It was great to see and hear from you all!

We wrote this short summary. If I missed something let me know and I’ll update the comment, or add your thoughts, ideas or images below :slight_smile:

Yann, Ricardo, Naoto, Kazik, Fred, Edwin, Boyd, aBe joining from Seattle, Paris, The Hague, Kölln and Berlin. We saw multiple projects between 19:30 and 22:30 by:

Boyd presented an overview of using OPENRNDR in video production workflow. How to deal with asset management and using orx-file-watcher to hot-load json files.

We mentioned the possibility of sharing Idea live-templates for OPENRNDR which convert short keywords into code blocks and help coding faster.

Ricardo Matias showed programs he wrote using his own panel system that allows loading remote images as textures, re-arranging panels, tweaking designs by moving and rotating elements. The system has a tool bar and the different tools allow drawing and modifying shapes in different ways. He plans to release it eventually after further testing and cleaning up the code. A short clip of his tools in action: //

Kazik showed how he has used OPENRNDR in his interactive, Kinect based installations in events in Berlin and Denmark. Some of the works can be seen at // //

Edwin gave an overview of vector art tools, improved clipper api and changes to the CompositionDrawer.

See you on the next one!
