Monome Controlling Flash – First Results
Last night I stumbled across Oscar (via Ben Chun, the creator of flosc). It’s a simple Cocoa app that listens for OSC messages and converts them into messages you can access via an XMLSocket in Flash (using Actionscript 3).
I started working on a simple proof-of-concept Flash project last night, and got it all finished up this morning! It creates 128 boxes in a multidimensional array and allows me to trigger their Alpha on and off by pressing my monome buttons.
I’ve got to get back to client work now, but I hope to clean up the code soon and release it in two parts – one will be a generalized class for getting data from the monome (via Oscar) and the other will be the above implementation where you trigger boxes by pressing buttons.
Also, good news on the Flash-for-VJing front: if you run your flash docs from a directory which you’ve whitelisted in your security settings, you can absolutely control your Flash Movies from within VDMX!
