All of this sounds great, I do have one question though.
Why did you choose to implement your own data processing concept, instead
of using the pix objects from gem ?

Image data is inherently different from audio data, therefore the gain you
have from being able to reuse the pd signal processing objects (which are
optimized for audio calculations) doesn't seem to be worth it.

Or put the other way, what was it that you didn't like about them
GEM way ?
