I did not realize how long this was going to take. After many hours, I was still having trouble to getting my OpenFrameworks compiling. I had to cut my losses and ended up trying to first get empty project to compile, then adding some animation (see above gif). I know, but it was a bleak situation.
I was able to get the included SVG add on to work, using my own SVG and changing the behavior a little.
I didn’t post this code to GitHub because…both programs are only small deviations from the example projects.
This was my first time using OpenFrameworks and I am working on a Windows machine.
