More Details

Our Resolume Avenue course provides a great overview of what is fast becoming the first-choice tool for people involved in live video. Resolume works in real-time and is therefore fast, easy and fun to use – without losing any of the power of traditional video mixing and processing environments.

We start from the ground up – covering the basics of cabling, setting up your project and getting a signal to to the projector or other video display. We will build our projects during the lesson, beginning with a basic crossfader setup and then moving on to add further complexity.
