December 13, 2023

The following is a guest post by Gunnison Wenzinger, who’s currently immersing himself in AWS, Unreal Engine, and generative AI to expand his skill set. Gunnison enjoys identifying practical applications for technology, whether for personal use or aiding local bands in enhancing their visibility. You can connect with Gunnison on LinkedIn.


Using video production tools will help bring out the full potential of live performances by combining artistic vision with advanced technology. Video producers can create captivating visuals that elevate live performances, engage audiences, and contribute to the growth of the local music community.

Video production plays a crucial role in supporting local bands by seamlessly integrating visual elements that complement and enhance the musicians’ artistry. Through techniques such as video editing, cinematography, and visual effects – combined with tools like the Wacom Cintiq Pro and vMix – video producers bring the band’s music to life using visuals. This includes capturing live performances, crafting music videos, and designing concert visuals to boost the band’s presence, engage the audience, and contribute to the overall success of the local music scene.

The Advantages of Using a Wacom Cintiq Pro in Video Projects

The Wacom Cintiq Pro offers a range of features that make it an indispensable tool for video production, especially in dimly lit venues. Its high-resolution touch screen and pressure-sensitive pen allow video producers to have precise control over their digital content, even in low-light conditions. The Cintiq Pro’s vivid display and color accuracy ensure that every visual detail is faithfully represented, enhancing the immersive experience for the audience.

In dark venues, where visibility can be challenging, the Cintiq Pro stands out as a video master control solution. Its customizable buttons and touch controls provide quick access to frequently used functions, enabling producers to navigate through complex software interfaces effortlessly.

Another benefit of the Cintiq Pro’s intuitive touch screen interface is that it eliminates the need for traditional keyboard and mouse setups. This allows video producers to make real-time changes without disrupting the flow of the performance. This level of control and flexibility empowers producers to adapt to unforeseen circumstances and make adjustments on the fly.

How vMix Enhances Video Production for Local Bands

When paired with the Wacom Cintiq Pro, vMix takes video production for local bands to new heights. This comprehensive live video production and streaming software offers a wealth of features designed to create dynamic and engaging visuals.

One standout feature of vMix is its ability to seamlessly switch between multiple camera angles, allowing video producers to capture different perspectives of the band’s performance. This multi-camera setup, combined with the Cintiq’s touch screen interface, enables producers to monitor and control camera feeds in real-time, ensuring that every important moment is captured and displayed flawlessly.

vMix Overview and Demo

Furthermore, vMix integrates real-time graphics and animations, adding a visually captivating layer to live performances. Producers can incorporate lower-thirds, title cards, and animated overlays that synchronize with the music. The Cintiq’s touch-sensitive screen empowers producers to manipulate and customize these graphics effortlessly, enhancing the visual impact of the band’s performance.

The Big Takeaways

Video production plays a crucial role in supporting local bands and amplifying their music. With tools like Wacom Cintiq and vMix, video producers can unleash their creativity, seamlessly integrate visuals, and create captivating experiences for the audience. The Cintiq’s interactive touch screen and pressure-sensitive pen provide precise control and enhance workflow efficiency, even in dimly lit venues.

Combined with vMix’s comprehensive live video production software, which offers multi-camera switching and real-time graphics integration, these tools open up boundless possibilities for creating immersive and engaging visuals. By using these tools, video producers can contribute to the growth of the local music scene and make a lasting impact on both the bands and their dedicated fans.

A magical midnight forest... 🌲🌙🦉🎨🖌️⁣
That's what @yingshiart was conjuring in this amazing piece #MadeWithWacom. Tayler loves using color to evoke emotion and fullness in her paintings, and liberally uses adjustment layers, filters, and gradient maps. She trusts the creative process and lets go, allowing the subconscious to put one hand on the wheel instead of micromanaging every detail. ⁣
