Suited for both hobby and professional use, COLORCODE VJ quickly turns your iPad into a VJ tool. At your home or at an event, it's never been easier to become a VJ!
COLORCODE VJ can switch and display movies, images, and texts. You can also output to external displays via separately available adapters (*1).
***We stongly recommend to use with iPad2, because of the hardware limitations (lack of CPU power and available memory) of iPad1. It will be difficult to use comfortably with iPad1.

=COLORCODE VJ Basics=
- COLORCODE VJ has 2 modes of operation.
Edit mode for preparing your VJ play, and Play mode for performing the actual VJ play.
Note that output to external display will be disabled under Edit mode.
- Is an external display a must? Absolutely not!
COLORCODE VJ will work perfectly fine with just your iPad.
It's a lot more fun with an external monitor though!
- In iPad, since there are few memories and the capability of CPU is also low, the COLORCODEVJ cannot run comfortably.

Ratings and Reviews
Used it for well over a year, love it, use it in front of live audiences.
I felt compelled to rate this product as I don't think it deserves the few stars it has.
I use this in a live band setting. I find its very responsive. I've yet to have any performance issues while playing back at any resolution. Yea, I struggled to figure out how to load things but that's the crazy I tunes iOS interface not the app. Just load a usb stick with your video to your pc itunes device. Go to the ipad selection on the left, load it, and look for the apps tab. Go to colorcode and just import from the usb stick. once its linked to itunes colorcode will allow you to add it. i use it on a gen 2 iPad and a new gen ipad one. (Never tried a mini)
Only thing I would like to see is the ability to tell the thumb icon what image to use. The app seems just slightly off of what the windows media player or Corel video studio pro system uses so if you have long fade ins of 5-6 seconds it usually just shows a black screen on the thumb.
Very useful utility vj app
Have used in live settings and in a pinch could be all I need to work a vj gig. Have never had the app crash on me. And if I load all videos as m4v, I have room more hours of footage than I have ever needed.
That said I like to use the mixer cross fader as a compositional tool not just a way to segue between clips. So one option I would LOVE to see would be to switch the cross fader from a straight dissolve to something more like a tolerance level adjuster on a luma or color key. Even without the option for any real effects I think an option like this would put them miles ahead of all other available VJ apps.
That said I thoroughly enjoy this app and have found it immensely useful.
Amazing that it runs on iPad1 but it's annoying that Output Size: Fill Screen doesn't actually fill the screen. Going fullscreen in the Apple Videos player doesn't leave any borders so it's technically possible. Maybe someday we'll get an update.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
