i've been doing live drawing performances with improvising musicians for a while now, using a wacom tablet and corel painter - i choose brushes and color on the screen of my powerbook, and i paint the stage with a projector thats hooked up to the video out. it's a solid setup but using painter is a bit of a bastardisation.
now i wanna move on to using a real live performance rig. ideally i'd like to be able to change color/brushes with a midi keyboard.
also i imagine it'd be cool to have the line fade with time, so i can keep drawing over the same image without too much visual build-up.
my question: is jitter a viable option for achieving this?
my concerns are whether i can aproximate the smoothness of the painter brushes, and whether something like this is achievable with a reasonable amount of effort.
i'm a newbie to jitter but i have some experience in c++/openGL/mel script so i'm not scared of getting my hands dirty.
