I’m thrilled about the recent development @ OpenProcessing.

For the uninitiated, Processing is an “open-source programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions.” You can download it for free at

Seen the new iTunes visualizer? That was initially made in processing by flight404. The flocking birds in this promo for FOXMovies were also made in Processing.

Great things about Processing:

  1. Free
  2. OpenSource
  3. The potential to create vivid and beautiful visuals

What more could you possibly want?

After you downloaded it you can head over to, get some example code that others have posted, plug it in, and start generating some beauty. Try clicking in the frame below and begin to draw 🙂 Right-click to erase everything and start over.
