Liquitex is the only one varnish we know to give good results on inkjet prints on paper.

Value. Varia.
- In interaction design see [Janet Murray].

Vanishing Point. [Kemp].


Varnish. The only one varnish efficient for inkjet prints is Liquitex. It does not solve the ink. Once a layer laid, the paper sheet is waterproof. (Rather expensive).

Vector, vectorial. [Agoston], [Foley], [Gonzalez], [Processing], [Photoshop].
- Breaking the pixel barrier. by Tobias Isenberg, M. Sheelag T. Carpendale and Mario Costa Sousa. Communication at Computational Aesthetics 2005.

- [Processing].
- In synthetic music, speed of key push on and off. See for instance Cubase, by Thierry Demougin et Eric Chautrand, Campus Press 2002).

Verbal. See speech.

Vibrato. A kind of texture in music. Frequently used with violin. In organs, some kind of vibrato is simulated as "human voice", playing on slightly difference of tuning on two registers. A primitive form of "synthesis".

- Video mapping. See mapping.

View, viewpoint (vue). [Kemp], [Foley].

Viral art, virus. Art using algorithms inspired by viruses, for example "eating" a work.
- Video of Viral Venture event, by Joseph Nechvatal (February 2011).
- See Wikipedia and (in French) our note in - biological or programmed, virus are dangerous,
- computer professionals prefer to hush about such subjects
- humanists and anti-technologists don't like that.

Virtual, virtual reality. See specific notice.


- Visceral mobile music systems. by Atau Tanaka. 15 pages in [Adams].

Visual Effects (aka VFX).
- "In filmmaking, visual effects (abbreviated VFX) are the processes by which imagery is created and/or manipulated outside the context of a live action shot." (Wikipedia).
- In the context of film and television production, a visual effects supervisor is responsible for achieving the creative aims of the director and/or producers through the use of visual effects. (Wikipedia).
