Mixing on computer out to 2nd screen w/ no menubars?!

Mixing on computer out to 2nd screen w/ no menubars?!

I want to mix with my max/jitter patch controls on my personal computer screen while the result is projected through the projector.

What are the best ways to do this? (I run Mac OS 10.4.9)

I currently have my output going to jit.window
then I drag that jit.window to the right until it goes onto the secondary projected screen, and then send this window the ‘fullscreen’ message or drag it’s corner till it fills the projection screen. However, the menubar at the top is still visible, reading u0160000001. I want this to dissapear so only my mix is projected.

What are different methods people use to mix their patch and project only the clean ouput for vj situations? I know there are a couple ways to do this and you can probably even configure things in the Mac OS system preferences. I’d like to know what my different options are?
THANKYOU FOR ANY HELP!

I don’t want to have to cover a portion of the projector lense with tinfoil, as this would be embarressing for everyone involved. AND I have to solve this by tomorrow night!

The jitter html files that can be linked from any objects help file will give you the arguments you need for turning off the menu bar for the jit.window.

Make sure the instance of jit.window has the argument @floating 1.

The @fsmenubar 0 attribute should do it. R

I’m sorry to be the slow one here,
can someone tell quickly a couple numbered steps.
I managed copy & paste a few tutorials together and have only a vague understanding of jitter still.

do I write @______in the same jit.window object?
or bang this message into jit.window as an arguement??

yes something like

‘jit.matrix rendername @floating 1 @fsmenubar 0′

the rendername is used for binding opengl rendering objects to your jit.window. If your using openGL in 3D make sure to include @depthbuffer 1.

right now I have

this mixer output patched to jit.window like below:

‘jit.op @op +’
connected to
‘jit.window’

where do I put this
‘jit.matrix rendername @floating 1 @fsmenubar 0′
object?

“@floating 1 and @fsmenubar 0″ are arguments to the jit.window
object. Paste them into that object after your window name.
