LCD and fullscreen

January 14, 2010 | 9:02 am

Im using the colorblobs object by Charlie deTar (based on Momeni concepts) (Nice interpolation interface) I need it to work for fullscreen. It uses LCD object for visuals. Can the LCD object do fullscreen. Didnt find any in documentation. Any way around?

not as far as i know…do you have jitter? jit.lcd could do what you need.

Ok?! Maybe I could hack the original object and change lcd to jit.lcd. Is it just some "fullscreen" command from a messagebox?

Just found out that inside the colorblobs folder there is an object called colorblobs-to-jit.lcd.pat

I return if I have problems implementing it. Thanks for the jitter clue, anyway

Are you using jit.lcd with jit.window and messagebox "fullscreen 1"? (By the way what is the key to escape fullscreen. esc doesn work. I had to press command q to get out (and then cancel quiting)

Ok. I figured out the escape problem

Another thing:
jit.lcd to jit.window seems to be the solution. jit.window creates a new little window which may appair in fullscreen. jit.window can according to the help-patch it can display mouse-movements from the right outlet when you connect "idlemouse 1" (messagebox) to the input.
When I go fullscreen I would like jit.window to scale up the mouse-detection area to fit the full screen. Currently its only detecting mousemovement in the area where the litle jit.window is positioned before I go into fullscreen. So if the jit.window is originally in the upper right corner of the screen it only detects mouse-movement in this area when I go to fullscreen.
Is there an option for this?

i forgot it.

and how did you fix the problem of togging out of fullscreen mode?

for ESC: [key] –> [sel 27] –> toggle fullscreen
