Getting ARGB values on jitter

February 28, 2013 | 9:22 pm

Hi I’m completely new with jitter and have to do this project creating music from a video source and have thought of programming a synth to play with the ARGB values that appear on the screen. But i can’t find out how to get these values so that they would update frame by frame. Does anyone know how to do this? Some help would be really appreciated.Thanks in advance

Jitter Tutorials are good starting point, especially

and.

Then, it depends how you want the color values to control your synth…

Hi, thanks for the reply. I’ve looked through all the color tutorials but still can’t achieve what I want to do. I simply want some type of numerical data depending on the quantity of R or G or B on the screen at one precise moment. Is this possible?

perhaps you want to check out the jit.3m object.

Seems to be exactly what I’m looking for. Thanks a lot for the hint.
