Attributes for jit.noise?

May 6, 2006 | 10:12 pm

Hi,

I’m interested in changing the number of planes and the size of the matrix from a jit.noise object in realtime. As far as I can see from the documentation, attributes are not implemented for jit.noise (?). Would it be possible to implement this feature?

Thanks,
Alexander

Ahh, but they are. This is a good time to point out something that’s
crucial to understanding the structure of jitter. Almost all jitter
objects have an internal matrix operator or mop object internal to
them. It’s the mop object that holds the planecount, type, and dim
attributes. Since jit.noise has an instance of mop, it also has those
attributes.

A second crucial thing to point out is the attribute/message
contextual menu. Once you know that this thing exists, your patching
will never be the same. On a mac hit ctrl+option+click on a jitter
object and on windows I think it’s alt+shift+click (or right click).
This will pull up a menu that tells you all of the attributes and
messages the object support

Alternaitively, you can send any jitter object the message
getattributes and a list of attributes will come out of the last
outlet. If you look at the jit.noise help page in your web browser,
you will notice something that says "Matrix Operator: in[0] out[0]"
You can click on "Matrix Operator" and see the help for the mop
object.

hope this helps,
wes
