Hello people, i been working before with puredata for making tools for vj using opengl and gem.
i was trying to remake the tools in openframeworks because i was thinking that it is going to be faster, but i got surprised when i discovered that they run slower than pd. Maybe theres something im doing wrong. So my first question is:
Is there any way of seeing which processes are speeding down things? how can i see which are the bootlenecks in my program?
The program i made is pretty simple, it consist in nested iterations of 3d elements.
iterating over 3d elements and opengl commands i can create different 3d forms.
for(int i=0; i < NBALLS; i++)
glRotatef(35, 0, 0, 1);
glTranslatef(56, 15, center * 4);
gluSphere(gluNewQuadric(), 30.f, 6, 6);
The thing is that with puredata i can have more iterations than openframeworks until my program begins to speeding down, Do anybody have an idea of why is this?
