Meadville, Pennsylvania – Video ASCII Art is a powerful video generator that converts digital movies into amazing looking text art videos. In addition to processing a wide variety of video files, Video ASCII Art also processes still photos. Multithreading uses all of your computer’s processors for blazing fast conversions on all types of video. Output art to both black/white text and full color, with the ability to export plain mp4, text, html, tif, and rtf files. A user editable character set adjusts the available characters to be used, while the maximum character width option controls the finished product size. Real time still image previews make for easy source image tweaking, allowing for the best possible results to be obtained.

Compatible source videos include, but are not limited to, mp4, m4v, mov, avi, mkv, mpg. Compatible images include jpeg, png, gif, bmp, psd, tif, tga, jpg, tiff, and more. Output quality greatly depends on the input file. Often images such as clip art work better than sources such as digital photos. High image contrast and a clean white background always helps. Your milage may vary, experiment!

We keep getting closer to releasing Birdie Golf! Today we finished implementing all of the player animations, now all that is left is a few tree textures! We’re really happy with how things turned out, stay tuned!

Video Fractal released by Nuclear Nova Software on Mac App Store

December 19, 2014 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  No Comments

Meadville, Pennsylvania – Video Fractal is a powerful tool for creating breathtaking videos of the Mandelbrot and Julia sets. The 2D view allows for easy surveying and key framing, and the custom script editor can be used to fine tune each video. Export MPEG-4 videos up to 4096 x 2048 resolution with up to 240 fps and 24 hour lengths using the state of the art ffmpeg library. 2D still exports are also available while the 3D view captures spectacular images that can be exported at up to 16 megapixel resolution. Multi-processor support and an OpenGL powered renderer allow for blazing fast speed. With double precision 64-bit mathematics, Fractal 3D is capable of resolving detailed images up to an incredible 1,000,000,000,000x magnification level! To give perspective, a single atom of carbon magnified one trillion times would be longer than two football fields. Each fractal is fully customizable and changes happening in real time. First adjust the fractal set type, equation power/ constants, iterations, resolution, color scheme, and smoothing options. Once the fractal is rendered it can be explored with intuitive panning and zooming controls. After a place of interest is found, customize the 3D view by rotating the fractal, moving the camera, and adjusting the lighting. Due to the nature of fractals, the number of unique patterns to be found is limitless. Use the rendered images for desktop wallpaper, printed artwork, or just enjoy the beauty of exploring one of a kind images created by pure mathematics.

Fractal information from Wikipedia – A fractal has been defined as “a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole,” a property called self-similarity. The term fractal was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fr?ctus meaning “broken” or “fractured.” A mathematical fractal is based on an equation that undergoes iteration, a form of feedback based on recursion. There are several examples of fractals, which are defined as portraying exact self-similarity, quasi self-similarity, or statistical self-similarity. While fractals are a mathematical construct, they are found in nature, which has led to their inclusion in artwork. They are useful in medicine, soil mechanics, seismology, and technical analysis. A fractal often has the following features: It has a fine structure at arbitrarily small scales. It is too irregular to be easily described in traditional Euclidean geometric language. It has a simple and recursive definition. Because they appear similar at all levels of magnification, fractals are often considered to be infinitely complex (in informal terms). Natural objects that are approximated by fractals to a degree include clouds, mountain ranges, lightning bolts, coastlines, snow flakes, various vegetables (cauliflower and broccoli), and animal coloration patterns. However, not all self-similar objects are fractals —for example, the real line (a straight Euclidean line) is formally self-similar but fails to have other fractal characteristics; for instance, it is regular enough to be described in Euclidean terms.

Video ASCII Art Preview

December 8, 2014 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  No Comments

We had so much fun making our Video Fractal app that we decided to to use the same technology to make another video creation utility, this time based on our ASCII Art program. Instead of converting images to still ASCII art pictures,  our app converts entire movie files! While it’s fun playing around with fractals, we see many more practical applications for ASCII art videos. We finally got something to show this morning, checkout the preview below! It’s a very rough preview, now comes there process of adding back all of the settings from ASCII Art in a nice user interface. If everything goes as well is with the Video Fractal app we expect to have this app submitted to Apple for review this week!
