Datamoshing – making VFX using free software

Have you datamoshed yet?

Here is an example of one of my datamoshing efforts.

This was created for a Deerhoof show which Slinky and Snudis VJ’d at.

Datamoshing is a great way to create interesting video effects using freely available software. I first learned about it after watching a how-to video on youtube by Court13. On their website, they have a free download kit that gets you started brilliantly on your way to datamoshing. All the software for osx can be found (for free) at: wwwcourt13.com/datamoshkit.zip
