Welcome to Composer! 

Composer is an advanced real-time video editing software designed for dynamic video composition, color correction, chroma-keying, visual effects, and live streaming.

Purpose-built for high-performance, 24/7 video editing without dropped frames or loss in quality, Composer offers unlimited video sources, visual effects, compositions/layers, and outputs. The only limits are your computer’s CPU, GPU, and memory. You can run as many video feeds, visual effects, and compositions as your system resources allow.

This in-depth guide explains how to use Composer for live streaming and video compositing. It covers the desktop and runtime versions of the software, including how to optimize performance, monitor your system, and deploy Composer to various runtime environments.

Composer is part of the Vindral product suite, which also includes Vindral Live CDN. Composer integrates seamlessly with Vindral Live CDN to enable an end-to-end, ultra-low latency streaming solution powered by real-time video editing and dynamic video compositions.

Together, Composer and Vindral Live CDN provide a scalable, high-performance live-streaming platform for events, broadcasts, and more. Composer ingests multiple video feeds and applies visual effects, color correction, chroma-keying, and compositions in real time, outputting the final stream to Vindral Live CDN for global content delivery at sub-second latency.

Composer also supports 3rd party CDN-providers.
