I'm looking for some advice on Processing over Processing JS.
I'm starting an audio-visual project with Processing that I want to exist primarily on the web….
But I have a bunch of questions.
Since I read you can't use libraries with Processing JS, then standard Processing is the way to go because I need libraries like minim.
But the Beauty of JS is it's presentational factors - it just loads straight up - there's no coffee cup… no Processing logo, but worsemore processing gives no feedback to the user whatsoever about whats going on with its download status.
So it's this bind, you want Processing for the libraries, JS for the clean look. Why can't there be a middle ground??
I need half decent control over audio, so then are there ways to pre-load a sketch from a separate splash page? That once the project has finished loading it's simply ready to go… no logo's etc
Also, is there possibility to switch between sketches online… say with a fade or something?
Or would you just build an uber massive sketch that changed over time.
Half the problem of programming I find is this limitation of the aesthetics. Things don't evolve over a narrative period like they do in video or animation. So many processing examples online - it's all stuff limited to it's own little world.
I'd love to break that up by being able to switch and change between sketches.
I know about the Mother project where you can do this offline?
BUt what about something automated on the web?
I know it's a lot of questions.
Hope someone can answer some of them.
