Where to start!
The most important question you have to ask yourself is: What do I want to do with the software? Some software is technically very advanced but not that user friendly. If you just want some cool background images with logos on the screen and do an instart once in a while or you are a DJ that wants to show a sequence of images with his logo and some background animations, then probably a simple software like Neuromixer will work for you.
Resolume is probably the most used VJ software on the market. It has two versions: Avenue and Arena. Arena is more professional and has more creative video mapping options. Avenue will, in most cases, be more than enough for a big performance. In our Quickstart Tutorials section you’ll find some free training.
