of course for most such cases, jit.glue can do the job.

but there are many strange things one could try to do with jitter:

- juxtaposing video screens and specific max interface elements, such
as sound graphs…

- juxtaposing a few windows that are playing directly with the
"direct to window" method

- jit.glue limits the geometric possibilites by keeping all inlets at
the same size, which is not necessarily what you want. it also doesnt
work very well with matrices of different sizes, while it’s very easy
to set the size of multiple jit.windows..

also my intuition tells me that simply juxtaposing separate windows
should be less CPU-intensive than pulling them through jit.glue.
specially if the proportions i want to obtain would require each
video to pass through some jit.scissors first.

or you could use an app called shadowkiller to get rid of all the
shadows in os x

sentence. apologies

you could also use thomas grills wmangle object…

how about just using multiple videoplanes?

you can also use pwindows, a bunch in one big patch, then script their position, size, and layering using commands to thispatcher, to simulate moving windows etc. (this is in addition to changing the video or resolution etc. of each)

Creating user control is not as straightforward as with separate windows, but can be done with transparent buttons, mousestate… and presets or pattrs are of course usable for the parameters to thispatcher. you could get pretty wacky, use something like mtr to record how you move them around, then have that played back — a sequence of the movements you want.

Look on Max object site for windowmanager . I Think thet external can help you. It is only for X.

Im not shore but i think you can use shell commends to ged rid of the shadows. At the moment im on PC and can`t try it but i remember i run in to som object thet can do thet.
Look for SHELL.(http://www.maxobjects.com)

thanks a lot for the hints, i didnt know this object.

unfortunately the source site for the windowmanger object seems to be down.
(maybe apple took some legal action?)

finally it seems that the logical way to go is to use a few videoplanes.
