Beginners question

Hi there,

I would like to experiment with Milkdrop-like graphics. However, I would like to read up on the basics. Can anyone recommend a link/book which talks about the calculations/techniques/math needed for these kind of graphics? Or just some keywords I can google for. :-) Not for the programming side, but rather for "what's going on there". I guess reading the source code is probably too difficult?

Thanks,
Jonas

Yea, in the right click menu you use to start milkdrop select 'Configure Plugin'. There is a box on the right under Defaults that reads 'View Docs'. Section '4.c. preset authoring' is basically where to start figuring stuff out...

This also has good info..

http://www.milkdrop.co.uk/guide.htm

'Not for the programming side, but rather for "what's going on there".'

Understanding what's going on there and learning how to program milkdrop are pretty much the same thing. As in, I really don't think you'll truly get a REALLY good grasp on what's going on until you can write presets.

P.s. I think you're in the wrong forum for this question...

Thanks

That looks like a very good starting point (didn't expect to find anything like that in the docs). Thanks a lot!
