“Processing is a programming language, development environment, and online community. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. Initially created to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach computer programming fundamentals within a visual context, Processing evolved into a development tool for professionals. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.” – https://processing.org/
So basically i’m just going to go over what I’ve learnt so far so that myself and whoever so wishes to read this can learn/remember the basics of processing.
Firstly if you go to processing.org it’s easy to find where to download (for free) and install the program. There’s also a Lynda.com tutorial called ‘Interactive Data Visualization With Processing with Barton Poulson’
^^^^ Here I’ve created a space to add text and notes, starting with the name of the project. Then I created the canvas size, changed the background colour, created a rectangle and circle object then changed their colours and outlines.
In Here ^^^^^^^^^ it’s introducing the use of setup, void and integers.
Here ^^^^ is using xpos xspeed ypos yspeed to move the coordinates. Plus the use of random speed and colour.
And here ^^^^^^ changing it up so that you can use the mouse to move your object.
