GridFlow does not use the tilde network. Multidimensional arrays are
streamed through the message network as normal sequences. Video is done by
sending one frame at a time as a 3-D array of dimensions {rows, columns,

Pixonix does use the tilde network to implement a continuous 32 bpp RGBA
video stream, but it'll take a long time before you see it on PD.

Jitter looks pretty much like GridFlow except they have this kind of
distinction between dimensions and planes which i'm not too sure about,
and they have a breathtaking number of complex objects, but at the same
time, lacking several powerful mathematical objects that i consider
