The course focuses on exploring multitouch interaction to create engaging experiences with digital media. Multiple devices will be used, with an emphasis on mobile phones/tablets and the iOS platform. Other devices and platforms will also be discussed.

The main development environment for the course will consist of openFrameworks (oF) with Xcode. Students should have previously attended the Software Studies for Media Designers course, or demonstrate having acquired equivalent skills. Students are required to plan, develop, document and present a project at the end of the course. Continue reading

openFrameworks iOS audioInput example

In openFrameworks iOS 0.9.8, the audioInput example doesn’t seem to run. I found this solution:

“The audioinput example in the 9.0 release compiles and runs, and can play sound, but doesn’t receive any audio input. I removed the ofSoundPlayer, and now the audio input does work. so I guess there’s a conflict between ofSoundStream and ofSoundPlayer”

ofPixels, camera usage

The technique for reading data from images has changed in openFrameworks, and the included examples have not yet caught up with this (as of v.0.9.8). With the help of Alex van Giersbergen and Sourya Sen, we’ve prepared an example to illustrate this, which can be dowloaded here:
pixelsTest

Sourya also recommends this related blog post: https://processing.org/tutorials/pixels/

To use the camera (for example to run the ImagePicker or VideoGrabber examples) you will need to update the ofxiOS-Info.plist by right-clicking in an empty area, add lines and then pick Privacy-Camera… and/or Privacy – Photo Library… and add any text there (thanks Gurden Batra).
