9780470375488: Algorithms for Visual Design Using the Processing Language

As the first book to share the necessary algorithms for creating code to experiment with design problems in the processing language, this book offers a series of generic procedures that can function as building blocks and encourages you to then use those building blocks to experiment, explore, and channel your thoughts, ideas, and principles into potential solutions. The book covers such topics as structured shapes, solid geometry, networking and databases, physical computing, image processing, graphic user interfaces, and more.

From the Back Cover:

Experiment with design problems to create 3D animations, GUIs, and more

Are you ready to dramatically enhance your programming skills by experimenting with design problems in the digital domain? Kostas Terzidis shows you a series of generic procedures that serve as building blocks for you to test, explore, or channel your ideas and principles into solutions. He uses the Processing computer language to walk you through advanced algorithms and techniques. You'll then gain a strong understanding of the complexity involved in today's design problems as you construct your own customized algorithms.

  • Develop geometric entities and combine the elements into complex shapes
  • Design graphical user interfaces using standard library components and connect them to geometrical actions

  • Process images as an alteration of a local area or as a global effect in the form of a filter

  • Build single and multiple animated objects as well as simulate dynamic behavior

  • Produce the behavior of a 3D object rotating in space

  • Create the impression of a continuous surface out of discrete points

  • Use, connect, and control devices in the form of feed, feedback, and multiple feedback systems
