Welcome to my How To Blog. Here you will find cool stuff that I've tried and liked to add to your sets. I will add tutorials that I've personally learned from as I think of them or anything new and exciting.
This first entry uses Microsoft Kinect and Quartz Composer for Mac. Quartz Composer is Mac only. I know sorry PC users. However, please check out the tutorials section by Vidvox for VDMX. Vidvox Tutorials Link. That should keep you PC users busy :).
I will state that Synapse will run on Windows just not QC. See, it's not all bad.
Now you'll need to download Xcode to use Quartz Composer and will need an Xbox Kinect to get started. That being said, you can still use Quartz Composer without a Kinect, just not for this project.
WALKTHROUGH AND LINKS
This explains all the steps from start to finish. Please use the first link as it explains everything below in more detail, but wait... there's more. Like a tie in with Ableton. Maybe there's something you can do with Synapse for Windows/Mac, and Ableton. There is a sample project file too.
Here's the tutorial video to get you started below.
