Experiments in building a lighting effects engine in processing.
Previously I have a built lighting control software in Max/Msp using their Java library. I have used midi control data to effect this lighting desk. The results of which can be seen in some of my other videos. In this case I was literally playing the lights live using midi controls and recording the result in Ableton Live. This works great, and you can go back and edit etc. etc.
But there is something about effects that work so nicely. Especially if you want to do this stuff on the fly. So my experiments in Processing are a way of trying to make an effects engine for my lighting desk.
I am using Toxi Awesome libraries. And eventually I could actually build these objects in max obviously - as toxi's libraries are just JAVA.
But as usual processing is a lovely place to make prototypes, to visually display what it is that I am trying to achieve. It would be awesome to use Toxi's color libraries as well to effect the lights!!!.
