The official Unity 3D tutorials

There is not a great deal of information on how to make visuals with Unity out there yet. We will suggest that you can look at how to control Unity with OSC and how to use Syphon with Unity. In the free “indie” version of Unity you unfortunately can’t use Syphon. You can however have Unity spread over two or more (?) screens so your window can contain both the interface and the output. To keept tabs on what’s possible to with Unity and visuals you can keep tabs on a project called Splash by Brad Hammond. It’s a VJ app created in Unity. You should also read this article from Create Digital Motion.
