MMF-Fantastick : Max Multitouch Framework for Fantastick on iPad, iPhone & iPod-touch
I’m happy to share this « framework » for Max & Fantastick.
(Fantastick is a free app for iPad, iPhone & iPod-touch : http://pinktwins.com/fantastick/ )
MMF-Fantastick is an extension of MMF (Max Multitouch Framework) : a set of abstractions to control max user interface directly within a multitouch screen.
MMF-Fantastick will draw on your iDevice (in Fantastick) a copy of all UI objects of your Max patch, and let you control them directly from the multitouch screen of your device.
It’s really easy to configure, fast, bi-directionnal.. and free !
have a look at this video :
– first, install and configure Fantastick on your iPad (http://pinktwins.com/fantastick/ )
(test it with the maxhelp patch)
– download & install MMF-Fantastick from http://code.google.com/p/mmf/downloads/list
(copy it anywhere in your max search path)
– open MMF-Fantastick_template.maxpat
(Fantastick works much better with an ad-hoc WIFI network, without WEP encryption)
this project was initiated in the Virage project.
The idea : control max user interface directly within a multitouch screen.
This « framework » consists in a set of max abstractions. to « multitouchize » a patch, you just need to place an « mmf.interface » abstraction in your patch, and add to presentation mode and give a name to all the UI object you wish to control with your multitouch screen… and that’s all ! MMF will do the rest…

– cycling’74 Max5 (version 5.0.6 required) – any multitouch interface that sends TUIO messages. MMF has been tested and works fine with : Stantum SMK-15.4 multitouch screen, HP XT2 tablet pc (windows7 + W2TUIO), Demand Evolution + home made multitouch screen + Reactivision or Tbeta , …

mc.pmpd is a set of abstractions built around the pmpd library.
They are made to facilitate dynamic creation and control of pmpd masses, links and interactors.
mc.pmpd requires Max 4.5

pmpd library Universal Binary (author : Cyrille Henry)
pmpd is a collection of object for pd / max. These objects provide real-time simulations, specially physical behaviors. pmpd can be used to create natural dynamic systems, like a bouncing ball, string movement, Brownian movement, chaos, fluid dynamics, sand, gravitation, and more. It can also be used to create displacements thus allowing a completely dynamic approach of pd computing.
