Playing multiple videos in one jitter window

Hi all,

I’m fairly new to jitter and I need to trigger between 5 different videos. I have 5 sensors connected and I’d like each one to trigger a unique video onto the window. The videos are coming from different places and have different aspect ratios which get stretched when they go to the window. What’s the best way of doing this?

Thank you

If you want to keep it 2d, you can start by looking at the Jitter Tutorial 14: Matrix Positioning

Try several jit.concats. It might be cheaper to put it in gl land and position jit.gl.videoplanes, but then you’d end up in gl land and not matrix land. Depends on your needs.

Hope this helps!

Also, this should probably be in the jitter forum!

well I don’t actually want to play the videos at the same time. I need to trigger one video to the window at a time and maintain its aspect ratio even when we go to full screen.
