If you need something much more true to the laws of physics, you can look at this demo:
@mark great session, although using MIDI in Isadora for quite a while, you can always learn. Was working last year on a project with a brainsensor connected to piano and drone synthesizers in Reason. Although a EEG brainsensor as such is a simple controller, it needs a lot of handling which is controlled in Isadora. Also the sound triggering and musical evolution, related to brainwave intensity and brain state are managed by Isadora. The baseline is that no other physical intervention is taking place and that the resulting sound is unique for its moment in time. Fun :-)
My 3D ropes actor assignement. Not sure if replying here is the way to post an assignement, but here it is. I tried to mimik watching algae move whilst floating above them with a snorkel. Summer feelings came up.
I've got a bit of trouble in properly "repelling" the algae with the mousewatcher (possibly I got lost somewhere in rotating spaces). Anyway it kind of works.
Older machines may struggle a bit, mine almost hits the 50% load.
Cheers to all of you, (justy noticed that "all of you" sounds pretty similar to "I love you" ... )
@dillthekraut I wanted to have the movie loop at the position it is playing at a particular moment. the patch repeat2.izz I posted above archieves that, I guess now there are two solutions for the same problem.
@dillthekraut That looks brilliant. All these suggestions look great. It took a while for responses to come so I didn't realise anyone had responded but I've just finished touring my last project and started on the one with the interactive walls. I've got a lot of tech and experimentation to begin but this is a fantastic starting point. I got a kinnect for £8 and a webcam and am away from home for 2 months so I'll have a play with those then try out the Pi/Arduino/touchboard suggestions in the new year. I'll share my progress.
Therefore would the min and max value be smaller number then I have identified
As I understand it, your out min and out max values should be the min and max values that you would like, ie -2 and 2 for the movie player. Try changing the limit-scale actor to those values and see if that improves things
Question: Are you currently working on building the Isadora Patch for this project yourself? I've been meaning to play more with the Kinect and skeletal tracking via Processing for a while, (since it has been on my ever-growing list for a number or months), so I could dive into building a skeleton of an Isadora Patch around your concept if you'd like.
