Getting fullscreen message to work
First off I’d like to say that I’m new to max/msp and jitter. I’ve been reading the tutorials and I’m learning quite a bit. These programs are really great!
Now on to my question. I’ve opened a jitter patch named LindenPlume.pat. It is in examples>jitter-examples>video>misc… It _does_ have a feature of "fullscreen, but not exactly the way I want it to. I want to render the green plant-ish image thats rendered inside the patcher window in a seperate jit.window, and then I want to make THAT window fullscreen so I can press on my "print screen/sysRq" key. That way I can use that image and paste it in Microsoft Photo Editor or some other photo editing program. I’ve tried looking at other patches that do what I want them to do already, but I’ve had no luck. For some reason the fullscreen mode enlarges too much so that I see the individual pixels and it looks bad.
Any ideas on how I could get this to work? I kind of need to get this on a cover of an essay for a project for tomorrow so any help is greatly appreciated.
you could use the jit.desktop object to capture the image directly
and save it out. Check the help files for the object.
on the floor there’s a long wooden table/on the table there’s an open book/
on the page there’s a detailed drawing/and on the drawing is the name I took

Found the object, checked the help file, but I dont see how I can integrate it into the patch. I feel like I’m going to be making a lot of questions tonight. :/
>From what I gather of what you are experiencing, it sounds like you want
the image to go fullscreen without getting pixelated, but when it
enlarges, instead of a smooth image you get big blocky pixels. There
are a few ways you can approach this problem:
1. use @interp 1 on the jit.window. This will give you linear
interpolation, which will look a bit smoother and might be enough for
2. increase your working resolution. This will probably reduce your
frame rate, but you’re working on a still image anyways. It’ll look
much sharper this way.
3. Do a screen capture of the small window, and then take that into
Photoshop (or whatever) and use their high-quality upsampling tools.
That works! Thanks a lot for the help guys, it came out pretty good.
