Directions about VVVV+arduino

There is this project, for my thesis. It’s about playing some video with vvvv and send the signal to a group of leds.

i’m looking for the vvvv patches and the arduino codes, anyone who done it before that can send me some directions

get values from textures using the pipet node.
then arduino

hi chev,

you should look into shift registers with PWM functionality. it might be tedious wiring though. maybe a dmx driven led panel can get you much further, if you are working with grid of LEDs anyway (according to your sketch).

greetz!

I’ve done exactly this with a teensy board, which is an ARM powered clone of arduino, you can control upto 1000 odd LED’s from 1 board, although if its for your thesis, that might be cheating!
