Introduction to Processing
Before we write any Processing programs, let’s take some time to read one. The following is a short example of a Processing sketch that draws a picture using Processing’s built-in drawing tools. Read it and try to determine roughly what it does before executing it.
As you complete the following tasks, note that each of the commands has a real-world action that it approximates.
- Type the sketch into Processing as-is, and execute it. Does it look anything like you imagined by examining the code?
- Tinker with the parameters for each of the following:
Make at least five alterations to the sketch by manipulating these parameters.
- an image of your results, and
- a description of the parameters you changed to make the alterations.
Share these with a neighbor, and provide critical feedback.
