libpd, Leap Motion, and Osc, in Openframeworks

On Mac OS 10.8 using Xcode 5, and openframeworks version 8

  1. Install and test openframeworks from http://www.openframeworks.cc/download/ 
  2. Install and test libpd https://github.com/danomatika/ofxPd (you should be able to run the example programs)
  3. Install and test leap motion https://github.com/ofTheo/ofxLeapMotion  (you should be able to run the example programs)
  4. Install Pd (I installed pd-extended, even though this project is limitied to Pd ‘vanilla’) http://puredata.info/downloads

Note: The Osc addon is already provided with openframeworks distribution. At this point you have everything you need to run the test example.

  • Download the project: http://zerokidz.com/downloads/leadPdTest5.zip
  • Copy the leapPdTest5 folder into the ofx8/addons/ofxLeapMotion folder
  • Launch the xcode project: leapPdTest5.xcodeproj
  • plug in a leap and turn up the volume
  • Compile and run (you may need to compile the openframeworks scheme first)
