– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

Seems you have to call the “getnfaces” message into cv.jit.faces every time you want to see how many faces are connected.
Next time be sure to copy compressed instead of print screening, it helps us to know exactly what is going on so we can help.

I hope you’re having fun with Max, good luck to you.

Not sure if it helps, especially since it’s a separate application, but might be worth looking into FaceOSC.
