Beginner Jitter Question..

March 30, 2008 | 7:51 pm

Hi everyone, Im new to this forum..

So thought I would start off with what there is bound to be more of.. Questions!

..I have been using Max/MSP for a while now for midi and synth aplications, however I’m thinking getting involved with some jitter.

When I play live I build up tracks by playing everything in live and looping/manipulating them as I go. The question is, can I loop the audio AND the visual? I was thinking of buying a few cheapo cameras and attaching them onto each instrument..

Is this do-able?

Has anyone done this before?

My google/forum searches weren’t fruitful.

It certainly is.
Thomas rutgers had this set up for live performances:
1/ laptop for audio looping
2/ additional PC with 4 cheapo USB cams for video looping.
the USB cams were mounted on his instruments.
there was no sync between audio and video PC.

after some experimentation he found out that the visuals were not
that interesting
and he abandoned the approach.

at http://www.thomasrutgers.nl you will find a clip of one of his performances.
the video you see there actually is not from the USB cams.
but the kind of video treatment you see on the web page (capturing,
looping, compositing)
is very similar to what he did live with the USB cams.

jit.matrixset is the essential object for looping.
for compositing check out jit.gl.videoplane
