Also, for jMax 2.5, there were three third-party plugins for video. The
only one to have been ported to Pd is called GridFlow, created by myself
with the initiative and encouragement and sponsorship of Alexandre
Castonguay and artengine.ca.

There was also VideoDSP (aka VDSP or Pixonix), written by Christian
Klippel and Etienne Deleflie. However this cannot be ported to Pd, AFAIK,
as Pd is lacking a feature: VideoDSP *really* uses DSP chains for video.
This makes it fixed-width, fixed-height, fixed-framerate, but damn fast.
=) But this means it needs a very-high-bandwidth DSP, with a sample rate
of (for example) 9216 kHz (!!!) for 480*640 RGBA 8:8:8:8 in 30 fps.

A third plugin was a straightforward OpenGL wrapper that (AFAIK) can be
pretty much learned by picking any OpenGL book. It's called DIPS. However
we were never hearing about the authors (who were japanese and wrote only
one mail on the list in three years...).
