Learn processing to learn vvvv?

Hi,

I’m new to all this real time video stuff. Made a few newb patches like basic video feedback and an audio responsive EQ so far… it’s all really exciting. I come from a pre-rendered background, after effects, PS, cinema4d etc.

I want to learn vvvv because I am really interested in the realtime performance side of things.

I was recommended that if I like vvvv I shud check out processing.

I did, and they have loads of great resources for learning the math theory, using processing merely as a tool to learn.

So my question is, do you think it’s a good idea to learn processing and vvvv together? Is the basic math theory the same? Or am I likely to just get confused?

hi.

as i see it, its two totally different working methods.

processing - pure code writing (which has its beauty)

vvvv - easier handling of complex datablocks, you trigger pure code what other people wrote (this has the beauty of clear sight)

i don’t think you can get mixed upbetween this two while learning. theyre very different.
and math theory, physics etc, is just the same in all languages

Both are really cool . i´m doing the same i´m newbie . but let me tell you that if you “experiment” with any software together the faster you learn … at least is working for me . just study everyday and see the results …

sorry for my dadaistic english . greetings from méxico …

thanks for the advice, I’ll continue to learn both as I think it all compliments one another really, and I think getting a better understanding of object orientated programming with Processing will help me with my After Effects expressions too :)

tada

I think learning any non-graphical code based programming lang is important so you can understand the foundations and logic of computers. You take these skills, learn c# and write your own nodes for vvvv which is so powerful. learn to learn agreed.
