Forums > Max For Live

I want to create a video patch(?)

March 6, 2013 | 6:53 pm

Hi

Extremely new to Max for Live but, from what I understand, it will give me the ability to do everything I do in my live show with more options which is very exciting. I’m new to the forum so I apologize if I’m going about this the wrong way. Anyway I want to FIND or learn how to create or modify a patch that does what JAM2 (Just Add Music 2) was attempting to do OR, more preferably these things:
-Plays quicktime video with audio ( similar to midividi by mapmap) *as session clip would work too though. possibly better*
-Audio’s volume is controllable
-Cue points are assignable and can be recorded into a sequence, quantized, etc. THIS IS THE MOST MAJOR FEATURE THAT I’M LOOKING FOR. I feel that I would be able to find work arounds for the other obstacles if I can get this feature.
- (Unnecessary but would be nice) triggered clips can have effects (of 1 or any kind) assigned to them

Again, If I went about this the wrong way I apologize, and thanks for reading it in the first pace.

hi Willie.

you should definitely check out the jitter tutorials, as well as look at the Vizzie objects and introductory videos.

there’s a lot of information to process, but everything you want to do is easily doable.

here’s a patch to get you started. it shows how to store quicktime cue points in a coll object.

good luck!

Now I need to figure out what a coll object is :) . Ironically, my motion graphics professor saw a clip of my live set and recommended Max. I told him I had Max for Live and he gave me this book http://www.amazon.com/Composing-Interactive-Music-Techniques-Ideas/dp/0262731398
