List of Programming Environments for Designers
Yesterday I asked Twitter this question: "I'm looking for examples of software that comes close to the idea of an IDE for graphic designers. Anything comes to mind?".
I'm not as much interested in PD or MAX-like environments, as much as a "real" code editor merged with UI controls. Scriptographer is probably as close as you can come, but it's no longer maintained, and the programming environment is not integrated with the UI. I'd love to see a piece of software where you can:
- Generate and draw via code (just like Processing)
- Manipulate the generated shapes and colors via UI tools (just like Illustrator)
- Draw things with the mouse (just like Illustrator)
- Manipulate the shapes and colors via code
This is my default career advice for people starting out in geo/GIS, especially remote sensing, adapted from a response to a letter in 2013.
I'm currently about to start a Geography degree at the University of [Redacted] at [Redacted] with a focus in GIS, and I've been finding that I have an interest in working with imagery. Obviously I should take Remote Sensing and other similar classes, but I'm the type of person who likes to self learn as well. So my question is this: What recommendations would you give to a student who is interested in working with imagery? Are there any self study paths that you could recommend?
I learned on my own and on the job, and there are a lot of important topics in GIS that I don’t know anything about, so I can’t give comprehensive advice. I haven’t arrived anywhere; I’m just ten minutes ahead in the convoy we’re both in. Take these recommendations critically.
Find interesting people. You’ll learn a lot more from a great professor (or mentor, or friend, or conference) o

It's a very simple way to create an interactive animation based on video material. Hover over the image to go through the animation.
I used Final Cut Pro to crop and export the frames of a short video sequence, which I then stitched together into a single film strip using ImageMagick:
