The basic issue I’m currently running into is figuring out if MAX is actually communicating with Arduino. I uploaded the firmata code on arduino and my set up with a single red LED starts blinking but stops after a few seconds. I don’t know if there is only recognition of active communication and my set up on MAX is wrong or if I haven’t loaded all of the necessary software yet.
Here is the basic outline of the system/software link between arduino – max – projector.
I came up with a pretty basic if then statement too which probably will be glitchy, and perhaps I need to rework into a ratio based calculation, where the rate of change of the viewer is taken into consideration to make smoother transitions from video frame to video frame.
