Is it possible to create jpegs (stills) from the jit.window?

I am using the jit.conway object and I wold like to have a collection of images of all the generations. I can use of course the screenshot thing but for 323 frames that will be a tedious task. Is there a way to do this in Max?

If you just want the jit.conway output in a jpeg, send it to a
jit.matrix and use the exportimage jpeg message.

That i a way, but it only takes the white pixels, not the black background. And still that’s not automated (323 click and save is not so fun)

ok,ok,ok !
of course !
But sometimes the forum is very helpful, for example if you’re saturated, or don’t find the soluce.
Don’t you think so ?
Did you memorize the full tutorial ?

Jit.conway creates whte pixels on a black background.When I make a jpg, it only takes the white pixels (that is what is active, the black background is actually not a part of the whole thing, 8but I want that background as well because otherwise i can not se where the white pixels are)

Sounds like you need to set the alpha channel to all on. As always,
I’d recommend posting clear clear and simple example patches that
illustrate the problem. This way people can more easily offer
assistance with issues.

almost it… that’s not really automation though. use sprintf:

sprintf exportimage my_file%ld.jpg

the %ld will be an increasing integer number that you feed it, so you get:

my_file1.jpg
my_file2.jpg

look to [opendialog] or [dropfile] to set your folder path…lots of postings on here about that. it won’t necessarily save in the same folder as your patch, at least it hasn’t for me in the past. (this would be a great default setting btw.) it’s saved in both the Max5 program folder as well as the last place I saved an earlier patch. so to be sure, use the full path with your sprintf.
