    Hi all!

    I am using Processing with MadMapper (a projection mapping program) via syphon. I already found the code (below) to get the processing talk to MadMapper via Syphon which works. BUT the thing is I have no idea how that works and therefore I can’t really customize my Processing sketch code.

    What I kinda understand is that you have to create canvas to use syphon to talk to other program (like MadMapper). But what I don’t understand is that;

    What is “import codeanticode.syphon.*;”?

    Do you always have to write “PGraphics” before canvas? What is it?

    If you can please let me know I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    import codeanticode.syphon.*;
    PGraphics canvas;
    SyphonServer server;

    void setup() {
    size(400,400, P3D);
    canvas = createGraphics(400, 400, P3D);

    // Create syhpon server to send frames out.
    server = new SyphonServer(this, “Processing Syphon”);


    Hi Chako

    So, a lot of these are basic Processing questions likely better served on the processing forums, and not specific to Syphon.


    import codeanticode.syphon.*;”?

    This tells Processing to import the Syphon library for Processing to use. The codeanticode part is because that Syphon library was written by 🙂

    PGraphics is a variable type, processing graphics, its the ‘canvas’ type that Processing uses in this case.

    Id suggest you hit up the processing forum and docs to understand how to configure /customize your drawing! Good luck!
