Twitter tool for Modul8

For our next VJ Gig, at Hoorspel Amsterdam, we want to mix live Twitter messages into our VJ set. I’ve already built several Twitter tools in Flash, and Modul8 (our favorite VJ tool) supports SWF files. To control how the SWF that’s inside Modul8 behaves, I built an external SWF controller. This way the audience won’t see the interactive controls of the flash movie. I discovered that a SWF inside Modul8 won’t connect to the internet, but this was also solved by using the external controller.

This screenshot shows the modul8 environment with the SWF Twitter layer on top of an image, and the external controller in it’s own window.

I’ve built an online demo where the external controller is visible in the animation, but this way you can try out the various Twitter animations:

There’s also a small youtube video but it’s very choppy. You can see how the twitter messages are fully editable in the Modul8 environment.
