Paint The Beat provides an intelligent canvas that lets you tap, stroke and swipe along with your favorite song or music to create moving digital visuals in conjunction with the music. Choreograph visuals to your favourite music and songs.
Choose between an in-place canvas or a canvas that scrolls like sheet music. Control the speed of scroll and the look of the time grid, bars and staves.
Start your soundtrack, pick a brush and express yourself! Interpret the music in your own style. Restart the music and add additional brushes and strokes. Build up a rich texture of visual marks, flows and colours.
A variety of brush types gives you creative control over the timeline visuals and allow you to match the output to the rhythm and mood of the music. Each brush also includes an array of editable parameters such as size, color, gravity, wind, particle drift, density, transparency and thickness, allowing a huge depth of artistic expression and creative direction. Select from many different brush types such as smooth strokes, circles, blooms, taps and ripples.
A playback panel allows you to fast‐forward and rewind through songs to add multiple layers of beautiful graphics; edit mode lets you delete unwanted strokes.
