|1 - PROC 1
||Processing: structure, language, intro to programming languages. Object properties. Types of variables
||Go to www.processing.org / download and install processing on your computers. Create your first graphics applet exploring shapes and colors.
|2 - PROC 2
||Basic interactivity, transformations using mouse coordinates and user behaviors. 3D environments. Matrix Push / Pop . Conditions, repeat loops
||Inspired by one of the examples found in Processing's library, create at least 3 applets exploring interactive transformations in space.|
|3 - PROC 3
Create an advanced applet where you exlore the properties of functions and the integration/manipulation of external images and / or video
4 - PROC 4
Advanced applications of Processing, understanding real world examples.
Prepare yourProcessing final projct. More details to be given in class.
