FUSE Bundle

FUSE Hero Image: A Particle collides with a Signed Distant Field

FUSE has emerged as a prominent force in the realm of real-time content creation. Collaborating with pioneers like Refik Anadol and other development partners, it has established itself as the premier choice for real-time rendering in creative software studios globally. A ground-breaking VL library for vvvv,  FUSE is making waves in the world of real-time content creation. For further information can be found here: FUSE Library Website, FUSE Library on GitHub, VVVV Website

FUSE is an open-source library designed for visually programming on the GPU, facilitating rapid workflows and modular approaches to accelerated graphics, logic, and computation. Created for use in vvvv gamma, FUSE embodies the ‘always runtime’ model, eliminating the need for build or compile processes, thus providing a seamless and instant design and programming experience. With the integration of the Stride 3D Engine in vvvv, FUSE enables the creation of advanced visuals including PBR materials, lighting, and post-effects, all achievable without writing a single line of code.

Christian Riekoff (aka @texone), a media artist based in Schwerin, will lead our series of courses on FUSE. He studied Experimental Media Design at the Berlin University of the Arts and Media Programming at the University of Applied Science Berlin. Christian’s work mainly focuses on interactive installations, generative systems and kinetic sculptures, merging a love for code with design skills.
