Fragmenter - animated loop machine
A downloadable tool for Windows and macOS
Fragmenter is a realtime animation app to create moving images, built around a unique looping animation engine. You can draw abstract kaleidoscopic animations in seconds, or create longer animations, bringing your drawings to life. Live-drawing features make Fragmenter a perfect tool for a vj with drawing skills. You can also sync the animation with music and create videos that have an unconventional hand-made look.
Fragmenter has been continuously developed since 2012. The first public desktop version was published in 2019. After a complete refresh of the user interface it is now available on itch.io since 2022. For further introduction, history and media see the Fragmenter homepage.
See the Quickstart guide to make your first steps using Fragmenter.
