These are chat archives for brunchboy/afterglow
A live-coding lighting controller, building on the Open Lighting Architecture with Clojure and bits of Overtone.
As for me, almost no clj/afterglow past few months :( full focus on making my device/firmware design proper robust and modular/IO agnostic, with it its own lil rendering loop of adjustable effects working incoming pixel data...
Still all about using afterglow as a hub: running trad fixtures, providing ctrl data for the strips, interfacing with Max<->Live for sequencing etc.
But scaling up, animation data is simply (and unsurprisingly) better sourced from existing, purpose-built and performance-optimised tools - jitter, madmapper, whatnot.
But since I’m not a real programmer, just trying to become one (soon enough, if I can keep up my current learning curve), last having used c++ way back in high school... the finer points of it are proving... tricky ;) Still, cool shit in the pipe for sure.
Point of spiel: @James could I maybe catch you on skype some time? Got lots of questions and something of a pitch for you.
