[PD] PD "Projector", Executables or similar

Hi List,

I'm looking for something suitable to use in developing generative
audio-visual pieces that I can distribute as CDROMs.

At the moment, I'm using Macromedia Director, which does the job, but has
rather limited A-V capabilities. I'd also rather not use a piece of
proprietary software.

Whilst considering other options, such as C++/DirectX, Java and "Processing"
(www.Proce55ing.net), I stumbled across PD, and noticed the following
comments by Guenter, in a recent thread :

PD/GEM looks like an incredibly flexible and powerful A-V development
environment, but am I right in thinking you need both installed and
configured on a target machine in order to run a completed

If so, are there any plans to develop a PD "Projector" or equivalent, so
that performances can be played on machines that don't have PD installed?

Forgive me if any of the above seems idiotic, but your comments,
nevertheless, would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Richard Skelton
