The mix of skills required to do the world’s best [...] content is pretty intimidating, because it’s video, it’s audio, it’s programming, and it’s interactive. It’s hard, just like any other new media.

Marduq Hands-on
Make interactive video today

No matter how you spin it, making interactive video requires a lot of (web) technology. Still, we want filmmakers to feel just as at home as web developers or content editors.

We get that making videos is about production, actors, music, cameras, storyboards, and scripts.
We don't want you to have to change the way you work now only to be able to use our tools.

Familiair Tools
AEX en Premiere

So we have studied programs as Adobe After Effects and Premiere and tried to work what we learned into our interface. So there is no need to relearn everything.
For instance. you can use tracking data straight out of After Effects, and we note all time in standard SMPTE format.

We use the same layout and have adopted the same key-bindings as the Adobe tools. All in all, we've tried to make you at home as possible.

Dynamic Titling
Add and edit on the fly

Creating your titles in Marduq has many advantages. It can be easily adapted without the need to re-render the video

It is as simple to place titles as it is in After Effects, we support a wide range of (google) Fonts and the size of the letters scale with the video as you would expect it to. Just like it would scale if the letters were rendered into the video.

Dynamic Paths through your video
met Google Spreadsheets

We try to develop tools that fit in with the way you already work. We found that most creatives like to write their scripts for Interactive Movies in programs like Microsoft Excel or Google Spreadsheets. This got us thinking.
Why would we need to tediously copy a document that, -- properly ordered -- is the configuration itself.

So we got working on a direct link from Marduq to a Google Spreadsheet of your choosing. Just invite the Marduq Maintenance worker to your document and you are on your way

What's a Nabu?( 𒀭𒀝 )

Nabu was the Mesopotamian god of Writing. A son of Marduq ( 𒀭𒀫𒌓 ) and Serpanitum. He is usually depicted as a First Minister or a Scribe.

Nabu keeps the records and reads the books. He sets in stone for the future. Everything written is remembered and recited by Nabu's void. Nabu can be heard when reading silently.

Sometimes the inner voice warps and spins and echo's the laughter of the writing god.
