Vision Factory is a multiplatform software (MacOSX / Windows) written in C++. It is aimed at creating real-time interactive visual animations by the programming of reusable and sharable plugins. Through its modular architecture, one can quickly build complex scenes by using data resources (images, webcam feed, sounds, osc/midi messages, web services, ...) through the use of dedicated built-in libraries.

Vision Factory relies on several third-party libraries and has numerous facets making it a rich framework for the experimentation and the creation of visuals. It is well suited for installation and/or vj shows for example and was primarly thought for easily handling a multi-computers rendering system by providing native network capabalities.
