STRING DNA


The STRING DNA plugin is based off of stringdna.com a generative art app that creates designs from any collection of letters, symbols and numbers. It creates a unique design for each string that can then evolve by adjusting just one character or changing the case of a letter.

The example video was recorded from Resolume Avenue to show some of the effects that can be achieved. Pardon the frame stuttering caused by my slow computer. I'm way overdue for an upgrade.

The ArKaos plugin has less configurable options and won't be able to achieve all the effects shown here.


How to use it:

You'll need to enter text in the text field of either app for visuals to be displayed. Enter multiple words separated by comma's. For example:

"Resolume,ArkAos,Visuals are cool,VJ's are rad"

Try repeating letters are patterns of text for a more interesting output:

"one one one,two two two,three three three"

or numbers:

"01000101,66666677777,7 6 5 4 3 23"

Symbols work as well but some seem to break it. I haven't narrowed it down yet as to what causes it.
