    Default Squiggle in Beyond

    I finally got around to playing with the audio triggered functions in Beyond. The video is horrible quality since it was shot on a whim and I didn't feel like setting up for video. Midway through, I started playing with the wave forms a bit. Every time I pick up Beyond, I learn something new and it opens up another rabbit hole and makes me realize how much I don't know about the software. Hopefully YouTube doesn't block it because of the music.

    Those who fail to grasp art are the ones who criticize it.

    Here's another one. A bit better music to demonstrate. In this world of graphics and near perfect abstracts, a bit of random is nice.

    So you found the FFT stuff... what did you apply it to? Xpos/Ypos?

    That was my original thought, so I tried doing that in PangoScript but I don't think I know enough there to make this work. I'll be trying again though. Here was my first attempt:
    PHP Code:
    CodeName "Random"

    Autostart
    StopOnBlackout

    start
    :

    WaitForAudioBeat 1

    PositionX randomin 
    (-5050)
    PositionY randomin (-5050)

    goto 
    start 
    When that didn't yield the results I wanted, I went straight to the LD2000 abstract generator and applied FFT to quite a few of the fields there:

    The only thing I need to work on is that I want the color to change on the beat. Right now, the color changes at 0.5hz when triggered by FFT.

    Thanks! Unfortunately, Beyond did all the work!
