Spirocode Development

Versions 1, 2 and 3 of the script I have built using the processing programming language. Unfortunately I am struggling to embed the Java end of the applet into blogger, hence the non-functional link in my last post. I am really pleased with the way that I have made the colour evolve with every transform (V2), but also opened up a new field of sound reactive form at different increments of the rotation (V3), this made me realise that by syncing the bars of a song with half or quarter of a turn, a different pattern will emerge from different songs. To show you what I mean by this the last v3 still displays a single clap which, when repeated, could form the patterns I am discussing. In versions 2 and 3 the pattern of the Spirograph can also be modified with the value of mouseX.

v1


v2


v3




Although this is an extremely interesting and satisfying method of producing some interesting animations. I am slightly concerned at the amount of time it has taken up for a relatively uninspiring result. I am also open to skepticism that it does not really constitute animation as the drawing is fully automated through the code.

I like how you've got Watch Highlander tab in firefox.lol. V2 is Sick! I'll have to see that in action.
