Recordings are available and accessible for one year after purchase.

This course is part of the VVVV Intermediate Program of Summer Season 2024.
This course is part of a FUSE Bundle consisting of 8 courses all together.


In this introductory workshop, we delve into the core principles of FUSE. We’ll explore how FUSE seamlessly integrates with vvvv gamma, empowering developers and artists with the ability to harness the full power of the GPU for visual programming. From understanding the basics to exploring advanced techniques, this workshop is your gateway to unlocking the potential of FUSE in your creative projects.


Course Outline

During this comprehensive introductory workshop, participants will:

  • Gain insight into the integration of FUSE with vvvv gamma and the Stride engine.
  • Learn to port ShaderToy creations to FUSE.
  • How to use tooltips and the viewer in FUSE for intuitive development.
  • Exploring the shader drawing techniques, from simple to advanced versions.
  • Understanding semantics in FUSE and how they influence programming.
  • Experiment with texture sampling and its applications in GPU programming.
  • Dive into the geometry stage and learn how to patch custom geometry shaders.
  • Discover control structures like if regions, for regions, and custom functions.
  • Harness the power of delegates for flexible and efficient programming.

Requirements

This workshop is ideal for both, vvvv users with an entry level looking to enter the world of GPU programming with FUSE and experienced developers seeking to deepen their understanding of its core principles. Join us as we embark on an exciting journey into the heart of FUSE and unlock its creative potential!

  • Eagerness to explore and experiment with GPU-based visual programming.
  • Willingness to engage in hands-on exercises and experimentation.
  • A basic understanding of vvvv gamma. 
  • A recent PC with stable internet connection
  • A windows machine as vvvv runs on Windows only
  • The latest build of vvvv gamma installed
  • Zoom Client installed (please test your audio setup beforehand)
  • 3-Button Mouse recommended
