I'm very new at this (programming and shaders) so please bear with me.
I am very fond of the compact form-factor of the RasPi and am having this idea to experiment on it with visual effects and 3d shapes that i could control over TCP/UDP. This could be hooked to a beamer to accompany a live-set of music (with automation directly from the music software) or other arty presentations.
Now i found this wonderfull thing GeeXLab and thought this could be it.
are full game engines and seemed too overkill for the idea and harder to learn as a programming beginner.
Only with Pure Data
i had a fairly easy programming experience.. but i'm willing to get into python for GeeXLab (ofc usefull skill in general). GEM is a visual expansion on PureData but it does not work for RasPi and is severely dated
My first questions about GeeXLab are:
Can it run without the windows manager? (no XWindows, directly from terminal)
Can the whole screen resolution show nothing but the visual programmed? i looked at the demos and they all had descriptions on screen
