multiple video inputs
i have a project in max that reads reactivision codes x and y and i need to place an image in that place. now i have some problems. i am using jit.gl.slab for multiple video inputs to output more images, but they are masking each other.
so i have a question, how can i get multiple inputs in one window without masking?
If you’re trying to display multiple videos in the same window without blending them together, try using multiple videoplane objects.
For the background image, use:
[jit.gl.videoplane test @blend_enable 1 depth_enable 0 @transform_reset 2 @layer 1]
For each foreground video, use:
[jit.gl.videoplane test @blend_enable 1 @depth_enable 0 @scale 0.5 0.5 0.5 @layer 2]
You can use scale and position messages to change the size and location.
There’s example code in this thread http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=33948
Thank you, it’s working, but now i have another problem, in the background i have live input from dv camera via firewire and on the foreground i have 2 images following the reactivision code. the problem is, max is crashing after a minute when i’m starting to interact with codes.
I’m afraid I can’t run your patch as I don’t have reactivision installed. Looking at the code, though, I would change the metro objects to qmetro and check that the DV firewire drivers are up to date.
i am using mac os, so there is no drivers for sony hdr-hc9e. i changed the metro to qmetro, but it is still crashing. i guess max doesn’t like the live stream input.
Does it crash without a camera installed or if you use a USB web cam?
if i am using isight (internal webcam) it is still crashing, i think there is a problem with the ractivision part, because it is not crashing while i am not interacting with reactivision codes. so now i am searching for better solution or else.. i wil hope for the best.
