Im doing some research into live drawing/music performance, as part of this i am building examples in pd, vvvv, max etc... So far i have pd working with a graphics tablet and have built a basic drawaing application allowing you to draw to a window, erase things etc... Now, here's my problem, the way i am doing the drawing bit is by switching buffering off on the gem window, so i can just move a circle around and it draws lines. This is the easy way to do it, but its not good enough... my plan is to be able to draw something, then allow the movement of that object to be controlled over midi, however, this would obviously not be possible as the window would have buffering turned off, so it would just draw crazy ass mess when a finished drawing was moved across the window. The only way around this i can think of is to come up with another way of doing the drawing, i.e. one that doesn't involve turning the buffering of on the gem window....
ok, long post... any ideas people? or examples of drawing tools done in pd or vvvv?
thanks in advance
