Video Kaleidoscope Showing & Dynamic MIDI Generating System


    This semester I'm totally absorbed in this software, Max, after the recommendation of my teacher on the Multimedia Technology class. Then I download a trial and began to learn by myself .This patcher ,which I call it Video Kaleidoscope Showing & Dynamic MIDI Generating System(a bit too long,maybe = =),is my final work. It can load a video and mirrored it twice, then keep rotating it. With the rotate during the playing, the original video become strange but incredibly beautiful, like a kaleidoscope, especially showing in full screen.I also change the video into the one only contain black and white, and display in 3 pwindows with a little difference, as Original Video Channel, Soprano Video Channel and Basso Video Channel. The ratio of white color in these 3 pwindows determine the pitch that generated in the MIDI Generator. So different video generate its own different music, although it sounds a bit  noisy...:-PHere's some picture it generate~very beautiful, right?  :-P

      Hey, I am wondering if this would work on streaming video? I'm looking for a way to generate midi info for ableton from live digital painting in procreate. For the stream it starts in procreate, runs through quicktime, and then to twitch or another streaming app. If any of these app's data could be converted to midi, I'd be super excited. Any advise or resources? *note* I'm a total newbie to this stuff
      Thanks! Lexi
