mac OSX to windows XP problems

I know this has been posted before, but most of them were pretty old and I couldn’t find the answer I needed.

Right now I have a working , max 5.0 patch in OSX that uses jit.qt.grab to open connection to a webcam and then a series of jit.rota / jit.scalebias / jit.op objects to manipulate the video

I’ve replaced jit.qt.grab with jit.dx.grab and I’m communicating with my webcam just fine , but the video isn’t traveling through the rest of my patch and ending up in the output

my output window is just solid black,

it sounded like both jit.qt.grab and jit.dx.grab output into identical formats, matrix that can be manipulated and displayed in a jit.window ,

whats going on?

Ive got Direct x 9 , quicktime 7.6 and even tried WinVIG without any luck

do you need to convert footage from jit.dx.grab into another matrix to get it working? I’m installing a demo of max onto my windows machine to troubleshoot the issue but any help would be fantastic.

Hopefully anyone else dealing with this problem will find this useful, I’ll post any updates if I can get this working

just ran the feed through

jit.matrix 4 char 800 600

before pushing it into jit.scalebias and everything else I have going on , no luck, still black

runtime 5.0 and 5.1 , same results

more likely to get a response by posting a simple patch illustrating your problem.
