PureData also was only for sound and music in the beginning. It's not 
specially made for video, but the plugin interface is flexible enough, and 
so was jMax's.

So, in 2001, Alexandre Castonguay brought a few of us together to make us
create the first video plugin for jMax. Things went differently and a few
months later we had two video plugins for jMax: a high-speed one called
VideoDSP (or VDSP) and a flexible one called video4jmax, which by the end
of the year had its name changed to GridFlow.

Oh, and as far as I can tell, IRCAM has destroyed the mailing-list
archives of the old jMax, which conveniently removes most traces of the
existence of former 3rd-party developers.
