I have a general idea of what I want to do and how I want to achieve it. I plan to use the Vizzie analyzr object in Max to give me RGB values of whatever a computer’s webcam takes in (using the Grabbr object, or however it’s spelled). Then, using these three values numeric values, I’d like to manipulate tone generators, filters, and whatever else I can come up with to have an interactive and somewhat unique experience for whomever stands in front of the computer.
I guess I am looking for suggestions as to how to implement the RGB values. I want to extend the function of these to more than just using them as frequencies for tone generators. I thought it would be nice to extend things like conditional statements (‘if the Red is more than X, this other ring mod turns on instead’ kind of idea…), and variable processing effects.
