Adding Commas to Large Numbers

November 10, 2006 | 6:21 pm

Hello,

I’m showing some dynamic numbers (counting) on top of a quicktime video using jit.lcd (using "moveto X Y, write $1, bang"). When the number gets relatively big, I would like to add commas in between for better readability (e.g 5,000,333).

What kind of object or message would be helpful for this case?

Thanks a lot!

i think this might be platform dependent (mac / pc)

but on a mac if u want to display a comma u have to put character before it so it doesnt seperate the message in two…

also check p.117 of max46topics.pdf
