eFX-ISF

By Effect plug-ins

The eFX-ISF plug-in enables you to use ‘ISF shaders‘ in your Live set. The eFX-ISF plug-in is optimised for filters/ FX shaders. The eISF plug-in is optimised for generative shaders.

Adding the eFX-ISF plug-in to your Live set

To add the eFX-ISF plug-in to your Live set, just drag the plug-in from the eFX folder in the EboSuite plug-ins folder on a group, return track, audio/MIDI track with EboSuite plug-ins or the master track. eFX-ISF plug-ins on the master track manipulate the image of the final mix. eFX-ISF plug-ins on individual tracks manipulate the visual output of that track.

Set the render resolution

The render resolution of the ISF shader is determined by the resolution of the video source on the track. ISF shaders can be very GPU demanding, so be aware that if you use large video sizes (e.g. >1080p) the frame rate might drop, especially when using multiple ISF shaders at the same time. Use smaller size videos (e.g. 720p or even 540p) or a combination to optimise the performance.

Opacity

Use the playback and opacity controls of the eClips, eSampler, eSimpler, eVideoIn or eVideoReceive plug-ins to start/ trigger the ISF shader and control its opacity.

More information

Most features of the eFX-ISF and the eISF plug-in work in the same way, learn more about how to use the eFX- ISF plug-in in the section of this manual about the eISF plug-in. There you’ll find more general information about ISF shaders as well.

Basic FX

By Effect plug-ins

eFX are modular, stackable visual effect plug-ins for realtime image manipulation and processing.

eFX plug-ins

Currently EboSuite comes with 33 eFX plug-ins: 

  • Bend – bend / creative distort effect 
  • BlockBlur – diffuse the image
  • BrCoSa – change brightness, contrast and saturation
  • BulgeTwist – creative distort effect
  • Chroma – make a color range transparant
  • Crosshatch – creative distort effect
  • DanPix – creative distort effect
  • Edge – add contrast to sharp color changes in the image
  • Glutch – creative distort effect
  • HSBShift – manipulate the color range / creative distort effect
  • HueRotate – manipulate the color range
  • HueSat – manipulate the saturation level
  • Kaleido – mirror and repeat parts of the image to create symmetrical patterns
  • Kaputt – creative distort effect
  • Levels – move and stretch the brightness levels of the image histogram
  • LoFi – creative distort effect
  • Median – average the colors in the image
  • Noise – creative distort effect
  • OneHue – focus on one color in the image and manipulate this color
  • Pointilize – convert the image in a set of black and white points
  • Polygonize – creative distort effect
  • RGB – adjust the red, green and blue channels
  • RGBShift – position and scale the red, green and blue channels
  • RotaZoom – tile and rotate the image
  • Shine – make the image glow
  • SineThreshold – creative distort effect
  • Slitscan – creative distort effect
  • Slitsglow – creative distort effect, especially useful for high contrast images
  • Wave – wave / creative distort effect
  • WaveGlass – creative distort effect 

Adding eFX plug-in to your Live set

To add a eFX plug-in to your Live set just drag the plug-in from the eFX folder in the EboSuite plug-ins folder on a group, return track, audio/MIDI track with EboSuite plug-ins or the master track. eFX plug-ins on the Master track manipulate the image of the final mix. eFX plug-ins on individual tracks manipulate the visual output of that track.

Grouping

You can group eFX and load them in an instrument rack. You can not load eFX plug-ins in a chain in a Rack.

Smooth

Each eFX plug-in has a Smooth controller. Use the Smooth controller to even out the motion of the effects. Increasing this parameter will make the eFX plug-ins ignore rapid value changes to reduce noise and to create a more continuous, fluent, natural motion.
