how to send the video from processing to max?

May 1, 2014 | 12:55 am

Hi guys,
I am using the processing to do a visual effect. And I’d like to mix it(the realtime video which is generated by processing, not just some data)within max. Any knows how to get the video from processing and use it within max?
Thanks a lot!

Well running processing sketches through syphon to Max is pretty cool. There are plenty of sketches out there that you can easily start digging in to.

But really Max will do everything that Processing does and so much more. You should check out this thread… http://cycling74.com/forums/topic/processing-js-in-max/

I basically convert processing sketches into java script and render them with mgraphics. It looks exactly as it would in processing. The only down side is that you do not have access to 3rd party java libraries.

Having everything in Max makes the creative flow so much better. You can easily control the sketch by sending java script commands as opposed to having to use OSC to send things to processing.
