I dont need to bridge video content into PB, but object coordinates and rotations.
I figured how keyframes are stored in the PB XML, and I can alter them and also add new ones in the XML file. But I’m a bit apprehensive of that method on an automated scale, since the referencing in the PB XML is somewhat intransparent and I dont want to mess with the XML integrity …
Sorry to pick up that old post. But I have a question in that one: does anyone has experience with using both softwares together. Would be interested in all kind of experiences. What you did and how you connected both tools.
I working with Pandoras Box most of the time (not a server but a custom PC with 2 player dongle and a separate notebook with a manager). I’m quite happy with it cause it saves me a lot of time and is very powerful and stable. With the widget designer I’m also able to process data and influence the video easily.
The only thing I’m missing from vvvv is to create really generative ‘content’. Now I have a project with arduino and xbee and sensors and I want the sensors to create a rising particle cloud. If a person connected to the wireless sensors rises his arms and creates a cloud of particles that mirrow the movement. It works great in vvvv. To mix it easily with my other content for this dance piece I would like to stream it to Pandora.
But: I don’t have an input card. So any suggestions? Or experiences?
I tried dxtory but it seems unstable a dropped many frames.
