CoverFlow interface

March 19, 2012 | 3:23 pm

Hi all,

Its been a while that I don’t come here…
I’m about to develop an interface somehow similar to mac’s Cover Flow, to display many images moving right to left, zooming, etc… also i will run some videos in the background.
Last time I worked on max I remember the best way to do that it would be by using jit.gl.multiple and a jit.gl.texture.

I would like to know if anyone has some ideas to best approach such a patch.
Any general recommendations?

Please expert users, drop me a line just to know if I’m missing something important :)

THANKS!

i think, that jit.gl.multiple + texture would be great.
personaly only thing that i can reccomend is to put textures to poly :)

i think the jit.anim.path object would be helpful for something like this.

here’s a patch showing the basics.
let me know if you have any questions.

Hey thanks so much napentro and Robert!
Robert I’m looking at your patch. It looks like i will get some good tips there.

I just posted a question related to this patch:

It is about alpha issues in jit.gl.multiple.
Feel free to have a look at it.
thanks!
