Hello World! Processing is a documentary on creative coding that explores the role that ideas such as process, experimentation and algorithm play in this creative field featuring artists, designers and code enthusiasts. Based on a series of interviews to some of the leading figures of the Processing open programming platform community, the documentary is built itself as a continuous stream of archived references, projects and concepts shared by this community.
It is the first chapter of a documentary series on three programming languages -Processing, Open Frameworks y Pure data- that have increased the role of coding in the practice of artists, designers and creators around the world.
The series explores the creative possibilities expanded by these open source tools and the importance of their growing online communities.
If you work as a 3D artist and modeller then at some point you'll probably be asked to make a 3D 'something' for someone. The question then becomes "how much should I charge for 3D modeling"?; it's a tough one to answer. This article, updated for 2010, passes along some thoughts and considerations to help you work out baseline costs, comparisons, rates and the potential income.

This is a technical demo for face substitution technique. The application works in real time and it's developed using the opensource framework for creative coding openFrameworks: openFrameworks.cc
Most of the "magic" happens thanks to Jason Saragih's c++ library for face tracking web.mac.com/ jsaragih/ FaceTracker/ FaceTracker.html. The face tracking library returns a mesh that matches the contour of the eyes, nose, mouth and other facial features.
That way the mesh obtained from a photo is matched to my own face in the video. Applying some color interpolation algorithms from Kevin Atkinson's image clone code: methodart.blogspot.com/ gives it the blending effect that can be seen in the final footage.
The definition of transmedia storytelling and 3 rules to make it better. Most of you know how we believe at Toast that transmedia storytelling, by definition, is synonymous with modern media consumption.
