What is Smode?

Do it all using a unique platform, in real-time, with no limits

With SMODE, everything is real-time:

  • Compose images, video files, live video feeds, real-time compositions and 3D content and create powerful real-time compositing,
  • Connect your real-time compositions with a wide range of devices including cameras, audio feeds, MIDI controllers, lighting desks and stream-decks,
  • Generate images with generative and interactive algorithms,
  • Animate visuals and shows with a combination of live-controlled parameters, loops and pre-written timelines,
  • Simulate the final look of your event at every step of its creation, and...
  • Deliver amazing shows!

SMODE is able to handle visuals in any kind of show or installation, regardless of its size or complexity.

Real-time compositing

Compositing images in real-time is the cornerstone of SMODE.

Thanks to modern GPU computing capacities, all graphical processing usually made in pre- or post-production can now be done in real-time.

Bridging the gap between traditional compositing, VFX and real-time, real-time compositions are at the heart of SMODE: pieces of content rendered in real-time, created by the content design team, finalized and displayed on-site by the operating team.

What is Smode?

Review and validate changes in real-time

All SMODE parameters can be changed at any time with an immediate impact on the final result.

Explore content combinations / adaptations and validate them directly either on simulation or live with the artistic director.

SMODE significantly increases the efficiency of the video encoding process during the whole pre-production and production cycle.

Made for designers

SMODE was created by and for content designers: no scripts, no graph-based program, no need to know shaders’ magic, it’s all about layers, modifiers and masks.

SMODE includes beautiful presets, examples, templates, compositing and video-mapping engine for creators, designers & artists to create stunning graphics with maximum flexibility and minimal technical knowledge.

Made for operators

SMODE gives video operators superpowers: SMODE was designed to make the action / reaction loop faster and to empower operators thanks to its friendly user interface, remote interface and external controllers such as streamdecks and lighting desks.
