apologies for being such an idiot and insulting your forum with my lowliness
I've been having lots of fun with puredata and want to start incorporating some images and possibly video into my stuff.
I have Pd extended - which apparently has GEM included, although I can fins no trace of it.
I've downloaded GEM for mac, but the instructions for installing it make no sense with what actually appears once it's downloaded. The instuctions:
"GEM under Mac OSX
* Download GEM for MacOSX
All this is fine
"* copy folder content to your pd installation, under /gem
* copy or move Gem.PD_Darwin to PDs extra folder
* start with additional parameter -lib gem"
These are not fine for me..I don't appear to have a pd installation folder...just the app.
I also don't seem to have anything called Gem.PD_Darwin
I've tried about a million variations on the correct link in the startup menu of pd to load up GEM but it never works.
I'm a bit exasperated now...and desperate enough to show myself up as a muppet in front of you guys....pleeease can anyone help me out here?
btw I've been lurking for months and picked up many many wonderful tips and bits of advice on here, for which I thank you all.
