I haven’t received my new video camera yet so I will have to delay the post about my audio mixer ~ so I decided to post some example of other project I am tinkering with. This is a small video project that I did in processing. This is only the output of the project. video processing screen shot

I am using an eyetoy – the web cam for the playstation2 that I got on ebay for 99c, and running the project on pure:dyne. In order to use video on processing in linux, you need to use an extra video library gsvideo. It’s a really great library that work really well and that is really fast. I read previously that video on processing in linux could be hard – but it is really easy and fun.

Here is the code ~ it’s created half randomly testing rotation, pop and push matrix,a dding some structures in 3d:

import codeanticode.gsvideo.*;
GSCapture cam;
float a = 0; // the variable used for the rotation

void setup() {
size(800, 600,P3D);
cam = new GSCapture(this, 320, 240);
}

void draw() {
background(0);
camera(-1000+mouseX*6, -1000+mouseY*6, 800, 90.0, 50.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0); // camera controled by the mouse

if (cam.available() == true) {
cam.read();
filter(DILATE); //some test on filters - I wasn't too sucessful yet
translate(320,240);

pushMatrix(); // here is the construction of the
rotateY(a*PI); // video - a bit a random trying to create shape and mouvements
image(cam, -320,-240,320,240);
image(cam, 0,0,320,240);
image(cam, 320,240,20,40);
image(cam, -620,-340,80,70);
image(cam, -320,-240,320,240);
image(cam, -320,-240,320,240);
image(cam, -320,-240,320,240);
stroke(255,0,0);
noFill();
box(120);
rotateX(PI/2);
image(cam, -320,-240,320,240);

for (int i = 0; i < mouseY/20; i++){
image(cam, random(0,(width-164)),random(0,(height-48)),64,48);
}
popMatrix();
pushMatrix();

rotateY(a*PI+PI/2);
image(cam, -320,-240,320,240);
rotateX(a*PI+PI/2);
image(cam, -320,-240,320,240);
rotate((-a));
box(80);
popMatrix();

a = a+0.01; // for the rotation
}
}

And here is an output of the video. The movement is controled by the mouse
