MMJ4M 11: Building Stand-alone Applications

A very short but significant chapter in which I learned to do exactly as its title suggests: I learned how to build a stand-along application. The first image above is from my duplication of one of VJ Manzo‘s patches in the chapter and the second, you may notice, is not a Max patch but it, instead, its very own application running on my Mac. When I got Max/MSP/Jitter, I wasn’t aware that this was one of the possibilities but now I’m thrilled about it! My big, unanswered question for the moment is whether I can make a standalone application that will read and save data from a Kinect without having to install all of the other geeky rigamarole in the system folders, etc. Wouldn’t that be beautiful for distributing interactive dance applications? (Yes, it would, very much….)
