I’ve made a patch for an interactive installation that will be presented next week. It grabs video from a fire-i camera and from its blobs alters a fractal realtime synthesis and audio noise processing.
The question is this: how can I improve the patch performance? the image will be projected and I really don’t care about the computer monitor neither the patch interface. It is meant to be independent, just turn it on and thats all. So, I need to know the best "performance options" configuration to suck the most of the computer resources.
It is a iMac core duo 2.66 Mhz, 320 HD, radeon 256 MB, 2 gb RAM.
Is there also any tip to make the OS more efficient?
