Multimedia Authoring – New Minisite

This marks the very final part of Semester 1, 2009 for me. We were given the option of completing our documentation for Multimedia Authoring 1 with either a video or website, which were due today. I chose the latter because of the non-action required for…

Code Development Well, against all odds, it would seem my final coding project is complete (or as complete as I’m willing to make it – adding more code is now making it all very unstable). In the end, there was a bit of a struggling…

Code Development In the midst of three different final assessments, my code has only been taking baby steps this week. I’m a long way from getting it complete and if it wasn’t for the saving grace of a few extra days with nothing else to…

Code Development Finally, the first element of my sketch is behaving itself. The RSS feeds are now appearing one beneath the other, and moving steadily down the page. This was a lot more difficult than I had first expected, and completed in no small part…

Code Development It’s going to be a recurring opening statement for my (late) journal entries this week that I’m officially now behind. A week of being sick, running a music stage at The Finders Keepers markets and an overly ambitious freelance schedule have all ganged…

Class Work We were introduced to sound within Processing this week. Using primarily the Minim library, we took a look at how to get sound both in and out of our sketches. I’m quite interested in how sound can be used in programming and installation…

Concept Research With the presentations held in last week’s tutorial, we had something of a respite from the weekly code editing and ‘hacking’ tasks. I probably should have been a little bit more proactive and done my own code work, but following the homework rush…

Code Research Launching into more chapters of Learning Processing over the break, I think I’ve come to the first point of really struggling with the concepts presented in the book. Making my way through ‘Functions’, ‘Objects’ and ‘Arrays’, I feel like we’re starting to get…

Class Work This week we were introduced to the concept of creating our own functions, as well as being given a Processing sketch that displayed the difference between the current and previous frame from a connected video camera. For anyone that has done any programming…

Class Work We moved on to dealing with the live input of a webcam this week. It’s a relatively small step within the entire spectrum of Processing functions, but it’s something that instantly offers up plenty of new possibilities when planning an interactive work. Adding…

Class Work Interestingly, the examples shown to us in the lectures thus far haven’t given me any ideas on how I want my own work to function. I think the open brief entitled “Transforming Mirrors” offers such a wide range of possibilities, however, a lot…

Multimedia Authoring – Week 01

Class Work So this is pretty much as basic as it gets: primitive shapes. Just coming to terms with Processing‘s coordinate system, as well as the basics of syntax within the Processing Development Environment (PDE). Points, lines, primitive shapes and stroke/fill colour Processing sketch removed…
