FFRend (Freeframe Renderer) is a free, open-source video effects renderer for Freeframe V1 plugins. It can interconnect any number of plugins in any configuration, automate their parameters using oscillators, and display the output full-screen while simultaneously recording it to an AVI file.
FFRend has a modular interface, includes an installer and comprehensive help, and supports MIDI, dual-monitor, and plugin authoring, plus parallel processing on multicore CPUs. Packages of free plugins are also available.
It is optimal for generating content, because it never drops frames, even if the project is too CPU-intensive to be rendered in real time. FFRend is also useful for live performances and art installations, and includes many state-of-the-art features found in professional VJ software.
