jit.pack planecount

February 12, 2006 | 9:21 pm

Hi,

what does the planecount message to jit.pack actually do ?

I was hoping to use it to limit the number of planes of my matrix to
the ones i really use..
for instance I want to pack some planes together, maximum eight, so I
use a [jit.pack 8].
but once in a while I want only six, so I send [planecount 6] to my
jit.pack, which I expected to result in jit.pack ignoring the last two
inputs ?
but the planecount message doesn’t seem to make any difference.

what am I missing ?

ciao,

Joost.

Unfortunately this is not dynamic in jit.pack. I might suggest using
scripting, or jit.pack from js/java, or possibly jit.expr or exprfill
method for jit.matrix (e.g. planecount 6, exprfill "mat0.p[0]" "mat1.p
[0]" "mat2.p[0]" "mat3.p[0]" "mat4.p[0]" "mat5.p[0]")
