i’m completely new to VVVV and i’m liking it a lot, up till now. how ever coming from depth of MAX MSP, i’m most probably not the only person finding tons of obvious similarities.
i’d love to see any sort of documentation, that points out cross-references; relations between (MAX) objects and (VVVV) nodes – ones similar in both environments. is there anything out there? a “cheat sheet” for folks spilling over from MAX to VVVV, or vice versa?
those “similarities” are they look the same from far away. they differ in every other ways. seriously in every fucking way
it’s like comparing C# to Haskell. they both are programming languages written with the english alphabet and that’s what they have in common. oh wait C# has lambda functions too (in a completely different way though)
well, they’re both visual programming languages. for one. furthermore, they partially adress similar approaches and an even more similar clientel. there are various objects / nodes that are identical – many of which solely differ as for their name. this is what interest me and would simplify my life.
i think the hop from max to vvvv or vice versa is pretty plausible, where as jumping over to c-sharp is a quantum-leap, compared.
Uhm, telling from your avatar over at the cycling forums… I may be mistaken, but you look quite similar to some guy who (I think) happens to have the same name and lives in my town (Darmstadt).
So, in case this is not a coincidence and you’re that very guy, I could give you a quick walkthrough some time.
Looking through the forum, i haven’t found such a cheatsheet yet.
Coming from MAX/PD as well is really think that this would be a pretty cool thing to have. If i’m right and there is really NO such thing around, i could volunteer on that.
when i dug into VVVV some time ago, i have first been pretty intimidated from the differences between VVVV and MAX/PD, even though the visual representation suggests close similarities. i really think some comparison-sheet would be encouraging people who want to know what VVVV is all about (of course along with WESTBAM’s superb video tutorial).
