I am building a prototype for a compositional game in max/msp but I need some tips for creating the visual interface. All the player interaction will be taking place in the interface (controlled by clicking and dragging with a mouse) and there will be little quirky characters, which will essentially be the sound objects. I am working with an animator/designer who will be creating the visual aspects of the game. It doesn't need to be rich at this point, but there will need to be animated objects.
I am wondering can the interface be created in flash, and interactions take place in flash that then message max/msp to trigger the appropriate arguments?
Any suggestions would be great, a friend of mine has given me an e-mail address for someone who is into java scripting also
I am confident with creating the audio events in max/msp, but not at all confident with the interface yet, apart from knowing what I want to see
So is there a decent program that will work well with max, or would it be easier again to keep it internal to max (bear in mind the animated characters that will be doing things)
