A framework for video input/output within the Pure-data environment, with special focus to Gem (but not necessarily restricted to Gem) should be implemented

this framework should be implemented via a plugin architecture (the various i/o modules are to be loaded at runtime).

it must be made available on all major platforms that are supported by pure-data: linux, os-x, windows



in order to use the framework from within pure-data, "objects" need to be implemented that can load these plugins. these objects should make the video i/o to the already existing video processing libraries in Pure data, including

  • GEM (necessary)
  • pdp (optional)
  • GridFlow (optional)
  • plain pd (optional)


existing libraries should be evaluated and chosen in cooperation with the GEM maintainers.
