i just don't know too much

hi,

I am only planning to use jitter for this one project so I find tedious to read and go through all the tutorials in depth. I have tried, but i am getting quite frustrated after few days of this trying.

i have an effect i want my video to have, and now i am simply trying to export the results to as good quality movie file as possible.
I’ve tried jit.matrix and jit.qt.movie, and i have managed to give a message export, but i can’t get a movie file out. Here is the effect i am using. thanks for this whoever you were.

from the window below i would connect the jit.qt.movie to the dump out and give a message export to that, but then i don’t know what to do.

thanks

Personally, I bought IShowU ( http://www.shinywhitebox.com/home/home.html ), which works very well. You select a zone on your screen and it records what is displayed. Can be a little CPU and hard drive consuming, working on different hard drives is a good idea.

hi,

i tried the demo of that, but i thought i should be able to get better quality out by exporting it through jitter.

thanks

it is possible isn’t it (to export from jitter)?

look at jit.qt.record

If you want to record some video, with jit.qt.record or with IshowU, you’ll need to have a look at the codec in which you want to record. Maybe that’s why you got some problems with IshowU. If you’re on a mac, Apple Intermediate Codec is quite impressing. On PC, I don’t know…

I’m sorry, I didn’t have a look at your patch when I told you to use IshowU. For this, jit.qt.record is going to be fine. I use an external screen grabber when I need to record GL rendering.

jit.qt.record for recording Quicktime without sound, jit.vcr with sound. Personally I would go for the jit.vcr, even hooking up a silent, yet active audio signal up to the audio inlets, because last I checked it was better synced. Will upload a video that relates tomorrow to:

there ya go. doesn’t cost anything.

thanks for all responses, but I am still not sure how to write to my disk.

I’ve attached jit.vcr to the final screen, and to the jit.vcr i have given a message write. This is pretty much as far as i’ve got. I tried to name the file to be written as it says in the help file. i wrote in the message the name of the file before a dollar symbol and 1, but when i play a file it seems not be recording anywhere anything.

I suppose i just have to wait for the youtube video, but nonetheless thanks. i am one more step ahead

The video will still be another day. Enjoying the weekend. Copy the text below (all of it) and File > New From Clipboard in Max:

No, attach the last/output matrix to jit.vcr (or jit.qt.record if there’s no sound). Then you tell either one to write/stop. Try “write 24. jpeg normal 600″ like in the help file as a start, you could also try mjpega etc. which will be smaller files. I never tell it a filename, I do that in the dialog box that pops up. No $1 needed in your message box in this case.

hi,

after i’ve connected the jit.vcr to the dumpout, created a message write 24. jpeg normal 600 and stop. It says DSP must be enabled before writing. I looked the help file that said create a message (don’t have to connect it anywhere) “; dsp”. I did so, but still the same message appears.

index.php?t=getfile&id=2834&private=0

Just make an object [ezdac~] like in the [jit.vcr] help file, then click it once, to turn audio on.

I’ve never seen the “;dsp” message before, where exactly did you see this?

also, i’m not entirely sure why you want to use jit.vcr if you are not recording sound.

#155795

I made that suggestion. I think jit.vcr is more foolproof than jit.qt.record in that it actually records what you see. Although it looks as though the “realtime 1″ message for jit.qt.record may work now.

The message “;dsp start” does start the signal network.

It would have to be on as jit.vcr expects audio in. Also you have the wrong outlet from the pwindow attached to the vcr–you want the left (matrix) one. You could also go directly from the jit.matrix to jit.vcr.

hi and thanks for all of the responses

now i have managed to record something on my disk. The video file takes up space as a video would, but when i try to play it I just get a blank screen. The duration of the file is, as you can see from the picture, 00:00. Message from the jit.qt.record also says it attempted to close track with no media. this doesn’t sound too good either.

what did you expect to see at the recorded video?
the jit.3m makes it just one color
with a dark move it will be almost black

and maybe add a space between the “24.” and the “dvpal”
-> “write 24. dvpal max 600″

#155799

i want just one color, the average color of each frame. So for example if i would have a blue sky with white clouds i would have light blue frame.

ah
well that works fine here .

did you try adding the space?
or just send a “write” to the jit.qt.record

#155801

yep, it was the space. now it works fine. thanks

hi,

now i have managed to save the video file to the disk, but i am having trouble syncing the sound. At first i thought not to include any, but after seeing the results i changed my mind.

I tried doing it in a video editing program, but the new video file is not running on the same pace as the original video, not even after i changed the frame rate to the same (25fps).
I thought the easiest solution would be to use the jit.vcr and record the sound at the same time as the video. I have managed to turn on the DSP, which i had trouble before (i found it from options/dsp). so now it does not complain about that anymore, but i still can’t record sound.

I am using the spigot message. the letter ‘e’ in the jit.qt.movie and spigot is a name i thought i might have to give in order to make the spigot recognize the file.
