In the creator's on words, Cathodemer is a pixel-based video synthesizer and CRT display simulator software for VJ's, video artists and animators. video production instrument with a CRT display simulator! It features analog-style RGB signal oscillation synthesis, input source mixing and manipulation, recursive color shape synthesis, sprite animation engine and various classic video effects. All parameters can be controlled via MIDI and audio input. Video output can be projected to video projector, rendered to file or routed to other video applications via framesharing. It can be glitchy, and it loves to crash, but the things you can create with it you just cant create with any other piece of software! I can highly reccomend you support the creator and give it a try. You can buy it on steam :3

Pixatool is a pixel art converter/pallete swapper! It's what I use to compress and stylize my personal photos when uploading them here to my site!
