I actually made this quite a while ago, but decided to revisit it as I thought that I might do a little more in Processing this year. I know I’ve said that before. There’s no guarantee that I will in 2020, but I might.
I was always quite pleased with this sketch though. It was fun and interesting to play with. Above is just a video of the sketch in action as I can’t work out how to embed the sketch here so it can be played. I’d like to be able to do that too, but it might take me a little while for me to figure it out.
Anyway, if I managed to do anything else with Processing then I’ll share it too. That is, if it’s good enough.
I’ve been getting back into Processing 3. As I said when it first arrived, it’s been a while since I made things with Processing, but this version looks so much better than what’s gone before. Installing libraries and tools is now just so easy. It’s amazing. It feels like I really need to get back to making some stuff with Processing again.
I do like Processing, although it’s been a while since I made anything with it. It looks like Processing is getting even better, with a new user interface which they’re continuing to develop post 3.0.
This comes on the heals of Codepoems, a new IDE for Processing, which I was considering trying out. I’ve no idea of whether or not Codepoems will work with Processing 3, that’s probably the next step for me.
I’ve been messing around with Processing JS for a few days as it seems to be easier to put .js sketches into a web site than standard Processing sketches, and it is. But, whilst it makes a lot of sense to use processing.js with WordPress, sadly processing.js isn’t so good at audio, and a lot of my processing stuff is audio related.
So I’m going back to straight Processing for now as I know I can get the audio librarys to work with that.
