MathMap Cocoa

Application Overview

Q: What, exactly, is it?
A: MathMap is an image manipulation/creation tool for Mac OS X (Cocoa).
It is capable of compiling/interpreting a mathematical formula and rendering beautiful images/movies according to the given expression.
(If you want to get the most out of it, consider installing the Mac OS
Developer Package because compiled code runs much faster than
interpreted).
Q: Okay, so what can I do with it?
A: Almost everything you can specify in a mathematical formula :).
You can take an existing image and distort it according to
an arbitrary mathematical formula like for example creating
a ripple using a sine expression or creating a gradient.
You can also have it calculate animations by using time-variant expressions and return them in QuickTimeTM format.
MathMapper uses a special language - so take a closer look at
the language reference for detailed information and at the
language tutorial for some ideas.
Q: How do I use it?
A: See the GUI Tutorial for a quick introduction to the interface.
And again, visit the language tutorial for more in depth information.
Q: Are there any screenshots?
