Smode

is a revolutionary real-time compositing and generative content technology developed by D/Labs. Thanks to real-time rendering, many things can be changed at the crucial — and most costly — time: when the stage, director, actors, lighting, sound, and cameras are available. This turns Smode into an incredible booster of creativity and aesthetic that deeply changes the approach to video content encoding and manipulation in the event and entertainment industries.

What is Smode ?

REAL TIME COMPOSITING WORKFLOW

Combine 2D & 3D layers, effects, particles and shaders into powerful real-time compositions in a straightforward and scalable manner. Change any parameter at anytime, see the result immediately! Validate changes in real-time with the artistic director and/or the client. Live-compositing and live-editing across all stages of the production, from the 3D simulated stage to the actual stage.

TREMENDOUSLY FAST RENDERING

Hundreds of 2D layers or millions of particles,
no worries, the GPU takes care of it!
Ultra-fast rendering to video
up to 100 frames of HD video rendering per second
Work with 4K, 6K, 8K or even larger content resolutions!

BY & FOR CONTENT DESIGNERS

Smode has been conceived by and for content designer:
no need to be programming expert, Smode is only about layers, modifiers and masks.
Layer-based and well-structured: all things remain organized and simple to share between collaborators. Powerful video-oriented timeline-based and cue-based animation engine.

FROM THE VIEWPORT TO THE STAGE

Do live video-preview of your compositions thanks to the
3D stage simulator for video mapping and led mapping.
Let the magic appear on stage when showtime comes, simply by switching to the actual video projector and LED video outputs! Continue live-compositing and live-editing in harmony
with the stage, director, actors, lighting, sound, and cameras.

ANYTHING REACTIVE AND GENERATIVE

Create interactive compositions driven by video cameras, audio input, SPOUT inputs and MIDI/OSC/DMX/Art-Net control. Infinite number of combinations of dynamically chainable 2D and 3D modifiers (effects) and masks for visuals generation. Integrate your own GLSL shaders into your compositions.
