Looking for software that generates visuals from sound which I can then save as a video file. Any idea's appreciated. TIA
 
Hi all.
Apologies if this is the wrong group.
I'm looking for some software that will take the output of my sound
card as a source and then generate random images based on the pulses
of the music which I can then save as a AVI, MPEG, WMV etc. A good
example of what I mean would be the old "light to sound" disco boxes
only I would be able to save the output (in this case the flashing
lights) to a video file.
TIA.

Windows media player can generate moving patterns influenced by sound
patterns. I'm sure there must be other audio players with this feature.

Software for "screen video capture" should be able to record those
patterns. "Camtasia" is one I've heard good things about. Never tried
myself, though.

Although yourself and the previous poster are right about Windows
Media Player and virtually all other media players generating the
visuals from sound, none of them seem to allow the process to be saved
as a video file which I can then edit in a video editor. All the
screen capture programs I have tried are not sensitive enough. It
seems no matter the power of the machine Camtasia and progs like it
are great for recording unsubtle mouse movements but cannot manage
waves, explosions, colour fades etc without being jerky which makes
lining up the video with the soundtrack impossible.
Thanks for your suggestions.

Agreed that it seems to take a ton of processing power to make these high
res video capture programs run even sluggishly. I've done some work with
4.6 GHZ dual core Athlon 64 systems with 2-4 GB of RAM, on-board and plug-in
video interfaces, and not found total happiness.

One approach might be to use a video card or other device that converts the
artistic rendering on the screen to a TV video format signal. Many video
cards provide video output jacks. Then capturd the video signal with an
external video capture device such as a stand-alone DVD recorder or other
kind of digital video recorder. It is now possible to set up cost-effective
a system like this that is based on Component Video, which does a pretty
good job with DVD format video (720 x 480).

Try these:-
G-force - www.soundspectrum.com. 2D, pretty easy on the processor
and
R4 - http://www.rabidhamster.org/R4/main.php 3D, my favourite visualiser -
proper 3D, you can add your own pics, scripts etc and is the only one I've
found that actually moves convincingly to the music.
pretty sure both allow o/p to be recorded
