As someone coming from a non-tech background, I’m finding myself constantly frustrated by my ignorance. A lot of this is beginner’s stuff I have to learn, like all of the fundamentals of motion graphics and cameras. But it seems like there’s a chasm between tutorials and larger projects, in any language or software. You get a few particles swirling, then you need API’s to write in code from different languages, and different software/frameworks to interact. Meanwhile, I couldn’t figure out how to properly compile OpenFrameworks project generator from Github and I’m still unclear on how VVVV communicates with all of the folders in its structure.
I’d love to hear from people here. Do you have recommendations? If not, I’d still really like to hear your educational background and how you came to use VVVV.
I’m not opposed to learning on my own including using online University courses (I completed one on C programming), or any tutorials floating around (I did Microsoft’s official C# intro videos). Should I be diving into software engineering? Go learn Processing?
