacom tablet, midi, audio analysis, and by using Open Sound Control (osc) it can be extended virtually to any kind of controller.
  • link any physical parameters to the inputs
  • all is LIVE
It can be used for interactive installations, live performance, visual arts, strange subtitling, and so much more. imagination is your only bound. It can be seen as a "live-photoshop", and it want to be a simple but powerful solution to construct and explore the world that new technologies bring to live performances.

Written in cocoa, exclusively for Mac (10.5/intel), eMotion is still in alpha stage, some functionalities are not fully implemented, and the user interface needs a lot of work.
