Building a VJ patch mixer with cables.gl

In this session, our dear cables.gl user and VJ Pawel takes us on a journey through the creation of his video mixer, designed for the high demands of live concert performances. While this mixer is still a work in progress, it showcases the integration of multiple patches under one main program, allowing for highest control and flexibility. Using cables.gl's external render feature, Pawel demonstrates how to achieve full-screen previews. He also reveals how the mixer's controls are mapped to a MIDI controller, providing intuitive and hands-on manipulation of visuals.
