max pach into max for live

How much work needs to convert a Max pach into Max for Live?
Are there some automatic ways to convert it?

The amount of work ranges from 0 to infinite, meaning that some patches don’t need any conversion and some patches can’t be converted at all, due to certain limitations of M4L.

The limitations are few, but still.. The ones which you might encounter when porting patches is the limited space for your interface (a "bar" instead of the optional whole screen), when dealing with midi specific patches you might have issues when using specific channels and such. However, that’s more of Live than M4L limitation.

Another one could be sending msp data from one patch to another. afaik that is also not possible.

But apart from that… It heavily depends on the patch, but I think most of them shouldn’t give (too) much trouble for porting.

I have not found any good documentation to "How to do it" I still wonder how… Bugger! If someone can point me a really NEWBIE tutorial, please, let me know!
