I have the dream of combining Processing and Max/MSP/Jitter, so that I may use each for what it is best at! :D
I want to use Processing to create "Sketches", or "Visual Synthesizers", but to then host these in the Max environment, using this to control and combine them.
To achieve this, I want to be able to take the visual output from each sketch, and use this as a video source in Jitter. Ideally this would not just be RGB, but also include a fourth Alpha channel, so that I may combine the output of multiple Sketches running in parallel by the use of layering.
Has anyone out there done something similar, or perhaps have any suggestions on how this may be achieved?
I am a software engineer, and though many years have passed since I last wrote anything in Java, I will not hesitate to learn it again, if that is what is necessary to achieve this :)
