Newb: Can Jitter batch import images and sequence them?

Hi, I’m a music producer who wants to get into the world of installation video production. i think jitter might be too advanced for me, but i’m wondering if it does things like take a ton of images and set them up in a sampler type instrument where you can play back different sequences of images by holding down a key on your keyboard. does cycling ’74 ever have plans to release a version of Jitter that has preconfigured setups that you can’t really edit? (sort of like reaktor’s spinoff products?)

They’re the work of different people with what I think of as
different approaches
to the use of the tool, but both Livid Union and VDMX are end-user applications
built using Max that are well worth a serious look on your part, if
this is your
interest. I’m sure there are others, of course.

Thanks for the response. I checked out the applications and they definitely look cool. It appears that VDMX is mac only so I’ll take a closer look at Livid Union. It sure would be nice to learn how Jitter works one day though :)

If you want to do it in Jitter here’s a method:

Make all your images the same size and throw them into a folder. Use
ubumenu to get the listing of files and read them into a 3D matrix.
Once in the 3D matrix, you can access them randomly by indexing into
the 3rd dimension. That’s all there is to it.
