Syphon for Open Frameworks, Public Beta 2
Syphon is a system for sending video between applications. You can use it to send high resolution and high frame rate video, 3D textures and synthesized content between your openFrameworks application other applications and environments.
Syphon for openFrameworks includes one add-on with two new objects, ofxSyphonClient & ofxSyphonServer.
ofxSyphonClient - brings frames from other applications into openFrameworks wrapped in an ofTexture, which can be bound and drawn like any ofTexture.
ofxSyphonServer - allows ofTextures and the whole GLUT scene to be named and published to the system, so that other applications which support Syphon can use them.
ofxSyphonDirectory - lets users browse the shared Syphon directory of all available servers

Mac OS X 10.6.4 or greater Open Frameworks 008 or better
Install ofxSyphon in the addons folder of your openFrameworks installation. Examples projects called example-Basic and example-ServerDirectory is included
Unfortunately the OpenFrameworks Project Generator does not work with ofxSyphon (at the time of writing - OF 0.8.4).
To add ofxSyphon to your project:
- Drag the ofxSyphon addon folder into your project.
- Add a Copy Files build phase to new projects to copy the Syphon framework into the Frameworks folder of the built product.
- Add the location of the Syphon framework (
addons/ofxSyphon/lib/Syphon/lib/osx) to the
Framework Search PathsBuild Setting in your Xcode project.
The included SyphonExample demonstrates these steps.
Use any Syphon-enabled application to send or receive frames. You can use the Syphon Demo Apps to test functionality.
