Capture animation in OSC setup
Ok, so I have started sending OSC from Bidule to Nodebox.
It works as it should - apart from the fact, that NodeBox apparently isn't built for real time animation. It's a problem, because how can I then create videos of (or play live with) my new sound/osc -> vector animation setup?
Any thoughts? Maybe also about the future of NodeBox? I really want to use it like vvvv on PC.....

You can use
Command ⌘ instead of
Control ^ on Mac

Can you say more about your problem? It sounds like you have the animation working. Is NodeBox too slow to keep up? Is it freezing up from time to time?

Well, it works with limited amount of shapes, but as soon as I use many shapes (with the grid or so) animation starts lagging quite a lot....

Unless there is some significant inefficiency in your network, I doubt there's anything you can do for live performances. You might be able to create videos by saving the animation as either an MP4 or a series of stills and then sync with the recording of the music. You can get much higher frame rates in NodeBox by doing this, but it requires post-processing.
I recently posted a question in the general discussion forum asking if NodeBox could be faster. No responses yet. I think in theory there might be some way to compile NodeBox code and/or run it on dedicated hardware for purposes like this. But I don't have the chops to do anything like that.

Yes, I know. I just hope that the developers will look into this. A version for live processing would make NodeBox a worthy art installation application similar to vvvv and others....
Btw: Do you know of any alternatives for Mac?
There is PD and Max, I guess. Any others?
