I am about to start a new project with vvvv where I will need to somehow export visual output in a vector format. Ideally something like the PDF export function in Processing.
SVG could be nice, but there seems to be limited primitives to be used with it.
I want to do something similar to P.2.2.2 in the Generative Gestaltung book, but it seems its the only example that does not have a vvvv counterpart like most other examples in that book. Does that mean its definitely not possible with vvvv?
Any other suggestions? I just need to be able to somehow save a view of some simple 3d objects (the outlines of them) into a flat vector format of any kind.
@joreg: Well it was a 2-part thing. Sorry, should have been more clear.
The P.2.2.2.01 example not only features an agent, but the possibility to save a .PDF. Most of the examples in Generative Gestaltung are available as vvvv patches, the P.2.2.2 examples being an exception.
So I was wondering, is it because the agent thing can’t be done in vvvv (doubt it) or because the .PDF thing can’t be done in vvvv (almost certainly) or a combination of the 2? I was just surprised that exactly that one is not there.
So back to my original question, what routes can I take if I want to end up with some form of vector output of the outlines of 3D objects, be it .eps, .pdf, .ai, etc. It seems to be possible in Processing, but I would much rather use vvvv. What does Processing use to make it possible to save stuff as vectors so easily. OpenGL ?
