Step by Step video on how to add ofxSyphon addon to an empty OpenFrameworks project. View in full screen.
It’s hard to read the framework search path. It is: “$(SRCROOT)/../../../addons/ofxSyphon/libs/Syphon/lib/osx”
Always wanted to figure out shadows.
Simple approach in OpenFrameworks. Cleaned it up and put it in an addon.

Based on past experiences, I decided not to submit to the Mac App Store. You may have to change your preferences to use the application. System Preferences > Securty & Privacy > Allow Applications Downloaded from > Anywhere
Blair Neal has a great blog post about configuring an OSX computer to run an installation for ever. http://blairneal.com/blog/installation-up-4evr/.
I have been working on a ofxMacUtils addon with utils for making this process easier, so you don’t have to manually adjust the settings. It is still being developed, but thought it might be useful.
It has been tested on OSX 10.8 – 10.10 and OF v0.08. Any feedback would be appreciated ( through github, the comments on my blog don’t seem to be functioning properly).

We like to use the energy saver schedule in the system preferences to set the computer to shut down and start up at specific times. Avoiding third party apps for this leads to a more universal understanding of how to set the schedule. Most system admins will know how to set the schedule via system preferences. However, one issue that I have run into recently (OSX 10.10) is this message.
The computer is either trying to restart or shutdown based on the schedule or manually selection and the OF app is preventing it from completing that task.
The addon includes an example for avoiding this issue.
Bass Shapes is a stand-alone computer application that is visually stimulated by audio input. Three dimensional primitives are generated and react to the beat of the music using 3d physics. The app was originally intended to be available on the Mac App Store. The app was rejected by Apple who gave the reason “it is not very useful.” Apple suggested adding more features to the app including “multiple scenes/themes, strobe lights, blurring, etc.” The suggestions opposed the original aesthetic, concept and goals, so I decided to release the app for free download for OSX here: http://yellquietly.com/bass-shapes/
The John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes iPhone / iPad application is an interactive documentary about John Lennon’s journey creating his last album Double Fantasy. We developed quite a few interactive experiences that lead to over 40 minutes of interactive content.
The app is available for download from the iTunes store John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes.
More information about the app can be found on the official site: http://lennonbermudatapes.com.

We did a bunch of early interactive experiments on the iPad for the project. We also made several tools for creating scenes including a ‘Parallax Editor’ that was used for the side scrolling scenes. The video below shows some of the early-on experiments.
