Max (Wikipedia) Max is a visual programming language for music and multimedia developed and maintained by San Francisco-based software company Cycling '74. During its 20-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists for creating recordings, performances, and installations. The Max program itself is modular, with most routines existing in the form of shared libraries. An API allows third-party development of new routines (called "external objects"). Miller Puckette originally wrote Max at IRCAM in the mid-1980s, as the Patcher editor for the Macintosh to provide composers with an authoring system for interactive computer music. In 1989, IRCAM developed and maintained a concurrent version of Max ported to the IRCAM Signal Processing Workstation for the NeXT (and later SGI and Linux), called Max/FTS (FTS standing for "Faster Than Sound", and being analogous to a forerunner to MSP enhanced by a hardware DSP board on the computer).
Millumin Syphon MadMapper tutorial : use multiple video inputs « 1024 Architecture Blog / MadMapper, Video Mapping, Quartz Composer plugins, whatever … Hi, in this tutorial we’ll use Modul8 to input multiple video sources in MadMapper. You can download the MadMapper demo here: MadMapper website Here’s what we’re after: 3 different videos mapped all over some cubes: We’ll need Modul8 2.6.2 or more to do this tutorial. So launch Modul8. Load up 3 different footages. Go to /Preferences/Preview Panel and set the preview ratio to 12 by 3 (which is 3 times 4 by 3). Assign your first video to the first layer. Make two more layers, and repeat the same procedure. Go to the preferences again, under the Misc tab, and set the Syphon output to 960 by 240 (which is 3 times 320 by 240): For the clarity of this tutorial, I’ve slightly added some color to help distinguish the quads: Now send Modul8′s output to MadMapper by enabling the Syphon output (Command-Y) Launch MadMapper. In the Media tab, double click “Modul8 Main View”, which should be listed under the Syphon section. Now load a background picture to test the mapping setup.
