Matrix~ or scripting in Jitter?

Hi all,
I am trying to do a sort of video patchbay in my vj app. I wonder if
there is a jitter object that behaves like MSP matrix~, since it looks
like I can’t connect matrix~ outlets to objects whose inlets expect
matrix/video streams.
I would try with a jitter.matrix~ object to do this if it exists, or
should I go the more time-consuming scripting way? Thank you,
Ale

Hi Alessandro,
An important aspect of jitter to understand early on is that the
messages passed along those green patch coords are just that, max
messages. Don’t let the greeness fool you, it just means it’s a
message starting with jit_matrix (and similarly for textures as
jit_gl_texture). So, for routing and flow control all of the usual
max objects will work on jitter messages. The equivalent max object
for matrix~ is router. It should work nicely for you.

best,
wes
