I followed one of Kottke ‘s links about a programming language for designers called Processing . Through the link, I found a nice little area that had examples of how some people had used the coding and stumbled upon how Motion Theory put together Papa Roach’s “Getting Away with Murder” video. Very cool. (nice “WarGames ” tie-in too)
But that’s not the cool thing. What’s cool, is that they included the source for the effects on the site. While it’s not Open Source, this might be something we’ll see, more video designers putting their scripts online so everyone (who can read code) can see how they did the effects.
I’m now waiting to see who’ll make some Processing to iMovie API, that’s when we’ll see the true innovation.
