jit.window alpha channel?

May 16, 2010 | 8:22 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone know if it is possible to fade out a jit.window to reveal the background behind it?

I’ve tried searching through the forum but not come up with anything useful. I have also had a look at all attributes for jit.window but nothing there either apart from @visible which only takes an on or off state. I really need to be able to change the alpha value.

Thanks in advance,
Michael

Hi
a different approach: with jit.desktop you can feed specific screen-content into a matrix. I know that this is not dynamically…

Hi,
Thanks for that. This would be ideal but it seems to take up a huge amount of CPU time, especially when I increase the resolution. Is there any other way you can think of which is less CPU intensive?
Thanks again

I don’t know how to drop the cpu time while keeping the resolution, but my idea was a dirty workaround, you should somehow try to address the transparency parameters for the osx cocoa interface (or something similar on windows)

Oh right. That sounds quite complicated but I will look into it. So am I right in thinking there is no way to do this within Max/Jitter itself then?

none at all.

i remember vade coded up a transparent window using cocoa framework (i think).
check out his blog if interested, there might be source code.

Hi,
I thought I’d managed to work around this problem but it just keeps causing further problems. Thanks for the link but I had trouble finding the code on Vade’s page. Any idea what the project was called?
Thanks a lot

Also, is there any way of adjusting the alpha of the jit.window using java script does anyone know?
