Basic Visuals


    Nov 06 2009 | 3:41 pm
    Hi,
    I currently have a MAX/MSP patch which processes TouchOSC, and control DMX lighting via my Arduino & DIY DMX Shield.
    I am really interested in creating a visual effect which will change colour with my RGB sliders for DMX, I also want the visual to respond to sound.
    Now I have been looking at other peoples visuals and become very confused, so I think I need to start with the basics, can anyone help or point me in the right direction?
    Thanks, Jack

      did you do all of the jitter tutorials ?

      jit.scalebias for direct color changing of images or video. besides that there are dozens more effects you can play with.
      For audio it really depends, snapshot~ can give you amplitudes to play with, or some fft~ to utilize frequency analysis for the visuals.
      Try making some controllable, yet automatic ramps to change simple numerical values, use [scale] as needed, and apply them to your RGB levels. Also you can go HSL and send those values through [swatch], sometimes this is more intuitive to deal with color choice.

      I think I'm going to use processing for my visual, I think I will achieve better results.
