MilkDrop is a sound reactive visualization plug-in for the world renowned media player Winamp. It was created by Ryan Geiss who produced the ground breaking plug-in ĎGeissí many years ago which has been downloaded many millions of times.
The first time Milkdrop was posted here was 3-12-02 ver 1.02, a lot has changed since then. I believe rovastar posted 1.04 here not long after that. Since then milkdrop has gone open source, good move on AOLs part I guess, because I decided that milkdrop needed some love.
-each shape has its own texture; setting tex_capture to 0 will hold the texture for that shape, setting tex_capture to 1 will make it operate normally.
-the texture can now be shifted around, tex_cx and tex_cy are now the center of the
texture. (0..1) the shapes movement does not effect this.
-both custom shapes and waves can now be drawn in the background, i.e. before the effects
but after the motion vectors. Each shape/Wave has its own Draw in Background variable.
-Per-"Pixel" decay + separate decay var for each color channel. Decay_r/g/b takes on the
value of decay when they are equal to 0, to maintain compatibility with current presets.
-added 'q' like variables w1-w8, but they operate a little differently, they take on the value
of q1-q8 respectfully after the wave1 per-point code is executed, this is intended to be
used to pull the wave data from the wave(waveform or spectrum),
-added sound(freqlow,freqhigh) function, it returns the sum of the "sound" between
freqlow and freqhigh, be careful though this isnít an avg its a straight sum.
-now you can change the wrap mode of either the x or y axis (or both) for each shape+ the main preset. the var names for frame code are x_wrap_mode and y_wrap_mode, but they are also accessible from the menus.
-page up and page down will now go up or down 20 lines while editing code(doesnít mean much to end users but preset writers should love it).
-there are now 5 custom shapes and waves, I think I can up the waves all I want, but the shapes are limited because each one requires it's own texture.
-direct user control keys added, preset writers can now use the variables ctrlup, ctrldn, ctrllt, ctrlrt to allow the user to control something. When the user holds ctrl and hits up, down, left, or right the corresponding variable changes to one, until the user letís go of the key then it goes back to 0
-added wrap option for video echo, itís in the menus. Also in frame code x_echo_wrap, and y_echo_wrap.
Just drop the .dll file in your winamp/plugins folder, it wont overwrite the old version of milkdrop, and it uses the same config.ini. you can get presets for the beta version both at the winamp forums and at my website - where you can also find the full change log and get new updates as they come out(i'm not done adding feature yet)
The preview doesn't show much, but this is a very nice visualization plugin. Well done

@redi-jedi: Milkdrop works very fine. Itīs a nice Visualization. I knows it since 1.04 there it was great. But since 1.05 it works mutch better, I think it moves mutch better to the Music.
