Max 5 SDK released
Just in time for the developer workshop at IRCAM, I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just released the Max 5 SDK for writing external objects in C. What we’ve put together so far is (almost) a complete rewrite of the documentation I first wrote back in 1992 or so.
This is just the first pass, so expect a fair number of errors and incomplete information. We have much, more to document, but there should be enough text and examples to keep you busy for a while.
Visit the Cycling ’74 home page and you’ll find a link to the new SDK. One file covers both Mac and Windows development.
Thank you very much Mister Z.
I am looking forward to playing with this
Thanks again, and to the Cycling 74 crew as well, cheers…
It’s like Christmas in November!

Many USB WebCams are not plug and play with OS X. If your webcam is on the
